Senior Android Developer

Are you a Senior Android Developer who wants to work with a scale-up on a digital entertainment app?

Are you looking to work somewhere you’re part of a team, who takes pride in working together?

Does working within a team who are straightforward, constantly challenge themselves, and are constantly learning with a genuine love for what they’re creating appeal?

The Role

We are WOLF, a fast-growing, community-oriented audio entertainment app for both Android and iOS. We’re currently growing and expanding the team and we need someone to join us and strengthen our Android Development team.

You’ll be joining an established team of Android Engineers, implementing new features, and maintaining existing codebase. You’ll develop, improve and innovate on our Android app, writing clean, maintainable, and extendable code.

You’ll collaborate alongside Server and Client developers, Project Managers, Product Owners, Designers, QA and external beta testers and provide insight to the technical and behavioural direction of the products.

As a Senior Developer, you’ll provide guidance to other members of the team and will have the following skills and experience:

  • Be self-motivated, like to explore and organize your code
  • Have a solid background in Android SDK Development using Android Studio in Kotlin
  • Experience with SCM tools (preferably git)
  • Work with Android Architecture Components like LiveData, Room, and ViewModel
  • Experience with Coroutines and Flows
  • Experience with Dependency Injection (preferably Dagger2)
  • Be familiar with Material Design guidelines
  • Experience working in a team with code reviews and pair programming
  • Experience with fine tuning third party libraries in a complex UX ecosystem
  • Think like a team member, not a code-monkey

If you’ve got experience with Jetpack Compose, NDK, Unit Testing, TDD, BDD and/or automated UI testing, that would be a bonus!

Entertainment is how we stand out, built on a foundation of friendship, community, and supporting emerging talent.

Festivals are a place where everyone can be their true self and it’s no different here at The World’s Online Festival. At WOLF, everyone is appreciated equally for being themselves. It’s even built into our Brand Values! We’re creating a work environment that is truly representative of our diverse society, where every colleague feels respected and is able to give their best when at work. And when we have happy employees, we can then deliver the best experience to our users.
