SENIOR SOFTWARE ENGINEER, ANDROID
At Current, we’re on a mission to enable our members to create better financial outcomes for themselves. Headquartered in NYC, we’re a leading U.S. fintech and one of the fastest growing companies with nearly 4 million members. No matter your title, we’re a team that collaborates on building great products and making an impact together.
Our mobile engineers are responsible for building the full suite of user experiences for our members, leveraging our proprietary backend banking core. The mobile apps are native (Kotlin/Swift) and utilize a mix of GraphQL and gRPC to interface with our backend. Being the primary interface for our members to manage their finances (there isn’t a web app), the mobile experience needs to be highly performant and intuitive to use. This forces our engineers to think through foundational layers of application infrastructure, reusable UI components, and the collection of data that drive these decisions. Join us for an opportunity to work in a fast-moving environment where your work is highly visible and has a direct impact on our members’ financial outcomes!
We are looking for an Android engineer to join our team in New York. This role has a salary range of $160,000 - $215,000. The ideal candidate should have a background in mobile development working with native mobile applications. This person should also be a motivated self-starter who is able to feel at ease working through ambiguity in a fast-paced environment.
