What would you get to do?
As an Android Developer your main responsibility is to work on our Tori native Android application with Kotlin and add exciting new features. You will contribute to the development of our own frameworks (UI, network, messaging) to deliver product specific functionality and also to the specification of REST APIs for Mobile apps. You will work in a cross-functional team with other mobile developers, UX designers, backend developers and business owners.
Part of your daily work is optimisation and performance analysis of Kotlin code. Testability is always in your mind, when designing new features. You will create unit and integration tests with code coverage. Being curious is one of our values, so we really want to encourage you to be creative and experiment with new solutions, of course with a pragmatic and committed mindset to the code quality and maintainability.

You have a creative problem-solver mindset and you're open-minded and curious towards other platforms and services. You know what makes a good REST API for mobile apps and have a good understanding on the Android platform and how to write great UI code.
