Mailchimp is a leading marketing platform for small business. We empower millions of customers around the world to build their brands and grow their companies with a suite of marketing automation, multichannel campaign, CRM, and analytics tools.

We’re looking for a Senior Android engineer to join a distributed Mobile product team to build features on the Android platform. As an all-in-one marketing platform, MailChimp is growing fast and is working on new products to help small businesses grow.

Mailchimp Mobile engineers enjoy the camaraderie of a mobile-specific product team. We are curious builders who make a big impact by embracing creativity and independence — your thoughts and ideas can quickly turn into valuable assets.

At Mailchimp, we value learning, collaboration, and action. You’ll find success here if you enjoy writing code, but you're aware that your job isn't only about shipping: you are a welcoming contributor who knows how to communicate with your team in order to provide great software. You should be comfortable with distributed teams, and excited about building a strong, inclusive environment for everyone who joins after you.


What you'll do here: 

  • Build new Mobile features from concept through implementation.
  • Work with other leads to set technical direction and best practices on the Android platform.
  • Write and maintain clean, maintainable, and well-tested code.
  • Help ideate, scope, estimate, and prioritize work
  • Investigate and resolve defects, and ensure a high standard of application performance.
  • Contribute to CICD pipelines, tooling and automation, maintenance and future proofing.
  • Ensure quality by performing thorough testing, contributing to the team’s test suite and peer reviews.
  • Share your knowledge with teammates through documentation, technical mentoring, Pull Request reviews, office hours, blog articles, Tech Talks, and other avenues.


We'd love to hear from you if: 

  • You have experience developing large-scale, commercial mobile apps in an Android environment setup for Continuous Integration
  • You are comfortable developing in Java and Kotlin
  • You can reference apps you have developed in the Google Play store.
  • You have experience driving technical projects, prioritizing work, identifying dependencies, facilitating technical decisions and team discussions.
  • You’re comfortable with troubleshooting and debugging large applications.
  • You enjoy automating repetitive processes to increase team efficiency and reduce overall toil.
  • You’re comfortable collaborating closely with product managers and designers, generating ideas or providing estimates that will influence your team’s roadmap.
  • You’re a thoughtful communicator and a strong aptitude for giving.

How you’ll work:  Our Core Leadership Behaviors are the observable and measurable leadership actions and skills that contribute to our effectiveness and success in our roles at Mailchimp. They determine how we do our jobs and how we meet our goals, enabling us to bring out the best in each other and execute on our strategic plans to deliver for our customers.

  • Thriving in Complexity: You unravel and make sense of potentially sophisticated, incomplete, and contradictory information to effectively solve problems.
