Come party with a million people a day in celebrating important events in their lives! Evite, the world’s leading digital platform, is looking for passionate and creative Sr. Android Engineer to join our team in Los Angeles. We are looking for people who will contribute to our mission of bringing people together to celebrate their most important life moments.

You will develop world-class Android applications as an integral part of the highly visible Evite brand. You will also push the envelope in using progressive mobile ideas and the latest Android platform features and build elegant and deceptively simple user experiences. Our ideal candidate should have strong communication that allows them to translate complex findings to all stakeholders. This individual should be driven by an inquisitive curiosity to learn and can pick up new knowledge and skills independently. Evite is looking for motivated individuals to help bring our “What If” philosophy to life.

    CORE CAPABILITIES

    • Strong understanding of Java or Kotlin, Android SDK, Android Design Interface guidelines, and material design.
    • Experience with dependency injection, RxJava and common design patterns.  
    • A sound understanding of HTTP and RESTful APIs, and best practices for mobile app integration.
    • Experience with unit tests, multithreading, memory management and caching mechanisms specific to mobile devices. 

    The 3C’s: (Candidate must have all three C’s)

    • Communication - You’re an eloquent speaker who can explain anything to everyone. You are also a clear and concise writer.
    • Critical thinking - You love logic and data. Thinking strategically is your forte. You enjoy diagnosing complex problems and formulating plans of attack to resolve them. You enjoy an environment where everyone is encouraged to add value at the most strategic level.
    • Cultural fit - You have a craving to fit in a fast-paced, high-integrity, low hand-holding environment (but you will get a hug if you need it). EQ as important as IQ. Bullies need not apply. You want to help bring our “What If” philosophy to life.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    • Work alongside our Product team to guide new ideas, create prototypes, and build features on the product roadmap
    • Participate in our rapid-delivery Scrum process including sprint planning, daily standups, demos and retrospectives
