Openings
Would you like to play a significant role in helping the world return to normalcy?

The economy has collapsed due to blanket stay-at-home orders, which are necessary because COVID-19 transmits prior to exhibiting symptoms. As detailed by Bill Gates, one important requirement for returning to work is contact tracing. A team led by Carnegie Mellon University professor Po-Shen Loh (an internationally distinguished mathematician) has built the first (and only) anonymous contact tracing app officially released for both Android and iOS which collects no personal information: no GPS, phone number, name, email address, etc.: NOVID (https://www.novid.org). It is also the first to feature a combination of Bluetooth and ultrasound to deliver the necessary accuracy for this task, circumventing flaws that cripple other apps' methods.

Interest in NOVID is rapidly increasing, and there are immediately available opportunities to join the team. NOVID is hiring experienced Android and iOS developers amongst others who wish to commit significant time to this mission, and to make history. If interested, please fill out the appropriate application below.

Android Engineer
Pittsburgh, PA; Remote

NOVID is looking for exceptional full-time Android Engineers. Android Engineers will implement robust Bluetooth and ultrasonic protocols that enable inter-device communication through secured channels. Engineers will be responsible for identifying and fixing stability issues with existing protocols, as well as refactoring and redesigning them to be more manageable and reliable. Android Engineers will work with both the iOS and Android engineering teams to implement, test, and fix the core technology of NOVID. Occasionally, engineers will also implement user interface designs, which may influence or be influenced by the underlying mechanics of the NOVID protocol.

An ideal candidate will:

  1. Design stable Android Background Services that stay alive no matter what.
  2. Oversee mobile device Bluetooth protocol design, implementation, and testing.
  3. Build Android applications to have reliable, high interoperability with iOS devices running complementary services.
  4. Ship products on tight timelines, with daily patches in response to user feedback.
  5. Excellent communication skills, attention to detail, willingness to contribute ideas to initiatives outside of their domain of expertise.

Nice to haves:

  1. Degrees in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or similar.
  2. Front-end engineering experience, specifically with constrained/relative layout systems.
  3. Track record of successful product launches, specifically in the IoT sector.
