About

BackMarket is the number one European (and soon global) marketplace specializing in the sale of fully refurbished tech devices.

Job Description

Back Market is the world’s leading refurbished electronics marketplace with a team of more than 650, powering operations in 16 countries (and counting!).

Back Market is undergoing meteoric growth and has raised $884 million, with a valuation of $5.7 billion. Our mission is simple: empowering people to buy tech sustainably by offering folks a high quality, accessible, and more eco-friendly alternative to buying new electronics. Why? Refurbished tech helps lower our collective environmental impact.

Be part of a great and growing adventure that will change the way the world consumes tech.

For the next few years, we have exciting ambitions. That’s why we are looking for iOS & Android engineers who are inspired by developing a great m-commerce app, with an optimized and advanced user experience. We want to go further than just display products.

We are looking for an Android Senior II Engineer to work inside the App Core squad, which is in charge of guaranteeing the quality & scale of our Android platform. 

With the growth of Android engineers at Back Market, you will participate in making our Android platform efficient: architecture scalability, elevating the Android developer experience, efficient CI/CD pipelines & app performances. It will be a great opportunity to evangelize the best-in-class in Android engineering and help to grow the teams & app features.

Thanks to your engineering skills, you will also take part in a mobile engineering chapter, with talented iOS, Android, and QA mobile engineers. You will learn, share, and improve altogether.

Whether you're hooked on Kotlin, developing advanced UI with motion, or purely Core architecture, you will work efficiently and you will favor collaborative work by remaining open to new ideas.

This is who you are:

  • You are an engineer with more than 10 years of experience on Android, with some apps released on Google Play or B2B,
  • You know how to build native applications using Kotlin with solid architecture and cutting (MVVM, MVP, or similar),
  • You are using advanced programming: Kotlin coroutines or flows, you started to implement JetPack Compose,
  • You can work daily with Git, using Git-flow and writing clean Pull Requests,
  • You understand and can contribute to the maintenance and evolution of the continuous integration stack: Bitrise, Crashlytics, Firebase App Distribution, Github Actions, etc.
  • With the entire team, you follow and maintain the app monitoring: KPIs, logs, crash reporting, boards,
  • You continually maintain technical and functional exchanges with the iOS team 🍎, because it is possible and necessary 💚,
  • You take part in the meetups, and lectures of the community and you document yourself through blog articles to keep you up to date (Medium, PAUG, Google I/O, etc.), 
  • You’ve got some favorite repositories that you use as a reference for best practices,
  • You like to develop beautiful interfaces and fluid animations while respecting the Android guidelines (however, without being too rigid on those principles),
  • You’ve experienced some code or module with Kotlin Mobile Multiplatform
  • You’re disappointed that Google let down the desert names for Android versions.
  • WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN US ?

    • A meaningful job: through hard work, you will help avoid thousands of tons of electronic waste and fight against planned obsolescence. It counts!

    • An attractive salary, equity, multiple benefits (meal tickets, health insurance, etc...), parental benefits, #remote friendly company, relocation package, internal events, etc… 

    • Technical challenges all day every day: you will have the freedom to innovate and adopt new ideas!

    • Work with passionate experts who will share their knowledge and help you develop and grow! (Backademy, technical guilds, Meet-up & Conference) 

    • Grow your career with a flexible career path, BackMarket can help you evolve!

    • A booming scale-up: our environment is rapidly growing in Europe, the USA and soon in Asia!

    • A lot of fun: you will have the opportunity to work in a fast-paced, open-minded and friendly environment.
