Medium’s mission is to help people deepen their understanding of the world and discover ideas that matter. We are building a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers.

We’re looking for a Staff Android Engineer to join our talented cross-functional team, where they’ll own key aspects of our Android application and contribute to our core mobile architecture.
