Invest in Yourself

Want to help everyday Americans build wealth? Financial inequality is increasing and too many people are getting left behind. At Stash, we believe in the power of simplifying investing, making it easy and affordable for everyday Americans to build wealth and achieve their financial goals.

We’re one of the fastest growing fintechs in the U.S. and have had another record-breaking year. In 2021 we almost doubled our headcount and valuation. Our personal finance app makes investing easy and affordable; this year 6 million customers set aside more than $3 billion with Stash.

Prioritizing People is one of our core values and has been key to a healthy work-life balance and a great sense of fulfillment and inclusion. We employ a true people first – hybrid model. Live and work where you feel the most productive, whether that is in our home, in an office, or a combination of both. Anywhere in the US or UK.

Let’s solve complex problems and tackle wealth inequality.

We are seeking a Senior Android Engineer.

6M customers have set aside more than $3B with Stash. Our rapid shipping cycles mean you can deliver value to millions of people and help them build wealth daily.

There are three different front-end applications that Stash customers can choose from when accessing all the functionality that Stash has to offer: an Android application written in Kotlin, an iOS application written in Swift, and a Web application written in JavaScript using React.

At Stash we use a variety of different languages, frameworks, tools, and vendors to accomplish our goals. We use the right tool for the job when it comes to reaching for tech that will solve whatever challenge we’re facing. Stronger versus more relaxed type system and type checking, functional versus procedural programming, etc. We make deliberate decisions that we feel will help our platform grow and mature and support more and more customers.

Our technology stack features languages like Ruby, Scala, JavaScript, Swift, Kotlin, and Lua. Hand in hand with Ruby is the Rails framework which has allowed us to move quickly in both the early days and with a lot of the newer things we are currently building. We write a lot of backend code in Scala – for these projects we like to leverage Akka HTTP. Most of the time we reach for a relational database like Postgres to store data, and we rely upon Redis as a cache. We’re big fans of Terraform and Kubernetes, too.

We hire the best engineers regardless of programming language or background. We have invested (and continue to invest in) our onboarding process so even if you join with no specific tech experience, you’ll have the time and space to learn.  We consider Stash a learning organization and work hard to allow Engineers the time and the space to learn and grow.   We encourage tech experimentation and continuous improvement.

We’ve had tremendous growth in the past few years and have an exciting product roadmap ahead of us.

If you’re interested in solving complex problems associated with scaling a popular consumer facing app and working in an open, diverse, and inclusive environment, Stash might be the fit for you!

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience working on Android
  • Proficient in Android SDK and life-cycle components
  • Extensive knowledge of Android UI components
  • Familiarity with RESTful APIs to connect Android applications to back-end services
  • Creative problem solver with a passion for testing, debugging, and overall code quality
  • Data-driven decision maker, willing to take risks, fail fast, and iterate quickly

Gold Stars:

  • Experience in Model-View-Presenter architectural pattern
  • Experience with Kotlin, RxJava, Dagger 2, and Retrofit/OkHttp
  • Experience with Coroutines
  • A keen interest in automated testing
