Full Time

I am working in partnership with a global enterprise in the Cheshire area who are looking to add an experienced Senior Java Developer to their current engineering function. They have an HQ based in Knutsford and this hire is part of a company-wide agile transformation project as they look to modernise and innovate in a consistently competitive market.

In terms of technology, this role will sit within a long-standing area of the business but will have that 'new feel' - i.e. you won't be expected to work on ancient legacy code. This department is going through an enormous re-vamp of their application stack and the core focus of this role will be on greenfield product development using the Java EE stack. You will take up a hybrid role, mixing core programming responsibilities with wider duties including mentoring, coaching, technical leadership and architectural input.

Fundamentally, this organisation believes in giving their Software Engineers autonomy and creative control, encouraging autonomy and giving you the opportunity to bring ideas to the table, rather than sitting there and being crushed by the weight of micro-management.

But enough about them... this advert is all about you. Specifically, what you will need to know should you be interested in applying:

Product Development - A background in a product-focused role would be ideal as this position will involve working on greenfield development for their internal systems/applications. Experience working on Enterprise-scale products would be even better.

Technical Knowledge - They work with a range of technologies with a specific focus on the Java EE tech stack and languages/frameworks including Spring MVC, J2EE, PHP, Python and JavaScript (AngularJS, ReactJS). Exposure to MySQL and Oracle would also be highly beneficial.

Agile/Scrum - They operate an Agile environment with a focus on Scrum/Kanban. Previous experience utilising Agile development methodologies is therefore crucial to be considered for this role. Wider knowledge of Continuous Integration and Test Driven Development would also be a nice little add-on.

Stakeholder Management - Although they aren't a Consultancy or MSP, this role will involve occasionally liaising with internal stakeholders over a range of technical and non-technical issues. Excellent communication skills are therefore crucial.

In return for demonstrating some (hopefully all!) of the above, you will benefit from a highly competitive salary alongside a flexible benefits package including a company bonus scheme (15-20%), 25 days holiday and private healthcare. Moreover, their office location is genuinely awesome and includes a 'Google-esque' campus complete with cafes, tennis courts and a fully serviced gym. Not bad eh?

So if you are genuinely sitting at work contemplating your next career move or simply fancy a chat to learn more about this role then give me a shout. You can call me on either ************* or ************ Alternatively, if you are unable to chat then send me an email to **************************.

Anything discussed will be kept completely confidential.
