Vacancy

At Doist, our mission is to inspire the workplace of the future by creating simple yet powerful productivity tools that promote a more fulfilling way to work and live.

We're a multidisciplinary, fully remote team of 90+ people who are passionate about creating products, like Todoist and Twist, that improve people’s lives. We thrive on innovating new solutions to old productivity challenges and we seek to rethink how productivity tools are made.

Our Core Values

They are few, but they are mighty. From creating processes to decision-making and recruiting, we build our five core values into nearly every single thing we do.

  • Independence. Others can trust that you’ll deliver on time and your teammates don’t need to worry about you keeping your word.

  • Mastery. You love what you do and care deeply about the quality of your work, down to the smallest details. You’re continuously learning and pushing yourself to the limits of your ability. You're never satisfied with the status quo.

  • Communication. Your communication is clear, concise, and engaging whether you're explaining a complex idea or providing feedback to a teammate.

  • Ambition & Balance. You aspire to put a dent in the universe. To do this, you set high standards for yourself and those around you. The time you spend on work isn’t measured by quantity, but by quality.

  • Impact. You're able to take a bird's eye view to pinpoint and then solve issues that have a high impact on our customers, our team, and our company. You're committed to the health and success of both your teammates and Doist as a company.

Experience

As a Senior Android Engineer, you will join our six-person Android team to help build the Android clients for Todoist and Twist. In addition to improving the apps and implementing new features, you'll be working closely with designers, developers from other teams and also participate in product decisions. We strive to make the best possible native Android apps that adhere to Material design, while also achieving a consistent experience across platforms. Our apps are fast, calm and efficient. Our products are always evolving and improving, but we believe that good foundations are better than quick fixes. Let’s work together to make the best productivity and communication apps on Android!

What you can expect to do on a regular basis:

  • Create features. From the proposal, through specification and implementation, to maintenance. Often these features are implemented as documented API endpoints. You're encouraged and expected to propose things that you think can be helpful for the product.

  • Provide feedback. When planning a feature, it's the job of senior developers of each team to provide feedback on expected challenges and unknowns as early as possible.

  • Improve the code. With time, our code and data structures accumulated technical debt which we systematically pay off. Often we do it while we make features as well as dedicating exclusive time to housekeeping.

  • Be a present team member. We do code reviews, refactor code, learn new things and share our knowledge. Occasionally you will be appointed as the mentor of newcomers.

  • Lead projects. Project leaders bear the ultimate responsibility for the success of their projects. In practical terms, they shepherd the overall planning and work and orchestrate its execution until the end of the cycle. They balance this activity with hands-on work.

  • Be a “Hero”. A “Hero” is a developer whose main priority is working closely with support at triaging and fixing bug reports. They also help speed up reviewing processes and support other teams in their projects.

Not sure the role is a good fit for you? That's okay! We'd still be happy to consider you. Here's what the process will look like:

  • Submit your complete application. This includes a resume (or manually entered experience) and thoughtful responses to all the application questions. No cover letter needed!

  • Application screening. We read every application to understand your motivation, skills, and experience. Once the application window has closed, we'll review your submission and follow up with you regarding the status of your application. Every application will receive a response.

  • Value-alignment interview with Rastislav V. (Head of Android).

  • We'll ask you to complete a take-home test task.

  • Test project & technical interview with Pedro S (Android Engineer).

  • Culture contribution and values interview with Alex R. (Head of Infrastructure).
