As an engineer at TenthBit, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a talented engineering and design team, who care about the quality and craft of their work. With over 1 million messages being sent between couples every day, and 160 million messages sent in total, we have many interesting problems to solve. Here’s just a few of the engineering problems we’ve tackled:

  • Built a custom messaging infrastructure that combines websockets with a REST-like API to deliver messages between couples at top speed, including paranoid reconnect logic to keep them connected at all times. We don't use XMPP, instead evolving a speed centered in-house protocol that you will be able to contribute to.
  • Built an extremely optimized ListView that handles lots of media items while creating a smooth and consistent user experience on over 1000 devices.
  • Making sure that our app works across devices which greatly vary in memory, screen size and resolution.
  • If these are the types of problems you'd like to take on, drop us a line!
