Frontdoor Android Engineer in Portland, Oregon
Streem is a company with a simple mission: make the world’s expertise more accessible. We believe that as quickly as you can hail a ride with your phone, you should be able to have a plumber check out your leaky faucet. We are building a platform for experts to provide remote, on-demand services to their customers, saving money and time in traffic, and providing a better overall experience for both parties.
But Streem goes a step further. By bringing together some of the latest technologies in a convenient and easy to use app, we are revolutionizing communication beyond just normal remote video. Using Augmented Reality, now the plumber can literally reach out and point at the problem area, instead of trying to explain with just words. They can also take remote measurements, because Streem is capturing depth information during the call. Using Machine Learning and Image Recognition, we can identify products, extract model/serial numbers, recognize problems situations, and more, making the professional even more efficient than if they were onsite.
Does this sound like a product and mission you want to be a part of? If so, keep reading. Streem is looking for the best people to join our highly skilled team of highly skilled engineers, and we hope that is you!

About The Company
Streem started like many startups - out of pure passion and necessity. Co-Founders, Ryan (CEO) and Sean (CTO), began building the business nights and weekends in 2017. Both had several experiences needing a product like Streem, and were sick and tired of all the inefficiencies in the home services market. Since then, we've been growing the product and the team to meet our high goals and expectations, both from ourselves and our customers.
Streem has been nominated for (and won) a handful of awards in its short life time:
Rated #2 Hottest Tech Startup Globally in 2019 by Crunchbase
Best App award at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain (winner)
OEN Game Changer Award (winner)
TAO Startup of the Year, Pre-Revenue (finalist)
Best Consumer App, Augmented World Expo (finalist)

Week-long 10% time. Once a quarter, our whole team sets aside the strategic roadmap and spends a week on whatever we each think is important. Doing this together encourages big ideas and cross-department team-ups, and it’s a lot of fun.
Enjoy your work life; keep your home life. We’ve got a fun office with free snacks, cold brew, and beer on tap for our Demo Day Fridays. Streemers spend time together in a lunch-hour book club and while supporting our neighborhood’s wealth of great restaurants and cart pods. At the end of the day, we go home. Our co-founders both have young children and lead by example through avoiding crunch and exercising our unlimited PTO policy.
