To spearhead this mission, we’re looking for a passionate engineer who is keen to participate in the lived experience of our engineers to identify frictions they face in their day-to-day, surface those pain points to relevant teams, and work with our Mobile Development Enabling Teams to remedy them.
As a Dev Enablement Engineer, your primary role will be to:

  • Identify & analyze the largest points of friction in the lived experience of our mobile engineers
  • Provide insights & work with Mobile Development Enabling Teams in removing those frictions via solution implementation
  • Enable successful adoption of solutions delivered by Mobile Development Enabling Teams
    If you’re a truly passionate developer advocate who enjoys surfacing & solving socio-technical frictions across the wider tech organization, this could be a perfect role for you. The role requires a combination of strong technical and social skills and provides an exciting career growth opportunity.

Focus areas:

  • Amplifying feedback loops
  • Lowering cognitive load
    Examples of problems to look at:
  • Pipeline experience (automating the creation of new services for mobile releases)
  • Observability & Performance monitoring/profiling tools (crash rates, networking reliability, logging)
  • Improvement & scaling the app build + test running flows
  • PR process
  • Repo documentation
  • Flow state interruptions

  • Proficient in applying a data-informed approach to decision-making (utilizing relevant metrics, to optimize processes, and achieve measurable outcomes)
  • Humble, curious, and open-minded with a growth mindset

Below are technologies that we use to help us solve customer problems, so it would be great if you have experience in some/all of the below:

  • Solid experience in mobile-specific development (Android, iOS, Flutter)
  • Good understanding of the full mobile development life cycle as well as the overall landscape, architectures and emerging tech. Understanding of backend life cycle is an advantage.
