  • 3+ years of non-internship professional software development experience.
  • Experience with Kotlin / Java and the JDK and Android Developers Kit. Knowledge of Android Architecture, performance optimization, and Security. Android UI Skills.
  • Experience in mobile app development in Android.
  • Experience contributing to the architecture and design (architecture, design patterns, reliability, and scaling) of new and current systems.
  • Experience building complex software systems that have been successfully delivered to customers.
  • Experience in professional software engineering practices & best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations.
