With the Mimo app, we've made it easy and fun for more than 15 million beginners to start coding – anytime, anywhere. But there's more to the app than entertainment or simplicity: using bite-size coding exercises and step-by-step programming projects, we're helping our learners form a habit of coding and get to measurable learning outcomes at their own pace. To help millions more get into coding and eventually become developers, we're looking for a Lead Android Developer.

If you, too, want to make coding accessible, this is your opportunity to shape the future of computer science education.

Your benefits

At Mimo, we’re remote-first, have flexible working hours, and there's no overtime. We have a small location in Vienna, Austria, but most of us are spread over the world. By joining Mimo, you'll work on an educational mission in a diverse, fun, and multicultural team with regular team activities like remote breakfasts, coffee breaks, and hack weeks, physical retreats, and many perks for your home office and personal or professional development.
