There’s almost 1,200  of us already hard at work and we love welcoming new people. We’ve got offices across the world, from London to Sydney and 15 locations in between - they’re open for business but right now lots of us are working from home. Want to be part of our global growth story - read on…

About the role

As a React Native Android Engineer, you’ll be helping us build our Android App working with our feature team. We have users sending money from 50 countries to over 150 countries – and we’re expanding. The work is varied, from creating new products and features to improving existing functionality, we strive to build a better customer experience and a better codebase. This is real growth at pace.

The codebase is written in mostly Kotlin and we are migrating to React Native; we release every two weeks using Bitrise, and yet, we still have an appetite for so much more.

As a member of WorldRemit’s Engineering team you will aim high, embrace challenge and always do what’s right; acting with integrity and building trust as you contribute to the company’s technical direction and long term decision making.
 

Reporting to the Senior Manager, you will:

  • Write great code. We understand code is read more than it’s written, better off tested and maintainability is a must.
  • Help shape what we build. You’ll be working closely with product owners, designers and other engineers to design and refine our work. We work as a team and your input is key.
  • Own delivery. We’re obsessed with shipping value; you’ll own work beyond just a pull request. You’ll care about bugs, scalability, uptime and other non-functional requirements.
  • Grow together. You’ll review other’s work and happily seek feedback on yours to ensure we build a better codebase and sharpen each other's skills.

What we’re looking for from you...

  • Solid working experience as an Android Engineer with React Native (Typescript and Redux).
  • Basic knowledge of native Android using Kotlin.
  • Works across the whole app. From REST calls and auto-layout, to build processes and test cases.
  • Comfortable working in pair programming but also able to complete your own tasks independently.
  • Bias for action. You see a problem, you fix a problem. You get buy in for your solutions and keep tickets moving. We’re always looking for ways to ship at pace.
  • Growth mindset. A desire to learn from others and make yourself better every day.
  • Open mind to accept constructive feedback and accept opinions of other Engineers within a safe environment.
  • Agile outlook. You need to be excited about working in a fast-changing environment. Products, tools, frameworks and processes change, we evolve and take the best bits with us. The teams drive the evolution.

What you’ll get from us 

  • Private medical (Luxmed)
  • Recharge days, 4 per year, 1 for each quarter 
  • Employer funded Multisport card
