Android Developer - Full-Time

Sidekick Interactive is a young and dynamic company which primarily develops mobile applications (native iOS and native Android solutions) for a variety of different clients. We’ve worked on innovative and challenging projects for the City of Montreal, City of Laval, car2go, multiple startups, European clients, and fortune 500 companies. We touch various industries such as medtech, construction, tourism, and more. We primarily do custom work for our clients as well as develop multiple in-house projects. All our apps are programmed entirely natively, and we love to tackle challenging tech problems, like 3D scans and Bluetooth Mesh.

Our company is growing and we need more help! We are looking for a full time Android developer to integrate with the team and work on multiple apps.
