Building Android apps from your local terminal with the CLI

Lead Tooling Engineer & Tooling Engineer


Krisztián Gödrei: As a Lead Tooling Engineer at Bitrise, I’m mainly responsible for the app automation process. I’ve been a part of the company since before the beginning (then called Bitfall) as an iOS and Android developer. When Bitrise was founded, I was the first person to work on app automation, that is the core of Bitrise. I also own a few pets: two Greek tortoises, and a boxer named Barbie.

Tamas Papik: I’ve been an App Automation Engineer at Bitrise for 2,5 years. Previously, back when Android was in its early stages, I was gathering all their latest devices, building AOSP version OS and also made custom kernels to overclock their CPU and GPU. I also worked in e-commerce and network communication fields in the UK for a year, then later as a 3D mobile game AI programmer for 4 years. After this, I was freelancing in game engineering and mobile-optimized VFX.
