Contract Type
Full Time

This is an unmissable opportunity for a Senior Mobile Apps Developer to join a niche team (part of a global energy management business) that's developing a fantastic reputation in smart home technology. You'll be immersed in the fast-moving world of connected devices, in a culture that's creative, collaborative and refreshingly free of corporate red tape.

Schneider Electric delivers connected energy and efficiency solutions in more than 100 countries. Our technologies transform the places where we live, work, and play. You'd join our Residential Controls business, which too is changing - fast.

Over the last two years, under a new technical director, we've transformed our culture. Our Plymouth studio - home to around 200 people - has become a centre of excellence for internet and cloud connected products, specifically, in the smart homes field. We're investing heavily in new product design, exploring how connected apps and the IoT can make life better and smarter for consumers. Flexible and informal, we're set up to allow our engineers focus on what they do best: engineering.

Where you fit in…

You will be a Senior Developer in a small, cross-functional development team in an agile development environment. Your aim: to create compelling user-facing apps for our connected products (both Android and iOS) - apps that help us to exploit the huge possibilities in the growing Internet of Things. This is cutting-edge tech that spans electronics, firmware, cloud technology, mobile app development platforms and engineering tools.

Looking forward…

We work closely with development teams across Schneider so there's potential here to set new standards for mobile app architecture and to champion best practice that gets used across the company. Looking forward, you could be leading new smart projects in Grenoble, Montreal or elsewhere in the Schneider world - there's scope here to match your ambition.

What you need…

You don't need connected devices experience. You do need a degree (or equivalent) in a related field, plenty of software and app dev experience (preferably consumer-facing) plus exposure to agile development environments, including Scrum. You are currently working as a senior developer, liaising with product owners, working on the full app lifecycle from concept, design and build to test, release and support.

Personally, you'll bring us a professional, can-do attitude: you're someone who thrives in a fast-paced, team-focused environment. You're a confident communicator too, possibly with some French or German.

Technically, we're looking for experience in as many of the following as possible:

  • Xamarin - C# development experience and use of the Xamarin framework for UI and business logic
  • Android and iOS SDK plus Swift / Objective C (iOS)
  • Creating secure apps
  • Connectivity: developing against RESTful APIs/web services; JSON, XML
  • Scripting UX flows. A-B testing; prototyping tools e.g. Invision

This is a guide - don't let a lack of a particular skill deter you from getting in touch. If you're excited by the IoT and the possibilities of smart energy technology and you can talk with insight and enthusiasm about what makes the world's best apps stand out, we'd like to hear from you.Don't miss this opportunity. To find out more about the business, the benefits, the projects, and the possibilities, please talk to our retained consultant Kasia Krotki on 01908 920669 When you're ready to apply, please email your CV to
