Ribot [UK]: Full-Time Android Developer
We’re a group of designers, developers and general tech tinkerers who have come together to make future interfaces simpler and more helpful. We’re based by the sea down in Brighton, work with Tesco, Google, Intel, Swiftkey & others and we’ve been around for some 5 years now.
Oh, and we’ve just been voted one of the Top 50 Innovators in mobile by Mobile Entertainment, and nominated for Agency Of The Year 2011 by .Net mag.
From day one, you’ll be writing code for our own radical in-house products and for high-profile, star-studded client projects. Along with designing and planning with fellow droids, you’ll have the ability to collaborate with designers to realise awesome experiences.
If you’re a London-based developer you should seriously consider quitting the smog and joining us! Hell, if you live anywhere outside of Brighton, you should consider making the move. On top of fresh sea air and a chilled beachy lifestyle, we offer a highly competitive salary. It’s worth thinking about.
We’re looking for someone with strong Android skills, specifically:
• Strong Android codebase brain
• Android ROMing (You’re able to build ROMs *almost* effortlessly)
• Very good Java skills
• Custom Views (canvas, bitmaps and graphics)
• Content resolvers (contacts, messages etc)
• Data storage
…and you’ll need some more general skills too! As with the other ribots, you’ll need a brain like a swiss army knife:
• UX basics
• Source control (git)
• Comfortable with command line
• Unit testing (Android-specific, preferably)
• Able to move across languages with ease
• Agile experience
