Vacancy on Crete – Android Developer

Hester Gras

(Heraklion, Greece based)

Android developer – Full time

As an Android developer at ORTEC you will be part of a unique organisation and team!

We are currently seeking a full time Android mobile developer to join our team in Heraklion, Crete! Come and talk to us for an exciting opportunity at ORTEC For Communications (based in Amsterdam). You will work with a team of international developers and designers on creating innovative, user-central applications.

ORTEC for Communications started in 2011 and is a fast growing, innovative company. We help large organisations to optimise their internal communications, thereby increasing employee engagement. We provide a platform that allows companies to centrally manage their internal content and make it available to employees on a mobile app.

At ORTEC for Communications (O4C) we are currently in a state of transition. For 8 years we have built our apps in a cross-platform tool, called Appcelerator Titanium (javascript that compiles to native code). Last year, we decided to further optimise the end-user experience (performance, native functions) and improve long-term developer engagement by moving towards native development.

During the previous year we have worked very hard to create an iOS native version in Swift. This version was launched earlier this year and we are currently migrating our customers to this version.

Our next step is to transition the Android version (which is still using Titanium) to native Android (using Kotlin). As we want to make the transition period as short as possible, we are currently looking for an experienced developer that is interested to help build the Android version with us. This is where WE NEED YOUR HELP!
