The OAN Careers

Software Developer (Mobile)
Toronto, Ontario, Canada


At The Open Application Network, we're on a mission to solve the unintended consequences of platform problems, and a major part of that mission is building open applications. As a Sr. Full Stack Developer, you'll play the crucial role of building that open app. As a part of the Engineering team, you'll be tackling interesting challenges and will be providing creative solutions to the team. Our teams are working at a fast pace, creating the specifications for the open application. Since developers are at the center of our ecosystem, for us to be successful, we need to build something to prove our purpose. This role will have a major impact on how applications are built at The OAN going forward. We're The Open Application Network, an alternative to current platforms that gives control, privacy, and ownership back to platform participants. We want participants to innovate freely and have full autonomy over their creations. We believe tomorrow's success stories won't be built on yesterday's platforms. And that's why, to us, open is better. At The Open Application Network we are looking for bright intelligent minds who will contribute in defining the future of technology. Being bold, taking risks and moving fast is in our DNA. Living on the cutting edge of technology, we come to work every day with unbounded enthusiasm for pushing the boundaries of what's possible with technology.


We are looking for people who have previous experience with building applications, and a knack for understanding technology, stacks and how the best products are built. You'll pick up our existing mock-ups and take them to the next level. With that in mind, here's an example of opportunities that you'll get in this role:

  • Write maintainable, testable and high performance software, which will have a massive impact on validation of our open protocol
  • Mentor and provide technical guidance to other developers, sharing knowledge as they grow along with you
  • Collaborate with product managers and our research team to build features, constantly iterating and experimenting to build a world class application
  • Define and design application components

Required Skills

  • Considerable experience building mobile applications, preferably in a product led company
  • Android or iOS native app development
  • Experience with Java/Kotlin and Swift
  • Experience shipping product as part of a cross-functional team
  • Experience managing people or mentoring junior developers considered an asset
  • Someone who is mission driven, and makes decisions that align with that mission

What we offer:

  • Robust benefits plan
  • $500/year health spending account
  • $1000/year professional development budget
  • Friday lunch, snacks, and coffee
