Mobile Developer

Aberdeen | £45,000 - £70,000 | Permanent

Published: 10.03.23 Ref: BBBH41208_1678439485

A well-established software company in Aberdeen is looking for a Mobile Developer to come in a re-develop their mobile app. The company have been around for years now and have had a mobile app for years as well. It's used by their clients and is completely functional, but they feel like it's the right time to revamp and improve it.

Up to this point, the Software Developers in the team have been maintaining things as best as possible and have done their best to patch things up whenever necessary, but without having a specialist Mobile Developer to lead the way with it the feel like it should really be re-developed. With this, they'd like to bring in a specialist Mobile Developer to lead and deliver the project.

The current app is built in native Xamarin, but they think that they'd be better going down the route of a cross-platform app using the likes of Xamarin, React Native or Flutter. Obviously with the app being cross-platform, the need someone that has experience across both Android and iOS. They are super flexible on which tech someone decides to go for - they care more about someone that has proven experience of delivering excellent mobile apps in the past. You'll have the opportunity to come in and take full control of the project and do things in the way you'd like which obviously makes a super exciting role for the right person.

The good thing is that you'll still have the support of the 5 or 6 people within the tech team but will be expected to take control of the design, architecture, development and delivery of the app. You'll be able to interact and get feedback from the client, so the app meets the users needs as well which is ideal. With that in mind, they're looking for someone that is at more of a senior level and someone that has strong people / stakeholder management skills along with the tech skills.

The company is based in Aberdeen and are ideally looking for someone to come up to the office once every month - they could potentially be flexible on this, but it'd be ideal for them if someone could. They can pay up to around £70,000 for the role dependent on someone's experience, potentially more for someone that is the perfect fit.

If you're an experienced cross-platformed Mobile Developer that wants to take ownership of re-developing the mobile app of an established software company, then please apply and/or get in touch with Jack Steven at Cathcart Technology.

Our clients


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

Data Scientist – Manchester

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

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

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

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

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

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.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

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

Software Engineer – Manchester

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

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

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

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

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

Software Developer – Northampton
