Ooooh, exciting, right? Be our new Lead Software Engineer (Android) and help us make diabetes suck less.

Lead Software Engineer (Android)

Vienna Head Office

Full Time (Vienna)


Diabetes is a pesky monster — and that’s putting it mildly. If you’re serious about helping us face it head on, come join us!

Most of our customers live with insulin-dependent diabetes. Everyday life with diabetes is often tedious and exhausting – and that’s exactly what motivates our work at mySugr. Always driven by our motto to “make diabetes suck less,” we develop award-winning apps, integrate medical devices into our products, and work with health insurance companies and industry partners to make life with diabetes a bit better. For a behind-the-scenes look, check out our Monster Culture blog and this little video to see what makes mySugr tick. 

Developing mobile apps is great, but developing mobile apps with a purpose is even better! As a Software Engineer at mySugr, you’ll work on a product that helps people with the most precious thing they have — their health. In collaborative teams of Developers, Designers, Product Owners, and QA experts, you’ll experience best-in-class software development practices on a daily basis and contribute to software that meets the highest expectations — we do not put our users' lives at risk! 

Here’s what we’re looking for:

We’re looking for a Lead Software Engineer at mySugr who is responsible for a group of developers as their leader and role model. You drive our software development process, moving your entire team forward while either focussing on personal or technical development (or even both). You write great code, but more importantly, you build successful teams in a supportive work environment. You share your experience, guiding and supporting the team in architecture and technical decisions, ensuring high quality co-review of code. You contribute technical knowledge as a foundation for strategic product decisions, identifying and driving improvements of the product development process and its infrastructure. You foster a candid feedback culture, driving decisions around hiring, team constellations and people development. 

Essential skills for your mission:

  • You have at least 8 years of experience working as a Software Engineer, several of which are on the Android platform
  • You have worked as a lead or principal developer, guiding and supporting other engineers in their daily work
  • The Android platform, Material Design, Kotlin, Dagger, unit tests, and continuous integration pipelines are your daily bread and butter
  • You have a either a Master's degree in Computer Science or a related technical field, or equivalent technical knowledge
  • You regularly collaborate with people from other disciplines like UI/UX Designers, QA Engineers, Product Managers, or Scrum Masters
  • You have experience with reactive programming, API design, and performance optimization
  • You understand that solid processes are not a necessary evil but the basis of collaboration
  • You have a passion for clean code and solid, future-proof architectures
  • You know that there is no excuse not to write tests and the only way to go fast is to go well
  • You enjoy guiding and mentoring other developers by sharing your expertise and helping them to grow
  • You are able to wear many hats and learn new technologies quickly

Bonus skills:

  • You have knowledge of diabetes or the health industry
  • You have helped to grow an organization or a development team
  • You have experience with Firebase, Bluetooth or NFC, Android Jetpack, CircleCI, JFrog, or static code analysis
  • You regularly write blog posts and contribute to open source projects
  • You are an active participant and/or speaker at conferences and meet-ups
  • You have experience building architectures on Android for projects larger than 500 kLOC
  • You have experience in developing safety-critical, medical software

Here's what you can expect from us:

  • Ambitious and passionate people building meaningful products 
  • An innovative agile working environment allowing for collaboration with really smart people and knowledge sharing in cross-functional teams 
  • A growing organization with room for development
  • Not a corporate environment, but the leverage of a global market leader (Roche family)
  • Loads of benefits (brand new Apple hardware, fitness, public transport, lunch benefit, language classes, professional training budget, chance to join global conferences...)
  • Flexible working hours and the opportunity for home office days, 5 weeks vacation
  • A kick-ass office with a rooftop terrace, fully stocked kitchen and amazing barista coffee machines in the middle of Vienna… oh, and did we mention the best team in the world!

You will learn about the wide range of technologies we employ, from native mobile development to infrastructure-as-code in our cloud environment, gaining a rich understanding of the specific requirements of medical software, be it security, medical risk management, safe and resilient programming, or certifications and audits. You will have direct contact with our users, learning about their daily struggles living with diabetes, as well as customers and partners, understanding the unique needs and mechanics of health care systems around the world. Additionally, you may explore other roles related to software development, such as Product Owner or Scrum Master within our interdisciplinary team structure.

Here at mySugr we are committed to providing a healthy, equal and inclusive working environment for our Monster Tamers to help them make diabetes suck less! We care about family friendly career paths, sustainability, a healthy lifestyle and the flexibility of a modern workplace. We maintain a culture of learning and sharing, as well as open and candid feedback. At every level, there are many opportunities to develop and grow at mySugr - both professionally and personally.

Interested? Great. For this position we offer an annual gross salary of minimum EUR 70k plus a variable bonus. We’d like to hear from you! Just click that “Apply Now” button and send us your CV in English or German… and anything else that you think might impress us.
