A Day in the Life - Working Diaries


Android Developer

As an Android Developer on the continuously evolving Mobile team at ASOS, I’m always very busy! There are a lot of things that people would like to see in the mobile apps, so as a team we have to be really open to ideas and feedback – both from users and people within the business. My role is to turn those ideas into real features our customers can use. I spend the majority of my day writing code, but I also spend a lot of time reviewing the work of other team members and planning new solutions to the technical challenges we face when developing new features.

My biggest achievement so far has been being able to deliver a revamp of one of the most important parts of the app. This makes actually paying for items on ASOS much quicker and easier than it was before, and has already had a positive impact on sales.

One of my favourite parts of working for ASOS (apart from the parties and sample sales!) is the fact that we’re trusted to do what we think is best for the customer. This means we get a lot of freedom to make something work the way it should without compromising the user’s experience of shopping with us.
