Senior Mobile Developer (Contract)
Location: UK remote - occasional travel to London
Company: Lollipop

✨Lollipop is making the mundane magical ✨

We are cooking up the fastest and most enjoyable shopping and cooking experience in the world. We want to help busy families and those overwhelmed by the pressures of daily life ultimately enjoy this chore. We are laser focused on building a product that doesn't just look after everyone but our planet too, so helping to reduce the £10 billion of food waste thrown away every year is a huge priority for us.


Our diverse founding team of 12 have built businesses such as Monzo, Curve and Florence and our backers have scaled companies like Ocado, Innocent, Babylon and Deliveroo. We know what it takes to build products enjoyed by millions of people across the world. In order for us to complete our mission though, we need to find like-minded folks who care about the same things we do - that's where you come in.


📱The role:

As a Senior Contract Mobile Engineer at Lollipop, your goal is to take our existing Flutter mobile application to the next level, and to create a shopping experience our users can’t live without. You'll work in a small tight-knit semi-autonomous cross-functional team, iterating quickly with highly capable designers and fellow mobile and full stack developers. You'll build useful, usable, and delightful mobile experiences for customers. You'll play a significant role in setting mobile architecture and code quality bar, and help train and coach less experienced mobile developers.


This phase is all about getting working software in front of users and iterating fast based on feedback. We are not yet optimising for massive scale or fixing every possible edge-case. But before long you’ll need to help build a scalable platform that can handle growth without slowing down development.

You’re someone who makes things happen, takes a lead and encourages others, despite ambiguity and changing requirements. You can calmly handle periods of breakneck scaling and moments of chaos. You have a passion for innovation and solving real customer problems, not just shipping code.


What your day-to-day will include:

  • As a team, you will take product, design and data inputs, make decisions, try features and iterate quickly based on direct customer feedback
  • You will be working directly with full-stack developers on the same team to come up with the APIs that power our mobile apps
  • You will help train and coach less experienced developers
  • You will help set the mobile architecture and
  • You will be rapidly solving product and tech challenges that haven’t been solved before
  • You will help shape our development process and company culture


You should apply if you have:

  • Substantial (5+ years) experience building mobile apps for iOS and Android
  • Experience shipping a Flutter application on iOS and Android stores
  • Continuous integration experience for mobile
  • Rapid prototyping experience building prototypes/MVPs with short cycle times (hours or days, not weeks)
  • A strong desire to learn from others, improve your practice and push yourself towards greatness
  • Impactful experience in a scaling startup environment and/or at a major tech brand (not required but would be ideal!)


🖖🏽 How you operate

  • Think big - you're inspired by frighteningly ambitious solutions to big customer problems, you approach them from first principles and you have the determination to clear hurdles to get there.
  • Move fast - you are used to shipping fast and learn fast, you're not afraid to fail, you balance codebase quality with speed of delivery and you're a clear thinker and excellent communicator.
  • Make it better - you think about the bigger picture, you have a growth mindset with yourself and others (including a healthy relationship with feedback), you're hard on problems not people and you seek out diversity in all its lovely forms.


🏅Why you should join us

No matter how fast we scale, we won’t forget that our incredible team is a wide-ranging group of individuals who deserve a personal touch. We’ll need to move fast and work hard to achieve our mission but we firmly commit to ensuring our workplace is motivating, diverse, inclusive, honest and transparent throughout the journey.
