LiveLike is looking to bring on a Senior Android Engineer to be the Android Guru for our team. This person will architect the initial frameworks for our Android apps and function as a tech lead for all aspects of Android native development. At LiveLike you will help create software products that are cutting edge, easy to use, and that make an appreciated and notable difference in our customers daily lives. There is a strong emphasis on writing highly reliable and maintainable code for the long-run. We add new features regularly, refactor constantly, and rewrite when necessary.
