Senior Android Engineer

About Argent
Crypto has the potential to create a fairer internet and more open financial system. We want to make that accessible to everyone. 

To do this, we’ve built a crypto wallet with the simplicity and security of the best new banking apps - without the bank. We hope it solves some of crypto’s biggest problems: there are no seed phrases, transaction fees or cryptic addresses. And it protects you from theft.

As a team, we have experience scaling mobile apps to tens of millions of users. Our eclectic backgrounds include PhDs in nuclear physics, quantum cryptography and decentralised cognitive networks. We’re fortunate to be backed by the top VCs in Europe, including Index Ventures, Creandum and firstminute capital.  

The Senior Android Engineer role
The Senior Android Engineer drives the development of our native Android app. You’ll be critical to our future, not least because Android is the dominant platform in emerging markets, where crypto has particularly significant potential. This means you'll solve problems at scale for people around the world.

This means we’re looking for a highly skilled Android developer who can push mobile technologies to their limits. 

Your code will be efficient, maintainable, reusable and well-tested. You’ll define and build state-of-the-art application architecture. And you’ll implement custom native user interfaces using the latest Android programming techniques.

In the role you’ll work closely with world class engineers and product designers who aim to build an unrivalled product. You’ll not only contribute technical ideas but will help shape their overall direction.

Requirements are:
  • 3+ years experience delivering quality, at scale consumer-facing Android apps available in the Play Store
  • Fluency with Java and RxJava; knowledge of Kotlin is a plus
  • Interest in blockchain and the Ethereum ecosystem - but you don't need prior crypto experience
  • Strong object-oriented programming, and a good knowledge of pattern and anti-pattern design
  • Experience with app profiling, code versioning, deployment and continuous integration
  • Strong communication skills and an ability to work with both engineers and other roles
  • Fluency in written and spoken english 

How we work 
We work remotely, transparently and balance Argent with the rest of our lives. We’ve all got loved ones with unpredictable schedules, be they kids or cats. 

Although we’re a distributed team you'll need to be based in the UK or Europe. This is because we find communication much easier when we’re in similar time zones and a short flight away. Within Europe you can choose to work wherever you like! 

We get together for a week every quarter so we can collaborate in person, explore new solutions, and have fun. So far we’ve played pétanque in Nice, bonded in Brussels and (tried to) surf in Lisbon. 

Equal opportunities
At the heart of what we do is making crypto accessible to everyone. We want the team itself to reflect that diversity so we’d strongly encourage applications from underrepresented demographics.
