Simprints builds biometric technology for the international development space. Our product — a fingerprint scanner paired with an Android application — is currently being used by a few hundred front-line workers for projects taking place in Africa and Asia. We are looking for an Android rock star to join our tech team. You will be primarily responsible for maintaining our codebase and fixing bugs as they arise. You will also get some opportunities to contribute to the development of Simprints’ applications and integrate them with our back-end services. As our product grows, we plan to diversify our technology to move beyond Android, giving you the opportunity to gain experience developing on other mobile (e.g. iOS, Windows, Blackberry). If becoming a polyglot programmer who dabbles in multiple languages sounds interesting, we would like to meet you.


  • Write robust, high quality and fully testable code which runs reliably in challenging settings
  • Work on cross-functional projects by collaborating closely with hardware, firmware, and back-end engineers


  • BS/MS/PhD in Computer Engineering

  • Experience with Firebase services (Realtime Database, Crashlytics, Firestore, Firebase Test Lab)
  • Experience with TensorFlow and Firebase MLKit 
  • Track record of past experience developing with iOS
