  • Global Trading / Broking Firm | located in CBD | better than an FS provider :)
  • A currently ongoing greenfield project coding a trading app
  • Get to work alongside an intelligent & potent team dev team
There's an Android mobile application project with an immediate start which is NOT for the faint hearted. This WILL be a challenge where you'll need to explore solutions & architecture, not just the coding & delivery of features!

An urgent requirement for a Senior Android Mobile Developer has arisen to help develop a greenfield project.

You'll be working in a team of 4-ish, split equally across the Android & iOS space whilst liaising with the rear-end dev's to draw out that important data.

Expect to work closely and confirm the best approaches to each requirement. It's not all handed on a silver platter either, explore & liaise to affirm the business requirements so there'll be enough stakeholder engagement to get on with too.

You'll be reporting to a Development Manager and occasionally the Head of IT, who'll both be taking a keen and personal interest. Easy going and relaxed, there'll be no micromanaging and you'll have flexible working. Working from home is currently in effect but generally the teams are in office.

The aim is to simply deliver an 'awesome' trading platform experience for the firms huge client/user base.

Financial Markets knowledge helps, but overall we're looking for someone who is technically gifted and isn't afraid to get stuck in!

1. Attitude, attitude, attitude', a thirst for learning & being a great people person is more important than lacking in one particular tech skill
2. Excellent dev experience in Native Android Java Mobile (Kotlin) inc. coroutines
3. Experience using a dependency injection framework e.g. Dagger2, Retrofit, Gson, Mockk
4. Best practice knowledge in development patterns e.g. latest MVVM & applying Clean Architecture principles
5. Experience using Jetpack components e.g. Navigation components, Android Lifecycle component(ViewModel, LiveData), Biometric API
6. Work using utilities such as LeakCanary & Gander
7. Android dev experience, in a real-time, multi-threaded environment
8. Manage full life-cycle of an Android app eg design → dev → test → release
9. Work collaboratively with business stakeholders to take pre-wireframe concepts through to implementation
10. Experience in a collaborative cross functional Agile team environment
11. Work collaboratively with API / Agile development team
12. Strong grasp of security principles and how they apply to web apps

13. Experience using RxJava/RxJava2
14. Prototyping experience with Axure or similar products
15. Experience with Android Studio, Zeplin, Genymotion or Vysor
16. Comfortable with GIT, Jira, or TFS
17. Knowledge of test automation for Android app development
18. Knowledge of implementing push notifications within Android apps
19. Experience developing real time transactional apps

Summary: Work alongside other fantastic devs where this diverse challenge will require an intuitive developer to crunch all aspects; NOT just the coding.
