Jobs at Tenthbit Inc.

Android Engineer

Location: San Francisco, CA

Department: Engineering

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

As an engineer at TenthBit, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a talented engineering and design team, who care about the quality and craft of their work. With over 600,000 messages being sent between couples every day, and 100 million messages sent in total, we have many interesting problems to solve. Here’s just a few of the engineering problems we’ve tackled:

  • Built a custom messaging infrastructure that combines websockets with a REST-like API to deliver messages between couples at top speed, including paranoid reconnect logic to keep them connected at all times. We don't use XMPP, instead evolving a speed centered in-house protocol that you will be able to contribute to.
  • Built an extremely optimized ListView that handles lots of media items while creating a smooth and consistent user experience on over 1000 devices.
  • Making sure that our app works across devices which greatly vary in memory, screen size and resolution.

If these are the types of problems you'd like to take on, drop us a line!
