  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to define, design, and ship new features across both Android and iOS platforms.
  • Continuously discover, evaluate, and implement new technologies to maximize development efficiency, particularly in a cross-platform context.
  • Manage the entire app lifecycle (concept, design, test, release, and support) for both Android and iOS versions.
  • Release applications to the Android Play Store and Apple App Store, overseeing their lifecycle across both platforms.

What you will accomplish within the first six months in this role:

  • Work directly with the engineering team to finalize requirements and architect a backend suitable for both Android and iOS applications.
  • Deliver a secure communication application, ensuring seamless operation and security on both platforms.

  • Strong understanding of both Android SDK and iOS frameworks, covering different versions and capabilities.
  • Experience with UI design principles and best practices for both Android and iOS applications.
  • Knowledge of the open-source ecosystems for both Android and iOS, and the libraries available for common tasks.
  • Familiarity with RESTful APIs to connect applications to back-end services, with an emphasis on cross-platform functionality.
  • Expertise in secure app design - based on a zero-trust model - and encryption standards applicable to both Android and iOS.
  • Strong knowledge of UI design principles, patterns, and best practices, tailored to each platform.
  • Experience with offline storage, threading, and performance tuning for both Android and iOS.
  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git, and Git CI/CD Pipelines, with experience in managing cross-platform development workflows.

Nice to Haves:
