Write Software at Gaia GPS
Product-Focused Software Engineers (Remote Work, iOS/Android/Web)
Help build the future of outdoor mapping at Gaia GPS.
We're looking to hire people who can be very product-focused - strong coders who can also do things like wireframe their own ideas, use analytics to drive decisions, and drive growth with ideas and execution. Right now, we perceive the most need for engineers who want to focus on front/middle-end mobile/web, but we'll consider any strong candidate.
This page is for mid- and senior-level hires. More junior candidates should apply as Software Engineer I.
