  • London
  • fulltime

The role: 

Based in London and working in a feature team, you’ll be helping us build our Android app. We have users sending money from 50 countries to over 150 countries – and we’re expanding. The work is varied, from creating new products and features to improving existing functionality, we strive to build a better customer experience and a better codebase. This is real growth at pace.  

We use a modern stack – Kotlin, RxJava, Retrofit, Dagger – and modern tools – CI, TDD, Agile – to get the job done. 

Your responsibilities: 

  • Writing great code. We understand code is read more than it’s written, better off tested and maintainability is a must. 
  • Helping shape what we build. You’ll be working closely with product owners, designers and other engineers to design and refine our work. We work as a team and your input is key. 
  • Owning delivery. We’re obsessed with shipping value; you’ll own work beyond just a pull request. You’ll care about bugs, scalability, uptime and other non-functional requirements. 
  • Growing together. You’ll review others' work and happily seek feedback on yours to ensure we build a better codebase and sharpen each other's skills. 

What we are looking for: 

  • A skilled Engineer. 5+ years' experience of building native Android apps. 
  • Keen on Kotlin. You’re into immutability, non-nullability and all the other advances it brings over Java. 
  • Works across the whole app. From REST calls and view layouts, to build processes and test cases. 
  • Happy in the Clouds. Our Cloud Native platform is hosted in AWS and Azure. You’ll be comfortable working with a system that supports users from around the world, at scale. 
  • Well-principled. Especially in the craft of Software Engineering – you will understand deeply: modularity, testability, extensibility, scalability and other –ilities. 
  • Bias for action. You see a problem, you fix a problem. You get buy in for your solutions and keep tickets moving. We’re always looking for ways to ship at pace.  
  • Growth mindset. A willingness to use your skills and experience to mentor less-experienced engineers. A desire to learn from others and make yourself better every day. 
  • Agile outlook. You need to be excited about working in a fast-changing environment. Products, tools, frameworks and processes change, we evolve and take the best bits with us. The teams drive the evolution.
