Lead Android Developer, Venice

Our client is a Series A funded startup with a solid track record of success.  The company is partnered with premier global brands to develop apps for smart devices.   The founder is a good friend and highly technical, with excellent communication and leadership skills.  The overall culture here is a nice mix of intelligence + fun + low ego.   It's also a very loyal group, since the products are compelling and the company is well positioned for success.

We're looking to round out the existing team with a mobile developer with strong communication &  technical skills particularly in developing complex apps for Android.  A mix of branded company experience + early stage startup experience is ideal.   You will have built multiple products from the ground up.  You might have an excellent education with a technical degree, or you might be a self-educated engineer.  Either way, you solve problems in an elegant way and have a track record of success.   You roll up your sleeves eagerly but also enjoy mentoring others.   

Technical skills: Minimum 3 years full time experience as a developer for complex Android applications, with a strong foundation in Java and object oriented technology.   Agile.  Experience with Agile test automation and CI frameworks. Deep understanding of mobile application and client server development. Lead experience is useful, or at least solid communication skills with some prior experience in mentoring others.
