Mobile App Developer

We are looking for an experienced app developer that can rapidly build a proof of concept app to demonstrate to the business the value our learners would gain from learning through a mobile app. Beyond the proof of concept, the aim is to make this a production product with continued development and customisation.

Job Description

We are looking for a strong mobile app developer who welcomes both engineering and maintenance tasks. The initial focus will be to build and customise a custom mobile app based on Moodle, an open source learning platform.  The app source code is in Git and we require someone to build this, customise for our organisation and then publish to app store (Android and iOS).  As part of this you will be required to define and implement code branching, promotion etc.  Finally, you will be required to review the app and report back to the CIO on the ease of extending and developing new features. Ultimately this will lead to a decision on whether we build from scratch or continue to build on the Moodle base.

You will be working with our candid and collaborative team, where your knowledge and advice about application architecture and the newest mobile technologies will be highly appreciated. The code you write will need to be cleanly organized and of the highest quality, You’ll also help ensure solid application performance and an excellent user experience.

Skills required as many as possible:

  • Extensive knowledge about mobile app development. This includes the whole process, from the first line of code to publishing in the store(s)
  • Deep knowledge of Apple & Android
  • Proficiency with setting up and writing automated tests
  • Familiarity with RESTful APIs and mobile libraries for networking
  • Familiarity with the JSON format
  • Experience with IonicCLI or PhoneGap
  • Experience with profiling and debugging mobile applications
  • Strong knowledge of architectural patterns—MVP, MVC, MVVM, and Clean Architecture—and the ability to choose the best solution for the app
  • Familiarity with Git, node.js, Cordova
  • Familiarity with push notifications
  • The back end system is built in PHP so experience in PHP development is advantageous
  • Understanding mobile app design guidelines on each platform and being aware of their differences
  • Proficiency in HTML/CSS/Javascript/IonicCLI/PhoneGap

Some of the below would also be really helpful to have:  

  • Developing new features and user interfaces from wireframe models
  • Ensuring the best performance and user experience of the application
  • Fixing bugs and performance problems
  • Writing clean, readable, and testable code
  • Cooperating with back-end developers, designers, and the rest of the team to deliver well-architected and high-quality solutions
  • Setting up development processes (branching, deployment etc)
  • Analysis of application and reporting on its developability

Please do get in touch and we can discuss futher.
