I’m Adam, and I’m a Senior Android Engineer.
I’ve been working in Android for 5 years now. I taught myself how to program and was lucky enough to get an internship at Flypay, and my career grew from there. I then lead the Android team at Blockchain, and I’m proud of what we were able to achieve during a period of absolutely wild growth. Most recently, I worked at Freetrade and helped launch the MVP of their Android app.
Right now, I’m taking some time off to do some writing and personal projects before I start a new role. If anyone knows of any kick-ass companies hiring Android engineers, who value good code and employee growth: I’d love to hear more more.
I’m a huge advocate of Kotlin, functional programming and RxJava. I’m also interested in security and cryptography with enough knowledge to know not to do anything myself, and I’m big on mentorship, open source and knowledge sharing within engineering. I am also in a constant battle between mechanical keyboards and my wallet.
My goal in the next year is to be nominated as a Google Developer Expert, so expect to see a fair bit of content from me. I’ve been saying the same for a few years, but now I’m going to actually make it happen.
Questions? Fancy a chat about Android/Kotlin/anything at all? The best place to catch me is on Twitter.
