Blinkist is growing quickly and we are looking for an Android Developer onsite in Berlin or remote to help accelerate our ability to deliver a top-notch product to our users. This is where you come in. You will ship features that affect millions of users and revenue while playing with the latest technologies.

As one of our Android developers you will:
  • Take responsibility for driving the Blinkist Android App from day one.
  • 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
To do this, we believe you should have:
  • Extensive experience in Android Development
  • Strong experience with RxJava and testing (Espresso, JUnit)
  • Experience with Kotlin
  • Familiarity with Dagger and Gradle
  • Passion for writing clean architecture and easily-testable code
  • Be keen to work with best-practice agile development methods and to increase the team's effectiveness with each release
What’s in it for you?

At Blinkist, we offer a fantastic workplace in the heart of Berlin-Neukölln including all the benefits you’d expect – from a personalized perk system to free private language lessons. Add a competitive salary, a personal development budget of 1,500€ per year, flexible working hours, a meaningful product on the rise, and an opportunity to attend conferences, and you have a first impression of why Blinkist is a great place to work.

We got rid of classical management hierarchies and, instead, distributed authority among all colleagues. We foster a unique company culture championing self-empowerment, personal development, direct communication and mutual support. Not only do you have the room to move between product and development but we want this role of Android Developer to grow with you.
