Mobile Developer (Kotlin)

Vancouver, BC • December 22, 2020

Steamclock is looking for a bright, enthusiastic person here in Vancouver with experience shipping apps on Android. If you have a track record of shipping beautiful, high-quality products, we’d love to chat!

Steamclock is a profitable and growing studio in Gastown that makes very nice mobile software. Our focus is shipping great stuff, and building the company we want to work at. We make products for ourselves – such as a neat Mac utility for tracking issues and pull requests – and apps for interesting companies like Arc’teryx, WealthBar, and Mozilla.

In this role we’re looking for somebody who’s used to native Android development, but is also interested in wearing other hats like web or iOS development over time. We value people over process, and your skills and perspective will help us bring our product work to the next level.
