About the role

Drift is seeking passionate engineers to help us improve our existing chat, video and create new mobile experiences for Android and iOS platforms.

 We work together on close knit, small teams to develop our apps and as a result wear many hats. As a Mobile engineer at Drift you will be delivering new features, together with other teams defining the data flows and APIs used by the apps, reacting to customer feedback & internal user testing, helping to ensure quality, working closely with our UX team to prototype new experiences and helping expand our app's reach however possible. 

We are also passionate about respecting code quality and following our defined best practices while always searching for new, better ways to get things done. We value our ego-free code reviews and have continuous integration set up to test our pull requests, deliver nightly builds and run nightly regressions of our automated tests. 

 Specific responsibilities include:

  • Develop new features and bug fixes for our iOS and Android apps.
  • Implement & iterate with our UX team to bring features from conception to launch.
  • Participate in code reviews to ensure code quality and shared knowledge.
  • Partner with other teams on defining the backend IA and data flows required by our apps

As a Tech Lead, you’ll be responsible for managing a small engineering team and collaborating with Product & Design to set goals, milestones, and to synthesize customer stories into a development plan. You will be responsible for guiding architectural decisions, ensure excellent engineering quality and mentor engineers to do their best work!


What's it like to work at Drift?

We help companies build better pipeline faster by connecting them now with the people who want to buy now. Drift is changing the way businesses buy from businesses by building software tools that make conversational commerce accessible to anyone. We want the world to revolve around the customer, and we lead by example.

Drift hires people who want to make a difference in the lives of others. In product, we have engineers, PMs, and designers with broad sets of skills (from a variety of backgrounds) who are ready to tackle some of the most meaningful problems in the industry—from building adaptive AI for bot-supported conversations, to designing next generation chat experiences, to bridging the gap between old and new ways to buy—through this work, we're changing the global buying experience.

We look at Drift as a constantly-adapting learning experience; for all of us, we believe we're at the forefront of an enormous opportunity. We support one other in our curiosity and creation—which we pursue through small, frequent releases to see what works for our customers. We are enormously reflective as a team and knowledge-sharing across disciplines powers our day-to-day work.

Product teams at Drift are small by design. We want you to feel like you're part of a successful garage band. These teams are supported by centralized groups that build tooling and train on topics like UX, security, compliance, and leadership so we can get better as we grow larger.

We want to work in a company of positive, hardworking people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. The kind of people who are committed to going out of their way to succeed in their work, and to help other Drifters improve over the long term (by helping them get better at what they do).

We celebrate wins as a company. Whether it's sales bonuses, trips for team MVPs, or the most "high-fives", we celebrate one another as much as possible. We also have a culture of transparency that we carry on with extraordinary alignment, executive reports, and automated stats for everyone.

In both our products and our people, we aim to share the pains and successes of our customers. We are building a company that is abnormally successful. To do that, we need to both embrace tradition, and seek success that goes far beyond "the way we've always done things".

Drift is committed to being an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate based upon race, religion, color, national origin, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, transgender status, sexual stereotypes, age, status as a protected veteran, status as an individual with a disability, or other applicable legally protected characteristics. We also consider qualified applicants with criminal histories, consistent with applicable federal, state and local law. Drift is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for candidates with disabilities in our recruiting process. If you need any assistance or accommodations due to a disability, please let us know at [email protected]
