Premium Job From Auto Trader
Recruiter: Auto Trader
Listed on: 22nd March
Location: Manchester
Salary/Rate: £40,000 - £60,000
Type: Permanent
Start Date: ASAP

About the Role

We're looking for experienced Android developers to help us enhance the in-app experience for millions of visitors to the UK's leading digital automotive marketplace.

While consumer experience remains the core focus, our iOS and Android developers are paving consumers' way to buy vehicles online.

We're revolutionising how we build native apps by taking a 'backend for front end' approach and developing a new client-side framework that consumes data and context/layout information from our backend API.

Our app developers take an object-orientated approach to programming and advocate TDD, refactoring and regression test automation to rapidly deliver seamless user experiences. We value collaboration and teamwork. Interactions such as pairing, code reviews and regular stand-ups mean that our app developers stay connected.

What we're looking for

  • Experience building and supporting Android Native Apps
  • Kotlin and Java development experience
  • Experience in unit testing
  • Experience with REST
  • Experience mentoring, coaching and sharing technical expertise

Although not a requirement, helpful experience includes:

  • Backend development
  • UI automation testing
  • Notifications/ Firebase experience

Benefits and more

We're offering a salary between £40,000 - £60,000 dependent on experience, and a flexible benefits package to support your health and well-being. You'll have 28 days holiday per year, and that's in addition to bank holidays and half day closures on Christmas and New Year's Eve. Our Aviva pension scheme offers between 5% to 7% employer contributions depending on the percentage you choose to contribute, and we provide Bupa healthcare cover for all of our employees.

Our employee assistance programme, enhanced parental leave and share-save options and are just some of the other benefits on offer should you decide to join us.

Career development is something that we're passionate about at Auto Trader, and we all develop and learn things differently. Whether you attend an external conference, utilise a LinkedIn Learning license or choose one of our in-house masterclasses, there's something for everyone.

Our employees are working from home due to the current government restrictions, so if you're invited to take part in an assessment it will take place virtually. We're looking forward to returning to our offices in Manchester and London once it's safe to do so.
