    We're passionate about our codebase and are always looking for innovative ways to build fast. All our new code is written in Kotlin and we use an MVI architecture with Rx and Dagger to help us write high-

    quality, testable code. We currently have over 11,000 tests and counting! As a team, we love to learn and often participate in Lunch and Learn sessions with other Android developers and the wider tech community.

    For example, we've given talks at Droidcon London and Londroid. We're big fans of open source; we use it in our products and prefer to open source what we develop.

    We also support engineering teams with training and get an annual, individual budget for reading materials and to attend conferences anywhere in the world.

    We do what we say, so we have made our interview process publicly available. It can be found here, in what we call the Android "Playbook" So where do you work from?

    We have 2 offices in London, one in South Kensington and one in Liverpool Street. You probably want some flexibility around your hours & remote working.
