We are looking for an Android Team Leader to bridge two worlds – technology and team management. If you’re an experienced specialist who is ready to work on the project and support a team of 7 Android Developers in their growth, we’ve got something for you!

Joining us you will be part of the Android competency team and part of a dedicated product team along with developers, QA’s, Scrum Master and the client itself.

Wondering what your division of responsibilities will look like? As a group leader, you allocate your time yourself according to your capabilities. On standard, you have 0.25 fte for topics that require commitment as a leader and 0.75 fte for commercial work.

  • Having current knowledge of the group’s perspective and needs
  • Supporting to select the next priorities for action in Delivery
  • Developing native Android applications for international clients
  • Communicating directly with our clients while helping them build great products
  • Working closely with Android, iOS and Web Developers, as well as QA Engineers, Scrum Masters and teams such as Delivery Leadership and the Planning Team
  • Participating in code review and pair programming will be also a part of your daily workflow

Requirements:

  • Proven commercial experience in Android mobile application development
  • At least 1  year of experience as a Team Leader or being open to step into the role
  • Solid knowledge of Kotlin and general Java environment

  • Ability to work in a very dynamic environment
  • Experience in direct business communication
  • Excellent spoken and written English and Polish language skills (at least B2 level)

Nice to have:

  • Active interest in mobile (Android) landscape
  • Experience in public speaking – we are an organization that likes to participate in various initiatives. It would be nice if you were part of that!
  • Ability to delegate and share tasks

Psst… You don’t match all of the items on our requirements list? Don’t hesitate to apply anyway – don’t let the confidence gap or imposter syndrome get in the way – there’s a chance you’re more amazing than you think you are!

 

Recruitment process:

1.  Submit an application form – it’s the best way for us to get to know you!
2. Answer a few technical questions during an initial phone call with Android team
3. Join an interview with Android team, Talent Acquisition Specialist and Head of Delivery (remote)

What you can get?

As Droids On Roids, we make sure to give you a space where you can focus on your work whenever you need it. We will provide you with the necessary equipment to enable you to work remotely (MacBook, software and accessories). You will get access to private medical care (Medicover), and paid days off to recharge whenever you need it. With us you will be able to develop your skills by taking part in internal workshops, meetings, internal projects and learning about new technologies. You will receive a fixed training budget that you can use at your own discretion. If you live outside of Wroclaw and you want to relocate, you will get 3000 PLN as a relocation bonus.

About the job: technical

You will co-create cutting-edge mobile projects having a chance to work in domain-diverse environments, working closely with experienced team members and clients from all over the world.

As Android developers, we love using Kotlin and do it whenever we can (well, as long as it’s an appropriate tool for the job).  Writing unit tests is part of our daily workflow, not an afterthought. We’re also in the process of applying the same approach to functional testing.

We host our repositories on GitHub. Pull requests get reviewed by product team members. You can review other projects and platforms too! Many projects has Bitrise CI hooks attached so actions such as pushes and pull requests trigger various automated workflows. We have a bunch of test devices in our office that are hooked up to a test farm (OpenSTF), which means we can use them remotely as well.

We don’t stick to a solution if it’s not working – we use tools to fit our needs, not to control us. Technical and architectural decisions are all up to you and your development team.

About the job: non-technical

The hierarchy in our organization is flat. This means that we do things “from the bottom up” – there is no need to go through successive levels of management to solve a simple problem.

When working on a project, the team includes other Android developers, other platform developers, a QA engineer, a designer and a scrum master. Typically, the team sits in one room (no open space!), which fosters excellent collaboration. We work in Scrum in 1-2 week sprints (depending on the project), but we use it as a framework, not a process, which means we adapt it to the needs of the project. As developers, we try not to do Agile, but to be Agile. We keep our product backlogs in Jira and our documentation in Confluence. We also use Google Suite, Trello and Slack.

We also have weekly Android team meetings where we discuss both technical and non-technical. If you want to attend iOS or web team meetings, you can do so. We also do joint meetings from time to time if we want to discuss general development topics.

P.S. Do you know someone who might be a great part of our team? Please refer them to our career’s website or e-mail: [email protected] for more details.
