Senior Android Software Engineer

SpotOn - Chicago, IL (In-House only, relocation available)


Looking for an environment which will help foster your skills as well as encourage you to make your own personal mark on a company’s culture? Interested in writing business-critical mobile software which is seen by thousands of users on a daily basis? SpotOn is the place for you!

With a tech team based out of an open and sunny office in Chicago’s West Loop, SpotOn is a fast-growing marketing and loyalty platform that helps customers check in to earn rewards at their favorite local businesses using our web, mobile phone, and tablet products. Once customers have checked in, the business owners can use SpotOn to reach out and connect with their customers, and manage their online reputation.

As an Android Software Engineer at SpotOn, you’ll be tasked with development and maintenance of our Android tablet and mobile phone applications which face thousands of customers and merchants on a daily basis. Working alongside our small but mighty team of mobile developers, you’ll discover and utilize the latest industry best practices to deliver the smoothest experience possible in apps that need to “Just Work” at any hour of the day or night.

Due to the small and friendly nature of our mobile crew, this position includes a unique ability to leave a lasting impact on the development culture at SpotOn. We’re looking for an equally unique sense of drive and creativity. Constant innovation and flexibility are critical to modern mobile development, so we’re looking for people who aren’t afraid to speak up if they’ve found a new, possibly better, way to build quality products, whatever that may be!
