We’re hiring a Staff or Principal Engineer – Android

Many of our teams need expertise for Android, and we’re looking for experienced engineers with such backgrounds. You won’t be siloed just to Android. You’ll have access to and be encouraged to commit to any repo across the company, we’ll expect you to grow your skills in any direction that both fits your interests and the needs of the business, and over time you can rotate through various cross-functional teams.

 

What you’ll be doing

  • Write high quality, well architected, modular code which is easy to read and maintain.
  • Ensure your code and the application as a whole have excellent automated test coverage.
  • Ensure the app has a clean, simple and robust architecture to enable various teams to easily contribute code.
  • Ensure the build and test pipelines are fast and stable.
  • Provide high quality code reviews for your team and other contributors to the code base.
  • Lead by example and provide guidance and mentorship to other developers.
  • Provide technical insights to the Product Manager.
  • Work closely with designers to build great UI and a great user experience.
  • Undertake spikes, prototyping and R&D work to investigate feasibility and de-risk complex projects.
  • Write clear and comprehensive tech designs and test plans, and ensure work is broken down into bite sized chunks and accurately sized.
