About this opportunity

Lloyds Banking Group is the UK’s leading digital banking franchise, with over 13 million active online customers across our three main brands - including Lloyds Bank, Halifax and Bank of Scotland - as well as the biggest mobile bank in the country. We're building the bank of the future, and we need your help.

We’re continuing our extensive transformation Programme, redefining what a bank is from the inside out. We're committed to Help Britain Prosper and become the best bank for customers. As part of this, we're redefining our digital capability, providing customers with simpler, continuous interactions across online, mobile and branches.

Our digital platforms (public website, mobile & tablet app, and internet banking website) are where the majority of customer and colleague interactions with the bank take place. They are becoming increasingly sophisticated with the introduction of public API's, growing numbers of devices to access them from and evolving operating systems.

Here’s where you’ll make a difference:

This is an excellent opportunity for a driven candidate to join us as an Android Engineering Lead working across several cross-disciplinary feature teams providing engineering leadership and expertise. You will be passionate about designing and delivering scalable mobile applications.

  • Act as an authority with knowledge of best practice Android UI/UX design principles and patterns
  • Demonstrate leadership for mobile architecture
  • Provide mentoring and supporting for Android development team members
  • Help create prototypes to explore innovative solutions and features

In return, you’ll enjoy an exciting, innovative environment which supports flexible and agile working. You will work in a highly collaborative way and enjoy seeing the impact of your work by crafting digital experiences.

About You:

  • Collaborating with cross-functional teams to ensure seamless integration of Android applications with other systems
  • Staying up-to-date with the latest Android trends and technologies and actively contributing to architectural decisions and tech stack choices
  • Mentoring and providing technical guidance to junior Android developers
  • Conducting code reviews to maintain code quality and supporting knowledge sharing through peer programming

About us

What you’ll need -

We believe that people don't fit neatly into roles, and we value everyone's individual skills, experience, and knowledge - it's what makes you amazing!

As a minimum to be considered, we would like to see demonstrated core experience in:

  • Professional working knowledge in designing a mobile experience for variable screen sizes in variable versions of Android
  • Excellent knowledge of Kotlin/Java
  • Strong knowledge of Android SDK, Android UI design principles, patterns, and best practices
  • Experience with offline storage, threading, and performance tuning
  • Awesome knowledge of the open-source Android ecosystem and the libraries available for common tasks and benchmarking and optimisation
  • Proficient in Google's Android design principles, interface guidelines and code versioning tools, such as Git
  • Applying SOLID Principles
  • MVVM/MVI architecture, Android Architecture Components and other Jetpack libraries
  • Jetpack Compose
  • Working in a modularised codebase
  • UI testing

It would also be great if you had experience in:

  • React / AngularJS frameworks
  • Strong understanding of source code repositories and change management tools, Git.
  • Experience of working with Docker or other containerisation technologies
  • Experience of successfully implementing and using CI/CD pipelines

About working for us

Our focus is to ensure we're inclusive every day, building an organisation that reflects modern society and celebrates diversity in all its forms. We want our people to feel that they belong and can be their best, regardless of background, identity or culture. We were one of the first major organisations to set goals on diversity in senior roles, create a menopause health package, and a dedicated Working with Cancer initiative. And it’s why we especially welcome applications from under-represented groups. We’re disability confident. So, if you’d like reasonable adjustments to be made to our recruitment processes, just let us know.

We also offer a wide-ranging benefits package, which includes:

  • A generous pension contribution of up to 15%
  • An annual bonus award, subject to Group performance
  • Share schemes including free shares!
  • Benefits you can adapt to your lifestyle, such as discounted shopping.
