Senior Android Developer

full-time Pupil London

Are you looking to make your mark on a remarkable new product? One that will potentially be seen and experienced by millions of users? Are you someone that would love to work at the bleeding edge of spatial technology and craft immersive experiences on a truly innovative platform?

We’re looking for an Android Developer to join our small cross-functional engineering team and be part of a fast-growing, fully funded startup. We’re after someone enthusiastic, passionate about technology and loves getting features into production.

Now is an exciting time to join us in a disruptive, technology focused business with big ambitions for the next 12 months.

You will be working on an app used by Pupil’s Digital Surveyors to capture information about interior spaces. Its primary purpose is to interface with a hardware device, sending commands and downloading data for later upload to our back-end systems. We get fast feedback from our users, most of whom are as passionate about the app as its developers.

  • Almost entirely written in Java, but with a significant C++ layer to work with the hardware device.
  • We use the MVP pattern throughout, with RxJava and a lightweight wrapper around SQLite.
  • Designed to work offline first from the outset.
  • A sprout of Kotlin that we’re keen to grow.

You’re someone who is smart, motivated, organised and gets things done. You have ideas about everything we do and you’re not afraid to offer respectful, constructive criticism.

You have:

  • Proven experience building and releasing Android apps
  • Examples of products that you have personally helped to build and have been shipped to production
  • Ambition and a hunger for growth and development
  • Experience writing web applications

You ideally have:

  • Experience of writing C++ using the NDK
