Job Description

Java Software Engineer (mid-level) - Lab days / new offices

Fancy working for a company that gives you a dedicated afternoon each week to work on personal projects or learn new skills? What about getting he chance to present innovations to the business and seeing them going into production?

So how about a job with a company that can offer you the chance to work with Java 8, ElasticSearch, AWS, Spring Boot and Kibana?

I'm delighted to be working with a company in Manchester City Centre who are looking for Software Engineer, ideally with a skillset in a JVM language such as Java 7 / 8 or Scala, but comfortable with the idea of playing around with other platforms & technology.


The role

The role will be developing scalable, high-availability web platforms & services for a global business with the current technology stack including Java 8, Spring (Core, Boot, MVC), Hibernate, ElasticSearch, RabbitMQ, AWS, Kibana, DynamoDB, JUnit, JMeter but also other technology outside of the typical Java-stack as well such as Angular.js, Node.js, Python, Redis, Protractor & Sensu.

The job will involve working on backend services for an e-commerce site that generates £3m in revenues each week.

Each week, the Head of Development sets aside 'lab' time for the tech-team to tackle personal projects. This has varied from proof-of-concepts to tackle problems within the business or present new ideas for adoption; personal development time to learn new skills; a chance to check on new technology that would make the job easier;

In Q1 of 2018, the team have moved in larger offices 5 minutes away from their old offices giving them capacity to grow but also offer better space for break-out areas, etc. Over the last 2 years, the company have worked hard to create a culture of inclusion, innovation & ultimately a friendly place to work.

About the job

  • Working in a friendly, innovative, agile environment
  • Liaising with BAs and QAs to understand requirements
  • Delivering new product features and enhancements
  • Developing robust, clean and efficient code

About you

  • An experienced Software Developer
  • Delivered high availability, large scale, data-driven web sites and services
  • Structured and pragmatic approach to solving technical problems
  • Comfortable working in an evolving technical landscape
  • Flexible, motivated and self-organised
  • Continually learning, adapting and seeking improvement
  • A team player and clear communicator

This client hire as much for the right attitude & willingness to learn, as they do for skills.
