The Crown Is Yours

As a Senior Lead Software Engineer you will be part of a cross-functional native team, working closely with product designers, product managers, and QA teams to guide our iOS and Android development teams and contribute significantly to our product roadmap. This isn’t just a technical role. You’ll be working with various teams, steering our business strategies, and ingeniously addressing all of our scaling issues.

  • Take ownership for the design, development, maintenance, testing strategy, and operations of iOS and Android apps written primarily in Swift and Kotlin, with SQLite databases and other NoSQL solutions hosted in the cloud.

  • Collaborate with business leads across the organization to define milestones and deliveries on very short time frames for new features to be added to existing systems.

  • Be the primary voice for the engineering organization on the systems your team owns.

  • Lead your team in design sessions and ensure your team delivers high-quality work that aligns with DraftKings' engineering strategy.

  • Have an opportunity to work on a complex problem on your own, and provide the POC (proof of concept) to the team.

What you’ll bring

  • Ideally, you have experience as the ‘expert’ on a development team where you were responsible for planning, delivering, and managing key iOS and Android features.

  • Solid understanding and experience with native Android development and native iOS development.

  • Proficient in at least one programming language for Android development such as Kotlin.

  • Proficient in at least one programming language for iOS development such as Swift.

  • You have strong relational database skills using technologies like SQLite or other NoSQL solutions.

  • Familiarity with cloud services and infrastructure, particularly those relevant to mobile development.

  • You also have the ability to write automated comprehensive test suites at all levels of the architecture.

  • Prior experience helping scale a rapidly growing company is a plus.

  • Excellent troubleshooting skills, real-time decision-making, and responsiveness to problem-solving that prioritizes the customer experience first.
