About Faire

Faire is an online wholesale marketplace built on the belief that the future is local — independent retailers around the globe are doing more revenue than Walmart and Amazon combined. At Faire, we're using the power of tech, data, and machine learning to connect this thriving community of entrepreneurs across the globe. Picture your favorite boutique in town — we help them discover the best products from around the world to sell in their stores. With the right tools and insights, we believe that we can level the playing field so that small businesses everywhere can compete with these big box and e-commerce giants.

By supporting the growth of independent businesses, Faire is driving positive economic impact in local communities, globally. We’re looking for smart, resourceful and passionate people to join us as we power the shop local movement. If you believe in community, come join ours.

About this role 

Our mobile apps are crucial to our vision: Empowering entrepreneurs to chase their dreams. We want to empower entrepreneurs to run their business from their pocket through a world class mobile app. 

We care about stunning design, great UX, and good engineering practices -- we love to write software that is secure, tested, easy to maintain, responsive, and performant. We build minimum viable products, deploy to production weekly, A/B test customer-facing changes, listen to the data, and iterate.

We are looking for a Staff Engineer to help lead our mobile platform team, which powers our build system, core architecture, and the feature infrastructure that enables our product teams to iterate quickly with high quality.

As a Staff Android Engineer, you’ll collaborate with us to: 

  • Lay the necessary foundations for infrastructure, developer velocity, team processes, design systems and other elements of the product development process with a long-term perspective.
  • Improve developer velocity and drive the future of our mobile tech stack
  • Help scale the entire mobile engineering team’s processes and systems. 
  • Coach and mentor mobile engineers in a fast paced & hyper growth environment.
  • Raise the bar on the quality of our mobile apps through broad testability strategies. 
  • Drive our technical strategy around unified architecture and exploration into Kotlin Multi-platform 

We're excited about you because you have:

  • 6+ years of Android experience having worked on multiple apps shipped to the app store
  • Experience shipping and maintaining a mobile app over an extended period of time - working with mobile apps at scale or having helped apps scale to millions of users is a plus! 
  • A passion for programming alongside strong problem solving and architecture abilities 
  • A love for technology, and an insatiable curiosity for new tools to solve real problems
  • A bachelor's degree in Computer Science/Software Engineering or equivalent industry experience
  • Previous experience on a platform team and a passion for scaling systems for a growing organization and user base
  • A high bar for engineering excellence 
  • Curiosity to drive engineering impact outside of the Android tech stack

Technologies we use and teach:

  • Kotlin, Jetpack Compose, Gradle
  • Kotlin Multi-platform
  • Diffable Data Sources, UICollectionViewCompositionalLayout, Combine
  • Protocol Buffers
