Job description
“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” Steve Jobs

The above quote is so very often true, and yet mobile and technical teams are so often segregated. No more…

Can Factory are building a new in-house mobile team to help us in the continuing challenge of pushing the limits of what is possible. So often we work with external mobile contractors whose focus can be very much around the individual project. We want to build a mobile capability that can learn to leverage the true skills of our highly experienced developers. Our existing mobile apps are built in either Swift for iOS or Java for Android.

We have an amazing group of developers with decades of experience of pushing the boundaries of sites such as Red Nose Day, ITV, Cineworld, VOX Cinemas and many more. We want to bring a joint mobile / technical team together. That team need to continuously learn from each other and figure out where we can push things to the edge to get the best possible solution for our clients.

We are often in control of the back office as well as the mobile apps, so some experience of Java and RESTful API’s would be extremely useful. Naturally we heavily use git and AWS to manage and deploy our solutions, so a good understanding of those or similar technologies is required. All of the existing team have experience and regularly use Xcode, Android Studio and IntellJ to develop in.

You will be working in direct partnership with a very experienced team on both new and existing projects, including a large international entertainment clients across multiple platforms. The role requires gathering design / business requirements from clients and then analysing, designing and implementing bespoke solutions. If you are someone who thrives in small team-orientated environments, and you are passionate about developing high quality mobile solutions, then this is the place for you.

You can see some of our latest work on the VOX Cinemas website and mobile apps. VOX are a multiplex based in various regions and came to us to build an entire multilingual, multi-currency back office, website and suite of mobile apps to delight their customers. Check out their website for a taster.

The core management team have come from large full service agencies and so have experience of running mixed skilled teams to get the best results for every project. If you genuinely care about good mobile development, as well as a good solution behind it, then drop us a line.

We believe that everyone in the team has a voice and we all work directly with clients to shape the final solutions that we are proud to deliver. If you want to be part of a team that makes a difference and has control over their path, then you’ve come to the right place.
