Our ideal Android App Developer is a master of all things Android (our radio stations use android tablets and phones, no iOS out here). The person will love working within the vast Android open source ecosystem and leveraging all the amazing APIs that are available.  Our organization’s heavy usage of google services including Drive, Gmail and Hangouts  as well as our plans to use Soundcloud to the max, will be music to your ears.  Our ideal person knows how to take existing content from news sources and social networks like www.barza.fm and suggest exciting ways that a native Android App could take these services to the next level for our broadcaster partners sitting in their studios as well as out in the fields with farmers.  He / she will flourish working alongside our other volunteers: Online community Developer and SMS + Voice Developer to integrate into a pusling voltron like powerhouse!
