Software Engineer Android (Kotlin, ARCore) (F/M/D)

About us


It is sometimes hectic, very exciting, and always fun! Every day, you will find yourself facing different challenges, learning new things, working on cutting-edge technology, and building cool, high tech products.
Are you excited to build things that matter within an organization that’s pushing the boundaries of 3D mapping and computer vision? We have some of the world's leading experts in computer vision, image processing, and 3D mapping, and we work side by side with academia to advance these fields. Join the team that’s making it all happen.
At the end of the day, you’ll have a great sense of accomplishment, having contributed to building something completely innovative at the frontier of today's technology.


  • Take the chance to build & influence the performance of our high tech products instead of “only” running analyses or of doing “plain” software development
  • Use top notch IT equipment, including Bose headphones
  • Work closely with passionate, international & highly talented colleagues in a casual environment with flexible working hours
  • Find us in the heart of Munich, close to Stiglmaierplatz with great cafes, shops and subway around
  • Join your NavVis colleagues and continuously grow your biz/tech skills with courses from our internal “NavVis University” which brings you topics from expert internal & external trainers
  • Strong teams are built on strong bonds. Join us for bi-monthly BrownBag lunches, regular team-building activities, self-organized employee activities (sky is the limit on these!) and annual team off-sites
  • Take care of your well-being at work and enjoy our fully stocked kitchen with an original Italian coffee machine & all kinds of cereals and fruits


We are looking for a curious, proactive, and passionate Software Engineer Android to join the NavVis Navigation team. Are you ready to drive your own projects and put your top-notch skills into action? Come be a part of the digital revolution of real-time 3D location sensing and location-aware mobile applications shaping the interaction between the real and the virtual world. You’ll be surrounded by other fun, like-minded individuals, work at the forefront of technology, and build something that you can really be proud of.

You will work on:

  • Pioneering technologies such as visual positioning and tracking pushing the frontiers of indoor spatial intelligence
  • Location aware Android applications integrating NavVis positioning technology
  • The cross-platform code base used by iOS and Android
  • Cross-team collaboration, especially to coordinate the development with our Backend Engineers

  • Comprehensive knowledge of the Android ecosystem and toolchain
  • Solid experience with best practices and modern software architectures for Android
  • The drive to stay up-to-date on latest developments all around Android
