If you’re an inspirational team player with a passion for code and eager to progress, this is an ideal opportunity for both professional and personal development.

What you’ll do

As a role model and mentor to the technical team, you’ll provide direction and expertise in the full software development lifecycle, through design, documentation and development. Your understanding of the trade-offs between technical and product needs will lead to effective solutions, satisfying objectives from both sides.

Ideally having developed and maintained complex and scalable Java web applications within an Agile environment, you’ll be an independent self-starter, adept at research, analysis, and decision making.

  • Spring Security, OAuth 2.0, OpenID

  • Java Core, Spring, SQL, ORM, JUnit

  • OOP, SOLID principles

  • RESTful services, Web services

You’ll also have experience of:

Advanced written and spoken English communication skills are a must.

As a member of our ever-growing team, you'll get the opportunity to work alongside and mentor colleagues at all stages of their careers, in all technical disciplines, with a range of technologies, clients and delivery partners. Variety is never in short supply, and we strive to bring you the best opportunities to learn from and showcase your skills.

We believe that your growth expands beyond your discipline, so we focus on both your personal and professional goals.
