Job description


Plantix is the world’s most downloaded app for farmers - combining artificial intelligence and the expertise of leading research institutions around the globe. Millions of customers use the Plantix Crop Doctor to diagnose crop problems, get recommendations about treatments and the best suited products at their local store. For the first time in their farming life, many are now able to obtain an accurate diagnosis and the right treatment. On top of this, we provide detailed advice on how to avoid crop loss and to minimize pesticide and fertilizer use. With Plantix, we are able to make a meaningful impact in farmers’ lives.

Would you love to join our team of over 150 people in Germany and India? We are looking for a Senior Android Engineer for our office in Indore!


The role


At Plantix, we solve interesting and challenging problems. You will build a new team of Android engineers for the Plantix Partner App, that helps small agricultural shops to order products digitally. As one of two senior Android engineers, you will help convert the app into native Java following the same principles, code architecture and design system, that the Berlin team has developed for the successful Plantix App. The goal is to finally have two independent teams that share the same ideas and love to learn from each other. You will participate in design sessions, writing and reviewing design docs, code reviews and mentoring other engineers.

Our tech stack currently includes Java, Kotlin, Room, Retrofit, MVVM... but as Android is a fast changing ecosystem, we believe strong engineers are able to choose and learn technologies quickly.
