Intro

So, coding is your passion, right? And now it just happens that you lead a team of developers too.

However, you didn’t let your programming skills go rusty and are still great at writing code. Why? Because you love coding.

We know that finding a role that balances between coding and leading your own team can be challenging. Well, at FREE NOW we have it.

As the Lead Android Engineer, you will act as a coach for your team in order to help them with their weaknesses and foster their strengths. You will also set their goals and motivate them to achieve these.

Being part of an agile interdisciplinary team, you will also work closely with our Product Department in Hamburg to lead the development of your chapter.

You will be responsible for the development of a high-quality product capable to stand our fast growth and evolution. And all this, while you code!

Is it challenging? Of course.

Is it fun? Absolutely!

FREE NOW encourages a strong team spirit and simple company culture. Our teams organise themselves in established agile working environments. People at FREE NOW work flexibly and independently. Every single employee is a part of our success story and so, open communication and a fair feedback culture come naturally to us.

We are passionate problem-solvers who listen and understand before we act. By working together – with each other, customers, drivers and cities - we make things better. Besides a lot of fun and potential to make a real difference, you will have the opportunity to work with the best team in the world (we know, everybody says so, but at FREE NOW it’s true)!
