Medal.tv

Android Engineer (Remote)

Medal.tv is one of the fastest-growing consumer applications in gaming! Our users capture and share millions of videos every week, and connect with one another around their shared gaming experiences.

We are an international fully remote team, where everyone works autonomously with the expectations that you can be available for team syncs in the same core hours (9:00 am and 12:00 pm PST). The exact times and days vary per team.

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

You'll be joining our small, tight-knit mobile apps team to help define the future of our Android app. Mobile is an important part of Medal's ecosystem, which means we are able to work with a lot of autonomy. It also means our team is often the one to experiment and try new things, so there's never a shortage of new features or projects to take on.

We are looking for someone who is able to work independently and take ownership of the features they work on. Strong communication skills are also very important, as we collaborate daily both within the team as well across teams via Slack, Clubhouse, meetings, and PR reviews.

We are building a world-class Android engineering team with diversified skills and backgrounds, and are excited to find someone who can help us continue to grow.

As a team, we favor progress, learning, and speed, over perfection.
