Job Description


We're making a hardware wallet for the next 100M bitcoin users. Our goal is economic empowerment - starting with bringing easy-to-use, reliable self-custody to a global audience. We're assembling a team deeply experienced in an extremely wide range of disciplines, including business, operations, design, software, hardware, security, and so many other aspects of product delivery. Come build the future of crypto-enabling hardware with us!

We are hiring Android software engineers to build the software customers use to interact with our hardware wallet.

You will:

  • Ship features in a new, beautiful, reliable, resilient, and open-source Square Android application

  • Craft pixel-perfect, intuitive UI that makes bitcoin self-custody accessible to a global audience

  • Make key architecture and infrastructure decisions as you develop the product from the ground up

  • Work with with designers, product managers, firmware and backend engineers to establish product scope and to design and prioritize features

  • Emphasize customer experience in all of your work, from early design to field observability and continuous improvement


Qualifications


You have:

  • 3+ years of experience shipping features in world-class Android applications

  • Preferably, experience developing products that involve interacting with custom peripherals, or experience with designing and building backend APIs that your mobile applications interact with

  • Interest in bitcoin and preferably, significant experience in developing for crypto applications

    • Note: with this role, we are hiring for multiple positions - and not all of the initial team needs to have crypto experience
