Do you want to start a career as an Android developer, but you feel that you need help from someone that has real work experience?

Do you need a mentor that can guide and help when you get stuck?

Who I'm I

I’m a self-taught Android developer with around 6 years of Android experience.

What you will learn

We will do an initial evaluation, and we will determine the concepts that we will touch. I could easily set a default curriculum, but I know that not everyone has the same way of learning. Upon a discussion, we will plan goals and actions, and we will review your progress often. Regarding the overall goal, I would say, there are some things I have in mind:

  • How to use version control
  • How to debug an Android app
  • Kotlin and Android basic and advanced concepts.

What you need to take this program

  • Good written/spoken English ( Don’t need to be native speaker. I’m not. )
  • A laptop/pc and Internet connection.
  • Commitment and dedication.

Opened Positions

Two. ( I might open a third position. Depends on my availability and the number of submissions )


  • Duration: 12 weeks. At the end of the program we can agree to extend.
  • Private calls of 1 hour every week. ( If all parties agree, you will be allowed to attend other private meetings too )
  • Asynchronous chat. ( We will probably use Slack or Discord for any questions that you have ). I will try to respond as fast as possible.


Before applying to this mentorship program, please ensure that you want to attend this for three months. I thought of asking for a money-back guarantee for you not to drop out, but I know it’s hard for people at the beginning of their journey.

  • Submit a 300 words essay, and tell me why you want to become an Android developer. What is your experience, and what are your plans. If you are chosen, It will be published to the public. Please write the essay in a Google Drive Doc and share the public link in the application form.
  • 30 minutes discussion ( only if you pass the first step ).

Mandatory if accepted into the program

  • 20 hours per week is great. More than that is amazing and better for you.
  • You will have to document your journey. How? You decide. Maybe you like to write, or maybe you prefer to make Youtube videos. For example, I would prefer a blog post of over 1000 words every two weeks where you tell people about your experience: what you learn? struggles/learning etc. All the content will be published on Mobjob’s website or other websites like Medium or FreeCodeCamp.
Disclaimer: If any of the above will not be respected during the program, I take the right to remove you.

What will be judged

  • The submitted essay will have to inspire passion and desire to become an Android developer. ( Will be published once a person is chosen )
  • Prior experience is a plus. This means that the person has a real interest in Android development.
  • You have a job into other industries, but still want to study, means real dedication.
  • I am interested in people that want to start a career rather than building an application, publishing it on Google Play in the hope that it will make millions, and then call it a day.

Registrations might be suspended or closed if the number of applications is bigger than 100.

Most frequent questions and answers

If you have prior experience, I would say that you have a high chance. If you are just starting out, you will probably need to practice more. It took me around 8 months to find my first Junior role. ( It doesn’t mean that for all people it’s going to be the same )

Short answer is no. By default we will use chat and private calls for 1 hour every two weeks. I will do my best to be available as much as possible.

You will study mostly from tutorials ( video or text ). Google has more answers than I do. My job will be to guide, and help, when you get blocked.
