Software Engineer II / Senior - Android (remote friendly)

With over a million customers trusting PayJoy, it’s increasingly important that our apps and services operate with integrity and high availability while keeping our customers' data confidential.

Your Role
You will join the team building our core technology: the PayJoy Lock App for Android. This team’s mission is to expand the compatibility of our core Lock App to more Android OEMs. In addition to developing our Android Lock App, you’ll also get to work with our OEM partners and ensure our customers have a great experience.

Our business depends on our app becoming compatible with more of the market’s most desirable devices. When your team succeeds, the impact to PayJoy’s business will be clear to see. You’ll partner directly with others throughout PayJoy to understand our market, our customers, and our external partners.

As an experienced engineer, you’ve led the development of many features and components through many product cycles. You are comfortable defining projects and leading them through design, development, testing, release, and field monitoring. You are a skilled collaborator, knowing how to be an effective code reviewer as well as a partner with internal peers in product management, backend services, and business development.

You also probably have experience with AOSP. This position focuses on the Lock App platform and internals, which interface with Android OS features and partner OEM features like Mobile Device Management (MDM). You’ll have peers that focus on the app UI. This is a key difference from most Android app engineering positions.
