Zenly was created because we wanted an easy way to know what our friends were doing. Naturally, we created an app - a map that lets you see your friends and what they’re up to. Millions of people around the world have since made us realize that Zenly goes beyond letting you know what your friends are doing. It actually brings you to spend more time with the people who matter most and moves you a little closer to them even when you can’t. We’re a small team of <60 passionate people determined to offer an alternative to products that were meant to connect us but only alienated us. An alternative that represents a true reflection of your world and those you care most about.
As an Android Engineer, you will work in a long-lived dedicated team/squad alongside contributors of all disciplines (Backend, Design, iOS, Product, Scientists, QA). You and your team will be responsible for an overall company goal and will work together at defining the roadmap that will lead to the most impact.
Currently, Android Engineers are working in teams like Conversation, Growth, App Platform, and Maps to quote only non-internal team names.
Zenly is written mainly in Kotlin with remains of Java but also quite uniquely in Go (we embed a shared library written in Go that deals with stuff like data synchronization, Network transport and cross-os app feature backends like the Chat or the Location pipeline). Our min SDK is 21.
We make extensive usage of RxJava in structural parts of the app like (lifecycle bound tasks, scheduling, multi-threading, reactive UI model, automated tracing) and have a fair number of internal frameworks built on top of it.
Last but not least, we try to push Zenly to the edge of the devices' capabilities and had much fun making non-traditional heavy UI experiences and animations on Android, sometimes heavily tweaking or going beyond what the system normally provides.
