Senior iOS or Android Developer - Messaging Specialist

Anonyome Labs was created to give people control and freedom over their personal and private information. We believe that people should be able to determine how, what, and with whom they share their personal details. We are building the tools that shift the balance of power from the public and private data brokers, advertisers, and organizations demanding your personal information, back to you , the user.

We are hiring for a senior or architect-level software engineer with proven expertise in building and scaling messaging applications, ideally in the consumer app space. As our global user base grows, the complexity of deploying and operating an end-to-end encrypted messaging product dramatically increases. You'll be joining us in our Salt Lake City, Utah office, working with a talented group of software professionals on a sophisticated privacy-based communications app (telephony, messaging, email, browser, payments). Who we're looking for:

  • Architect-level iOS or Android engineer with expertise in building and scaling real-time messaging apps.
  • Individual contributor but with a large emphasis on being able to architect and build highly-performant/highly-scalable messaging applications.
  • Direct experience scaling a product to tens of millions of users with hundreds of thousands of requests per minute.
  • Direct experience working with private messaging, group messaging, SMS/MMS and/or Application Push technologies on a product that had tens or hundreds of millions of devices.
  • Track record for bringing innovation and technical leadership to an organization.
  • Excellent communication skills, including ability to write concise technical docs and present complex ideas
