Does that sound like you?

About the role:

Historically our development’s been outsourced – we’ve recognised the huge benefit of an in-house team so we’re now looking for an experienced Android to help build, test and deliver high quality, robust mobile apps for our large user base of customers.

Retail is fast paced, challenging and exciting – and that applies to our development as well. We’re not dissimilar to a start-up within a large corporate. We’ll help you achieve the best work you can as a developer, but if you want to challenge the status quo there’s plenty of opportunity to interface not just with IT & Digital – but also marketing, buying, merchandising, retail…

This is a new team – barely 6 months old -  and so it's a great time to join and leave your stamp on how development is done at New Look under the guiding wing of our top technical lead.

Your day to day work will include:


We're interested in people who have:


Technical: You've got a firm understanding of the frameworks and technologies used for Android development including: Native Android including: Android Studio, Java, Kotlin, Espresso... Object orientated programming is a must, functional reactive programming a bonus (RxJava)

Test mentality: Experience of TDD/BDD methodologies, API Dev/Test tools such as Postman/Paw

Communication: You're comfortable not just in a tight development team - but also interfacing with designers, marketing, product (our buying, merchandise and design teams)

More technicals: Appreciation of design patterns and methodologies such as SOLID and Clean.

Experience of third party libraries and SDKs including analytics, push notification and payment gateways. You're familiar with Github, the Git Flow process or other similar...

Bonus if: Experience of customer facing retail apps, and you're not daunted by existing large user communities.... Think hundreds of thousands!
