About us

Fotoquirk Ltd, based in Durham, creates innovative visualisation and augmented reality software for mobile devices and the web. We are a small, dynamic and international team aiming to strike the right balance between graphically advanced products and practical solutions which solve actual business problems.

We provide visualisation tools for various leading window decorating businesses in the UK, and are currently expanding internationally.

Job description

We are looking for an enthusiastic software developer to help build the Android version of our next generation visualisation software, initially on project basis but possibly extending to a permanent contract. The Android version will be a custom-built layer on top of our existing multiplatform C++ visualisation core.

This is a remote working job, but you should be prepared to interact on a daily basis with our team in Durham, and most importantly, be responsive. We offer very competitive hourly rates, depending on qualifications.

Requirements

Suitable candidates do not need any formal qualification, and self-taught candidates are explicitly invited to apply, but you should at least have:

  • experience with Android development using the command-line toolset,

  • experience with the Android NDK,

  • experience with Java as well as C++,

  • experience building dynamical user interfaces in code,

  • an interest in 3D graphics.

  • Ability to demonstrate some of the above with e.g. contributions to an open source project is a plus. We are in particular looking for people with a strong desire to learn new technologies 'on the job'.
