Senior Android Developer

Hydrow is looking for a Senior Android Developer to join our team!

Hydrow is the Live Outdoor Reality (LOR)™ rower. With workouts led by world-class athletes, including some training for the U.S. National Rowing team, Hydrow delivers a live, on-river rowing experience at-home that engages two times more of the body's muscles than cycling. Now more than ever, people's over-scheduled, stressful lives leave little time for meaningful exercise and the soul-enriching opportunity to spend time outdoors. Hydrow's innovative LOR technology delivers challenging workouts from gorgeous locations around the world, simultaneously connecting users with an entire community of fellow rowers. 

At Hydrow, you’ll have the chance to shape a company that will disrupt the fitness industry and create a meaningful community unmatched in the marketplace today. If this sounds exciting, we want to hear from you.

JOB OVERVIEW
We’re looking for talented engineers to focus on building great Android apps using Kotlin and React Native. You may also contribute to our IOS apps using Swift. You may also hack our AWS infrastructure using Node, Python, API Gateway, Cognito, Aurora Postgres, and DynamoDB. You will collaborate with teams from across our small company including software and industrial designers, marketing, and world class coaches and rowers. You may work with our Rowbot, which is an invaluable tool that provides known force and stroke rates as it rows our Hydrow rowing machine. You will help shape our architecture and help define interfaces for our rowing machine and cloud infrastructure.

REQUIREMENTS

  • You have 1+ years of experience writing production-ready Android apps.
  • You are fluent in JS and JS frameworks.
  • You are down with working in Kotlin and React Native.
