Sprout Social powers open communication between individuals, brands and communities through elegant, sophisticated software. We are relentless about solving hard problems for our customers and committed to both customer and team success.
In this role, you will work on the Mobile Team as a manager and contributor, working to design, code and grow our iOS and Android applications and to nurture our growing team.

Companies like Dropbox, Fender, Zipcar and Evernote rely on our products to create stronger relationships with their customers through social media. Our engineers create the products to help make this possible. Embedded as a member of our Mobile squad, you will be part of the day-to-day Agile development environment. Part of this will be supporting and developing other members of the team - conducting regular check-ins, providing career and professional support, coaching and advising, conducting performance reviews, etc. While you should be excited about writing production-level code, we want you to be equally excited about the trajectory of your team and your part in forming them as stellar software engineers.

Ideal Candidate
* Master knowledge of Swift/Objective-C and common iOS frameworks or master knowledge of the Android SDK and Java * You have a passion for mobile, keeping up with the emerging trends and mobile design patterns * You’re known for working well independently with little guidance, but are also a great collaborator and enjoy coaching other engineers * Experience with every stage of software development process: design, architecture, deployment, code reviews, maintenance, documentation, etc. * Growing a strong engineering culture in an agile environment is something that you feel strongly about and have done before * You possess excellent leadership, project & logistics management, and people mentoring skills
