Dow Jones Manager, Mobile Engineering (Android) in NEW YORK, New York

Job Description:

You’ve been building Android apps for years. You have a love/hate relationship with Gradle. You’ve lived through the cycle of adopting open source libraries and then ditching them when Google moves on. You’re intrigued but skeptical about React Native. Maybe you’ve even written and deployed an API to AWS.

You’re looking for more than just another engineering job. You want your work to be meaningful and have an impact.

Come join our team at the Wall Street Journal!

We’re looking for you to:

* Lead a small but growing team of Android engineers

* Design, develop, and test mobile applications for The Wall Street Journal, and contribute to shared initiatives with other Dow Jones brands.

* Help set technical direction and long-term strategy for future mobile initiatives.

* Play an active role in the product development process.

* Keep an eye on technical innovations and changing trends in the mobile landscape.

We’d like you to have:

* 3-4 years native Android development experience.

* Experience leading a team with Agile methodologies. If you’ve ever been in an official management role before, even better!

* A strong background in software engineering and web technologies. Previous experience with at least one modern web platform (Node.js, Rails, PHP) is a huge plus.

* Familiarity with API design for highly scalable services

* A natural curiosity and desire to understand and even contribute to the entire technology stack

* A passion for building products your users will love`

If this describes you then we’d love to talk to you!
