Experienced Android developer

Salary Competitive

At Donkey Republic we believe that sustainable mobility should be available to everyone. We do this by providing an affordable bike rental service across Europe in more than 70 cities. We work closely with cities and lawmakers to help transform cities into more livable places.


We are looking for an experienced Android developer

Our native iOS and Android apps represent our most important customer touchpoints, and we work hard to create the best user experience. We expect you to be driven by the wish to give our riders a great experience. This involves understanding the rider's needs which you will work closely with our designer, PO, and team of developers to accomplish. You should be curious about new technologies and we expect you to be quick to adapt to new ways of doing things, but you should also have the ability to understand when a new technology isn’t a good investment in terms of helping our riders. At Donkey Republic we not only work with making great UX/UI and service design, but we also build our own actual hardware. Software is what ties it all together. So if you are up for these challenges, Donkey Republic is the place for you.


What your job will be

You will team up with our skilled product team which consists of two more Android developers, two iOS developers, two backend developers, a Product Owner, and a UX Designer. We work closely together in the group to ship features fast, but each developer has a high degree of freedom in bringing their own solutions to the table. You and the other Android developers are solely responsible for bringing the Android apps to the market and ensuring high quality through code reviews and good testing. You will implement features, bug fixes and participate in design workshops on equal foot with the rest of the group.


Who you are

We expect you to have at least a few years of experience. You should be self-driven enough to take responsibility for the app, while also caring about the overall performance of the team. You should:

  • Have experience with developing apps integrated with a backend through a RESTful API

  • Have a good knowledge of basic design patterns

  • Have experience with source control, preferably Git

  • Have experience with writing unit/integration tests


Bonus points for:

  • Experience with more advanced concepts like reactive programming and Coroutines

  • Experience with Bluetooth Low Energy

  • Experience with continuous integration tools

  • Having worked in a startup before

  • Loving bikes - we surely do!


Super-extra-bonus points for:

  • Experience with screenshot testing

  • Kotlin Multiplatform


Here are some of the things we use in our app:

  • Kotlin

  • Realm.io

  • Reactive Programming (Rx)

  • Coroutines

  • Retrofit 2

  • Koin

  • And a lot more


At the end of the day, we will pick you because you can prove to have brought apps to the market, enjoy testing things out, and are willing to risk that it might fail, prioritize teamwork over individual performance, and connect with the mission that we are on.


What we offer

  • A spot in the team of an inspiring startup, that is growing at a rapid pace

  • A job where achieving our vision is as important as creating a bright future for each team member. We enjoy mindful risk-taking, experimenting with features, getting things done fast, and seeing the results of our daily work out there in the real world, where we ultimately help people move easier and explore better - on two wheels.

  • We also offer a flexible work schedule, a collective of people that have lots of fun together, and a really cool office in central Copenhagen. Please note that there also is an opportunity to work remotely

Working at
Donkey Republic

In 2015, we created an electronic lock and an automated self-service bike-sharing system in a Copenhagen home basement. Since then, we’ve been taking that system on a ride around the world, while aiming to turn the bicycle into the hero of public transportation and a catalyst for greener, more liveable and less traffic-congested cities. Today, Donkey Republic is a global bike-share service. Our vision is to create a better world by making sustainable mobility available to everyone. Currently, we have +13,000 bikes on the platform in +60 cities in 14 countries. The Donkey Republic app allows riders to find a bike nearby in many cities around the world, rent it, and unlock with the app 24/7. More than 8 million trips were taken on our bikes by close to 1 million riders. We are an international company with a strong team of dedicated cycling enthusiasts who work hard, challenge each other and learn fast to come up with innovative ways to solve today’s urban mobility challenges. Join the Donkey Squad. Every ride counts.
