Published: 02.05.24 Ref: BBBH47018_1714649122

A well-known energy provider in Glasgow is looking for an Android Engineer to join their team. The company are one of the leaders in the drive towards completely Green Energy and you'll have the opportunity to work in a team that has a pivotal role in that.

Over the last couple years, they've re-structured their teams to give everyone a lot more autonomy and opportunity to progress and are now bulking out the squads as part of this. The team builds web and mobile applications for internal use as well as externally for their customers. They are well-known for having a very strong engineering culture, good processes and have high standards in their work.

What will I be doing?

Great question!

Most of the work you'll be doing will be on the main Android customer facing application. They have some impressive new projects which you'll be able to get involved in from the start. They work mostly with Kotlin these days and are looking for someone to have experience in Kotlin. They will consider people that are more experienced in Java but Kotlin is highly favourable. Any experience with Reactive programming, testing and/or experience with CI/CD would be a big bonus as well.

The company love people that are eager to learn and can you give you the opportunity to cross-train in other areas such as iOS Development, Front End Development, Back End Development and more.

Who am I?

It's obviously pretty essential that you've come sort of Android Development background, ideally working with Kotlin.

Away from their excellent engineering culture, the company work very collaboratively and look for people that fit in well with that. There is a lot of autonomy in the role, but they do like people that aren't afraid to work through problems with their colleagues as well. As previously mentioned, they like people that are keen on continuing to expand their skillset so if that's you then it could be a great fit. They also like people that keep up to date with new technologies and if it makes sense for the business, they're more than happy for you to try and introduce these.

Who will I be working with?

As mentioned, they've done a lot of restructuring and moved into smaller squads, giving you a lot more opportunity to influence things. Teams work in squads that include Developers, Testers, Product Owners, Engineering Managers, Designers and more. You'll obviously work closely with the rest of Mobile team as well.

How much will I be getting paid and where will I be based?

You'll probably want to know this before applying...

There is a salary on offer up to £60,000 for the Android Developer role. At the moment they're ideally looking for people at least at mid-level and the salary they offer will be dependent on your level of experience. They have a really strong benefits package which includes a strong pension, up to 10% performance related bonus and much more. The company's office is in Glasgow City Centre and ideally, they'd like people to come in once a week.

If you're an experienced Android Engineer that is passionate about Green Energy, then please apply and/or get in touch with Jack Steven at Cathcart Technology.

Our clients


It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.
