About the role

About us:

RevenueCat makes building, analyzing, and growing mobile subscriptions easy. We launched as part of Y Combinator's summer 2018 batch and today are handling more than $1.5B of in-app purchases annually across thousands of apps.

We are a mission driven, remote-first company that is building the standard for mobile subscription infrastructure. Top apps like VSCO, Notion, and ClassDojo count on RevenueCat to power their subscriptions at scale.

Our 50 team members (and growing!) are located all over the world, from San Francisco to Madrid to Taipei. We're a close-knit, product-driven team, and we strive to live our core values: Customer Obsession, Always Be Shipping, Own It, and Balance.

We’re looking for a Senior SDK engineer to work on our open source SDKs and automations.

Our CoreSDK team focuses on making our SDKs easy to use, well-tested and robust, and ensures they can be updated often. You’ll contribute to our iOS, Android, Flutter, React-Native, Cordova/Capacitor/Ionic and Unity SDKs, with code written in Swift, Objective-C, Kotlin, Java, Dart, Typescript, C# and Ruby.

You’ll learn how each of the platforms work and work with modern technologies like SwiftUI, Swift Concurrency, Android Coroutines, Sound null safety in Dart, and CI/CD pipelines, with a strong emphasis in API design, testing and robustness.
