Job Title: Android Developer

Location: London, Walking distance from London Bridge

We are working with an exciting client based near London Bridge that is looking for an Android developer to join their mobile team, continue development of the SDK that allows their customers to use their services within their apps, and maintain the public app store release. The role also involves building bespoke custom apps that use their SDK, and occasionally working on greenfield R&D projects.

About the role

Day to day, you’ll usually be working from our friendly London based office with 2-3 other developers working on the project. The team is mostly self-organising with a flat-ish management structure, with regular syncs and good communication processes to ensure nobody gets stuck. There is steering from the leadership team when needed, but other than that, we should be able to trust whoever’s working on something to do things well.
This is a fantastic opportunity to develop technical and business skills in a fast growing startup and to exchange knowledge and skills with a passionate and experienced team.
