Android Engineer

South Africa  |  United Kingdom

Location: South Africa OR EMEA Remote - (As long as you're within the EMEA or SA timezone)

We’re an award winning (yes! You read that right - we’re one of Apple’s 2019 apps of the year in the ‘Storytelling Simplified’ category) with a distributed team spanning a wide range of locations – and we’re constantly growing.  

At Over (GoDaddy's South African entity) we believe that Creativity is the magical act of making change happen. 
It’s the power to reinvent yourself and the sorcery of making something out of nothing. 
It's also the terror of a blank page; a rough destination with no directions.   
But with the right tools, creativity turns any obstacle course into a playground.  
So we take the hard parts out, so our users can focus on the joy of making change happen 
Our users are ambitious, driven, and highly creative go-getters, entrepreneurs and dreamers, and we make it our mission to ensure they’re equipped with the tools and knowledge to make their mark on the world – whatever that may be. 

At Over, we live and breathe these values – and they show up in everything we do: 

  • See it big keep it real –  We don’t shy away from big ideas and crazy thinking – that’s where great things are made. But big ideas need clear plans. So we always come back to the problem, back to our why, back to the smaller steps. That’s just how we roll 
  • No mud; no lotus.  
  • The road to reaching our mission is filled with ups and downs. And let’s be real, sometimes we’ll end up elbow deep in fertilizer before the good stuff grows. But the low points provide the teaching moments. So get your hands dirty. Just ... maybe wash them afterwards. 
  • It’s a playground, not an obstacle course.  We’re in the business of sparking ideas and encouraging big dreams, and you can’t do that without a whole lotta play. And hey, life will give you lemons, but we say “throw them back and play catch!” That’s how we make sure that when a problem comes knocking, we’re ready to take it on. 
  • Good hearts do great work  
  • Good work comes from all types. But great work? That happens when we leave our egos at the door. When we speak the truth, listen hard, and take accountability for our actions. This is how we ensure that we make each other better. And better us = better outcomes. 
  • You can’t pour from an empty cup  
  • Think big, work hard, push yourself, bring your A game – but for the love of everything awesome, sit yo’self down and recharge. Eat the delicious thing. Get some vitamin D. It’s called balance. 
  • It takes a village  What we do here? It takes all of us. It takes diverse thinking and fresh ideas. It takes trust in each other to do what we say we will. And it takes freedom to do our best work, whenever and wherever that is. 
  • We say“thank you”. Like, a lot. For big things, small things, old things and new things. Our#gratitude Slack channel is a constant reminder we’re an overwhelmingly grateful bunch.
