As a Senior Android Engineer at Disney Streaming Services, you'll be building solid, scalable and maintainable mobile applications for Disney+. Our Android team builds apps for phones, tablets, Android TV and Fire TV, as well as connecting with Chromecast, smartwatches and other devices. We primarily work with on-demand streaming video in the sports and entertainment sector.
Our team is flexible, diverse and forward thinking. Our Android team is split over three locations - Amsterdam, New York City and San Francisco. We work together and share knowledge across our global sites, but you will mostly work with your local colleagues in the Amsterdam team.

The day-to-day for this position does not just involve writing code, but also interacting with other Android Engineers, as well as Project Managers, Product Owners, Designers, Backend developers and other Frontend teams (Apple, Web, Game Consoles and Smart TVs). For this reason we are looking for someone with excellent communication skills and fluency in the English language. You are confident in your knowledge of the Android ecosystem and can think out of the box to find solutions that work for all teams.

Your background:
