Senior Mobile Developer

More photos have been taken this decade than in the rest of history! Rapid advances in mobile technology mean that over a trillion pictures are captured each year. Our client helps the photo industry stay ahead of the game.

They are looking for talented engineers to work with them to build solutions for some of the world's biggest brands, and millions of their customers. Over the last 12 years, they've grown a diverse client base that ranges from individual store owners, through high street chains to massive global corporations.

  • They have an open, honest and transparent culture

The company is looking for individuals committed to learning more of their trade and supporting each other's growth in the process. They still have a startup culture of openness to ideas and opportunities for talent to be put to good use, plus a market-tested and profitable product line. (The best of both worlds!)
