Senior Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile Developer

Touchlab is looking for a Senior Kotlin Mobile Multiplatform (KMM) Developer. Candidates should be experienced mobile developers with a professional history of creating native mobile applications. The ideal candidate would have some professional or open source KMM experience, as well as familiarity with iOS developer tools, platform, and technologies, but as KMM technologies are still very new, candidates who demonstrate a strong interest in Kotlin Multiplatform and the ability to pick it up quickly will be considered. The work is fairly collaborative therefore we are currently only considering candidates in timezones between -3 and -7 GMT.

We are the global experts in Kotlin Multiplatform tech. As KM adoption continues to grow we are building an expert team to help catalyze adoption and the Kotlin ecosystem.

In your role, you will be working with clients to implement mobile projects, using a blend of Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile and platform-native technologies. You will have opportunities to contribute to both our open source and internal products, as well as speaking and publishing opportunities. We have been involved in the Android and native mobile communities for years and will be increasing that involvement going forward.

What you will be doing

  • Advise clients on KM best practices and architecture
  • Build quality applications based on KM technology
  • Experiment, learn, and coach others in Multiplatform strategies
  • Be a core contributor to open source and internal products
  • Perform peer code reviews and help us all get better
  • Improve our process in weekly retrospectives

 

Must-Have

    • 4+ years of professional Android development experience, or demonstrable equivalent skills
    • Strong familiarity with Kotlin on the JVM and Android application development
    • Understanding of mobile best-practices and visibility into the KMM and native mobile library ecosystem (and how best to apply these technologies)
    • Familiarity with Git, GitHub, and good version control practices
    • Strong interest in Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile development
    • Ability to communicate mobile development concepts to stakeholders
    • Comfortable working with Agile teams

    • Located in timezones between -3 and -7 GMT

Nice-to-Have

  • Familiarity with XCode and iOS application development
  • Experience with KMM, either in a production application environment or as a library developer
  • Experience in a client-facing role
  • Involvement in the open source ecosystem

What We Offer

In addition to competitive fair salaries, Touchlab provides a comprehensive benefits package. Our team receives company-sponsored health, dental, vision, life & disability insurance, and the option to participate in our 401k program. We have a generous vacation policy, plus company holidays and a floating holiday (so you choose what’s important to you). We also offer the team budget for learning and development.

Prior to the pandemic, we had remote and flexible work-from-home policies. We’re all remote now, and the remote option will remain for the team after the pandemic. Everyone receives a remote work gear kit, including a company supplied Apple machine.  We get together for team events (virtual right now, obviously), regular lunches, and team socializing. It’s a big plus if your dog can make an appearance on Zoom (we don’t discriminate against cats either).

Who We Are

We are a growing team of people with a breadth of backgrounds in different industries. Our team is great at what they do. That doesn’t mean everyone shows up with a crazy Stack Overflow score, but it does mean we’re hungry to learn and support each other in growing in our knowledge and skills. We work collaboratively and believe we can help shape the future of mobile through Kotlin Multiplatform.

For the last decade, Touchlab has been at the forefront of mobile product development. Today that means helping our clients build products in a world where mobile platforms have matured. When engineering leaders need to accelerate feature development, maximize engineering efficiency, and future-proof their teams and products, they partner with us. We train and advise on mobile best practices, develop apps for all platforms, and as the recognized global experts in Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile we have been both a JetBrains and Google certified agency.

Because both startups and the largest public companies seek us out to help them build their mobile products, our team members get the opportunity to work on a variety of interesting projects as well as contribute to our open-source endeavors.

In just the last year we’ve solved problems with companies in fintech, fitness, farming, and even other industries that don’t start with F. In that same year, we’ve contributed code to Kotlin/Native itself, built the most successful open-source starter kit for KMM, and released multiple KMM libraries that are being used by developers around the world.

Through our partnership with JetBrains and our community efforts, we are directly influencing the growth and adoption of KMM. Check out our blog and JetBrains’ KMM portal to learn more.

We believe that embracing our unique diversity leads to success, and we’re working hard to build a diverse, equitable and inclusive team. Touchlab is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace for people of every gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age, veteran status, parental status, and any other identities. We strive for all to feel welcome and comfortable here.
