Software Development Department
The software development department handles all aspects of delivery related to our custom software applications and services - everything that it takes to turn an idea into working software and delivering value to our users. The department is structured into cross-functional, self-organising teams that work together on projects, short and long, alongside product designers and key business stakeholders.
About The Role
We are looking for an experienced full time Senior Android Engineer, Software Development to join our new London-based cross-functional software development team, which will build the software that powers and improves our ability to deliver massive learning gains – at scale.

This person will join an elite, interdisciplinary team that will be building the technology that will take NewGlobe to the next level. It's a great opportunity to grow and learn, while working on developing software with a mission that few, if any, can compete with.
We believe in innovation, fast feedback, and high impact. We have an existing portfolio of native Android applications that undergird our ability to support self-sufficient academy management, engage the local community, and deliver high-quality education to our pupils. However, we need someone that can drive the next generation of these platforms, ensuring high availability even in challenging conditions and generally driving innovation in the mobile space. It's all about rolling up one's sleeves to introduce best practices, deliver key functionality, and pave the way for exciting future possibilities, like adaptive curriculums and automated grading of tests (to name just a few).
What You Will Do
Gather requirements, build, test, and ship new Android functionality for our academy tech platform

Especially published apps on Google Play
Full lifecycle experience, from conceptualisation to deployment to feedback from production
Experience with writing library projects that get reused across multiple android apps

Experience architecting whole Android applications, not just adding features or porting existing apps
Belief in the importance of automated unit, integration, and functional tests for Android apps
Exposure to continuous integration and continuous delivery practices, especially in an environment of weekly (or even more frequent) releases to production
Love for collaboration and working with driven stakeholders, including presenting work with confidence when interacting with business owners and users
Openness and eagerness for learning new paradigms and practices
Passion for NewGlobe's vision of democratising the right for all children to succeed
A detailed doer – You have a track record of getting things done. You’re organized and responsive. You take ownership of every idea you touch and execute it to a fine level of detail, setting targets, engaging others, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. You can multi-task dozens of such projects at once and never lose sight of the details. Likely, you have some experience in a start-up or other rapid-growth company.
A networking mastermind – You excel at meeting new people and turning them into advocates. You communicate in a clear, conscientious, and effective way in both written and oral speech. You can influence strangers in the course of a single conversation. Allies and colleagues will go to bat for your ideas. You have an existing network from prior experience in the country, preferably in the regulatory, education, or business sectors.
A creative problem-solver – Growing any business from scratch comes with massive and constant challenges. On top of that, NewGlobe works in often fragile, sometimes volatile low-resource communities and with complex government systems. You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand.
A relentless advocate –The children we serve and teachers we empower never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). You would never shrink back from shaking a parent’s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like. Every decision you make considers their benefit, experience, and value.
A malleable learner –You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others. You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you’ve missed things or failed today.
A curious investigator – You ask why a lot. You don’t just take what you see and accept it. You wonder why it is that way and are aware that the world we see is created by human choices and actions – and it could be different. You wonder and see the world as wonderful even when you want to change a part of it that is unjust.
Lead Software Engineer – Hybrid remote working offered
Cloud-based EdTech SaaS Scale-up
Up to £95,000
Every child deserves access to a good education, but not all areas have the resources or environment to provide one. But in 2022, that shouldn’t be the case, should it?
Thankfully, an EducationTech scale-up I’m partnered with have come up with a solution.
They’ve created a cloud-based digital learning platform that’s been optimised for low infrastructure environments with intermittent power and low network connectivity, that has drastically changed the fortunes of many children across the globe since their foundation in 2007.
This is important and fulfilling work indeed.
