Android Engineer

San Francisco, CA
R&D – Engineering
Full-time
About the Role:

PlanGrid is on a mission to build the future faster by creating beautiful software for the trillion dollar construction industry. Construction is one of the oldest industries on the planet, and right now it is stuck in the past. We’re changing that by building tools that automate the mundane tasks around collaboration, planning and version control (think version control for blueprints). Our users are building some of the most amazing construction projects in the world, and our platform is their central information point.

We are open to remote engineers!

About our Tech Stack:

We are currently re-engineering our Android app to make the code cleaner, faster, more reusable, and more testable. As part of that we will be targeting Android API level 19. We use SQLLite for our database layer as well as several of Square’s libraries such as OkHttp, Retrofit for easier networking. For high speed rendering we use OpenGL and will be considering using native code (C++ via NDK) if and where it makes sense.

You will also be expected to work with other teams, not just Android, and their stack is extremely diverse so you will get exposure to lots of technologies including, but not limited to, iOS, Python, PostgreSQL, Mongo, and .NET. 

As an Android Engineer, you will tackle difficult and interesting challenges for Android. Things like:

    • Building near real-time collaboration and markup for construction drawings
    • Building slick and responsive UI that can handle millions of user generated data points (like photos and annotations)
    • Replacing Excel workflows with simple, powerful tools that work great on mobile Android devices (both phones and tablets)

    • Have at least 3 years of Android or client side Java experience
    • Have the passion and dedication to write highly performant and reliable code
    • Love solving tricky problems
    • Have a technical undergraduate degree or higher (CS, Math, Engineering, etc.)
    • Team player – you love to teach others about cool new tricks you learned and absorb tips and tricks from developers; love solving problems as a team across platforms

Perks:

    • Located in San Francisco’s Mission District just one block from BART, among local shops, bars, and restaurants
    • Medical, dental, and vision coverage for full-time employees and dependents
    • 401k + Company matching
