Feel like you can live up to the title Android Software Engineer at a startup? Doubletwist has an opening for the post. Call goes out to Software Engineers by training. The fact that Doubletwist is a stratup should not make you assume its a less demanding job. DoubleTwist is funded by the same guys who funded Skype, Spotify and Facebook, and they aim to build an open media platform, something like itunes but way better, ensuring seamless use of media between all your devices. That calls for a thinker.

The engineers will be tasked to assist in system architecture, design and implementation of the said system. The job will involve coding, documentation, test plans building, performing code reviews, debugging software, design input and project roll-out. Doubletwist guys are looking for a fast learner in this as its demanding.
