Android Engineer at ParkWhiz
ParkWhiz’s mission is to bring smiles to drivers around the world by making parking more convenient, efficient, and delightful.
We’re looking for Android developer that is excited about working on an app they’ll actually use. We are focused on creating the best possible experience for customers, one that will make them want to come back again and again.

We prioritize ability to learn and cultural fit over raw Android skills and experience.
Some of the skills we're looking for:
  • Strong Computer Science background, preferably with a degree
  • Solid Object-Oriented background
  • Comfortable and fluent in either Java, Kotlin, C++ or a similar language
  • Willing to spend time getting to know Android animations or have good experience with them, as well as a keen eye of how to use them to make the application feel alive
  • Highly collaborative in the planning and grooming stages
  • Have networking experience, preferably using JSON as well as a traditional Android networking library such as Volley, Retrofit or Ion
  • Shipping clean, testable code that any developer on any team could quickly get up to speed
Your typical day:
  • Interact with the product team on a daily basis to determine priorities as well as set expectations
  • Monitor live issues through Fabric and other tools and address bugs as they are found and reported through various channels
  • Take on projects for new sections of the application that we are looking to expand or include
  • Discuss architecture and come to an agreement with the Android team before implementation
  • Do code reviews so that everyone on the team can see the work being done and as well participate in extra steps to catch any potential mistakes
  • Occasionally do small R&D projects to determine if something new and exciting is something we want to incorporate

Our Engineering Culture: We are a very tight knit group that is inclusive, fun and hard working. We love shipping clean, testable code. Our top priority is producing a product that people love using. We have a firm, non-negotiable no jerk policy. We accept you for who you are and consider everyone on an equal opportunity basis without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
