Job Description

We are looking for an intermediate or senior software developer to join our Android development team to help us create amazing mobile applications that are genuinely useful to businesses. 

Skills & Requirements

The ideal candidate will have the following characteristics:

What you know (technical know-how)

  • At least two years of professional software development experience (at least seven years for the senior developer position)
    • More experience is better. However, we don’t want someone who has been working in software for five years, but who really just has one year’s worth of experience repeated five times.
  • A history of developing real-world applications for Android
    • Projects you did in school or “Hello world” apps you wrote on weekends to get to know the platform don’t count; that’s just coding. We want someone who has designed, written, tested, released and maintained mobile software that is used by real people.
  • Competence with C# and Xamarin is preferred
    • We use Xamarin for our Android development, so previous experience with that technology and toolset means you can get up to speed faster.

Who you are (personal attitudes)

  • Humble
    • Not a prima donna. You are willing to do whatever needs to be done to get the project out the door, not just what you feel is your speciality.
    • Team player. You consider the needs of your colleagues, not just your own.
    • Honest. While you have the initiative to work independently, you ask for help when it’s needed.
    • Confident. You are willing to admit you don’t know it all and eager to learn from others.
  • Light-hearted
    • You know that being professional doesn’t mean being formal or stoic. You can be serious when the situation calls for it, but your preferred mode is goofy.
    • You have a healthy sense of humour, including the ability to laugh at yourself.
  • Pragmatic
    • Finisher. When the project is no longer fun, you can buckle down and “git ‘er done”. [Hey – that rhymes!]
    • Engineer, not a scientist. You realize that a “good enough” solution that takes 2 hours is better than a “perfect” solution that takes 2 days.
  • Committed to growth
    • You are always working on your craft, wanting to learn better ways of doing things
    • You are willing to take junior programmers under your wing and launch them on their own careers of excellence
