OPPORTUNITY

"The best minds of my generation are thinking about how to make people click ads" – Hammerbacher (quote)

Nobody is designing technology for the Base of the Pyramid (BoP) -- the poor. BoP technology needs to be intuitive, fast, responsive apps that work in spite of connectivity challenges – requiring the same kind of engineering prowess as that of a Facebook Engineer. We want to make it possible. We want to democratize developing technology for the BoP by making it easy and economical. We want everyone to be able to build applications and create impact. We think Android is the solution.

We are working at the intersection of Data, Software (Android) and Hardware to create magic!

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Do what you are best at: build great apps! Field visits, prototypes, iterate, deploy…and repeat.
  • Enhance the framework and open it to developers
  • Contribue to Open Source. We have forked TouchDB-Android and ported Lucene to Android as TouchDB-Android-Lucene. You will help maintain these and create/fork many others.
  • Learn, work on the entire stack. Teach. Build a team.

Requirements

SKILLS

  • Be able to build backward compatible, device independent applications for Android—brownie points if you’ve worked with Android NDK as well
  • Experience with Test Driven Development (TDD) on Android—using tools like Gradle, Maven, Roboelectric, Monkey Runner
  • Bonus if you have worked with OpenCV
