  • Deep-diving into the Android OS and SDK to create solutions to improve and streamline our data collection pipeline
  • Contributing to architectural design discussions and the technical roadmap by always asking yourself: how can we do this better, faster and more efficient?

What do we offer?

  • Lots of responsibility + room for you to experiment and grow with the company.
  • An international team of super-talented people from different cultural backgrounds (Beijing, San Francisco, Utrecht and more) and therefore lots of international travel opportunities.
  • Paid leave, so long as you promise to come back!
