About DuckDuckGo

We're raising the standard of trust online, making privacy simple and accessible for everyone. (We're hiring, too!)

Actively Hiring

We’re looking for a Senior Android Engineer to help shape our all-in-one privacy solution and join our mission to show the world that protecting your privacy online can be simple.

The Opportunity

As a member of our Native Apps team, you’ll be leading projects from proposal through postmortem, and taking ownership of delivering, maintaining and improving major application features. In our remote and collaborative environment, you’ll also work with stakeholders from Product, Design and many other business areas as we work to raise the standard of trust online.

What You Will Bring to DuckDuckGo

  • Ability to lead and collaborate on high-impact and complex projects from proposal through post-mortem.
  • Skills to wrangle vague problems, propose innovative solutions, and execute them with a strong focus on metrics.
  • Significant Android engineering experience (5 years or more) with experience working on at least two large native Android applications.
  • Solid experience programming in Kotlin.
  • Deep understanding of MV concepts, mobile threading, and memory management and how they apply to mobile applications.
  • A fundamental understanding of complex data structures and algorithms.
  • Ability to leverage both quantitative and qualitative data and collaborate with a cross-functional team to develop effective UX solution
  • Creative problem-solvers and risk-takers. You like to take initiative to push projects forward but know when to involve others.
  • Excellent communication skills. You can validate your decisions and communicate them clearly.

How We Will Support You

Our core values — build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction — underpin how we work day-to-day and the support we give our team members. We strive to empower our team members to be self-directed and self-motivated in their work.

  • Remote First, Always: We’ve always been a fully distributed company with team members all over the world. We trust you to get your work done wherever, whenever.
  • Commitment to Personal Growth: Every team member has an annual budget of $1,250 USD to invest in their professional development. Every team member also has a dedicated Career Advisor, who serves as a guide to help you develop your strengths, identify your motivations, and understand your opportunities for growth.
  • Leadership: We have many different types of leaders and possible combinations of leadership roles, so you can grow your career in a way that aligns best with your personal goals. You can seek additional leadership roles by being directly responsible for projects, taking ownership of areas of the company, developing and maintaining internal processes, or pursuing advisory roles.
  • Work/Life Balance: Team members have the freedom and flexibility to organize their own work schedules. We want you to thrive both in and out of the office. We trust you to use good judgment and take the time off that you need to bring your best self to work.

Compensation

Annual compensation: $170,000 USD and stock options.  Compensation is the same within a professional level, regardless of geographic location or functional area, and the compensation for each professional level is transparent across the organization.
