Mobile App Lead - Mobile Vikings

3500 HASSELT

The Role

“There’s an app for that.” Yes, you know... You’ve probably even built it. Because that’s exactly what you do: fueled by excitement, fury and critical thinking you build mobile applications from A to Z. This implies the following: you’re a problem solver, who works in an organized and detailed manner, even in agile environments such as here with your fellow Vikings. You’ll be responsible for conceptualizing, developing and maintaining several mobile apps for our members. Think telecom or TV apps. Yes, the area of interest is that broad. While you’ll coach and be responsible for the planning of the app development team, who’ll blindly trust you as their go-to person, you’ll be developing as well. In the end, you’re the one responsible for the top-notch quality of the code bases.

Your main responsibilities are

  • To make sure the team functions well
  • To make sure the team members are at ease in their role
  • To guarantee company-wide satisfaction with the app team’s work
  • To draw up the team planning and distribute work
  • To further develop one of our high-end apps: the Viking App (iOS, Android and Windows Phone)
  • To act as the go-to person (advice, follow-up, development) for your team and all others within the company as it comes to app development
  • To provide new insights that contribute to the UX of our apps
  • To guarantee the delivery of high-quality software, on time and within budget
  • To work together with your team and proactively share your learnings and experience

You are the one

  • Who has a proven track record in mobile app development (proficient on either one of the three platforms, while iOS is a big plus)
  • Who has a clear understanding of app software architecture
  • Who loves to lead and loves to code
  • Who’s also a usability expert
  • Who keeps a keen eye on trends in app design and feature technology
  • Who’s flexible and able to work independently
  • Who’s fluent in English
  • Who thrives in a vibrant and agile environment
  • Who, after reading all this, says “This is it!”
  • Who might bring this to the job as well, although not required: Experience in writing proofs-of-concept and prototype building
