Job Description

The Opportunity

We invite you to become part of our vision, in building omni-channel digital banking experiences for any device, and surprising the financial market with amazing apps built on our platform. As an Android Software Engineer at Backbase, you’re part of one of the pillars of our R&D department: the Mobile SDK team. This team is responsible for delivering essential building blocks for mobile apps developed and managed using our digital banking platform. It’s a multidisciplinary team of experienced and highly skilled software and test engineers. Team members are from all over the world, but have a few things in common: a love for portable technology, a willingness to use the latest and greatest in software development, and a drive to make their job the best in the world.

Your Responsibilities

Improving, developing and maintaining our Mobile SDK will be one of your key responsibilities. This SDK enables organisations to build and manage mobile apps based on our platform, including CMS-like manageability and the consumption of out-of-the-box functionality, while still keeping the application flexible and easy to maintain. What does this really mean? It means developing with a vision and daily communication with your direct colleagues and other teams. Since mobile is a discipline that has its roots planted in the entire organisation, next to your role within R&D, you can also expect Android-related assignments in other departments. These assignments may include technical tasks such as one-time password implementations, as well as non-technical tasks such as providing consultancy and training.

Your Profile

The ideal candidate for this challenging position as an Android software engineer within Backbase will fit the following profile:

• 3 or more years’ in-depth experience with native Android software development, mastering technologies and concepts such as Java, the Android SDK, Android Studio and ProGuard.

• Experience with networking, including security (e.g., stateful and stateless requests, SSL pinning), caching and parsing of data (e.g., JSON and/or XML).

• Experience with hybrid solutions such as rendering (complex) web pages, including HTML, JavaScript and CSS in web view components, PhoneGap, Apache Cordova or similar solutions.

• Experienced with Scrum and Agile practices, automated testing and continuous integration builds.

• Experienced with performance tuning, reusability and maintainability of mobile applications, and applying architecture design patterns.

• Excellent communication skills in English.

Your personality can be classified as:

• A team player who’s passionate about software development and actively shares knowledge.

• An out-of-the-box mentality, not only solving today’s issues, but thinking about tomorrow’s challenges.

• Flexible, balanced and always striving for improvements.

• Last but not least, you’re a fun colleague to work with!
