Mojo is a mobile app for creating incredible animated social content. Users can choose from hundreds of animated templates, customize them to their needs and share them on all social platforms.

Mojo was launched in 2018 and is now the #1 app for creating animated content for social media.
The app reached over 40M installs with an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 and hundreds of thousands of paying subscribers.

At Mojo, we believe that creating great visual content should not require technical skills.

That’s why we want to put a design agency in every pocket.

With a designer in hand, we make it easier for people to become creators, shop owners, marketers, or artists - and earn a living from it.

Your role is pivotal in blending technical expertise with strategic leadership to keep Mojo at the forefront of digital content creation.

As an Android Tech Lead, you will:
