Employment Type

Full time

Volley is the world leader in voice entertainment across Mobile Devices, Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Our voice apps are world-class and attract millions of users every month. We’re a 55-person team based in San Francisco.


We’ve created several of the top experiences for voice-controlled devices, including:

Song Quiz - a name-that-tune music trivia game

Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? - a quiz game to test your elementary-level knowledge

Bedtime Stories - a soothing, narrated skill to help you fall asleep


We believe voice control will be the main way people access entertainment in their bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and cars, and our goal is to build a destination for interactive audio entertainment, as Netflix did for television.


What you’ll do

  • Report directly to the VP of Engineering and become a key technical leader within the company
  • Lead Volley's mobile teams across multiple products as you build and scale to millions of users
  • Work with our tech leads to integrate Kotlin Multiplatform in Volley's mobile games
  • Head up R&D efforts across nascent platforms and new form-factors
  • Manage a varied product roadmap while prioritizing the wellness and work-life balance of your team
  • Collaborate with our in-house recruiter to manage Volley's talent pipeline and grow the team

Stuff you may have done before

  • Built top-notch native iOS or Android applications
  • Managed a high-performance engineering team, or you are ready to make the move from tech lead to engineering manager
  • Worked with Kotlin Multiplatform for Mobile
  • Created products for Smart TV's or Android Auto
  • Worked with audio, voice, or other emerging technologies

Our stack

  • Kotlin Multiplatform
  • Kotlin & Jetpack Compose (Android)
  • Swift and SnapKit (iOS)
  • Firebase

At Volley, we recognize the importance of work-life balance. We offer a flexible, hybrid work-from-home and in-office work model. We also offer 4 weeks of paid time off (with an enforced 2-week minimum!).


Volley believes in an inclusive workplace and is committed to building a team from a variety of backgrounds. We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive the other benefits and privileges of employment.


We’re a small but quickly growing team that truly enjoys working together. We love coming together over Zoom happy hours, the funny and strange in Slack #random, and occasional karaoke sessions in our brand new Hayes Valley office. If this sounds like fun (we promise it is), get in touch!


Underrepresented candidates, and candidates from nontraditional backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply!
