Software Development Engineer – Android

Job description

Zomato as an organization has grown and scaled multifold over the last few years. We are committed to bringing the best food to everyone; no matter who they are and what they can afford.

To know more about what’s cooking at Zomato, here is our Annual Report FY’19 and this is what life at Zomato looks like. Creating and re-inventing has been a key practice at Zomato and at this point we require folks who can help us keep pace with the dynamic ecosystem we are all a part of. Check out our blog for all the latest updates. 

About the role

Zomato is more than 8 years old on the Play Store, and one of the editor’s choice apps. In 19 countries, the de facto way people order or discover food is Zomato. We have been delighting users and helping them chalk their food journeys for the greater part of this decade.

The mobile platform team at Zomato works on performance, reliability and sustainability of our mobile properties. As a member of the platform team, you are expected to be always on the lookout for performance and reliability issues, and not just fix them, but ensure an architecture that does not lead to them in the first place. 

You should have been working with the Android SDK for at least the last several API versions, and upgrading target SDK and support libraries should be something you can give a conference talk on. Whenever you are using an app, you are always looking for the minute ‘jank’, the little stutter and imagining what might have been the cause for it. 

Here's what you'll do day-to-day

  • Upkeep of general Android codebase at Zomato - keeping SDKs, libraries up to date, ensuring latest security patches to libraries are pulled in

  • Maintain and evolve the architecture of multiple Zomato android apps

  • Build reusable libraries, toolkits and developer tools for usage across multiple mobile teams on Zomato

  • Own the process of ensuring our apps are always highly reliable and performant. Always targeting 100% crash and ANR free users

  • Discover, design, develop, deploy, debug. Repeat!


Who fits the bill?

  • Several years of experience with Java, C++ and Kotlin

  • 3+ Years of experience with the Android SDK

  • Strong computer science fundamentals - equivalent of a CS/IT bachelors degree

  • Experience using and maintaining CI/CD pipelines

  • Inclination towards writing tests, following TDD

  • Understanding of MVVM, MVP, MVC models and the ability to choose based on situations
