Job Description

Flipp is a retail technology company that is reinventing the way people shop. We work with the largest retailers and manufacturers in the world to help them transform their business and connect them with tens of millions of shoppers through the next generation digital shopping marketplace.

Mobile is quickly becoming the preferred means to do your weekly shopping, as it uniquely enables our consumers to save time and money and focus on more important things like spending quality time with their family. We are looking for an Android Engineer to work within our Engineering team to design and develop features, fix bugs, review code, write and design automated tests for the Flipp Mobile app. This isn’t an average role where you are only responsible for one small piece of the company’s technology, but one where you’ll be able to make an huge impact from concept to release.

Most of the things you’ll work on:

  • Contribute to the team’s technical roadmap with ideas generated through practical development of the code in their area of expertise
  • Develop new features and improvements
  • Fix bugs and refactoring code to improve Flipp internal and open source packages
  • Design and write automated unit test cases
  • Contribute to the design of software systems and services
  • Mentor Junior, Intern and Co-op developers, helping them to develop their technical abilities

You’ll need to have:

  • Bachelor’s degree (Computer Science or Engineering preferred), or strong software development background
  • 3+ Years of solid professional programming experience with Java. If you’ve worked with Kotlin, that would also be an asset to the team.
  • Understanding of large and complex code bases, including API design techniques
  • A keen sense for user experience, and a passion for ensuring the user comes first.
  • Track record of developing and launching Apps on the Play Store, and working to iterate and improve them.
  • Flipp has always been an organization that has never been happy with the status quo and we are looking for someone that will always look for ways to make us better in any way possible

Here’s how we work:

From working with top technologies to sending you to industry-leading conferences, we will make sure you have all that you need to expand your knowledge and grow your career. We have a trust-based culture where all team members are empowered to work in the way that’s best for them to thrive.

Our culture is at the center of all that we do, and it has been recognized through numerous accolades over the past three years including: Best Workplaces in Canada, Deloitte 50 Best Managed, Best Workplaces in Canada for Women, Most Admired CEO and Top 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures.

Here’s how to apply:
