About this opportunity

We’re looking for Android Product Engineers to join our Mass Affluent Digital Experience (MADE) lab in London.

Mass Affluent is the segment of customers with between £50,000 and £5 million in investable assets. We have close to three million Mass Affluent customers, and we are working hard to create greenfield personalised and tailored offering to ensure a beautiful banking experience. We want to provide a seamless digital experience, with the right products and services at our customers’ fingertips, but our face-to-face, telephone and secure messaging remain a vital part of our service.

What do we need to see from applicants?

We like people who come from a diverse group of backgrounds that can bring new and challenging ways of thinking to the team. As a minimum to be considered we’ll need to see evidence of the following in your CV:


  • Excellent knowledge of Kotlin / Java
  • Strong knowledge of Android SDK, Android UI design principles, patterns, and best practices
  • Professional hands-on experience and working knowledge in designing a mobile experience for variable screen sizes in variable versions of Android phones and tablets


  • Knowledge of the open-source Android ecosystem and the libraries available for common tasks and benchmarking and optimisation
  • Unit, UI and Snapshot Testing
  • Solid understanding of software architecture (MVVM), design patterns (SOLID, DRY) and best practices (specifically Google's Android design principles, interface guidelines)
  • In-depth knowledge and experience of interacting with RESTful APIs
  • Demonstrated experience collaborating with Product and Design colleagues to drive outcomes for customers
  • A good understanding of Git, source code management and managing change.
  • Knowledge and experience of agile development practices, continuous integration and test automation (e.g. TDD, BDD).
  • Excellent interpersonal and team working skills
  • Experience of technical guidance and mentoring.

Here’s how you’ll make a difference:

  • Collaborating across the Bank to ensure seamless integration of Android applications with other systems
  • Having an excellent understanding of Agile software development and supporting continuous improvement of your team
  • Contribute to levelling up how we design, build and operate mobile native software as scale within the Bank through the wider engineering community
  • Technically mentor and develop your colleagues, providing clear and constructive feedback, through code reviews and design documents
