Our client makes a personal navigation app that accurately guides and supports you anywhere; indoors and outdoors. The app makes life accessible to anyone including those with disabilities such as vision or mobility impairment.
You can explore the city, catch your bus, find your seat, go right to the aisle you want at the store, or get home from work - simply, quickly and independently. Designed to work for anyone and be easy to use, our app provides personal navigation with world-leading accuracy indoors and outdoors. Focused on a city’s transport network, streets and major buildings, our app gives step-by-step guidance as soon as you step out your door. It works anywhere we have a map.
We are looking to add an Android Developer to work remotely with the existing UK based team to further develop and own parts of the application. The work that you do will have a significant social impact.
What you will do:
Pair and work closely with other developers within an agile environment
Develop usable features with accessibility in mind both in terms of UI and UX
Develop algorithms to support customised routing and wayfinding instructions
Integrate real-time city-wide transit related information
Working remotely, you will need to provide own infrastructure sufficient to deliver the project including access to various Android phones for test and development.
The ideal candidate:
You will have experience in real-time processing with a good understanding of the limitations of the real-time and multi-threaded concepts on Android.
You understand core principles of navigation, mapping and routing.
Experience with 2D or 3D game engines on Android and mobile games development in general is particularly relevant.
You have experience developing applications that actively use voice and other accessibility features.
