Senior Android Engineer

Bristol, England, United Kingdom · Engineering


Cookpad is the world’s largest recipe sharing platform where over 100 million global users come to enjoy cooking each month in 18+ languages.

We believe we can build a better world through encouraging even more people to cook. Everyday, home cooking has a profound impact on ourselves and the world around us: it makes us healthier and connects us with our friends and family. Through solving the problems related to everyday cooking, we help people live happier and healthier lives in an environment that is more sustainable. That’s how we want to change the world.

People join us because they share our vision to improve people’s lives. We hire smart people who thrive in small, highly collaborative, and energised teams, and who look at what we do and want to be part of it. Uniquely, we have a mature product in Japan but, in the global market-space, we are a start-up team with a new product vision so there is freedom to be innovative and put forward brave ideas.

Today we are helping millions of people a month and as far as we’re concerned, we’ve barely got started. If you want to work on a product making a global impact then we want to hear from you.

  • 3+ years of experience of Android development
  • Affinity for user-driven product development

    Valuing our team means we offer competitive salaries and benefits you’d expect from a company wanting great people, including a generous 7% employer pension contribution and an exceptional employee referral scheme, plus cycle to work and childcare voucher schemes.

    We also do a few things you might not expect. We keep you going with fresh fruit and delicious edible gifts from visiting team members, days off for charity work and peace of mind with group income protection, life assurance and private medical insurance.

    We are central to transport hubs and bike routes which helps with flexible working and all-important downtime with family and friends.
