Senior Android Engineer

Athens, Attica, Greece

At Plum, we're on a mission to maximise wealth for all. We’re making saving money effortless and turning investing into something everyone can do.

Our journey began back in 2017, when we became one of the first to use artificial intelligence and automation to simplify personal finance. Fast forward to today, and we've already helped people save £2 billion across 10 European markets.

Named the UK's fastest-growing fintech in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, our success is down to the passion and dedication of our diverse team. Based in our London, Athens and Nicosia offices, 170 talented people work together to empower people to do more with their money. And now, the team is growing!

The Role 

We’re looking for a user-focused Senior Android Engineer to join our engineering team. You'll be building Plum on Android from its early days, giving our current and prospective customers a more intimate way to interact with their money.

Our Engineering Approach

We value good engineering principles, imagination, quirkiness and healthy curiosity. We take a conservative approach to using external frameworks and we aspire to write simple, well-tested code, delivered in rapid iterations.

How We Work

We work in "squads" – a more startup-appropriate name for saying small, cross-functional teams. Each squad has a mission and a set of KPIs to monitor and improve. As an engineer you'll be working in a squad, but you can also reach out to and work with anyone in the company. You will also be part of a Mobile engineering team, consisting of Mobile Product Engineers who share the same vision and passion of building an exceptional mobile team that will help people be financially better off.

Please note we are following a hybrid work model, in which we visit our office 2 times per week.#LI-Hybrid

What we look for

Technical knowledge is critical but we are a startup treading in uncharted territory so attitude is even more important. We're looking for people that like uncertainty and want to figure out how to do things that haven’t been done before. You're a true team player and inherently positive. Where others see problems, you see solutions.

  • You want to build a product that makes people better off
  • You’re excited about programming in Kotlin
  • Yet, you still have intimate knowledge of the full Android stack and Android architecture patterns
  • You want to collaborate on a cutting-edge Android project
  • You’re a designer's best friend. You love being part of the design process and enjoy turning the design into a well-crafted and delightful experience
  • You’re a product person too — you understand the value and impact of your work

Fist-bumps 👊 if you have

  • Fluency in Kotlin programming language
  • Published at least one original Android app
  • Extensive experience with DI and Android architecture components
  • Strong understanding of Git strategies, continuous integration setup, and automation
  • Solid experience with testing (unit, integration, snapshots)
  • An eye for design that you can transform into Material Design!
  • Jetpack compose experience
  • You’re not afraid to take ownership and collaborate effectively with cross-functional teams, including designers, product managers, and other engineers.
