Lead Android Developer

Job description

We are looking for a lead Android developer

We would like our new team mate to live and breathe app development, and to be someone who wants to take part in a fun and challenging start-up journey. We are a small and transparent team. We value skill, talent and experience but even more so attitude, fearlessness and willingness to learn and evolve. We offer an opportunity to play a key role with a clear influence in developing our Android app to its fullest potential. As a lead developer you will also be a part of shaping our service as a whole during our international expansion.


We will transition our Android app from React Native into Kotlin. So, there are still many clean slates that are waiting to be architected and constructed in native code. For the right developer this is a huge opportunity to lay down a new solid foundation for a thriving international market place service. The team will help you to gradually get up to speed and to grow into the platform, as we together establish our future Android app.

What it is like to work at Tiptapp

  • We have a collaborative decision making process with lots of workshops.
  • Our processes and our software are set up for remote work. But if you are in the Stockholm area, we have also some space at WeWork. Barring some occasional visit to HQ, you can be 100% remote. We currently have a hybrid team where some are fully remote, some go to our shared office a few days a week.
  • Working hours are mostly flexible, but we have some synchronous work around 10–15 CET, so your timezone should not be too far away.
  • We take a yearly trip together (optional of course, but fun!).


  • Pension plan.
  • 30 days vacation.
  • Stay-healthy subsidy (5000 SEK/year).
  • Flexible work hours with possibility to work remotely.
  • Work with a team that is obsessed with innovation and iteration.
  • Be part of a company that has real impact on the environment and society.


We would like to get in touch with developers who

  • have solid knowledge of mobile app development,
  • have 3+ years of experience with native development on Android (Kotlin/Java),
  • have a proven track record of taking full responsibility of a platform,
  • are based in the European time zone.

Even better if you have

  • hands on experience with React Native,
  • good skills in JavaScript (ES6+),
  • experience with Node.js, MongoDB and/or AWS,
  • a passion for UX / design.

Tiptapp—the new way of delivering things

Our plattform matches you in real-time with other users who have time to spare and extra space in their vehicle. They give your things a ride from A to B. You get instant help with deliveries and small moves, in-store purchasing, as well as help recycling items of any size.

Our marketplace makes everyday life easier and reduces the need for owning your own car. Smarter ride-sharing and reuse of items also translates into less waste and saved resources in our cities.

Tiptapp launched in Stockholm in 2016 and is backed by prominent marketplace investors. We have over 200,000 users in the Stockholm area alone, and we are currently rolling out in London and testing the service in Portugal. More metropolitan areas around the world will follow. We have global ambitions and a ton of things to do so we need more talented people to join the team!
