A career opportunity to joining one of the world's leading E-commerce brands as a full stack JAVA DEVELOPER, as a member of their Richmond based team developing and shaping the future of global commerce, shaping how millions of people buy, sell, connect, and share around the world.

This is a client of choice and a "must have on CV", with double digit growth year on year in a fantastic location.

Key Skills:

Java Development with full stack capabilities.

Pair or Extreme Programming.



E-commerce, distributed, high transactional system experience.

Working as part of the European Product Development team based in London with colleagues in Berlin, you will enable commerce at scale and have massive customer impact. The group is responsible for improving the experience of 25 million sellers worldwide.

We expect the right person to be an expert in software engineering and have good knowledge of what it means to work with large and/or distributed systems. We also require a well-rounded full stack developer, with strong Back End skills. Furthermore, we need someone who lives and breathes Agile development, can focus on delivering, and wants to take a leading role in improving how the client works. You will finally be an advocate of Pair Programming.

This is a client continually striving for the highest quality and to work in small focused teams following bits of Scrum, bits of Kanban, with a healthy dose of Extreme Programming (p.s these aren't buzzwords, we mean it when we say that they really do this stuff).

The cross-functional teams have Product Management, all aspects of Product Development (including DevOps and Test), and UX all working together every day.

Work is a rewarding, challenging and an inspiring experience.

So, the developer our client seeks

    You will have an expert's breadth of experience in building high availability, scalable applications and RESTful API.
      You will be proficient in teaching and leading by example, and be comfortable mentoring both junior and senior engineers.
        Experienced in Java, Scala or JavaScript.
          Someone who is passionate about development. You will be open to picking up new languages and frameworks when the situation arises. Developers decide the right tool for the job, so you should be comfortable doing this too. You should enjoy discussing the merits of different technology and you will be invited to join and lead these conversations. You care about test-driven, clean code, delightful user experiences and all the lovely stuff that is involved with automatically tested, continuously deployed applications. You will enjoy pair programming on pretty much everything.
            You will live and breathe Agile development.
              You will write your own tests, whilst learning from Embedded test engineers who code. You have depth of experience, but are open to being broader too. For example, the Java developers learn from the JavaScript experts, and vice versa. Having a desire to expand and master something new means you are a good fit for the client.
