Java Developer / Engineer – London – to £60k – plus bonus and package

A superb opportunity has arisen to join one of London’s most exciting companies with a world leading product - literally. They require a Java Engineer with solid experience in Core Java, JDK7/8, jMock and Agile to join their rapidly expanding team.

Job Description

You will be a mid-level developer who relishes the opportunity of working in a small team where you can make a real impact.

You will work on the server side platform using core Java and DropWizard based web services, on an AWS hosted platform. The engineering team works in two week sprints, so experience in Agile principles is essential - you must be comfortable working against top level requirements and whiteboarding solutions with team members.

You will like to use core Java and should have some experience in building web services and REST API’s. The platform architecture could be described as ‘micro service’ based, so any experience in developing distributed applications is a bonus. Data processing is mostly real time using in-memory databases, and milliseconds matter, hence an understanding of basic Java concurrency and threads must be demonstrated, even if you’ve never coded in this area. Also, if you have worked on e-commerce or any web analytics products that would be useful.

You’ll get to work with various AWS technologies, including EC2, SQS, RDS, S3, and others. This is a dev-ops team, meaning you will be responsible for the successful testing, integration and operation of your code in production.

Key skills and experience

Essential: Core Java, JDK7/8; JUnit, EasyMock, jMock.

Should have: Web services and RESTful API coding; Linux command line (vi, grep, scp, ssh, tail, ps).

Could have: AWS, SaaS product development; SQL/NoSQL data modelling and ETL.

? 5 weeks holiday ? Annual performance bonus ? Training budget ? NEST pension scheme ? Cool office space in central London ? Company supplied Macbook or Dell XPS ? A small team doing great engineering.

Please apply with your CV for full details and a confidential discussion.
