We are looking for Senior level resources to build out two new project teams on the Android platform:

Senior Android Developer / Mentor - Core Libraries and Infrastructure

We are looking to build out two core teams of senior Android consultants to help our customer - a global healthcare software provider - shape their new platform and products.   The work is long term - we have been building the client's iOS apps for the past year, and now they are looking for us to direct their Android initiatives.

The product is an innovative Android app, running on custom ruggedized Android devices.  At this stage, no NDK or Android OS customization is expected, but the skills are a plus as we look forward to define future products.

The team environment is agile, very startup-like and casual.   The products they are building are innovative and will push the boundaries of the platform. You will be working with very smart and experienced peers, but you will be at the core of a small Android team.

For the Senior Android Developer/Mentor - Core Libraries and Infrastructure positions,you will contribute code to the core Android libraries and components, including developing the authentication, versioning and provisioning base SDK, setup the automated UI testing framework, mentor developers new to the Android platform, help the team make the correct technical architecture decisions, and shape the future of the Android team.  You will serve in a core contributor and mentor role on a small, newly created team of developers new to Android. They are otherwise highly experienced and skilled resources with a track record of picking up new languages and platforms and learning from mistakes quickly.

For the Senior Android Developer/Lead - Mobile App UI positions, you will work with their evolving core Android libraries and components to develop the upcoming Android app, mentor developers new to the Android platform, take charge and provide direction to junior and mid-level resources, help make the correct technical architecture decisions and shape the future of the Android team.

Our client is located in Kansas City, MO, home of Google Fiber and the Startup Village.  Consultants who need to travel will have their travel expenses covered, and be allowed to work one day per week remotely, and after two months of service they will be allowed to work one week per month remotely.
