About the role

OneSignal’s 15 first-party Mobile and Web SDKs are installed into nearly 100,000 websites and applications that reach 900 Million unique users a month.

Our SDKs must remain easy to install, work alongside other services, and consistently improve as we add new features. This is no small feat, but the effort is well worth it: Our clients rave about the quality, documentation, and ease of use of our service.

We’re looking for a skilled developer to help us build upon and maintain SDKs on our supported Web-based platforms. The right candidate must have the skill and confidence to learn new programming languages, programming techniques, and fearlessly troubleshoot bugs in mobile devices and web browsers.

What You’ll Do:

  • Write code in JavaScript/TypeScript and PHP for our Web, WordPress, React Native, and Cordova SDKs
  • Additionally writing SDK bindings for Android, iOS and other platforms supported by OneSignal
  • Write high quality code in previously unfamiliar programming languages
  • Create and maintain open source SDKs on GitHub used by hundreds of thousands of developers
  • Be the voice-of-the-developer for the Web developer community

Skills and Experience:

  • Has 5+ years of experience in JavaScript/TypeScript
  • Strong development skills: software development experience in one or more general purpose programming languages (bonus points for Rust)
  • Experience collaborating on a library, SDK, compiler, build/test tool or similar developer-facing software project
  • Experience interacting with RESTful and RPC APIs
  • Enjoys diving deep to find solutions to tricky bugs
  • Enjoys interacting with a developer ecosystem and is experienced in leveraging empathy for making better developer products
  • Gets excited about the opportunity to join a small but fast growing startup company
  • Experience with Android, iOS, and other mobile platforms is a bonus, but not required

Why you should join OneSignal

OneSignal is available on every platform and development environment, letting content creators focus on quality user engagement instead of complex implementation.
