  • Building Design Systems that support both light and dark appearance modes to support teams in building out views
  • High attention to detail with regards to UI implementation and striving for pixel-perfect layouts on Android
  • Building Android apps that support multiple flavours and build variants, e.g. Development, Staging and Production app flavours.
  • Extensive experience with Android SDK versions and have been building functionality to support down to Lollipop (and previously Jellybean)
  • Building support for deep link functionality including deferred deep linking
  • Working with a variety of libraries and API's including Firebase, error trackers, networking libraries, etc.
  • Working with push notifications and allowing users to configure notifications based on type
  • Networking, including REST with JSON, web sockets, gRPC, and Protobuf
  • MVVM architecture with LiveData and architecture components

  • Building location-based functionality including "near me" functionality and working with maps
  • Building custom UI for audio/video recording
  • Building web view applications and enabling communication between the web view and native layer
  • Unit testing in Java and Kotlin, including with coroutines, JUnit (4 & 5), Mockk
  • Automated UI testing with Espresso and Appium
  • Setting up Android lint and Kotlin lint to ensure code style consistency in the project
  • CI/CD setup for running tests, lint and other tasks for Git workflows, as well as automating deployments and code signing for Firebase App Distribution and the Google Play Store
  • I prefer to work primarily with views Android (XML) but can also work with Jetpack Compose
