Careers

Android Engineer

You’re looking for the next step in your career, a way to improve the quality of your code, and a place to explore engaging projects? We’re looking for you!

TL:DR; Our team is growing and hiring an Android Engineer, to help us build high-quality apps and come up with innovative solutions.

We’re looking for a developer with some knowledge of Java, Kotlin, and Android ecosystems and libraries. They’ll be working on international projects and turn clients’ ideas into full-fledged, engaging applications.


Ars Futura is a remote-friendly software design and development agency based in Zagreb. At the moment, we have 50-ish laid-back, young, and dedicated people. They are split into multi-disciplinary teams, working on long-term projects of all sizes, for clients based in the United States. Our clients come from various industries and, just to name a few, we’ve worked with MLG, Blizzard, and Harvard.

Our Android team currently has 4 members, one cooler than the other. They work on projects for esports, 3D audio representation, machines used by Apple and Uber in their office spaces, reading engines, and more.

We’re always proud of what we build and hope you’ll come and build great things with us!

📚 Things you have to know

Before we get into the detail, there are a few things we expect you have:

  • 2+ years of professional experience with Android SDK
  • good knowledge of Java/Kotlin
  • an understanding of programming practices and fundamentals outside of the Android ecosystem (programming paradigms, networking, etc.)
  • an understanding of MVVM architecture (or some other like MVI or MVP)
  • familiarity with Git, continuous integration, and deployment
  • experience working with modern infrastructure and tools
  • experience with writing tests
  • good knowledge of English.

🔧 Knowing the technical stuff

On most of our projects, we work with Kotlin and Java so it would be great if you had some experience with these programming languages. Knowledge of Android SDK and familiarity with continuous integration is a big plus. But, if you aren’t familiar with them, we’re here to help.

We’re hoping you know how to handle Android UI design principles and patterns because you’ll have to create code based on wireframes and designs. We also hope you understand Google’s Android design principles and interface guidelines.

🛳️ Writing & shipping quality code

Once we put you on a project, we rely on you to design, build, and maintain its code. You should be able to create code that is testable, reliable, and can be reused if needed. We count on you to create apps that are responsive and perform great.

🔎 Code review

Although the responsibility of a project lies with you, you are not alone! Your coworkers will help you, review your code, and give you valuable continuous feedback on your work. We expect you to do the same for them. There are many processes we implemented to help the review so be ready to cooperate with your team members.

🙌 Teamwork

Our Android team isn’t big. It is relaxed, friendly, and welcoming so we’re sure you’ll get along with everybody. You should expect a fair amount of teamwork and giving out a helping hand on projects when your coworkers need it. There’s a thank-you-beer in it for you tho’! So, we’re looking for someone who works well with others and has no problem being a part of a team.
