The Job

Love your smartphone? Have little or no experience building mobile applications, but want to learn? Like Java and want to learn Android, the sexiest Java technology on the block? You may have just found the perfect opportunity.

Scribd is already one of the largest applications on the web, and now we are making an aggressive push into mobile. We believe that existing mobile reading experiences do not take full advantage of the power of the new smartphones, and that we can do a better job. With our library of over 150 million articles, our mobile apps will give consumers access to more written content than any other app currently available.

We are building out a terrific mobile team with experience in both iPhone and Android platforms to create these applications. However, we are supplementing the team with a limited number of engineers who have a strong general computer science background but are not yet expert mobile developers. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to get into mobile app development.

The Ideal Profile

We are looking for people with a strong engineering background who enjoy building high quality products used by millions. Because Android is based on Java, a strong understanding of Java development is required. A good product sense, an understanding of the mobile app ecosystem, and strong personal initiative are essential.
