Minneapolis, MN
Engineering
Full-time
At Livefront, we help companies design and build world-class digital products that command attention and inspire joy. We’ve helped household names like Target, Samsung, General Mills, and Optum create experiences that have reached millions of people, and startups like HomeSpotter and Acclaim build entirely new businesses that challenge their industries’ status quo.

We’re looking for an outstanding Android Developer to join our team. This is a senior-level position located at our headquarters in Minneapolis.

Who you are
You’re a curious, proactive mobile developer with a fluent command of the latest Java and/or Kotlin APIs. You have a knack for writing readable, maintainable code and know how to balance getting it done with getting it right. You have a track record of leading technically ambitious projects to timely completion and don’t shy away from big engineering challenges. You have an eye for detail and enjoy collaborating with UI designers to implement intricate interfaces faithfully. You’re a terrific communicator who can help steer cross-functional teams from idea to implementation. You have a demonstrated ability to approach multifaceted problems holistically and create elegant, simple solutions. Above all, you’re a self-starter who thrives in autonomy and can work effectively with little oversight.
