HotelTonight makes it remarkably easy to book great hotels at amazing last-minute rates on your mobile device, for tonight, tomorrow and next week. Our mission is to make people feel more alive by delivering the unexpected and we’re looking for an Android Engineer to help do just that.

You love questioning the standard way of doing things. Every day, the engineering team faces the challenges of scaling to support our increased booking volume, building a unified global platform and adapting to the newest mobile technologies, all while keeping our apps fast and our UX clean and simple. You’ll take enormous pride in the product experiences the team delivers to our millions of Android users worldwide.

WITHIN 1 MONTH, YOU WILL:

WHY THIS OPPORTUNITY IS COOL:

  • We’re an Editors' Choice app in the Play Store and an Android Excellence App!

  • We're mobile first. And we've been mobile first since we first appeared in the app store in 2011

WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THIS ROLE:

  • You’ve worked on a consumer-facing Android app before (at least 2 years of experience)
  • A passion for the Android platform - you consider it the best, use it yourself, and want to make beautiful apps for it. You have published apps in Google Play with stellar reviews.
  • Excited by and familiar with tools and methodologies for building great software including Git, Java, Gradle, Fragments, and open source libraries. Knowledgeable about Material Design.
  • Strong understanding of software architecture and design best practices.
  • Appreciation for Agile development, fast sprints, continuous integration, and beautiful efficient code.
  • Smart yet humble. Independent and product-focused. Bachelor's in Computer Science or a related technical field required

WHAT YOU’LL GET FROM US:

  • An official Best Place to Work (we're in the top 10!)
  • A highly collaborative and supportive team environment that values asking the right questions, building solutions, and respecting everyone we work withWe aren’t afraid to take risks, and we encourage you let go of the fear of failure and give that crazy but brilliant idea a shot
  • Great SF office location at 5th and Market and a beautiful workspace
  • Excellent health, dental, vision and 401k plans - and stock options, too
  • Fun stuff — quarterly travel stipend, unlimited vacation, catered meals, subsidized cell phone plans and fitness memberships, access to our very own hotel-inspired full bar, and the opportunity to spin the HT Roulette wheel to win a spontaneous weekend getaway!
