Why we need you
Our Android team consists of passionate developers with the ambition to build the best football products in the world and we need you to help us take us to the next level. Not only do we need you for your technical skills, we also need you for your ability to coordinate and help shaping the team’s vision for the future.


Our company mission statement is:

Make the world of football a better place and available for everyone

The Android market is a huge opportunity for us in order to reach our company mission. We currently have more users on the iOS platform, even if the potential is much bigger on the Android platform. This is untapped potential and we want you to be part of the team that makes us the number one football platform on Android.

Who you are
You are always looking to improve, in all aspects. You enjoy honing your skills, both technical and social, and you actively look to sharing knowledge with others. You enjoy working in a group and seeing other people succeed with your support. 

You are an enthusiast when it comes to Android development. You get excited by the idea of forming the technical foundation of our Android infrastructure, building both short-term and long-term solutions in close collaboration with other developers. You understand the purpose of writing robust tests for business critical features, building for the long-term. You also understand the benefits of releasing features quickly, with the intention to learn and iterate. 


What you will do
As an experienced Android developer, you will supply our team with valuable knowledge and insights. You will emphasise the importance of the Android ecosystem and see the global potential the platform enables, in established and emerging markets alike. You will dive down into the nitty gritty parts of product development, in close collaboration with designers, project managers, backend engineers, etc.

You will take a lead role in prioritising Android specific tasks, forming a technical roadmap for the platform. You will coordinate the team’s work, making sure that the right people are focusing on the right things. You will make sure the Android team is aligned with other parts of Forza, where the same features exist on Android, iOS as well as the web. You will need to discuss feature parity, code maturity, ways of working, release process together with representatives from all parts of the company.

Kotlin is our programming language of choice. However, we have components written in Java so experience with both languages is important. 

As an Android developer, you will work with modern tools and frameworks. The list consists of, but is not limited to:

  • RxJava
  • Kodein DI framework (experience with other frameworks like Dagger is sufficient)
  • Retrofit and OkHttp for network layer
  • Room for database layer
  • Android Architecture Components for the presentation layer
  • Analytics tools: Firebase, Amazon Pinpoint, among others.
  • Mockito and JUnit for tests

Workplace and Culture

We’re connected by our passions, regardless if they are about changing the world of football, technology or the game itself.

Our company is different than others, which is why we're experimenting with how a company usually works. We see the individuals instead of the whole, that's why we continuously question the company norms.

We do believe it's important that each person finds their best way of working in order to get a long term life balance, and the flexibility in our company is a proof of that.

We work in squads, forces and teams  and have coaches, drivers, members and what not (let’s not get into details yet). Our company structure is constantly developing, changing and improving, because we are not perfect and will probably never be, and that the beauty of it. 

At Forza Football you are welcome to come as you are - no matter your gender, personality type, sexuality, religion, background, ethnicity or disabilites. A diverse team is the most innovative, creative and clever one, and it is through those dissimilarities we will be able to reach every football fan in the world. Because only then we can change the world of football for the better.
