Quartz seeks an Android developer to help build the next era of mobile news apps.
We are a small team with lots of room to experiment, shape our existing products, and create new ones. That’s how we developed our first major iOS/Android app, which rethought how people could get their news on phones. It was selected by Apple as an editors’ pick, and widely praised elsewhere.
This position would work on that app and help develop new experiences specific to Android. You would be a part of the broader Quartz engineering team, which is based in New York. Our strong preference is that you are in New York, too, but we’ll consider applications from elsewhere.
The ideal candidate will have the following skills:
BA/BS degree in Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent practical experience
Relevant work experience
Experience with Android technologies (Java, Android SDK, etc.)
One or more Android apps published in the Play Store
Dedicated with strong attention to detail
Passion for the work you do
Published app with over 100k downloads/MAU
Experience with chat bots
Quartz (qz.com) is a business news organization that launched in 2012 as part of Atlantic Media Company with a mission to be a guide to the new global economy. In four years, we’ve grown to nearly 200 people around the world.
Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.
1. Force of Intellect – Atlantic Media seeks a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested, often, in exceptional academic performance and, later, success in a professional environment.
2. Spirit of Generosity – Equally, Atlantic Media seeks what we term a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.
Atlantic Media is an equal opportunity employer of minorities, women, veterans and those with disabilities.
