Steamclock is looking for a bright, enthusiastic developer here in Vancouver with experience shipping native Android apps. If you have a track record of shipping high quality apps, and like the idea of working in Kotlin, we’d love to meet you.

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