Senior Android Developer

We are looking for an experienced Android developer to join our team in Amsterdam.

Who are we?

We are the DEUS initiative, and we are all about exploring AI in the service of humanity. No, we are not calling ourselves gods(!), but our name is a reference to ‘deus ex machina’ (god from the machine in latin). We believe that artificial intelligence technologies such as machine learning, computer vision and natural language processing will have a massive impact on the way we live, and we want to make sure that we create a positive impact on the world with these AI services.

As a happy coincidence, DEUS is also an acronym representing the 4 key disciplines we believe are important to building successful AI services: Data / Engineering / User-experience design / Strategy.

DEUS is a new initiative, but the founders have been working together for years so there is a family feel to the company. We have a beautiful office right in the historical central canals of Amsterdam.

Who are you?

  • you love to write clean structured code
  • you enjoy learning about new Android technologies
  • you know how to create efficient and eye catching pixel perfect user interfaces
  • you automate the mundane tasks so more time can be spent on the fun stuff
  • you enjoy rising to the challenge and even more overcoming it
  • you like seeing the positive feedback on the play store page from those using your app, but also fixing the issues others might have
  • you like working in a team, sharing knowledge, mentoring the juniors
  • you have worked or are interested to work with ML Kit

Some of the tasks you might be doing in this role:

  • Work closely with the Mobile Architects, UX/UI Designers and other team members
  • Setup and improve CICD pipeline
  • Work with the business to gather requirements and specifications
  • Squeeze every last drop of performance out of your applications through benchmarking and optimisation

...and some more points:

  • Excellent written and verbal English is the only core requirement, but Dutch and any other languages are always a bonus
  • We will provide top hardware [macbook pro etc] and the latest software – we use the right tools for the job.
  • note: If you don’t feel that you perfectly fit the description above, but you have some other background or skillset that you think could be of interest, please still get in touch!

We are dedicated to making a friendly and inclusive workplace. To put it bluntly, there is an unwritten ‘no assholes’ policy that applies to both ourselves and our clients, as we always want to enjoy our team dynamic. We do trips, conferences and events together on a regular basis, and we are always committed to cultivating a company that embraces differences. We strongly believe in flexibility, and you will be given a lot of freedom while translating complicated problems into easy-to-use products. This means managing your own priorities, trying out new things and working a flexible hours’ scheme.

If this all sounds interesting to you, then please contact us via talent@deus.ai with your portfolio or a link to some examples of your work, and a CV. We would love to hear from you 🙂
