At SuitePad, we're shaping the hotel room of the future!

SuitePad is a Berlin-based SasS + Hardware company focused on hotel tech. 

We deliver hotels’ aggregated content, entertainment, and services through in-room tablets and other software- and hardware-solutions. The depth and quality of our services have made us the market leader for in-room guest communication in more than 60,000 hotel rooms across the globe. Our customers include renowned international hotel groups like Jumeirah, Meliá and Van der Valk. As a team, we are proud of the industry recognition we have received (Hotel Tech Report, Hotelverband Deutschland (IHA), Gastro Vision and more).

Our mission is to provide a reliable, effective and delightful platform for guest communication. 

An unique challenge

Since SuitePad delivers both Software and Hardware solutions, as an Android developer, you will be working exactly at the intersection of Hardware and Software.

Our Android stack ranges from user-facing applications (e.g. TV remote-control & VoIP-client) to applications that deal with low-level communication with Android OS and the hardware (e.g. AOSP ROM customization)

We believe that this variety of our Android projects provides a truly unique opportunity for anyone interested in the Android ecosystem.

Your playground:
  • Work with a fleet of android devices and tablets running our custom AOSP ROMs and suite of native and hybrid (Cordova) android apps
  • Improve testability and maintainability of current code-base by applying best practices and leveraging the latest compatible frameworks for Java and Android.
  • You will need to push the limits of our custom android tablets by reverse-engineering and discovering ways of doing things that aren’t publicly documented and no other hardware makers are doing
  • Help us explore how to expand our existing infrastructure into the IOT space as we prepare to design and launch new custom hardware
  • Your day-to-day responsibilities will also include troubleshooting and liaising with staff from other departments
Your profile:
  • You have a solid foundation in writing Object Oriented code
  • Experience working with Kotlin and Java
  • Basic understanding of Unix operating systems: e.g. permissions, processes, file-systems etc
  • Familiar with CLI’s
  • You already have some projects under your belt: showcasing that you can work with dependency management, API’s and compilers
  • Eager to learn
  • Fluent in English: both written and spoken
  • You have the permission to live and work in the EU

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with embedded systems, Raspberry Pi, Odroid or IOT devices in general
  • Having worked on an Android project before
  • Experience with writing automated tests
About SuitePad Engineering

Our Stack

Our tech team has built a robust, service-oriented architecture that powers 10s of thousands of devices. 

We’re primarily a Ruby/Elixir/Ember.js shop with some services in Node.js and React. Our custom hardware devices (mostly tablets) are powered by a suite of Android (Java/Kotlin) apps, which serve our Ember.js apps.

Our infrastructure runs on AWS. We are in the process of migrating to k8s on EKS. Our datastores are PostgreSQL and Redis. We use AMQP as a message bus to tie things together.

We use GitHub, CircleCI, CodeClimate to help us get things done.
