Senior Android Engineer for Blockchain Projects

Vancouver, BC
We're looking for a top-tier Android Engineer to bring our applications and ideas for the Android platform to fruition. Our ideal candidate is a builder on both platforms, but if you’re an Android specialist looking to become multidisciplinary, we can help you broaden your skill set too. Alongside a world-class team in our Vancouver office, you’ll help shape the way a revolutionary new technology is introduced to and adopted by new audiences.

Every one of us shares a common vision: to create the future we want to live in. We need the right people to help us realize that vision.

A little about us:

Dapper Labs is the company behind CryptoKitties. Formed in February 2018, Dapper Labs was spun out of Axiom Zen to spread the benefits of decentralization through the power of play, fairness, and true ownership. Notable investors in Dapper Labs include Andreessen Horowitz, Union Square Ventures, Venrock, Google Ventures, Samsung, and the founders of Dreamworks, Reddit, Coinbase, Zynga, and AngelList, among others. CryptoKitties is the world’s most popular blockchain application outside of cryptocurrency exchanges.

Dapper team members are humble and curious entrepreneurs, builders, and tinkerers who share a passion to demystify blockchain technology and tap its potential to create change in the world. Our people are our greatest strength: our diverse crew flourishes in a distributed hierarchy where personal autonomy and professional growth are encouraged. We value our culture above else: regardless of where you came from, what you studied, or who you used to work for, your role here will necessitate both a high level of creativity and strategic thinking on complex issues. Everyone here is a founder, and no one fits in a box. We’re all driven by an insatiable thirst for learning and development, and that’s what brings us together.
What we’ll accomplish together:
  • As a key stakeholder for mobile initiatives moving forward, you’ll navigate the new frontier of building mobile applications on the blockchain and shepherd our mobile projects from ideation to fruition.
  • You’ll explore new technologies and identify where our technical stack can be improved – as the ecosystem evolves, we’re always open to adopting new tools, libraries, and best practices.
A little about you:
  • You have experience building native Android apps from the ground up, and have a deep understanding of platform capabilities and quirks.
  • You’re fluent in Kotlin.
  • You’re up to speed on the newest developments and best practices in the mobile ecosystem, and keen to share what you know.
  • You’re passionate about writing clean, maintainable, and robust code.
  • You’re familiar with automated testing of mobile apps, and how to get the most value out of tests.
  • We believe in processes and the power of planning, but you’ll often have to roll with the punches and prioritize the most impactful tasks on the fly.
Bonus points if you have the following:
  • Experience with rapid prototyping.
  • Cross-platform mobile experience (iOS, React Native, Unity3D, etc.).
  • An eye for design and a solid understanding of user experience principles.
