Mobile Team Lead (iOS or Android)

Job description

Are you ready impact things right from the beginning? Do you see your code affecting hundreds of thousands of end users? Do you want to influence where mobile development goes at our rapidly growing startup? Read on, you might be our new Mobile Team Lead Developer.

Who are we?

We are Safened – a fast-growing FinTech scaling up, motivated by a vision to turn financial risk and regulatory challenges into simple and secure solutions. Simple, because we reduce complexity and offer easy-to-integrate solutions to financial institutions and platform businesses. Secure, because we enable our partners to use the world's most stable asset classes while protecting them from fraud, risk and identity theft.


That sounds like quite a mouthful, right? Don’t worry, we’re happy to explain it in more detail down the line. For now, just rest assured that we do cool stuff and it’s going well. And we operate globally, with offices in London, New York, Amsterdam, and Barcelona. To get a feeling for the atmosphere here, you can check out this video:



Your mission at Safened

While we are innovating banking solutions, your mission is to help build and then run the mobile team, always making sure our code is elegant, well-documented, and secure.

  • You write well-tested and easily maintainable code yourself, truly leading by example
  • You help establishing the new team for mobile
  • You cultivate a team culture that is based on documenting everything with diligence
  • You work with our product owners to implement new features...
  • ...and improve the quality of what’s there already (Goal: Get rid of the Objective-C/Java leftovers)
  • You ensure everyone collaborates effectively in code reviews and general discussions
  • You truly own your tasks, adapt to changing requirements, and you think strategically about code and the team.

You will be working on our SDK that is part of our Know-Your-Customer (KYC) solution for digital onboarding. Our clients already include leading names in global finance and we are growing rapidly: The number of users in touch with the code you will work is in the hundreds of thousands (and likely even millions) within the next year alone.

Requirements

Boxes you definitely tick:

  • You got 5+ years of professional experience with mobile development (or more)
  • You have expert knowledge of iOS (Swift) or Android (Kotlin) and at least decent knowledge of the other
  • You have experience leading small teams (3-6 people)
  • You see unit testing as important 
  • You have superb communication skills in English
  • You already live in Amsterdam or within commuting distance

You get extra points if...

  • You are a Git power-user and are no stranger to using it with a structured branching and releasing strategy
  • You worked on libraries/frameworks before
  • You are security-minded and were involved with apps for banking or similar
  • You maybe even did some pen testing before
  • You have Dutch and/or Spanish language skills

What you get from us:

At Safened, we care about attracting and retaining excellent people. That's why we offer...

  • The chance to join this amazing journey of explosive growth with excellent financial backing
  • A competitive salary and pension in place
  • 25 days of vacation to recharge your batteries
