You cannot miss this opportunity! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

We know Senior Android Engineers are a rare species, so here's why this is a position that you need to check out ๐Ÿ‘€We're the leading football app in Europe, and need you and your killer Android engineering skills to come and help us smash this industry ๐Ÿ‘Šโšฝ๏ธ๐ŸŒ

We're on a mission to democratise the world of football. Our first step is to create an app that empowers the world's 265 million football players to become better through performance tracking, peer evaluation, and personalised coaching. Itโ€™s not an easy challenge, but with 750,000+ players already onboarded we have progressed further than anyone ever before in this space ๐Ÿ™Œ

Weโ€™re proud of our Android app, which is already a big success among users in Denmark ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ, Norway ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด, Sweden ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช, France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท, Germany ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช, Switzerland ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ, Austria ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น, and Portugal ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น.

Weโ€™re always eager to learn and spend time experimenting and improving our tech skills. We do internal talks where team members share new knowledge with each other on everything from advanced Git usage, exploring new programming languages and paradigms like Rust, to writing a Slack bot in Haskell ๐Ÿค“
