As the tech lead of our Android app, you will learn and adapt quickly, balancing speed and agility to deliver meaningful features for our users. The app uses Kotlin, Android Jetpack, unidirectional data flows, dependency injection, reactive programming, unit tests, end to end tests, and the robot pattern. You don't have to know all of these patterns and libraries, but you'll be using them daily. Technical skills aren't everything at Geneva; we value kind people who can work well on a team.
On a daily basis, you will:
- Build a cutting edge Android app that brings people together and sets a new standard for mobile communication.
- Write clear, maintainable code that will scale across a number of projects and distributed development teams.
- Collaborate closely with engineers, designers, and product managers.
- Work in an environment where vision and strategy exists but still has plenty of room to be shaped.
- Be a valued member of an autonomous and cross-functional team.
