Android + Web Developer

AppColony is looking for someone with Android development experience, who is familiar with Java based Android development and the maintenance and deployment of native apps. The Android apps for our flagship product, MakeShift, are stable and may require variable amounts of developer time. Because of this, our ideal candidate has experience working with other technologies outside of Android and would be willing to learn and work with us on the rest of the stack (Rails, JavaScript, iOS, Elixir/Phoenix, AWS).

This is an intermediate to senior role and we’re hoping to see at least a few years of real working experience.

The successful applicant will be expected to work a 40-hour week (typically 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, or similar). This is not a remote role. We would like someone to join us in our Victoria, BC office.


  • Develop features for and maintain native Android apps for the MakeShift platform.
    • Ensure apps build and adapt to new releases of Android
    • Fix reported bugs
    • Adding features and enhancements
    • Automated testing
    • Deployment and release through Google Play
  • Willingness to learn and work with our full-stack web devs on the rest of the stack when time permits (Rails, JavaScript, Elixir/Phoenix, AWS)
  • Use GitHub, Confluence and JIRA to document and track progress
  • Think creatively with the rest of the team to solve problems and make the product better

Bonus Points

  • Experience with our stack outside of Android is a major bonus
  • You’re active on GitHub or StackOverflow or otherwise have something out there that we can look at
  • You’ve worked on a SaaS product with many active users who expect a high level of reliability


  • Relaxed environment with a good team that enjoys what they do
