  • Professional hands-on experience and working knowledge in designing a mobile experience for variable screen sizes in variable versions of Android.
  • Strong knowledge of Android SDK, Android UI design principles, patterns, and best practices
  • Fantastic knowledge of the open-source Android ecosystem and the libraries available for common tasks and benchmarking and optimisation.
  • Proficient in Google's Android design principles, interface guidelines and code versioning tools, such as Git.

And it’s why we especially welcome applications from under-represented groups.

We’re disability confident. So if you’d like reasonable adjustments to be made to our recruitment processes, just let us know.

We’re creating an organisation that attracts, retains and develops the best talent in the industry, and one that openly embraces diversity too.
