Android Engineer

Job description

Felyx is expanding! The coming years we are facing hyper-growth in The Netherlands and the rest of Europe. Therefore, we are looking for an ambitious Android Engineer to build our new mobile app from scratch.


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. And being a fun way around town is, of course, a great bonus! 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, creatives, operators and engineers, and looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. Do you share our DNA: self-starting, social, driven and a great sense of humor? Great! Join our ride!

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 four other team members whom are primarily focused on back-end engineering. You will work with our back-end engineers to implement new features in the app as they become available.
