Quick Take: Axios is a new digital media company that tells you what matters and why to make you smarter, faster. We're hiring a Senior Android Engineer.
Why it Matters: We need a Senior Android Engineer who will lead architecture and development work for our native reading and contributing tools for mobile devices. This is a high-visibility opportunity that will allow you to play a major role in shaping development culture and product architecture for a start-up that is unapologetically fixing media.
Go Deeper: You recognize that apps should look and function in a way that feels native to the platform. You are the kind of Droid enthusiast who can help check iOS design bias and call out if something feels wrong or foreign.

You have worked on everything from the deep underpinnings of persistence architecture to building custom controls, all the way up to the fine polish of implementing engaging animations. We’re looking for the following skillset:
