Android Developer

Job description

As urbanization is rising and the air quality is deteriorating, we feel the need to make our cities greener and healthier by offering a sustainable mobility solution. Besides, we offer a new and fun way around town! At felyx, everybody within their own expertise is contributing to a cleaner city by making this swift door-to-door transportation the new status quo. We are working together as an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, operators, marketers, engineers, and looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. Felyx is one of the few micro-mobility players in the world that is EBITDA positive on a group level. We are a young company with more than a hundred employees, working in the operations and at the head office in Amsterdam. You can describe us as passionate, ambitious, entrepreneurial, and transparent. Do you share our DNA? Great! Join our ride!

Here is the challenge

As an Android Developer you are responsible for everything and anything that can potentially touch the app domain; both short and long term. Existing Android development experience is a must for this position, but we also care about general engineering skills. Our ideal candidate has a few years of experience developing Android apps. Striving to develop high-quality, maintainable software is important for us, as is being familiar with fundamental software engineering best practices to ensure the quality of our product.

You will be part of our engineering team, which consists of ten other members, ranging from back-end, front-end, mobile and devops.

And important not to forget: we encourage you to grow with the company and within your role as we are continually on our journey towards ‘world domination’. Just kidding, market leader in Europe will do (for now).

  • Have a BS/MS degree in Computer Science or a related field
  • Have at least three years of experience in designing and building high quality Android apps with user experience and maintainability in mind
  • Master at least one of the following languages: Java, Kotlin

  • Know your way around Git, Android Studio, CICD tools
  • Have strong abstract reasoning skills and an agile and pragmatic mindset

  • Have experience in writing software for other parts of the stack, e.g. back-end or front-end
  • Have one ore more apps currently published in the Google Play Store

What's in it for me?

An ambitious team of entrepreneurial colleagues with a shared passion for our mission. You will work in a transparent, fast-growing and inspirational environment in which you are able to take the lead over your own career and will get challenged on a daily basis! And next to that:

  • 29 paid days off on a full-time basis: 28 on the roll and a day off on your birthday!
  • You will get free felyx minutes.
  • We want to invest in your future: a good pension plan is therefore in place (1/3 employee, 2/3 employer).
  • We offer 6 weeks of paternity leave with 100% salary for all (upcoming) dads.
  • We take your development seriously and encourage you to grow with the company and within your role.
  • Once we are able to go back to the office (hopefully soon!), we offer a tasty and healthy lunch.

Last but not least: fun, freedom and trust! We're not scared to work our butts off, but this is only possible once we all experience joy in the work that we do every day.

We are very proud of the fact that we have been named by LinkedIn as a top start-up to work at for the second time in a row, together with many other prestigious awards we’ve received since our start in 2017. We are operational in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Groningen, Haarlem, Eindhoven, Den Bosch and Brussels and will be launching many more (European) cities in 2021. We have a strong focus on scaling up internationally.

At felyx we believe that the best workplace is one that represents the world we live in today. This means we believe that diversity in the broadest sense of the word connects us and drives us forward as a company.

We believe that diversity goes hand in hand with different perspectives. It is these different perspectives that can help us become better and more innovative in finding solutions for our customers.

And because we believe this can be achieved, we are looking for colleagues who are intrinsically motivated and bring the right experience. Gender, age, sexual orientation or origin will never be a factor and will never become one.

We understand you might not tick all the boxes above. The truth is, we don't either. If you feel up for the ride, we encourage you to apply now!
