I am not learning anything at my current company (app is too simple, rest of team is very junior), and was wondering what some great Android or mobile-centric companies are.
I already know Square and Airbnb are top notch, but what are some others?

    Loads of companies in the Bay area, but depends on what you want. All the PAULs are very mobile focused and are hiring for Android, but then you have to hope the IPO does well. Also most startups, but the hours there might not be that great.
    You could join Microsoft/LinkedIn for nicer hours, Facebook for money, Amazon for free AWS...
    Or try OOM?

      PAULs are the unicorns IPOing this year: Pinterest, Airbnb, Uber, Lyft.

      OOM is opportunity open market. Salesforce lets you switch to a different team if you want, and there are many Android products at Salesforce

      Ahh ok, I had a feeling that’s what it was.
      I applied to Airbnb and Lyft, and unfortunately didn’t make it to an offer (although, I have confidence I’ll pass all the interviews next time!).
      I’ll try Pinterest and Uber.
      I actually just left Salesforce and am working for a startup, but am craving really great Android teams. The team I left at Salesforce was phenomenal, but I couldn’t handle the commute anymore, unfortunately.

      Just btw, at least Airbnb, uber, and Lyft are all the city so you'd probably have the same commute issues. Not sure where Pinterest is, though

      Oh, I actually live in the city. The commute I was making prior was to the Palo Alto office, since I was working for an acquisition.

      Oh, then you can pretty much choose anything! Put those kotlin/flutter skills to work! ;)

  • Consumer facing companies (Robinhood, Discord, Slack) as opposed to enterprise focused ones (Splunk, Oracle, Databricks)
