Product development

We’re looking for Engineers who bring fresh ideas from all areas of the technology stack, such as distributed computing, micro-services, system design, server side, UI design.

Description of the role

Our Java Developers working day:

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 an experienced developer you can become one of our SME’s with all things related to Java, we run workshops, lunch and learn sessions and even and sponsor tech meet ups which will give you the chance to inspire the younger generation.

The learning will not stop there for you either, throughout the year there will be various training enhancements and courses. Plus, each member of staff receives a personalised career development plan so you know what your route will be to make it to a senior developer. 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!
