  • Work as part of a scrum team in an agile environment


  • 1-3 years experience as an iOS and/or Android app developer
  • Experience with Android SDK, Cocoa Touch, and back-end languages (Objective-C or Swift, Java)
  • Experience testing mobile apps, popular Android/iOS devices, SDKs and/or APIs
  • Experience using code repositories and CI tools, such as Git, Jenkins, Maven, Cocoapods, Gradle, or similar
  • Skilled in analyzing requirements & acceptance criteria, determining new test cases that should be created and identifying regression test cases to be updated
  • Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering, Computer Science or equivalent
