We are looking for

an energetic person in the Cambridge area who is keen to join a startup in the early days. This is not only about coding, but also the experience of seeing a software company from all angles as we grow our technology and the business. You might have one or two Android apps already under your belt and want to apply what you've learned, but also get more experience. At Droplet, you'd be supported by an experienced Founder Team and best-selling CTO. You'd be part of our company and make your own decisions, try out stuff, join our discussions, learn a lot and most importantly get things done. You'd be tinkering, growing, cheering, cursing, and enjoying the work in the startup-blaze. Droplet will be your baby too, and you'd be leading on the build of many different features and aspects of the app. It's not for everyone though -  we are looking for a strongly motivated person who believes in our mission to help groups organise themselves on mobile and grow with us.

 

We want you to be

  • super interested in the problem we're trying to solve for the people we're building it for
  • experienced enough on Android app development to build stuff, and keen to get more experience
  • comfortable working autonomously and communicate well remotely
  • receptive to direction and advice from others to improve your work and skills
  • outspoken to share your ideas, concerns, questions and feedback with us
  • keen on a fast-paced, experimental, fast-change environment
  • Cambridge based or nearby e.g. Ely
     

We offer

  • flexible workplace: no need to go to the office most days (unless you want to)
  • flexible work time: we can work around your lifestyle, but need you to be there when there is a fire
  • experience: get involved in and lead on a vast number of tech issues and systems in a short time, and beyond coding the chance to co-build a company with us
  • freedom: we work out together what the roadmap and time boxes look like and trust you to give it your best shot. Have a go, make mistakes, find and correct them, and deliver a workable solution - we'll be there to support you, but you're in the lead on the tech you own
  • impact: your personality, code, ideas and decisions will directly impact our tech, business and customers
  • career: as we grow, so does our team - the new kid on the block today will be the department head tomorrow (or maybe in a few more sleeps than that)

 

Your development experience

  • 1-2 years' experience in building apps in some form is great, you don't need to be a guru yet. You will have at least one app on the Google Play store.
  • Pro-actively self-teaching in your trade is the norm for you
  • Comfortable with version control (GitHub, BitBucket, etc)
  • Must have: Kotlin (preferred) or Java (also good) is a must
  • Good to have: coding in Swift
  • Good to have: you can build for both iOS and Android
  • Good to have: Knowledge of Firebase

If that sounds interesting, then please drop us a line!
