Job reference:

Your days can be extremely varied from developing new features for the next release to working on defects for a product already in review by our client. We use Java with Spring and Hibernate for the server-side solution and sophisticated JavaScript with Ajax and Angular on the client side, typically you will work front to back and be exposed to both Java, JavaScript, database and tools such as Docker.

You will work closely with our Business Analysts and Testers and be involved in Client demonstrations and activities. We utilise strong testing and test-driven development practises to both refactor and improve the code base without impacting current production features, this is supported by using code quality tools like Sonar to give them metrics coupled with nightly continuous deployment where automated Selenium and Gherkin-based tests are run.

We follow an Agile methodology based on SCRUM and have daily stand-ups to allow the team to synchronise tasks for the next 24 hours.

As a Junior Java Developer, you will have the opportunity to work closely with some of the most experienced Java Developers within our organisation who will guide you through the beginning of you career with all things related to Java. We run workshops, lunch and learn sessions and events and offer regular trips to our other offices to meet likeminded engineers.

The learning will not stop there for you either, throughout the year there will be various training enhancements and courses around Java and its add-ons. Upon starting with us you will receive a personalised career development plan, so you know what your route will be to make it to a Senior Java Developer and eventually a Java Team Lead or Technical Architect. We also encourage an opinion in our working environment so if you think there is a technology that we need to investigate we want to hear from you!
