We are looking for strong candidates that have interest in helping us get there and building great products along the way. If you feel like one of these people, our office in Cologne is hiring for the position of a Senior Android Engineer.
What you’ll do in this role:
You’ll shape the core experience of merchants and consumers who are using Android Apps on a daily basis.
Within the first few weeks, you'll dive into the code and learn how to create clean, composable components in our codebase. You'll use this knowledge to start developing and refining features. You'll learn how we write tests, how we manage Bluetooth communication, and how we keep performance tip-top.
In the first three months, you'll develop major features that impact our merchant base. You'll work closely with the product and design team to build features that are maintainable, usable, and beautiful. You'll help us re-think problems we've solved before in a different way as requirements evolve.
By the end of your first year, you'll be knowledgeable about our complex problem domain, as well as its implications in the interface and in the backend – and how to manage it in a clean way. You'll have launched numerous features in our Android Apps as well as in the Android SDK.
You will be great for this position if:
You're familiar with Java and the Android framework (knowledge of command line is a plus). You have basics knowledge about testing.
You are curious about Kotlin or even better have already worked with it.
You strive for clean code, but also know how to make your "shortcuts" easy to delete in a crunch.
You're not afraid to use Google or ask for help when something is beyond your grasp.
Technology excites you and you strive to learn something new on a daily basis!
