You will need:

  • Experience using Git and working with Google Play Console for app updates
  • Experience supporting a large variety of Android devices and using testing tools such as Mockito and JUnit
  • Current and detailed knowledge of the capabilities of different Android API levels
  • Champion the voice of the user while collaborating with other engineers
  • Demonstrable experience of working with and testing against backend REST APIs
  • A disciplined approach to development, testing, documentation and code structure in a team environment
  • Strong interpersonal skills; able to establish and maintain a close working relationship with product, design, backend and frontend teams
  • A proponent of strong collaborative software engineering techniques and methods: agile development, continuous delivery, code review or pairing, unit testing, refactoring and related approaches
  • Demonstrable passion for technology (e.g. personal projects, open-source involvement) while using their problem-solving capabilities to deliver solutions utilizing a top-end engineering approach
