Kotlin Multiplatform Software Engineer

Philo: TV on the Internet (TVoIP)

At Philo, we’re a group of technology and product people who set out to build the future of television, marrying the best in modern technology with the most compelling medium ever invented — in short, we’re building the TV experience that we’ve always wanted for ourselves. In practice this means leveraging cloud delivery, modern tech stacks, machine learning, and hand-crafted native app experiences on all of our platforms. We aim to deliver a rock solid experience on the streaming basics, while cooking up next generation multi-screen and multi-user playback experiences.

Kotlin Multiplatform at Philo

The Kotlin Multiplatform team creates and maintains a shared business logic layer that is used across 9+ platforms (e.g. iOS, Tizen, FireTV, Web, Chromecast, etc.). We’re building the libraries that respond to user input and tell our UI what it should display on 10s of millions of devices, which are collectively responsible for a huge fraction of the billions of minutes watched on Philo each year.

Currently, our Kotlin Multiplatform libraries power our video player, our casting functionality (Philo Connect), and analytics, but we’re in the process of expanding them to cover even more of our app functionality. We leverage the MVI pattern, but our views are outside of the KMM codebase, since we believe UI should be left to the “native” code.

We are a small but growing team of tinkerers, who are comfortable at every level of the frontend stack. On a given day, you might be diving into the details of Kotlin’s `iconv` wrappers, profiling changes to the JS network stack, or writing clean maintainable code that captures complex business logic.

We’re skeptics at Philo – in general, we prefer “boring and battle tested” over “shiny and nascent.” With that said, we also try to use the best tool for the job, and when that tool does not yet exist, we’re not opposed to building it (or contributing to the projects that are building it). Kotlin Multiplatform falls solidly into the second category, and to make it work for our use-case we need to be unafraid of tackling seemingly insurmountable problems. We’re actively working on a number of open source projects to improve the ecosystem and make it usable for all.

Philo engineers own what they build from start to finish and are passionate about continuously delivering delightful features to a huge user base. If you’re a Kotlin hacker who cares deeply about writing quality code and using the latest tools & technologies to push the envelope of what’s possible, we would love to talk to you!

A strong candidate is:

8+ years of experience working on frontend app development
Extremely proficient in Kotlin
Deeply experienced with structured concurrency and coroutines
Experienced with Redux/MVI-like patterns
Familiar with the Android ecosystem, including feature sets and best practices across devices and operating system versions
Familiar with web technologies, and able to proficiently write and debug JS-based applications
Familiar with Swift, Objective-C, and the Apple ecosystem

Nice to have:

A good instinct for product design and UX. Able to take mocks and bring them to life
Experience with embedded programming and/or working on highly resourced constrained devices
Experience with video playback
Experience with GraphQL-based APIs

Interview Process

Step 1: Back-to-Back Calls. A Recruiter Call to learn more about the role and Philo, then an Engineering Call with a KMP Engineer to learn more about your technical background, and to tell you more about our codebase.

Step 2: Technical Screen. For this role, the technical screen will consist of a “take-home” exercise to be completed in Kotlin. The exercise will involve concurrency and socket programming. Note that if you are the maintainer of a major open source project, this step may be skipped at the discretion of the hiring manager.

Step 3: Virtual Onsite. This will consist of five interviews: (1) A demo of our product; (2) a paired programming session where we fix bugs and improve the exercise you submitted during the technical screener; (3) a product-focused interview with a member of our product team; (4); a technical architecture interview that will involve some software design discussions; (5) a soft skills interview.

Step 4: Follow Up Call with Hiring Manager. The hiring manager will collect feedback about the process, and cover any follow ups that interviewers had throughout the rest of the process.
