Principal Android Developer London, W2 £Excellent Salary Plus Pension, Healthcare


Principal Android Developer 
London, W2 
£Excellent Salary Plus Pension, Healthcare 

On a mission to connect, inform and empower people across the globe, our client is building the world’s most sophisticated cloud storage platform. They’re now looking for a Principal Android Developer to help drive their goals and achieve excellent results. 

Based in state-of-the-art offices in Central London, you will find that our client is located in an iconic building within easy reach of the Bakerloo line and surrounded by creative organisations and global corporations. 

Within the offices themselves, you’ll discover a games room and a fully stocked chocolate fridge so as soon as you feel that concentration drop you can step away, stock up on sugar and ping pong wins and display your pool supremacy to all who will take you on. 

As the Principal Android Developer, you’ll join a fast-moving development environment where your primary function will be to build and maintain two of our client’s major software offerings as they are developed on the Android platform. 

You’ll join the Mobile and Desktop Team which is Agile from top to bottom (like the rest of the company) and will take part in planning sessions, standups and retros. You’ll collaborate and pair with other team members and will learn new skills as well as imparting yours through mentoring. 

Big data is part of everyday life for our client, it’s not just a concept and the solutions created are for a dynamic and fast-paced market. 

Every month new features are added to our client’s platform which brings large numbers of new customers and resellers to their self-hosted multi-petabyte storage cloud. This makes for a fluid environment which requires people who are focused on getting results and solving problems and don’t get bogged down in the petty and mundane. 

What Else Will Your Role Involve? 

- Delivering high quality products and clean code 
- Following best practice 
- Ensuring your code is bug-free through automated testing and high code coverage 
- Working hand-in-hand with QA to define new features before final release 
- Sharing knowledge with members of your team 
- Collaborating with other teams to support new product development and product improvements 
- Enhancing the user experience through collaboration with the UX team 

Interested? If so, you will need: 

- At least seven years’ experience in a technical role 
- At a minimum, three years’ experience with native Android development 
- At least three years’ experience consuming RESTful web services 
- Code profiling, diagnostics, troubleshooting and performance optimisation experience 
- Experience of working in Agile development environments 
- Knowledge of Chromecast, video codecs, or other related technologies 
- A degree in Computer Science (or similar qualifications and experience) 

Detail-oriented with a focus on quality and accuracy, the ideal Principal Android Developer may also have experience of writing and designing RESTful APIs and a working knowledge of iOS development. However, these are not essential requirements.

This vacancy is being advertised by Webrecruit. The services advertised by Webrecruit are those of an Employment Agency.
