Master of Mobile Development and Design

We're looking for a Master of Mobile Development and Design to help us strengthen our presence in mobile website building.

 

About Jimdo

Jimdo offers people the possibility of creating a website with no coding knowledge whatsoever.

 

Jimdo's strengths include ease of use (many of our users would've never dreamed they could build a website on their own), flexible designs (it's easy to create a unique looking website), and the simple interface that makes it possible for anyone to add photos, videos, and text to their websites. People around the world have already built more than 10 million Jimdo sites, and we're still growing. 

 

We're an extremely motivated team with a lot of smart people who work hard and have fun together. Everyone is an expert in his or her own field, and our goal is to create the best possible service for everyone who uses Jimdo. Our small company would offer you the freedom to explore and refine your own great ideas. 

This position is full-time and located at our headquarters in Hamburg.

 

Responsibilities

We've already built a very successful iOS app, which was listed as one of Apple's Best of 2013 in three countries worldwide. With our mobile app, anyone can create and edit their Jimdo website on the go.

 

We need your help to continue developing our Android app, which will build on what we learned developing our iOS app while keeping in mind the differences between the two platforms. 

 

Here's what we'd expect from you:

 

  • Involve yourself directly in the brainstorming, planning, design, and development of our Android app.
  • Develop mobile interfaces while keeping user experience in mind.
  • Create wireframes and prototypes. Work with our development team to help realize your designs. 
  • Work cooperatively with designers from other teams to ensure a consistent Jimdo style across platforms and devices.

 

Skills & Experience

We're looking for someone who:

  • Gets their hands dirty with Android UI (XML layouts, animations, etc.)
  • Acts as a link between design and development.
  • Works cooperatively with developers.
  • Knows mobile interfaces inside and out.
  • Understands the nuances of Android design.
  • Knows what a Nine Patch is and sees DPI as more than an abbreviation.
  • Speaks good English.
  • Has a great sense of style, is communicative, and likes to laugh at work.
  • Loves to make progress and works well independently.
  • Has an excellent grasp of graphics software.
  • Has working knowledge of Git.
