As a Senior Android Developer on our team, you will create one of a kind experiences using ARCore and serve as the primary technical leader for Ario Android products. You will have the opportunity to create world-class applications in the exciting, emerging field of augmented reality. We’re a growing startup, so we’re looking for someone that will take complete ownership of launching our Android initiatives and be a thought-leader in the augmented reality industry. Our preferred candidate will work out of our headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia where the waterfront meets business. It’s a wonderful location to live, work and play.


  • Develop and support high-quality, polished and reliable Android AR frameworks and applications
  • Work closely with designers to implement features and functionality
  • Implement engaging tools for AR at supervisor/team direction and client feedback
  • Design, build and maintain efficient, reusable and reliable code
  • Ensure the best possible performance, quality and responsiveness of applications
  • Identify bottlenecks and bugs, then devise solutions to address and mitigate these problems
  • Help maintain code quality, organization, automatization and integration

Minimum Qualifications

  • 3-5 years of native Android 3D graphics programming: OpenGL, importing models, setting up animations, customizing lighting and physically based rendering
  • 1+ year working with ARCore inside native Android applications
  • Some experience working with APIs; familiarization with sending authorization tokens and pulling data
  • Familiarity or capability to quickly learn Sceneform. Google recently released it, so recent experience with this is okay
  • Proven track record of writing structured, well-documented and maintainable code. Please provide code samples for review
  • Experience working with artists and creators

Preferred Qualifications

  • Those who can architect and handle end-to-end delivery of a complex Android project that involves ARCore + OpenGL/Sceneform
  • Experience packaging an existing Android codebase into a shareable library
  • Tech lead with experience mentoring junior devs. As we grow, you'll likely work with new hires and contracting resources; you'll need to know how to break up a complicated engineering task into sections and delegate aspects

What Will Make You Successful at Ario?

You have a passion for emerging technology. You’re infinitely curious. You have a sense of humor; we all love a good laugh. You believe in the potential in everyone. You like to collaborate and value a work culture where great ideas can come from anyone.


We’re located in downtown Norfolk, VA, with 16th floor views of the Norfolk Harbor, plenty of windows and lots of sunlight. Located steps from the Norfolk Tide Light Rail, you’ll find coming and going from our headquarters easy, but if you prefer to drive, we provide paid parking onsite. Our location is very walkable to countless restaurants and venues. We want you to be comfortable and have the tools you need to succeed. We’ll hook you up with a brand new Macbook or PC and provide you with one of those nifty standing desks (if you’d like). We want you to be healthy and happy. We offer health insurance options (and we’ll even pay for part of it!), a gym membership and 3 weeks off to start. Through the co-working space we participate in, you’ll have access to a podcast booth, showers, local fresh-brewed coffee, a wellness/ mother’s room and more.
