A well-known energy provider in Glasgow is looking for an Android Engineer to join their team. The company are one of the leaders in the drive towards completely Green Energy and you’ll have the opportunity to work in a team that has a pivotal role in that.

Over the last couple years, they’ve re-structured their teams to give everyone a lot more autonomy and opportunity to progress and are now bulking out the squads as part of this. The team builds web and mobile applications for internal use as well as externally for their customers. They are well-known for having a very strong engineering culture, good processes and have high standards in their work.

What will I be doing?

Great question!

Most of the work you’ll be doing will be on the main Android customer facing application. They have some impressive new projects which you’ll be able to get involved in from the start. They work mostly with Kotlin these days and are looking for someone to have experience in Kotlin. They will consider people that are more experienced in Java but Kotlin is highly favourable. Any experience with Reactive programming, testing and/or experience with CI/CD would be a big bonus as well.

The company love people that are eager to learn and can you give you the opportunity to cross-train in other areas such as iOS Development, Front End Development, Back End Development and more.

Who am I?

It’s obviously pretty essential that you’ve come sort of Android Development background, ideally working with Kotlin.

Away from their excellent engineering culture, the company work very collaboratively and look for people that fit in well with that. There is a lot of autonomy in the role, but they do like people that aren’t afraid to work through problems with their colleagues as well. As previously mentioned, they like people that are keen on continuing to expand their skill set so if that’s you then it could be a great fit. They also like people that keep up to date with new technologies and if it makes sense for the business, they’re more than happy for you to try and introduce these.

Who will I be working with?

As mentioned, they’ve done a lot of restructuring and moved into smaller squads, giving you a lot more opportunity to influence things. Teams work in squads that include Developers, Testers, Product Owners, Engineering Managers, Designers and more. You’ll obviously work closely with the rest of Mobile team as well.

How much will I be getting paid and where will I be based?

You’ll probably want to know this before applying

There is a salary on offer up to £60,000 for the Android Developer role. At the moment they’re ideally looking for people at least at mid-level and the salary they offer will be dependent on your level of experience. They have a really strong benefits package which includes a strong pension, up to 10% performance related bonus and much more. The company’s office is in Glasgow City Centre and ideally, they’d like people to come in once a week.

If you’re an experienced Android Engineer that is passionate about Green Energy, then please apply and/or get in touch with Jack Steven at Cathcart Technology.
