The candidate

Todoist as a platform is constantly evolving. Every day we are working on improving the service, to add something new and useful to it, and to make it more stable, fast and convenient for users. It’s a challenging task, since official Todoist applications are available on 10+ platforms, and the number of integrations from independent developers is 50+ and growing.

  • Design, write and review application code
  • Have the leading role in planning the evolution of Todoist API
  • Take care of API for new features and API updates
  • Take care of deprecation policies (plan, communicate, enforce)
  • Implement the changes in close collaboration with our mobile development teams, partners and independent developers
  • Design and build integrations between Todoist and third-party platforms
  • Help other Todoist teams, third-party partners and independent developers to build services around Todoist API (Includes meeting with partners, responding to questions by email, support in GitHub & writing documentation.)
