This job ad goes out to all the visionaries who want to find a purpose in what they are doing and take accountability. With Blinkist we’ve created a meaningful product that is growing fast. Our blinks, key insight summaries of the world’s best nonfiction, help more than one million people around the globe to keep learning new, exciting things, each and every day. The app has been featured by the iTunes and Google Play Store numerous times. We are working with the latest tech and tools – our minSdkVersion is 16 - Jelly Bean. Our tech debt is minimal and our foundations are solid. In order to further improve our Android App, we need you to join us.
As one of our Android developers you will:
Take responsibility in driving the Blinkist Android App from day 1
Implement new features & polish the app by increasing stability, fixing bugs and thinking about the user experience
Interact closely with designers & product managers to propose Android-suitable solutions
Conduct Code Reviews and participate in regular standups to ensure quality and alignment
Provide second level support to our customers
To do this, we believe you should have:
3+ years of Android specific development experience
A deep understanding of Java (Kotlin is a plus)
Familiarity with RxJava & Dagger
Passion for writing clean, elegant, and easily-testable code
Very Nice to have: familiarity with Gradle and Groovy
Be keen to work with best-practice agile development methods and to increase the team's effectiveness with each release - prior experience with scrum or kanban in a full stack team is a plus
At our Berlin HQ we offer a fantastic workplace including all the benefits you’d expect – from a personalized perk system to free drinks, fresh fruit, and furious foosball fights, plus the nicest, smartest bunch of coworkers. Uniting us as a team, we foster a unique company culture championing self-empowerment, transparency, direct communication, personal development, and mutual support. We got rid of classical management hierarchies and instead distributed authority among all colleagues. So, we strongly believe in the advantages of self-organization and autonomous working: not only do we want you to grow into the Blinkist Android developer role, but we want this role to grow with you, too. Add a competitive salary, flexible working hours, and a meaningful product on the rise, and you have a first impression of why Blinkist is a great place to work.
