We expect you to be experienced in Android development and we also expect you to be eager to learn, improving, and extending your skills.

All team members play an integral role in assuring good design and high-quality code by participating in design and code reviews.

Whatever you’re good at, we will find a way for you to be able to do it. We expect to rapidly grow both our market penetration and our team. We expect that you and your responsibilities will grow with us.

You’ll have the chance to be in at the very beginning of a company that we expect to transform home delivery, giving people the security, convenience, and reduced cost that will free them to focus on their family, life, and work. We expect you to bring your passion to our mission. We also expect you to take care of yourself because we’re in this for the long haul and we want you to be with us for it as well. Part of your job will be making sure that you and your teamwork in a sustainable way for the good of us all.
