Actively Hiring

GitHub is changing the way the world builds software, and we want you to help build GitHub. We’re looking for a Staff Android Mobile Engineer to join a passionate, collaborative, distributed group of engineers on our team.

The GitHub Mobile team is changing the way developers across the world collaborate on GitHub through native Android and iOS apps. Launched in March 2020, GitHub Mobile is one of our fastest growing products with over 10 million downloads across both platforms and a 4.7-star rating in Google Play.

The team is looking for someone who is passionate about the Android platform and who will help us build a world-class app in design, performance, and accessibility. Come join the team and influence the future of GitHub Mobile! Staff Software Engineers on our team are expected to provide sound technical leadership, drive complex initiatives, and be a mentor for other engineers.

Stack: Our Android app is built with Kotlin and uses Apollo to communicate with GitHub GraphQL APIs. On the UI, we use Compose


Our team is distributed worldwide which means we work asynchronously most of the time. Your typical week would include:

  • Brainstorming on architecture and product decisions with the team. It’s a small team, everyone’s input matters!
  • Setting technical direction and build new features that will simplify our users’ workflows
  • Participating in engineering-wide architecture and design reviews
  • Coordinating cross-team initiatives to ship new products and features across GitHub
  • Collaborating with iOS and backend engineers to create a unified product
  • Jamming on pixels with designers to propose new ideas or provide feedback
  • Testing the app at bug bashes to ensure we’re shipping a high quality product
  • Mentoring teammates to level up others, both at work and in their careers

Minimum/Required Qualifications:

  • 7+ years’ experience as a software engineer
  • 3+ years’ experience as a mobile engineer
  • Experience developing Android apps and distributing them through Google Play
  • Experience with Git and GitHub

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Personal experience with Android devices and even a FAN of it!
  • Experience in Kotlin and Compose
  • Knowledge of design, testing, and debugging best practices
  • Strong written communication skills
  • Experience and proven track record of successfully applying critical thinking skills to system design and software engineering concepts in previous projects to meet project goals and requirements

Minimum salary of $118,000 to maximum $313,300.
