How we work

At Catawiki, we keep our users close to our hearts and make sure that we deliver a great user experience across all platforms. Android is no exception! As an Android developer working at Catawiki, you are empowered to take full ownership of the features we deliver and full ownership of how we structure our codebase.

We embrace change, we’ve migrated from MVC to MVP and then to MVVM. Currently, we are using Kotlin and enjoying all the cool advantages that come with it. We are constantly improving our architecture, which makes working at Catawiki fun and challenging at the same time.

What you’ll do

Here at Catawiki, you will have a huge impact, working in a data-driven way to add value to the business along with the other 7 members of the Android team. You will add your own expertise to further grow our business, experiment, and innovate the product.

You’ll be adding new features to create an even greater experience for our users. As well as actively collaborating with your fellow Android developers to take the codebase and the entire Android App to the next level. Our millions of users will thank you for that!

How we roll - Our Stack

Our codebase is primarily written in Java but we are strongly adopting Kotlin for our new features and refactorings. Our app uses MVVM as a general architecture, and we rely heavily on the reactive/functional paradigm using RxJava. We also make use of Android’s Architecture Components. We are using the most popular 3rd parties like Dagger 2, Retrofit, data binding, as well as Mockito and Espresso for testing.

  • You are a passionate experienced Android Developer with a strong eye for detail.

  • You strive to be a great team player and don’t shy away from new challenges.

  • You are comfortable in a startup environment and are ready to jump in and help if needed.

  • Strong knowledge of the Android framework

  • Proficient with Kotlin

  • Knowledge of the reactive/functional paradigm

  • Familiarity with MVVM architecture

  • Familiarity with consuming RESTful APIs
