Android Developer

Are you keen on being in the forefront and have a great interest in all things Android? Wonderful, then we already have something in common! We are looking for an Android developer with a curious mind to solve fun and complex problems in our office in Stockholm. If you think this description fits you, be sure to send us your application!

The position

As an Android developer, you will join Viaplay with the mission to further develop and maintain our mobile apps, keep them best-in-class and the main entry point to Viaplay. You’ll be involved in the whole development lifecycle (definition, development, maintenance, etc.) and everyday work will consist of development, design, complexity assessment, test and deployment and much more. We thrive in using cutting edge technology, always keeping up to date and constantly challenging status quo.

You will join a kick-ass cross-functional team (client and backend development, QA, UI/UX, product management) and deliver engineering solutions aligned with technical and product long-term visions. The team delivers on clear goals based on our customer journey and are fully autonomous in how to create the best solutions to reach their goals. In other words, if you are into working in an innovative way and done with just delivering on Jira tickets all day - we have an offer you can’t refuse!  

The challenge ahead

You will work within an expanding organisation that strives for excellence by taking responsibility and pitching in where needed as a valued member of an autonomous, cross-functional team. We truly believe in the power of working together – where every team member has their own area of expertise but is open to learning new things, working on multiple technical platforms and lending a fresh pair of eyes to help their neighbour solve a problem. We take pride in being an inventive company and use bleeding edge technology where test driven development and continuous deployments are central in the deployment process. We do our best to create a relaxed atmosphere where we want everyone to feel at home and we hope that you will too.

What we are looking for

We think you’re currently working as a Mobile Developer with a focus on Android development. If you also have experience working on other technical platforms, such as iOS, Web, Backend etc., we would be blown away. Mainly we are looking for someone with their expertise within Android development, but at the same time someone that is open and willing to work in other technical domains. We would also like you to push forward internal development by sharing knowledge and keeping on top of the latest technologies.

Successful candidates also meet the following requirements:

  • Solid experience solving complex problems on the Android platform
  • Experience from building apps that are live on Google Play
  • Fluency in Java and the Android SDK
  • Commitment to CI, automation and other efficient workflow-oriented practices
  • Dedication to unit testing, code review and other quality-oriented practices

Bonus requirements that will make you stand out from the rest:

  • Experience from media, streaming or advertisement
  • Experience developing Android apps using Kotlin
  • Experience solving complex problems in an iOS environment
  • Experience working some Frontend magic using React.js or any other Javascript-based framework
  • Experience with Backend development using Node.js
  • Work-life experience of Java Backend development
