Job description

Missions :

Our Client:  Our client is a leading Mobile App development company that is creating a buzz.  It’s top-preferred consumer apps are globally recognized, along with its transformative enterprise apps and world-first learning platforms. Our client has created 250+ apps used by over 75 million people around the world; in 2014, the company was also named one of North America’s Technology Fast 500


Our Client is doing a passive search for an outstanding, experienced individual for the position of Sr. Android Developer, to undertake this key role in Calgary. To qualify for this position, interested candidates will first have to undergo telephone vetting with us at Clearport and then with our Client, then do an online test provided by our Client, and finally undergo interviews with our Client.  This is a passive search, not for immediate hire – selected Candidate would start in a 1 to 3-month period.


This position is aimed at a career-minded individual who seeks a challenging opportunity and to be part of dynamic, growing and winning team.  The right individual can capitalize on our Client's standard practice of offering strong performers continuous room for growth, autonomy to make decisions, and support for professional development.


Position Overview: You are someone who prefers to communicate through code.  You love to create and have a strong desire to learn. You have strong opinions but that are weakly held; you are humble yet confident. In fact, you’re the first to pass along the latest headache busting library from Square to your colleagues just minutes after sending a link to a mind-clarifying blog post.


You can speak to language best practices and are not afraid of anonymous inner-classes. You never overlook the saved instance state and have contemplated the trade-offs between activities, fragments and views. You have knowledge of how a RESTful web service works, what makes it RESTful and how it can be accessed from Android. You are also diligent about meeting allocated budgets and can work within time constraints, but you will never sacrifice quality.

•        Support Sales and Project Managers with technical insights, leading to the creation of budgets and schedules for projects.
