  • Build & maintain JW Player SDK for Android deliverables (.aar library, demo applications, API documentation, etc.)
  • Prototype new ideas & explore innovative new features in the SDK
  • Interact with our growing community of Android developers
  • Work on a cross-functional team to define business requirements & set product direction
  • Work as part of a scrum team in an Agile environment


  • 2+ years software engineering
  • 3+ years Android app and/or SDK development experience

  • Experience working in a team of agile, collaborative & resourceful engineers
  • Bachelor's degree or higher in Computer Science or equivalent work experience
  • Experience with modern software development tools such as Git, Jenkins, Gradle, etc.
