Having successfully placed a similar position over the Xmas holidays, our client are looking for an additional Graduate Java Web Developer for a client in Kent, working as part of a small team developing an E-Commerce platform. The Java Developer's responsibilities will be spread between project work and smaller pieces of continuous development using HTML, Java, JavaScript and CSS.

Work will be diverse with projects ranging from implementing front end design and functional changes on the website, to back end developments integrating 3rd party API's into the reservation systems. The role will allow the candidate exposure to numerous web technologies as well responsive design techniques, agile development processes and continuous integration.

  • Write test plans for significant pieces of work as well as test code written by other members of the development team.

  • Good web development skills including exposure to JavaScript, XHTML and CSS
  • Basic SQL knowledge of any RDBMS.
