At Catawiki, we keep our users close to our hearts, and make sure that we deliver a great user experience across all platforms. Android is no exception! As Android developers working at Catawiki we are empowered to take full ownership of the features we deliver, and full ownership on how we structure our code base.
We embrace change, we’ve migrated from MVC to MVP and now to MVVM. Currently, we are adopting Kotlin and enjoying all the cool advantages that comes with it. We are constantly improving our architecture, making it fun and challenging at the same time.
Here’s Ahmed, one of our Engineers:
“I’ve been working at Catawiki for the past 3 and a half years. It is so inspiring to see how fast Catawiki grew. We have continually improved our products including our Android App. To do so, I collaborate on a daily basis with back-enders, Product owners and designers to find the best way to implement features technically, as well as visually. We have come a long way since the birth of our Android App, and we still have a long way to go.”
Here at Catawiki, you will have a huge impact, working in a data-driven way to add value to the business along with the other 4 members of the Android team. You will add your own expertise to further grow our business, experiment and innovate the product.
You’ll be adding new features to create an even greater experience for our users. As well as actively collaborating with your fellow Android developers to take the codebase and the entire Android App to the next level. Our millions of users will thank you for that.
Our codebase is primarily written in Java but we are strongly adopting Kotlin for our new features and refactorings. Our app uses MVVM as a general architecture, and we rely heavily on the reactive/functional paradigm using RxJava. We also make use of Android’s Architecture Components. We are using the most popular stuff like Dagger 2, Retrofit, data binding, as well as Mockito and Espresso for testing.
You will be part of one of the product teams, working on a given domain (Search & Discovery, Payments, Onboarding etc.) and you will work closely with all of the team members (Front-End, Back-End, UX and Data) in sharing your expertise and explaining how the things you do will affect the user experience.
You are a passionate experienced Android developer with a strong eye for details and you strive to be a great team player and don’t shy away from new challenges. As well as being comfortable in a startup environment, you’ll keep the company’s values close to your heart and enjoy being in a diverse environment. We expect you to have experience with:

The Catawiki Story
A piece of the moon, a complete dinosaur skeleton, the Pope’s hat, the world’s smallest book – at Catawiki, we come across exceptional objects such as these every single day. As Europe’s fastest growing online auction platform, our mission is to make special objects available to everyone.
Born and raised in The Netherlands, we started in 2008 as a platform where collectors could manage their collections online. Yet, times change, ideas evolve, and in 2011 we hosted our first online auction and we haven’t looked back since! We’ve now grown to 500 Catawikians working across 7 International offices and are proud to have maintained our start-up mentality.
A diverse and international team with over 40 different nationalities, located in the heart of Amsterdam and Assen with an easy-going atmosphere. The Catawiki Community gathers everyone together for everything from ‘CataFooty’ to International Food Festivals, Friday Drinks, Board Game Nights, Pub Quizzes and Boot Camps!
And there’s more! We also provide paid holidays, holiday allowance and a pension plan paid for by Catawiki.
