Oda is a company on the move. We built Norway’s leading online grocery store and now we want to share what we’ve created with the world! Delivering a huge range of high-quality, affordable groceries and fresh produce to millions of doorsteps is a complex process, but we believe we’ve cracked the code. Using data-driven methodology, with a focus on sustainability all the way along the chain, we are building the most efficient retail system in the world. With solid backing from some of the biggest international investors in the world, we’re proud to be one of the fastest growing companies in Europe.

Our Shop Platform teams create the world’s most customer friendly and efficient online grocery shopping experience. The teams build and scale all end-user product experiences (e.g. on web, app and communication), custom built tools and solutions for content & marketing, category & product management, pricing, customer service, user & order management, as well as underlying core services such as payment platform, order handling, recommendation engines and user modeling. Our end to end shop platform is built on a unique combination of great user experience, software and AI with complete control over all data.

We have recently announced our plans for expansion to Finland. In order to build our organization, we are now looking for Android Software Engineers located in Helsinki. As an Android software engineer you will be a part of a cross functional product team with software engineers, designers, product managers and data scientists.

    • Take our app to the next level: Write high-quality and maintainable Kotlin code, ensure our Android app has a scalable architecture and a great user-friendly user experience
    • Set architecture and direction: Build great native experiences where it matters, cross platform views where it makes sense — and contribute to building our component based-framework in collaboration with iOS and web developers

    • Room for a flexible work schedule with a healthy work-life balance 
    • You’ll be an instrumental part of our success when entering the Finnish market
    • You’ll of course come and visit us in Oslo, and show us around Helsinki when the world is ready for travel!
    • You’ll get to understand and part take in organizational development, collaboration, strategy building and product development in the most forward leaning industry there is.

    • Have an eye for details and strive to create great user experiences
