Android Engineer, App Experience



Remote Friendly

About Us
Reverb is the largest online marketplace dedicated to buying and selling new, used, and vintage musical instruments. Since launching in 2013, Reverb has grown into a vibrant community of buyers and sellers all over the world. By focusing on inspiring content, price transparency, musician-focused eCommerce tools, a music-savvy customer service team, and more, Reverb has created an online destination where the global music community can connect over the perfect piece of music gear.
We believe that music makes the world a better place, which is why our mission is to make the world more musical. Through Reverb Gives, a portion of every sale provides youth music education programs across the world with instruments they need to make music.

About the Team
The App Experience team builds Reverb’s native mobile experience top-to-bottom, from the databases to a user’s phone. We are an inclusive team of designers, backend, and native mobile engineers. We always want to understand the impact and value of our work, which we do through extensive experimentation and user feedback. As an Android engineer, you'll be accountable for pushing our codebase forward, shipping quickly and safely, and helping us tackle the most impactful projects.

We write all our new code in Kotlin, and convert our existing Java code into Kotlin when appropriate. We sweat the details and try to measure everything we do. We want to know the impact of our work on the business. We are a lean team and always try to use the right tool for the job whether that be native code, a web view, or a combination of the two.

Our app is native, with more than two-thirds written in Kotlin. GraphQL is our main networking layer, and we use it extensively. To allow us to ship continuously (every 1 to 2 weeks), we strongly believe in testing and automation, leveraging CircleCI. To build confidence in features, we heavily rely on feature flags, A/B testing, and measuring.

This is a full-time position reporting to the Engineering Manager of our AppEx team. We are open to remote hires within multiple states, with preference for candidates located in Chicago, IL. For candidates who will work remotely visit this link for a list of approved locations.

At Reverb, you'll be more than an engineer; you'll be a product owner who interacts with internal partners, breaks down large problems, and follows up on the performance of your features to know how they impact the business directly.

We ask that candidates express interest in Reverb's mission, prepare to work on a collaborative team, and adopt a growth mentality. We also ask that you have at least 1 to 2 years of Android experience, outside of learning environments, working on apps with networking.
