Overview of the role

We are looking for an experienced Android developer, with exposure to large code-base projects, willing to make the difference for an innovative and disruptive product which is unique in the mobile space and is transforming cybersecurity.

You will be involved in the customisation and extension of both the Chromium browser and the Android Open Source Project (in its entire stack) – key elements of the Garrison solution. You will bring your experience to drive their development, being responsible for meeting product requirements and keeping the software at a high standard. You will collaborate with multiple teams, lead integrations and mentor other software engineers.

2020/21 is shaping up to be our busiest and most productive year yet, with increasing demand, steady growth, and plenty of impactful projects taking place!

Product software development

  • Developing functionality for the product to meet the key market needs with a focus on delivering reliable, high-quality software solutions.
  • Contributing to the scoping and design of new software and supporting planning and estimating, including responsibility for estimating individual development tasks.

Integration, test and sustainment

  • Performing the end-to-end integration and test of software components and deploying them onto hardware through both manual testing and automated test development.
  • Interacting with local and remote teams on complex integrations.

Continuous improvement and innovation

  • Improving code maintainability, automation and supportability, e.g. code refactoring, code peer-review, unit test development and provision of stable APIs.
  • Suggesting and progressing opportunities for innovation across the product, investigating new technologies and techniques, performing prototyping with the direction of senior leadership, and discovering new opportunities for new design improvements and product features.

Skills and experience

You’ll be perfect for the role if you have the following -
  • Demonstrable experience in dealing with large code bases – understanding, customising and debugging.
  • Android application development using Java and Kotlin.
  • End-user application and/or Unix system programming in C/C++.

And experience in these areas would be a massive bonus (but don’t worry if haven’t covered!)
  • Android NDK development with exposure to JNI.
  • Android Open Source Project – Application, Frameworks and Native layers and build system.
  • Chromium browser internals.
  • Scripting with Python or similar.
  • Continuous Integration – including exposure to Gitlab pipelines and Docker/Kubernetes.
  • JavaScript development.
  • Linux Kernel and device drivers.

We are delighted to have team members who show the following qualities:

  • A passion for technology, demonstrated through previous project work, professional roles and/or personal projects. You’ll likely enjoy technical challenges and delivering results!
  • Self-motivated, flexible and adaptable, and can cope when thrown in at the deep end.
  • Will understand the importance of planning, prioritisation and getting work done on schedule.
  • Strong interpersonal and communications skills, plus the ability to effectively collaborate with others.
