Senior Android Engineer

Schoology is one of the fastest growing education technology companies, with more than 17 million users across the world.  We are giving educators all the tools they need to more easily personalize education and improve student outcomes, but in a way that works easily with their current systems and teaching approach. We’ve evolved the traditional learning management system into an education cloud: a platform that connects the people, content, and systems that fuel education.

Working at Schoology offers you a chance to help solve the most important challenges in education in an environment that’s fun, collaborative and innovative. We are looking for smart, creative individuals who are passionate about education and aren't afraid to show it.  

Why we need you:

  • You'll contribute heavily to the development of our Android application.
  • You’ll work closely with our mobile development team to ensure we’re leveraging best of breed technologies to delight our 15 million+ users.

  • Strong understanding of core CS principles, including OOA/D.
  • Strong understanding of concurrency in mobile apps.
  • Experience working with REST APIs.
  • Strong fundamental understanding of web application technology.
  • Ability and desire to learn new applications/processes/environment.

What we'd really like:
