Android Developers

Since 2008, we at Qvik have been build­ing mobile exper­i­ences for con­sumers, e.g. in the fields of media, fin­ance, travel and mobil­ity, and retail. If you’ve used Yle Uutis­vahti media ser­vices or MaaS Global’s Whim app for com­mut­ing, booked trips through Aurinko­matkat, traveled with Tallink Silja or used Sanoma’s Aku Ankka Lataamo app to read car­toons, our developers and design­ers have been there to cre­ate your iOS and/or Android exper­i­ence. We also sup­por­ted our cus­tom­er St1 to bring Apple Pay to Fin­land by build­ing St1 Finance’s mobile app and infra­struc­ture as well as the Apple Pay integ­ra­tion. We are also cur­rently cooper­at­ing with major Finnish com­pan­ies in the fields of, for example, fin­ance and logist­ics, on ser­vices that most Finns will be using in the near future.

Do these sound like pro­jects you would have liked to work on? If so, come and work with our next ones!

Responsibilities

We expect a lot from Qvikies because we believe that if you have high expect­a­tions, you also deliv­er bet­ter and devel­op faster. In addi­tion to shar­ing our vis­ion of a com­pany cul­ture, the level of pro­fes­sion­al­ism and core skills have to be high. We expect you to be used to recom­mend­ing and com­par­ing dif­fer­ent tech or design solu­tions. You gladly bounce your ideas with your col­leagues and ment­or juni­ors. Based on your expert­ise, you can take the lead in pro­jects. You also under­stand the nature of the con­sult­ing busi­ness and what it is like to work as a con­sult­ant. We also expect you to ask ques­tions, take chances, be silly and be your­self. That’s all.

What we’re looking for

Your tech skills should heav­ily rely on Java or Kot­lin. You should also have good Finnish skills. Exper­i­ence in any oth­er lan­guages, plat­forms, tech­no­lo­gies or envir­on­ments is a def­in­ite plus for you as a future Qvikie. Respons­ive design and nat­ive apps are the things that make you tick. Any apps already in the store will show a good case for your exper­i­ence. Seni­or­ity in lead­ing pro­jects, mas­ter­ing agile meth­od­o­lo­gies, and pas­sion for solv­ing mul­ti­fa­ceted tech prob­lems is a def­in­ite plus.

Also, the abil­ity to thrive in a multi-vendor envir­on­ment and seam­lessly work­ing togeth­er with both your team and the cus­tom­er are things that we truly appre­ci­ate. Usu­ally, most of the work occurs at our cus­tom­ers’ premises, so hav­ing ini­ti­at­ive, self-dis­cip­line and being act­ive are import­ant in terms of your own devel­op­ment and pro­ject suc­cess.

But, in the end, we are not look­ing for super­her­oes. Just nor­mal, skilled, fun-to-work-with kinda people who want to share their tal­ent but also con­stantly learn more through work­ing with exper­i­enced col­leagues. The kind of people who con­sider the sky as their lim­it. The kind of people who have goals and the abil­ity to get there.

What we can offer

This part is clear: we offer some pretty cool pro­jects for our developers and design­ers. Some of our latest pro­jects have been related to, for example, mobil­ity and travel, pay­ments and machine learn­ing.

A big part of our com­pet­ence devel­op­ment comes through every­day work, but we also have guilds, meetups and coach­ing to sup­port Qvikies in their pro­fes­sion­al growth. Our bene­fits pack­age is nice and extens­ive, includ­ing lunch, sports and cul­ture coupons; com­muter bene­fit;  work equip­ment of your choice and phone sub­scrip­tion; occu­pa­tion­al health care with extra insur­ances; mas­sage at the office; annu­al employ­ee bonus; and many sports and hobby pos­sib­il­it­ies with oth­er Qvikies. In spring 2019, we will also have a villa in Maur­i­ti­us for Qvikies and their fam­il­ies to share to have a hol­i­day or work remotely.

Responsibilities

We expect a lot from Qvikies because we believe that if you have high expectations, you also deliver better and develop faster. In addition to sharing our vision of a company culture, the level of professionalism and core skills have to be high. We expect you to be used to recommending and comparing different tech or design solutions. You gladly bounce your ideas with your colleagues and mentor juniors. Based on your expertise, you can take the lead in projects. You also understand the nature of the consulting business and what it is like to work as a consultant. We also expect you to ask questions, take chances, be silly and be yourself. That’s all.

What we're looking for

Your tech skills should heavily rely on Java or Kotlin. You should also have good Finnish skills. Experience in any other languages, platforms, technologies or environments is a definite plus for you as a future Qvikie. Responsive design and native apps are the things that make you tick. Any apps already in the store will show a good case for your experience. Seniority in leading projects, mastering agile methodologies, and passion for solving multifaceted tech problems is a definite plus. Also, the ability to thrive in a multi-vendor environment and seamlessly working together with both your team and the customer are things that we truly appreciate. Usually, most of the work occurs at our customers’ premises, so having initiative, self-discipline and being active are important in terms of your own development and project success. But, in the end, we are not looking for superheroes. Just normal, skilled, fun-to-work-with kinda people who want to share their talent but also constantly learn more through working with experienced colleagues. The kind of people who consider the sky as their limit. The kind of people who have goals and the ability to get there.

What we can offer

This part is clear: we offer some pretty cool projects for our developers and designers. Some of our latest projects have been related to, for example, mobility and travel, payments and machine learning.

A big part of our competence development comes through everyday work, but we also have guilds, meetups and coaching to support Qvikies in their professional growth.
