We are relentless and move quickly to release new features and content to our applications. Good ideas are heard and implemented, and hard work rewarded. Being a part of our team means having the ability to drive impact and own the innovation that connects our tens of millions of unique monthly users to the memorable experiences that only live events create.
As an Android Engineer you will architect, develop, and maintain the award winning Vivid Seats Android App. You'll research and incorporate modern best architectural standards, refactor our code base, and scale the consumer facing Vivid Seats app that has over 1 million downloads.
Our team writes new features and tests in Kotlin, utilizes Redux methodologies for uniform flow, and leverages Room as a Sqlite DB wrapper. Our mobile engineers collaborate with our Product, Quality and Design Teams to select technology, optimize our current experience, and implement product differentiators to improve the experience for our users. We've built lean and empowered teams to look critically at our apps, innovate, and drive new solutions forward. Our delivery teams work together- standardizing the way we write code across platforms and providing ownership that extends beyond individual teams.
This is an opportunity to have a huge impact on the evolution of the Vivid Seats Android App. Our development teams are committed to good design patterns, testable code, innovation, and always putting our customers first. Excited? Us too!
