Android Mobile Developer | Responsibilities:

You’re a professional software developer. You know computer science regardless of whether you learned it academically, professionally, or by hacking on your own. You explore the breadth of the system and the landscape of available technologies. At the same time, you maintain a laser focus on producing customer value. You crave feedback from your peers and your users. You continually form hypotheses and seek to validate or invalidate them in production by shipping small changes frequently. Your teamwork displays an appreciation for both the spirit and the letter of Agile process. You work hard, and you continually seek ways to work smarter. You gush with optimism without allowing blind spots to prevent you from seeing risks. You avoid the temptation to plagiarize this paragraph as your cover letter. You realize that nobody achieves these ideals, but you try yourself anyway.

  • Android (Android Services, Broadcast Receiver, and Android Activity Lifecycle)

  • Continuous Integration (Jenkins)
  • SQL, the ability to dig into data
  • Testing tools (JUnit, Robotium)
