Mobile Engineer (Android) at Peakon

Copenhagen, Denmark · Engineering/Product


At some companies you can feel the momentum building. People are engaged, they're approaching their work with energy, enthusiasm and resilience. Being part of the organisation becomes part of your own identity.
At others, it feels impossible to get everyone pulling in the same direction. People lose sight of the company's purpose, they start looking out only for themselves – or elsewhere for new opportunities.
We started Peakon to help companies around the world build better workplaces. Where employees know they're listened to, managers learn from their own decisions and develop as leaders, and entire organisations see a step-change in what they can achieve.
Trust and transparency guide everything we do. At Peakon you’ll find a transparent salary model, unlimited vacation, minimal hierarchy, and maximum freedom to develop and execute your own ideas. Our style of collaboration is based on honesty and friendship, and we always love making new friends…

Now, we are looking for a Mobile App Engineer with deep knowledge of native app development on Android, to help us take our mobile experience to the next level by enhancing existing and new products with native app capabilities.
At Peakon, we rely heavily on JavaScript at every level of our technology stack, and React in particular for our user experience on the web. Our ambition is to push the boundaries of the type of user experiences and developer workflows made possible by blending web and native technologies.
As a Mobile App Engineer at Peakon, you will be bringing native app expertise to a team developing new mobile products, primarily for line managers using Peakon daily to improve their team’s happiness, productivity and engagement. You will work closely with our experienced JavaScript and React developers to build world class mobile experiences for our customers.


Our ideal candidate has…

  • +2 years experience working as a mobile app engineer in an agile team
  • Experience in developing, shipping and maintaining a native app for the Android platform
  • Some experience with web technologies like JavaScript
  • Some knowledge of React Native and its capabilities, or experience working with other cross-platform frameworks for native app development
  • Some experience or interest in working with modern JavaScript technologies
  • Detail-oriented, focusing on writing maintainable code of high quality

We welcome your application even if you do not meet all of the criteria listed above, but are excited about the challenge of mastering this role. We know that skills are not static and growth is continuous, so we are excited to help you take your career to the next level at Peakon.


We make it a priority to stay on the cutting edge of tech. We are highly motivated by learning and growing in our roles, and constantly evolving is a key part of that.
The tech stack of Peakon centers around Javascript, with Node.js on the server and React on the frontend. We believe there is great value in a shared toolchain across the stack, enabling engineers to work on all parts of the system. Some tasks are better solved with different tools, and thus we use f.ex. Python for the data science parts of the system.
We are big fans of new JavaScript language features like async/await, and have made it a priority to stay up to date with the latest versions of Node. We are primarily hosted on Heroku and AWS, with an increasing number of our services moving to the latter. We use PostgreSQL (through RDS), Redis and ElasticSearch for storage.
We rely heavily on automated testing on all levels of the application, with thousands of tests checking every commit to our code base. We use CircleCI for hosted continuous integration to make sure our most recent changes are always available to test, and we deploy code to our production environment on a daily basis.
