About your new company
There are over 1.2 billion mobile gamers worldwide. 59% of them spend over 15 minutes searching for a game that, 72% of the time, they only play that game once or twice before they uninstall it. The app stores have over 1.5 million games (growing by 400/day) and are unable to cope, simply creating more categories to search through. People are also left to manually organise the games on their devices, quite often leaving some unused for over 6 months!
ANDi is your personal mobile gaming assistant which makes finding new mobile games to play an easy and fluid process by actively recommending games based on your mobile gaming history. ANDi also helps you manage the games you currently have, helping you choose which game to play or remove at the best times.
Our early stage Android app launched in January 2017, boasting a ‘Tinder for Games’ feature that learns which games you like as you swipe as well as a proactive notification system to re-engage our users. We also plan to make other proactive assistants in the gambling, micro-investment and other interesting spaces.
Ben Woolf (CEO) deals with overall company ops, investors and partnerships. Sam Koch (CTO) builds the tech powering ANDi. Kris Wingfield-Bennett handles our marketing & website, including the blog and content writers. Each of us are absolutely motivated to make ANDi a major success. With regards to work ethic, we are very flexible with office hours, we’re onto something with incredible potential so we’re doing all we can to make it happen.
After joining Wayra, the accelerator run by Telefonica (O2), in February 2017, we started working alongside industry experts, some from Amazon and Google, who run regularly workshops.
About your new role
You will join Sam in the tech team and be our point-person for all backend related development. If that’s you, your day-to-day job would be further developing our Java and Node.js servers (hosted on Google Cloud) and databases (Firebase & Google Cloud SQL) that provide the architecture to support the user-facing products. This is so, even as we scale, we can provide users with the best personalised experience, tailored to them.
At the start you will work very closely with Sam on 2 week sprints ending every other Thursday at 5pm, allowing for a more relaxed Friday. As ANDi grows, we will split into frontend and backend teams which you can help Sam hire and organise. There will also be a chance to develop your own AI algorithms, focused deep learning to improve the platform.
Skills you should have
- Desirable knowledge of Python for any Machine Learning development
- Some experience with APIs and Git (or another version control)
If you don’t have all of these skills, but still feel you’d be a good fit for this role, still get in touch with us to discuss your experience.
Hourly Rate £10 – £20 / hour
Equity Up to 5%
