Job Description

Lead Java Developer - SaaS / CD / CI / Agile

Lead or Senior Java Developers that have a passion for concepts such as automated builds & deployments, clean coding & all-round development best practice, we have a role with a SaaS business in North London who are looking for Lead Developer to help shape a team.

The role

The Lead Developer will be working with a team of 8, made up of back-end devs, front-end devs & QA, leading the development of products, largely developed in Java, with Spring (Core & Boot), Hibernate, AWS, REDIS, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ, SQL with Junit & Mockito for TDD alongside Maven, Gradle & Docker.

The Lead Developer will play a big role in leading daily tasks, playing a technical authority on product development & new ideas, plus provide a client-facing element when required. This will also involve helping to instil a culture of continuous improvement as part of a strategy to maintain a high quality of code, coupled with fast & small releases.

The role will also involve some work with other products built using other tech like PHP, Wordpress & Scala.

The client

Our client changed their business model in 2015 to become a SaaS business, replacing the model of building bespoke versions of their product for clients & the ensuing changes have seen them emerge as a leading vendor in their market.

They have re-written Coldfusion-based products into a loosely-coupled Java-based micro-services architecture, embracing the 'DevOps' culture in the process. The 'hard-yards' of this transformation have been done, with the next phase now focusing heavily on refining the processes and products.

  • Comfortable working in Linux- and Unix-like operating systems, MacOS X and Windows Server environments.
  • Familiar with build tools such as Gradle.
