Gowalla looking for Android Developers (Austin, TX)

At Pivotal Labs, one of the services we provide our clients is helping them interview and hire. This is an excellent opportunity for you to learn Extreme Programming by working side-by-side with Pivotal’s talented and experienced developers while at the same time joining a small and dynamic product team. Pivotal Labs and our clients place a strong emphasis on Agile development and its many aspects: Pair Programming, Test-Driven Development, rapid iterations, and frequent refactoring.

Gowalla, based in Austin, Texas, is looking for a Senior Android Developer. The full job posting follows.

Gowalla Inc. is a well-funded startup making an unconventional game for the latest smartphones, using virtual collectibles to motivate location discovery and sharing. We are a small, growing team, with strong design and technical chops. We work from a big, bright office in downtown Austin with multiple Xboxes and a full fridge. We’ve got an A-list roster of investors and advisors. We’ve got a passionate, fast-growing user base. And we’ve got a huge opportunity to build a genre-defining product.

About you: you will assume primary responsibility for Gowalla’s Android client. Gowalla for Android is more than a port of the original iPhone app — it should embrace the unique strengths of the platform. You won’t just be implementing features, but helping to determine the product direction for the platform. If you’re excited by the opportunity to build a stand-out, in-demand app for a hot platform, this is the gig for you. The position is full-time, on-site in Austin. Ideal candidates will have:

  • Broad programming language experience, with significant Java experience. Mobile (especially Android) is a plus.
  • Demonstrable ability to ship user-facing code
  • Strong design sense
  • Experience with test-driven development
  • Familiarity with web development, REST service integration, HTTP caching concepts, etc.
