Mobile Applications Developer - Android at Brad’s Deals
Why it's cool: Bootstrapped since the beginning, Brad’s Deals has methodically and intentionally built its 65-strong team into somewhat of a powerhouse. That’s probably why it was named one of the 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.

Software Engineer - Android at SpotHero
Why it's cool: SpotHero is speeding its way to the top of its vertical. In just the last year, they’ve reported an almost 400% growth. They’re already operating in 12 markets across the country and have helped over a million drivers find parking.
What you'd do: You’ll help develop, release, and maintain native Java apps, all the while supporting multiple Android devices and collaborating on software projects.
Who they're looking for: They want someone who is not only well versed in Android development, but someone who also has a strong understanding of good UX and isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty in backend code.
Senior Mobile Designer at Reverb.com
Why it's cool: Let’s talk office culture: Reverb is run by employees who double as musicians, which means an impromptu office jam session after lunch is never out of the question. Oh, and we’ve heard they’ve got an awesome new office—probably with awesome acoustics.
What you'd do: As a mobile designer, you’ll be in charge of designing experiences that are unique to the mobile context and take advantage of the medium. They want you to push the boundaries of how mobile apps can make the Reverb experience better and more engaging.
Who they're looking for: If you've got at least four years of experience as designer and can demonstrate your fluency in mobile app and responsive design, you’re right on track. Reverb also needs you to be self-directed—with the ability to give and receive constructive criticism.
