HotelTonight Starts and Ends with Great Products
At HotelTonight, we take enormous pride in the product experiences we deliver to both customers and hotel partners. We build amazing products by questioning the standard way of doing things. We are looking for an outstanding Android Developer who shares our passion for beautiful, practical products that earn raves from our peers and our customers.
You may have seen our apps (or even booked a hotel through them!), but you should know that we're far more than an app developer. Because we've built the world’s first mobile-only online travel agency, there's a lot of code behind the scenes to process transactions, interface with hotels and determine which ones go on sale each day.
Every day, the 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. To accomplish this, we utilize whatever technology is best to solve a particular problem, not necessarily the one we're currently using.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
Develop Android applications for Android phones, tablets and other devices that run the Android OS (or derivatives).
Push the envelope with what is possible with Android, keeping the product true to our core product values of Simplicity, Beauty & Fscking Usefulness, but extending it where we can take advantage of Android-specific functionality.
Work with the rest of the team to extend our APIs and other systems to support your ideas.
WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN YOU
Excellent knowledge of Android SDK, Java and related technologies.
A passion for the Android platform - you consider it the best, use it yourself, know it well, and want to make perfect apps for it. You have published apps in Google Play and they have stellar reviews.
Excited by and familiar with the tools and methodologies we use for building great software, including Git, Java, a multitude of open source libraries, and tools and techniques for a great development environment.
Appreciation for Agile development, continuous integration and beautiful / efficient code
Smart yet humble. Take pride in what you build, question the status quo so we can improve, defend your ideas and respect others’ opinions. Everyone here is focused on finding the best solutions to the problems we face.
Independent and product-focused. We expect our developers to also define big portions of the products they build. If you want to be handed a complete product spec on your first day, you'd probably be happier working elsewhere.
WHAT YOU'LL GET FROM US
True startup experience — no bureaucracy and a ton of tough decisions that have a real impact on the business
A chance to become an expert in mobile travel while it’s a nascent, growing industry
Camaraderie of an amazing team that is working tirelessly to build the next great travel company
Great SF office location at 5th and Market (if you don’t live in SF but have the legal right to work for any employer in the US, we’ll move you here)
Excellent health, dental, vision and 401K plans. Generous compensation and stock options too!
Sweet perks — Annual travel stipend, your choice of equipment and a giant monitor, catered lunches and breakfast a few times a week, unlimited coffee and snacks, a partially subsidized gym membership at Sports Club/LA, access to our very own hotel-inspired full bar, and a gong that you’ll get to bang when you ship something amazing.
