Project Detail

Each day, millions of people use the open source Wikipedia app in over three hundred languages. Help us thoughtfully craft user experiences that empower and delight our users as they read and contribute to the world’s largest resource for free knowledge.

You are responsible for:

  • Writing clean, concise code in Kotlin
  • Working with other engineers through discussions, code review, and more
  • Collaborating with designers, product managers, and other engineers to iterate on new features
  • Ensuring the quality of the app through thoughtful code architecture decisions and automated testing
  • Triage issues reported by our users and debug, track or resolve them 

Skills and Experience:

  • At least 1 year of professional Android development experience in Kotlin. (Our Android engineers are excited to share knowledge and tips they’ve picked up over the years - and also look forward to learning from you!)
  • At least one app in Google Play Store that you’ve contributed to. (We’d love to see what you’ve been working on.)
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills (Our team is remote, but we still enjoy close collaboration!)

Qualities that are important to us:

  • A desire to learn and discover - about both Android development and our broader technology stack, about what the root cause of an obscure bug is, about how the Wikipedia communities operate, and more.
  • Constantly improving your craft in pursuit of creating the best possible user experiences and solving complex problems
  • Proactively finding and reporting potential bugs or user experience issues for discussion with the team
  • We are a global organization with flexible work schedules, but we’re also collaborative. To ensure there are enough opportunities to communicate, this role needs at least four hours of your work day to occur between 14:00 UTC and 22:00 UTC.

Additionally, we’d love it if you have:

  • At least 2 years of experience in software development 
  • Familiarity with modern best practices for Android app architecture
  • Familiarity with Material 3, Google’s open-source design system, and its implementation.
  • Written unit and UI tests

  • A history of open source contributions
  • Contributed to Wikipedia or other free knowledge projects
