Software Engineer - Mobile

Deliv

Join us in disrupting logistics and setting the new standard for last mile delivery, a multibillion dollar market. We are a b2b service, behind the scenes of 4000+ national omni-channel retailers, e-commerce players and businesses (i.e. Best Buy, Walgreens, Kohl’s, Williams-Sonoma, Google Shopping Express), transforming how goods move around a city.  Deliv has raised $40 million, including our recent $28M B-round, and is backed by global logistics leader UPS, leading Venture Capital investors including Upfront Ventures and RPM Ventures, and the nation’s top REIT investors.

We're looking for talented individuals to help us empower our driver partners through intuitive mobile experiences, provide robust APIs to make integrating with us painless, ensure service levels and cost efficiency with our real-time routing system, and more!

About The Opportunity

Deliv is seeking an awesome mobile developer to expand our team of eight “full-stack” engineers (2 of whom spend more time in mobile with you). The role will have you doing Android and iOS development with some occasional Ruby on Rails backend/API work, so you should be strong at one, decent at another, and willing/interested to learn in the third. 

We have a culture of “move fast, and try not to break too many things”. We’re looking to fill this position from our Menlo Park headquarters.

What You'll Do

  • Develop new features for our iOS/Android native apps (Objective-C, and Java).  
  • Feel strongly about moving to swift? Bring it. We’re open to all good ideas and passion.
  • Back up features with corresponding tests (we like tests, on all the platforms!).
  • Help make sure our mobile applications are fast, reliable, and easy to use.
  • Improve our mobile codebases with refactoring, cleanup, and good ideas.  
  • Work with our operations and product teams to plan what we build.
  • Help guide architecture, implementation, and engineering process.

You Are

Your experience may span one year or quite a few, but you're proficient with technologies and you're excited to learn.

  • Ready to shake things up in a stodgy mature industry, using some very cool technology.
  • A passion for e-commerce, crowd-sourcing, and/or mobile development.
  • Fascinated by geolocation data, vehicle routing problems, traveling salesman problems, or figuring out how do we get that driver from here to there efficiently.
  • A real teammate. Culture is critical here. We’ve all got a million things to do, but you’re happy to chip in wherever you can to help your teammates out when they’re underwater.
  • Someone that can roll with it. As a small startup, things get shuffled, priorities change. You understand that. It’s an adventure.
  • Someone who recognizes the art of engineering. We like writing tests, CI, and love code quality metrics. Code reviews are awesome, and you’re always looking forward to learning something new. Engineering brown bags? Pick your topic.
  • Someone who’s comfortable working quickly, with lots of iterations, and shipping often.

What You'll Need

  • One or more year(s) of experience building production Android and/or iOS native apps (objective-c, android).
  • Knowing the corresponding view lifecycles for both platforms.
  • Experience with REST APIs—you should know the REST basics inside and out.
  • Familiar with the git workflow.

Bonus Points

  • You actually like auto-layout.
  • Open-source projects on github.
  • Experience with location-based applications.

Benefits and Perks:

  • Competitive Salary
  • Equity in fast growing, early stage startup
  • 401k plan
  • Health, Vision, and Dental Insurance
  • 10 Paid Holidays
  • Unlimited Vacation Policy – Work hard take time when you need it
