Job description

As a Team Lead Android you are responsible for building and coaching a team that excel in mobile apps development

Pros and cons

  • + You're part of the team and you program for the Android Coolblue App.
  • + You support the team in making technical decisions.
  • + You coach your team members and constantly provide feedback to help them become a little better every day.
  • - Minus: you have to watch the news to stay up to date to shine at the pub quiz.


After a cup of coffee your daily stand-up starts. One team member tells the team that he is working on speeding up the start-up time of the Android app. Another team member wants to join him. You ask if they need help with it but they don't need your help at this time and they plan some time to pair program together. You work together with a team member on adding alternative products to the product page. After you collaborate and create a plan, you quickly get to work and start writing the logic and the tests.

After your lunch walk it's time for your one-on-one with a team member. She's having issues trying to explain to the Product Owner why we want to start using GraphQL and she's asking for your help. You discuss how she can approach this best and after the session she directly talks to the Product Owner about it.

At the end of the day, it's time to unwind. You propose to shoot some pool with a few team members. Now, how to hit that eight ballcorner pocket?
