Build great technology that actually matters.

We are looking for Android developers to join our growing tech team. At Simprints we are working at the exciting interface of biometrics, IoT, big data, and ML. You need to be sharp, collaborative, a quick learner, and thrive in a fast-paced startup environment. Past experience with mobile languages and the genuine desire to develop world-class Android skills are the ideal fit. As part of this team you will lead our efforts to build technology that’s improving healthcare in some of the poorest and most remote environments on the planet.


  • Work closely with our product and design teams to customise the Simprints experience for the Android platform
  • Redesign and prototype new features
  • Collaborate and leverage UX/UI design principles to build apps that work intuitively

  • Strong understanding of object-oriented software development

  • Passion. If building technology for global health sounds exciting, we want to meet you

We are looking for developers who are always looking to learn and improve. This is a great opportunity for someone with the right skillset and personality to join a fast-paced, startup environment from its early days and take significant responsibility from day one.
