Urgent Opening for Android / Flutter Developer
As a Lead Mobile Developer at funda, you’re not shy about rolling up your sleeves and pitching in when the need arises. You are a highly experienced and strategic manager who can mentor a team of bright mobile developers, but while you’re getting the most out of your team, the motivated Engineer within you is getting directly involved in the product and driving our Mobile (Android / iOS / Web Responsive) engineering.
To offer the best mobile consumer experience for our millions of visitors we need a good architecture and robust code. Therefore, we need someone with a focus on software development and architecture best practices in development, testing and provisioning of our apps and website in the Android and iOS platforms, as well as around owning and developing different APIs that provide the apps with data. As an experienced cross-disciplinary professional (both native development and back-end development experience) you ensure that our mobile strategy is continuously optimized, while balancing code quality and tech debt and aligning this with different development teams to ensure the website and apps have feature parity.
We believe that if you limit an Engineer’s activities to management alone, he/she will lose that essential technical focus. That’s why, as a Lead Mobile Developer at funda, you’re not a full-time manager. You’ll stay up to date in your field and contribute to developments on the platform.
This is a new role within funda. We’re transitioning in feature parity, which means we want a similar experience between mobile and web. Technically speaking, there’s a lot of work to be done. We know that it will be quite a challenge. But you love a good challenge, don’t you?
You will manage a team of 4 Engineers, from juniors to seniors. It’s your job to mentor them in a collaborative way, helping them get the best out of themselves and each other.
You excel in mobile development. But you have great social skills, too, which will come in handy as you manage a team of Engineers that report directly to you. You have loads of experience in development and have managed a team before.
Some other things that will make you ideal for this role:
You have approximately 10 years of experience as an engineer, of which at least 5 years in a regular position as a (tech) lead
Experience with back-end development, specifically in the development of gateway APIs/BFF that service mobile apps
Experience with iOS and/or Android mobile app development
Deep understanding of mobile client architecture
Good knowledge of OOP principles
Strong Swift, Kotlin and Java.
We would be extra happy if you have experience with:
C# and .NET
Writing cross-platform hybrid mobile applications (e.g. React Native, Flutter, Xamarin or Cordova)
Location-based and map-centric mobile applications and their associated SDKs
We prefer applications from EU/EEA citizens, who do not require a permit to work in the Netherlands.
