As a member of the Global Bank tribe, you’ll play a key part in helping us build SumUp's own digital bank. You’ll be part of a global, autonomous, cross-functional team that takes an aspect of our product and perfect it from concept to execution. Becoming a part of the Global Bank Tribe means working alongside ~250 people with 32 nationalities across Cologne, Berlin, São Paulo, Santiago, Sofia and Vilnius who love to take ownership, work with purpose and help businesses thrive.

As a Senior Android Engineer, you'll be part of an experience team that is responsible for building reliable, secure and easy-to-use features inside our mobile app that’s exposed to millions of users across the globe. You’ll empower merchants with a smooth, effortless and engaging banking experience.

What you’ll do

  • Work with large scale, highly available and resilient modern systems

  • Participate in architectural discussions, propose solutions, and contribute to the technical roadmap of our Android application.

  • You’ll work within cross-functional feature teams (squads) in the Banking Tribe, all dedicated to delivering a top-tier product.

  • Dive into the code and create clean components in our codebase, develop and refine features and how we write tests and maintain peak performance.

  • Work closely with designers and product owners to build features that are maintainable, usable and beautiful.

  • Help us rethink problems we've solved before in a different way as needs evolve

  • Develop a wealth of knowledge about our complex problem domain as well as its implications in the interface and the backend – and how to manage it in a clean way

You’ll be great for this role if

  • You have hands-on experience building mobile applications using Kotlin, and solid understanding of Android app design principles, patterns, and best practices.

  • Good knowledge of architectural design patterns such as MVVM and MVP, and proven experience ensuring modularized and scalable app architecture.

  • You care about user interaction, usability, and of course, making the interface beautiful

  • Ability to take ownership and drive the development of exciting and impactful new features and products.

  • A genuine passion for writing well-structured, readable, and maintainable code

  • You know what to test, why to test it, and how to write flexible tests that won't break.

  • An agile mindset and experience with Agile practices (Pairing, TDD).

  • You thrive in a team where you can learn and try new tech, collaborate on technical challenges and grow as a team.

  • You have solid written and spoken english language skills, as you will be working with an international team.

The Tech We Work With

  • Language: Kotlin, some legacy code is still maintained in Java

  • UI: Jetpack compose - our development features are primarily using XML based designs and you are free to choose compose/xml

  • Architectural Patterns: Clean architecture. Navigation controller and single activity arch. MVVM at presentation layer.

  • Dependency Injection: Hilt

  • Communication: Kotlin Flows and coroutines, Detekt and checkstyle for code quality check

  • Backend Integration: Majority of our tribe integrations are gRPC. Our new features are done using REST - (Retrofit, Okhttp, moshi standard stack)

  • Authentication: OAuth

  • Firebase: For Analytics, remote config and crashlytics. Grafana for better observability and crash alert integration to slack

  • Testing: JUnit, Mockito and jacoco for reports. UI Testing: We have UI tests for critical flows but we go with pyramid structure where the unit tests are the base and UI tests are at the tip.

  • VersionControl: Git and github

Why you should join SumUp

  • Work on a high impact squad that is at the core of the Bank Tribe
