Senior Java Developer

Become part of the team

As a Senior Java Developer, you will operate within a pod, and be a practiced member of the team. You'll be competent at owning and delivering solutions, and being the design authority for how features are implemented:

  • You can expect to use your knowledge of architecture; our clients will look to you for advice and contribution in higher level architectural discussions
  • You'll take ownership for certain aspects of the process by putting appropriate methods and tools in place
  • You will have regular conversations with clients, and be a point of contact between the client and the project team
  • Coaching and mentoring more junior members of the team, and deputising for the team principal
  • Your involvement in shaping bids (working with a bid team) will assist to create approaches or proposals, and perhaps you may also add valuable contributions during presentations to clients in a formal selection process

We put a lot of trust in you and your pod to meet deadlines, and to find the rhythm and ways of working that suits our clients. You get ownership and control of the processes for taking your code into live. Pods are a small team with a mix of technology skills, we supplement development expertise with DevOps (we emphasise the Dev in DevOps) and Test Automation specialists. The pod works together in a collaborative environment and you might get the chance to develop your DevOps or automation expertise. We also need you to also contribute to developing the pod, perhaps by sharing your expertise in a tool or mentoring teammates.

What we're looking for
  • Experience in Java:
    • Java 8+
    • MVC, JDBC and RESTful
    • Knowledge of JVM
    • Building tools such as Ant, Maven and Gradle
  • Experience developing solutions in the cloud, using either AWS, GCP or Azure
  • Experience developing code using CI/CD tools
  • Experience in microservices architecture, including containers and serverless implementation. E.g. Kubernetes, Docker, OpenShift, AWS Lambda, Cloud Functions
  • Skilled in reviewing code to provide assurance on a release
  • Experience working in agile development teams where you're applying development practices such as:
    • Agile sprints
    • TDD and/or BDD approaches
  • Experience working alongside others in the team to develop design, elaborate user stories and deliver estimates during story pointing
  • An understanding of scalability, high availability and disaster recovery requirements
Benefits
  • Private medical insurance
  • Travel allowance
  • 25 days annual leave with the opportunity to buy 5 additional days
  • Company pension scheme
  • Annual performance-based bonus
  • Life and Income protection insurance
  • Tax efficient benefits (cycle to work, give as you earn)
  • Additional optional benefits (Dental, critical illness, spouse/partner life assurance)
