Job Description

About Airlift:

Airlift is building the world’s first decentralized mass transit network that enables local transporters to deploy mass transit systems for local populations. We view mass transit as a prerequisite for economic development -- our team is mission-driven and is focused on scaling our early value system that has driven our success to date.

In the first 12-18 months, Airlift has secured $22M+ USD in venture financing and has scaled the business to multiple tens of thousands of daily rides. We are backed by First Round Capital, a premier venture capital firm based in San Francisco (known for its seed stage investment in Uber, Square and other billion-dollar enterprises).


About the Role:

Airlift Android apps are currently used by over a million users. There are exceptionally high expectations on speed of development, quality of execution, depth and scalability of design and overall application robustness. These applications need to be built on continuously improving architectures. Successful candidates will have a proven history of building successful apps using Java/Kotlin, strong ability to introduce and implement best practices in mobile teams, and the ability to mentor and inspire other engineers to grow.


The Software Engineer (Android) will be expected to:


  • Engage in proactive, hands-on development of Android systems and promotion of best practices,
  • Own the development and deadlines of getting features to production,
  • Think in terms of reusable processes, library and framework creations,
  • Build processes that help produce reliable and consistent outcomes,
  • Engage in proactive long-term effort for review of code and designs to identify and resolve complex, meaningful problems for Airlift’s Android application in line with Airlift’s mission and strategy.



Successful candidates in this role will lead with a number of core competencies, including:


  • In-depth knowledge in Android development, with a deep understanding of Android core frameworks and design patterns,
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to document and explain complex concepts to technology and business teams,
  • 2+ years of experience in developing, shipping and maintaining native Android apps,
  • BS in Computer Science or a related technical discipline.


What We Offer:

  • The opportunity to work alongside an exceptionally talented team,
  • An exciting and fast-paced business directly impacting Pakistan's environmental and economic landscape, 
  • A high-impact role with meaningful work in an area that is of crucial significance for the business,
  • High levels of autonomy in strategy and decision-making,
  • Highly competitive remuneration,
  • Benefits including fuel, internet and phone allowances as well as health coverage,
  • Flat hierarchies, with short and open channels of communication,
  • A meritocratic and rewarding work culture built around core values of teamwork, growth, execution and appreciation.

Airlift is an Equal Opportunity Employer and strictly prohibits discrimination of any kind. We believe that great ideas can come from anywhere. We are committed to building the best team possible and all employment decisions are based on business needs, job requirements and individual potential and qualifications, without regard to race, color, age, religion, socioeconomic status, orientation, gender identity, national origin or disability.
