Our tribe is growing, and we’re currently looking for a brilliant ANDROID DEVELOPER to join our Tech team at the Stockholm office.

Vässla is a pioneer in the evolving “Micro mobility” or “Last Mile” movement in Scandinavia, quickly changing the way we move around. We save loads of people loads of time by making commuting and short distance travel awesome and efficient. We design, develop, produce, and distribute, sell, rent/lease and share, light electric vehicles for utility use.
Utilising the latest technologies in our vehicles, encompassing software, hardware, IoT, and data insights, we create exceptional experiences for the modern urban generation. We became market leaders in e-mopeds in less than a year, and just launched our hybrid bike (mix of kick scooter, bike, and moped). We are currently prototyping the next-gen micro-mobility products.
We are looking to strengthen our small tech team with a passionate developer that is an experienced Android Developer that is excited about modern app development. At the moment we are transitioning away from the React Native Apps that has served us well in our early days, to building native apps using the latest technologies for the long term.
On Android that means that you will have the chance to start from scratch using Kotlin, the latest Android technologies and have a big impact in the project. No requirements to support ancient Android versions.
Our tech stack is based around our company value of Smart Effort - High impact and we are looking for someone that shares this philosophy. We currently use a lot of microservices and "serverless" technologies to achieve that goal.
We are a small and fast moving company so a generalist, self going mindset and excitement to take on new challenges is something that we value.

- Being a self going, fast moving, Android developer.
- Professional Android App Development experience

- Likes / interested in / experience i Microservices and Serverless architecture
- Good communicator with an engineering mindset
- Interested and engaged in shaping the future of the app as a product.

If you find this interesting and you’re up for a challenge, we can offer you a creative and stimulating work environment at one of the most fast-growing scale-ups in Sweden.
We’re at the forefront of technology within the evolving micro-mobility industry, having the ambition of breaking new grounds for what’s possible, always delivering state-of-the-art products.

Our Headquarters is located at Kungsgatan 84, Kungsholmen with great commuting access by Vässla or Public transport.
You need to sign on to all of the below core principles:
1. Champion the mission
We’re on a mission. The traffic congestion thing is messed up. People are commuting their lives away and destroying the planet at the same time. This needs to stop. It’s our mission to make short distance travel sweet.
2. Smart effort - high impact
Focus on the stuff that takes smart effort to do but will have a great impact on many. Everything else must wait. Doing something unimportant well does not make it important. Also, a task requiring a lot of time does not make it important. However, this is not a 9-5 job, but part of joining a movement.
3. Embrace change
One thing is for sure. We will change our minds tons of times. It can be anything. So you need to appreciate and coop with all types of change. We must and should change small things but also really heavy strategic stuff.
4. Always be scrappy
Vässla will grow up and become loads of people. It’s really easy to lose respect for money and the importance of being creative. Always strive to be scrappy. Always try to find a way to make huge projects small. Expensive activities - cheap. Hard things - simple. There is always a way.
5. Non douchebag policy
It’s simple. No matter how much money or fame that is at stake, we will never do business, cooperate, or have anything to do with douchebags. If you sense one, steer away.
