You want to build something great. What's great though? Great is building something used by millions on different continents, it is affecting the lives of people far away from you, people you'll never know anything about but you're making their experiences enjoyable, that's what being part of a great team is.

Right now it's all fine but it isn't great, it's good work and you're enjoying it but you want that next step. That step in to greatness. When this many people use something you have not only built with your own hands but you've guided the team, you've stepped in a set out a vision for greatness. You've architected and owned it, it's your baby.

You want to utilise your skills on a bigger platform, build scalable robust and high performing software, you know it needs to be and you're good enough to deliver it. Being part of one of Europe's biggest E-Commerce platforms is where you see yourself, you want to champion the principles you know and work in an agile way, you love showing people the way and advising them that being as agile as you is the best way forward. You love designing, the planning excites you as much as the delivering.

You think about things in the longer term, you don't knee-jerk and want to map out a strategy,. Are you an architect who codes or a developer who architects? It doesn't really matter does it? You get the job done and inspire those around you.

  • You've got an expert level understanding of Java and Spring
  • You've worked with different delivery methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban and Waterfall
