Java Developer (Senior) - Java 8, TDD, Microservices

You don't just say you're agile, you actually are and it irks you when others in the team say they are but they aren't, you know you are and they aren't but they don't know that you know you are and they aren't.

Anyway you obviously want to work in a proper agile environment and it's worrying you that you aren't staying relevant. You've tried to push your agileness on the business but they're not having it. They'll continue to work in agile but they're just not agiley enough for you.

Why is this company agile enough for you? Because they only hire people who are as agile as you. You want to release every day, deploy DevOps continuously, Follow TDD with a test first approach and you love sprinting. You love using Java 8 and want to build on the knowledge you have so far.

You hate having to clean up the mess left by your not so agile colleagues, you wish you were in an "own your own code" environment so the standards are raised and the quality comes through.

You're bored aren't you? Same old projects all the time, you want greenfield work. You want to get stuck in to something new but you don't get the chance, you're too important for this project and you get no freedom. If only you had an hour every day to work on your own projects and upskill in a technology of your choice, imagine how much better you'd become?

You have a vision for how an agile development team should be run, you don't get to implement where you are though. You want the freedom to shape things the way you want. You'd rather join a team that isn't quite there yet than the finished article that won't challenge you. You want all this without the line management responsibility that comes with it.

You love your surroundings and want to be impressed every time you walk in to your employer's plush office. You want that wow factor instead of working in an office that is boring and lacks imagination.

You love summer and like to enjoy the rare bit of sunshine we get, so you want your employer to show they care and let you finish at 1pm on Friday's so you can spend more time with your friends and family or have a bit of you time, after all, you deserve it.

Sound like you? Let's have a chat. No CV necessary
