Android Developer

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada | Full-time


Android Developer

What did we do before Google? How did we know what time stores closed, how to convert miles into kilometers, or what other movies that actor was in? As an Android Developer, you recognized that a world without Google is not one you want to live in and, as a result, have devoted your career getting to know the ins and outs of its operating systems.

At REDspace, you will become part of a team that works on complex and cutting edge apps, games, and other cool projects for the world’s leading media and entertainment brands. You’re the first to know about new trends or tools and always looking for the next challenge to tackle.

You’ll be part of a mighty and quickly growing team of designers, animators, and developers. Together, we are inventing innovative, captivating interactive experiences and changing the way people engage with technology (while having fun along the way, of course). Want to join our team?

What we expect.
