At Current, we’re on a mission to enable our members to create better financial outcomes for themselves. Headquartered in NYC, we’re a leading U.S. fintech and one of the fastest growing companies with nearly 4 million members. No matter your title, we’re a team that collaborates on building great products and making an impact together.

Our mobile engineers are responsible for building the full suite of user experiences for our members, leveraging our proprietary backend banking core. The mobile apps are native (Kotlin/Swift) and primarily use gRPC to interface with our backend. Being the primary interface for our members to manage their finances (there isn’t a web app), the mobile experience needs to be highly performant and intuitive to use. This forces our engineers to think through foundational layers of application infrastructure, reusable UI components, and the collection of data that drive these decisions. Join us for an opportunity to work in a fast-moving environment where your work is highly visible and has a direct impact on our members’ financial outcomes!

We are looking for an Android engineer to join our team in New York. This role has a salary range of $160,000 - $215,000.

  • Familiarity working within a modularized app architecture, including unidirectional data flows, MVVM, and use of Gradle modules.
  • Have published and maintained apps on the Google Play Store

An Insider's view of Current

How does your team reward individual success?

The Engineering team actively and immediately shares our individual successes across our slack channels, telling everyone what we did and the impact we had via data. I find it refreshing and really cool that we are able to measure the success of our initiatives with data that is accessible to everyone.


Software Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

My team and I work to ensure that critical components of our existing infrastructure are well-tested, reliable, and scalable. But on top of that, we get the fun job of building out new infrastructure. It’s this forward-looking aspect that is especially exciting to me, because it opens up new paths for Current as we continue to expand.


Software Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

One of the best aspects of Member Experience at Current is that we don’t just serve members when they need help, but also bring their feedback to the broader team. This allows us to hear from actual people using Current and understand their needs, enabling us to build products that improve their lives.


Director of Member Experience

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in our office is very relaxed and friendly. It’s not your typical suit and tie environment. I enjoy the open style that we have because it works well with our collaborative approach to get things done efficiently while inviting casual conversations with my teammates.
