Software Engineer, Android C++ (All levels)

Berlin, Germany

About the Role

Qt Company’s engineers work on the Qt framework, which enables our customers to create applications that run smoothly on many different platforms. In your daily work you will be surrounded by a team of world class experts, and you will have the opportunity to broaden and deepen your knowledge about all aspects of software development.

In this role you will join our team in Berlin, Germany. Together with the team you will make sure that Qt development on Android is as easy and comfortable as possible and that resulting applications look and feel the same as native Android applications. You will be involved in feature additions and maintenance of Android backends in various areas inside of Qt - be it core components like JNI interfacing, input handling or modules that provide additional functionality like Bluetooth or multimedia. Due to the close proximity with our Tooling team, you might also be involved when tooling related questions come up.

As you can see below, this is not the typical Android position. While most Android roles nowadays mainly use Kotlin/Java, most of Qt's work still happens on the C++ side of things. So having Java and Android experience is a big plus for this role, C++ knowledge is a requirement.

Qt's open source spirit is reflected in our way of working and most of the Android work is done in the open. We are cooperative, provide great mentoring, growing and learning together in a friendly environment.
