Hey HN! I'm an Android engineer on the mobile growth team and we're looking to grow our team with another Android engineer (the second role called out above). Right now there are 4 of us on Android (5 on iOS), working on a variety of projects related to sharing, referrals, push notifications, onboarding, login, signup, internationalization, and more! There's two key things I love about the growth team - First, the ability to experiment on any idea I think might improve our product, and second, the ability to collaborate widely across the company on my projects. Even as a new grad new hire (~9 months on the job and right out of college), I was able to go from proposing an idea, formulating a hypothesis and test plan, to then rolling out the change because I was able to prove out the value with experimentation. And across the different things I've worked on I've gotten to work with our messaging team, trust team, trips team, and search team, to name a few. If you like driving your own projects, and collaborating with incredibly smart people, I want you on my team now!
