There's an Android mobile application project with an immediate start which is NOT for the faint hearted.  This WILL be a challenge where you'll need to explore solutionsarchitecture, not just the coding & delivery of features!

An urgent requirement for a Senior Android Mobile Developer has arisen to help develop a greenfield project.
