Engineering at Backbone

"Backbone feels as first-party as you could make something that is literally not first-party feel." - TechCrunch

Our highly-integrated software stack presents an unbelievably unique set of engineering challenges. The interplay among embedded software on our devices with native app software and back-end software is crucial to bringing it all together. Moreover, we've found that building products for players can be fun and rewarding because it's insanely fun to play games on your own product!

What you’ll be doing

  • Develop and architect core product features like drops, core gameplay, content creation, and rich presence in our Android app

  • Collaborate with designers to create interfaces that not only look great but are intuitive and fun to use

  • Architect elegant and maintainable code, writing automated tests to enable us to move fast and deliver quality

What we’re looking for

  • Understanding of Android development frameworks and app fundamentals

  • Significant experience developing and shipping real-world Android applications of a very high quality and polish

  • Strong computer science and software engineering fundamentals

  • Passionate about product and vision

  • Excellent attention to detail and an eye for visuals. Design skills are not required but you should be able to critique and modify existing designs

  • Remote-friendly

Bonus Points

  • Familiarity with reactive programming (e.g., RxSwift) and GraphQL

  • Experience with web development (React, TypeScript)
