Android Developer

Montreal, Canada

See All Positions

We don’t believe in chat bubble binaries. But if the grass on one side was greener… we know which side we’d pick. We’re looking for a developer handy in C++ and Kotlin to improve Transit on Android. We’ve just started the migration from RxJava to Kotlin Flows, and we’re actively working on our first big Compose screen.

While our iOS devs are busy on Notch Island dancing under a Lightning cable (or however else they spend their time) you’ll be optimizing our Android performance, developing better logic, and improving the C++ library shared by our iOS and Android apps. We work natively on Transit’s UI to keep it true to each platform, but there are lots of areas where we can reduce code duplication, making Transit as small and nimble as it can possibly be.

Who are you? You know the ins-and-outs of the Android SDK like a Kotlin-savvy surgeon. The scariest episode of Fear Factor you’ve ever watched didn’t involve eating bugs — but refactoring bug-prone architecture. When your therapist asks what would make you happy, you say “a better Google Maps SDK” three times out loud.

👨‍💻 A note on diversity

Public transit is used by overwhelmingly more women and people of colour than other modes of transportation. We try to make sure the diversity of our users is reflected in the team that serves them. Because when we include people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and identities — we end up building a better app for everyone who uses Transit.

We encourage candidates of all ages, genders, origins and orientations to apply. If you’d like to specify which pronouns you use, feel free to include that in your application email.

And if your lived experience has given you a unique perspective on all things transportation, mobility, accessibility, urbanism? Let us know, and we’ll make sure your application gets the attention it merits.

📬 How to apply

Shoot us an email at [email protected] with a CV, quick summary of who you are and why you’re interested in working at Transit, a link to your GitHub, and some projects you’re proud to have worked on. We look forward to meeting you!

PS: When you apply, let us know how you heard about the position! Whispers, grapevines, middle-of-the-night Google searches? We’re dying to know.
