Us

BirdCall is a creative, quick-service tech restaurant concept based in Denver, CO,  focused on making all-natural foods more accessible. Great effort is put toward finding the freshest ingredients as well as establishing relationships with like-minded partners. Our vision is to share food, expose creativity, cherish our guests, while doing good in the communities we love. The technology team is responsible for developing all the systems that make BirdCall successful, from the kitchen display systems used by our staff, to the kiosks used by customers to order their food.

You

You have a passion for high quality, reliable, and maintainable Android Apps. You’re comfortable working side by side with engineers, product managers, and designers to make decisions in order to quickly deliver software. You’re agile and retrospective, not afraid to identify what we’re doing wrong so we can fix it, and what we're doing right so we can build upon it. Finally, you are generally curious and have interests in different areas. Above all, you judge your success by the success of your team and the happiness of BirdCall customers and staff. 

The Job

You will lead the development of all Birdcall Android Apps, both consumer and internally facing. You’ll work with product owners, designers, and other engineering team members to build and maintain these Apps. You will  be responsible for App deployments and releases as well as the stability and reliability of our Apps.
