At Pocket, we love what we do, but more importantly we are building something that millions of people love, too. Pocket has become crucial to how over 100M people discover and consume content worthy of their time and attention.
We’re looking for a passionate and skilled Android engineer to bring to life key aspects of our Android app.
If you are passionate about using technology to improve people’s lives, we believe Pocket has challenges that will excite you. We’re a small team within a well-established organization (Pocket was acquired by Mozilla in 2017), and that means lots of opportunity to build, learn and grow in a variety of areas, collaborate closely with fellow team members from many different fields, and to own things from start to finish that have tremendous impact on large numbers of people.
Our Android app has been recognized time and again as a leader on the platform. Our users agree: Pocket for Android is one of the few mobile apps that can claim a decade of near-perfect user ratings. We take advantage of new Android features as they are announced.
Come work with us and make a huge impact.

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications we still encourage you to apply!
What’s the team like?
Pocket is a distributed team headquartered in San Francisco. We were remote-friendly before it was cool: the Pocket team works from home, co-working spaces, and Mozilla offices. The mobile engineering team has members across time zones in the USA and Europe. Video conferencing, Slack, JIRA, and shared documents keep everyone in the loop. We work hard to make sure no one feels isolated, and lean heavily on communication and collaboration as hallmarks of our success.
As a subsidiary of Mozilla, we have the nimbleness of a small team with the resources of a large company. Each teammate is empowered to make a big impact, but our working hours are flexible. We know you have a life outside the office, and we value that and the perspective it brings—you’re human, we’re human, and everyone at Pocket is treated with utmost respect.
Mozilla exists to build the Internet as a public resource accessible to all because we believe that open and free is better than closed and controlled. When you work at Mozilla, you give yourself a chance to make a difference in the lives of Web users everywhere. And you give us a chance to make a difference in your life every single day. Join us to work on the Web as the platform and help create more opportunity and innovation for everyone online.
Commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging
