Software Engineer (Android)

Engineering

Tigerspike is an Apple Mobility Partner, AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, and one of the most recognised specialist enterprise mobility companies in the world.

We work on exciting projects and we’re looking for an Android Engineer, who enjoys a challenge, to join us.

You’ll work with talented and passionate people, who love what they do, in an informal, yet high energy office.

So, if you love technology, have a passion for innovation and thrive in a team-based environment then read on...

Tell me more!

We take our client's visions from concept to release in as little as eight weeks, and often work together to evolve products for years.

You’ll gain experience with industries that range from NGOs to Transport and have the opportunity to nurture products and see them through to completion and into maintenance.

Whilst many of our projects are native mobile apps and web apps, our goal is to stay at the forefront of innovation by applying design thinking to our client’s business problems.  That drive has led us to experiment with wearables, VR/AR, Machine Learning, and IoT devices (especially as enabled by the cloud). The clients we partner with range from boutique to multinational, whose users span from passengers in public transport around NSW to farmers and social workers.
