We can provide a collaborative team environment that will support your learning other skills beyond of Android such as iOS application, mobile-oriented backend and web development.

WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WORK WITH US:
The Residential Buy & Rent tribes are headed up by the Executive General Manager, Andrew Rechtman and we contribute approximately $450M revenue per year. Our products deal primarily with promoting customers’ properties to potential buyers and renters and the delivery team will be maintaining and creating products in close collaboration with a highly engaged product team. Each day we get together, talk about what we've just done, what we're about to do then work together during the day. We believe strongly in pairing, testing, continuous delivery. Each week we participate in guilds across the company to keep our skills sharp and increase our impact, and in team retrospectives where we keep track of how our team is going. Your manager acts as a mentor to help guide you and your career, instead of being someone who monitors your day to day.
WHAT YOU GET BEYOND A GREAT REMUNERATION PACKAGE:
+ Birthday leave. A day off for your birthday.
+ Flexible working arrangements. We've got people who work part time, and people who work from home one day a week.
