Job description: Senior Level Android Developer £55-£70k Woking
Android Developer – Greenfield project, gain iOS knowledge within the role.
We are looking for talented Android developers who get excited about technology, love learning new skills and want to work for a company where building great software is a primary focus of the business. This is an opportunity to work for a progressive forward thinking company where the products that the Development team build are essential to the success of the company. You will be working on new and interesting projects and gain exposure to the latest technologies. You will be working as a developer in one of our small, self-organising, cross functional teams in a place that knows the application of agile means far more than just putting the word Scrum in the title of meetings. We are serious about the application of Scrum and if you come and work for us you will gain exposure to working in a mature agile environment. Each team handles all aspects of delivery for the project they are working on. Along with the rest of the team you will be responsible for design, architecture and writing code for all areas of the product whether it be front end, server side, database or even deployment and build infrastructure. If you are a genius coder and want to stay focused on technology we aren’t going to insist that you climb the management ladder to advance your career, we want you to be happy and we will reward you for doing what you do best. On the other hand if your future ambitions lie in management or elsewhere we will see how we can help with those too. You won’t find a stuffy inflexible corporate environment or approach, we like to be more relaxed and have fun while we work, however we are very serious about delivering quality products and doing things well.
