Don’t be a paranoid Android
If you’re an Android craftswoman (or man) and a curious communicator, we offer 100 % unlimited, high-end Android app development. Shortcut is a leading mobile innovation company spread across Stockholm, Oslo, Bergen, Copenhagen, Bucharest, and Tetovo. We’re a collection of around 200 brilliant minds made up of Developers, Designers, Architects, Software Engineers, and Project Managers. Together with our customers, we have succeeded in building digital tools used by millions every day. In the last 10 years, we have worked with customers such as Spotify, H&M, Apple, Vipps, Voi, Coop, and Securitas.
100 % high-end Android app development
You will be developing apps with custom components, complex layouts, L10N, animations, and other platform goodies. Various SDK versions don’t scare you, and neither does unit & UI testing.
Android specialist with great communication skills
To join our app corps, you know the ins and outs of Android architecture/lifecycle management. You care strongly about developing exquisite user experiences, you understand what mobile-first APIs look like and you are not afraid to talk shop with non-techie people. And oh: you also need to be fluent in English and Swedish.
What you’ll do
This is a role that will often include some consulting, which will require you to step up a bit, beyond "just coding". We don't intend to simply put you at a desk and hand you a list of tasks to deliver. We expect that you will happily engage with clients to understand their needs, and to present ideas and alternatives for future development. You have strong technical abilities, not only in performing development tasks, but also in mentoring others (both at clients and at Shortcut). You probably have some strong technical preferences about architectures, languages, and platforms, based on your experience; At the same time, you are always willing to explore other options, and are able to work with a team to find the best way forward in any situation.
You'll be part of a growing team, and one key aspect of this role is the important process of helping us build and grow a team of developers in the future. You’ll have the opportunity to grow into this role with us, collaborating with and mentoring new team members, and continuously helping us refine the ways that front-end and back-end development are done at Shortcut Sweden.
We are looking for someone who has:
- 10+ years of development experience
- Expert knowledge in Kotlin and Java
- Comfortable working according to agile methodologies, and following software engineering best practices
- Excellent communication skills, written and spoken, in both English and Swedish
- EU citizen, or already permitted to live and work in Sweden in some other way
In this role, you’ll work in a team of talented engineers and designers, and together figure out the best way forward for each client. Your clients will vary over time, and you’ll always have a say in what type of work you want to do next. We’re very flexible about where you work and what tools you use to get your job done.
At Shortcut we don't have strict hierarchies, but we do expect that the more experienced team members go out of their way to help those with less experience. The person who takes on this role can look forward to helping us grow our developer team in the future, as well as helping this team reach new heights and create engaging, empowering mobile experiences.
We encourage all who are qualified to apply, regardless of age, gender, disability, national or ethnic background ♥
