Lead Mobile Engineer

At AND, we accelerate the development of digital capabilities. In practice, that means helping ambitious leaders and organisations build the teams, products, processes and even operational structures they need to close the digital skills gap within their organisation today, so that they thrive tomorrow.

Clients rely on our experience, agility and craft skills across tech and business strategy, software development and product management to address some of the toughest challenges facing their businesses.

We bring aboard thinkers, tinkerers, passionate software craftspeople and inspiring technologists to help us solve these challenges. Together, we’re united by a sense of pragmatism, purpose and a deeply-held belief that digital products and technology alone won’t transform a business or save the world: it’s the people that count.

As a Lead Mobile Engineer, you’ll act as a hands-on senior technical subject matter expert working across a Club’s portfolio of mobile app clients, on-site and in multi-skilled agile delivery teams. As a result, you will need to be able to:

  • Use your expert mobile tech knowledge to influence the direction of projects whilst coaching and up-skilling a development team through implementing engineering best practices.

  • Be hands on with development teams where appropriate, understand what good code looks like and constantly keep the bigger picture in mind in order to make the best architectural decisions for our clients.

  • Engage with your Club’s developer community to help up-skill others and provide feedback that will help improve the Club’s software engineering capability as a whole.

  • Lead on making decisions on which mobile technology to use for any given project, using your all-round mobile expertise to ensure that a client’s app is built using the most appropriate technology for their requirements, skill-set and capability.

  • Use your extensive mobile development experience to provide technical input to client work proposals and be prepared to present this to client stakeholders.

  • Assist in managing the delivery of one or more mobile projects.

To do that, it’s essential you bring the following:

  • An expert-level knowledge of either native iOS or Android development, with a working knowledge in the other.

  • A working knowledge and interest in the cross-platform mobile solutions landscape, the advantages and disadvantages that each offer, and ideally some hands-on experience working with the more popular frameworks.

  • An expert understanding of the iOS and Android app release processes.

  • Experience working across several development teams and architecture teams to ensure that dependencies are delivered on time and fit for use in mobile apps.

  • Experience defining and developing mobile CI/CD pipelines.

  • Experience leading a development team from the inception of the team to the delivery of a product

  • Experience presenting technical solutions, strategies and updates at board level, and being accountable for the overall technical quality of a mobile project.

From the work we deliver, to the way we serve and support our people, we work hard to ensure that there’s nowhere quite like AND. But joining a company is a two-way street: the fit has to work on both sides. So before you apply, here’s three key things to understand about us:

  • We’re built for people - like, real humans. Not ‘resources’ or ‘staff’. That means happiness and wellbeing really do matter to us, and we hate unnecessary hierarchy and bureaucracy.

  • There’s no well-trodden path ahead: AND is growing fast and forging a new trail. That’s exciting, and gives us all the autonomy and opportunity we love - but bear in mind it also demands focus, patience and resilience.

  • Diversity is a priority. After all, to build great products that a wide variety of different people love to use, we need a wide variety of people to help us build them. So diversity is more than a policy or a word: it’s business critical for us.
