The team

Our team has a proven record in creating products that help people improve their lives. We share a passion for product development and a great user experience. We are a nice, small and international team, with a hard-working attitude, non-bureaucratic processes and open communication.

We work with a multidisciplinary product team and we build elegant user interfaces using an exciting tech stack of React Native for our iOS app and future Android app. We use modern JavaScript across our stack, from our node.js API to our React Native view layer and React-based internal tools.


The role

We are looking for an experienced Android Developer to join the team and lead the development of the Taxfix Android app. Since it’s a new project, you’ll get to make the calls on architecture, libraries, minSdkVersion, and so on. Interested in Kotlin? Sure! Let’s get that going.

We’re using React Native in the iOS app for the view layer. Don’t let that worry you, though, as a big part of the app is still a native iOS product. So, even though we’d want to keep using React Native for Android also, be aware that your Gradle, your RecyclerViews, your RxJava knowledge is as necessary as ever.

You will collaborate closely with a multidisciplinary team to define and ship the define and ship an app that will grow with the product.

You will implement custom UI components for our conversational interface - either native or hybrid.

You will be responsible for app distribution through Google Play.

You will do the Unit test, debug and optimise code for efficiency and performance.

Requirements

You share our passion for product development and user experience.

You can develop Android applications using Java (and/or Kotlin), Git, GitHub and TDD.

You’ve published one or more Android apps.

You’re interested in developing hybrid apps (e.g. React Native).

You’re confident about connecting Android applications to backend services.

You can design and define the architecture, libraries, minSdkVersion, etc.

You are able to work independently and own a project, but you also love team work!

You are pragmatic and work autonomously with a strong positive attitude and overcome challenges with passion.


Requirements:

You hold a permission to work in Germany.
