You'll have expert knowledge of:

We're also looking for experience with:
  • Common Android libraries such as Retrofit, Room, Glide, and Dagger.
  • Testing Android apps with unit tests and UI tests
  • Continuous Integration and source control
  • Implementing security best practices for safeguarding data on a mobile device
Benefits

  • Equity in a high growth startup backed by the investors of Spotify and Slack.
  • Autonomy - you decide how to achieve your best work.
  • Trips across Europe - for one week every three months we collaborate in person, explore new solutions and have fun. So far we’ve stayed in Nice, Toulouse, Brussels, Lisbon and Barcelona. We'll resume these when safe following COVID.
