Java Developer

Salary: Up to £50K + Bonus + Excellent Benefits Package

Location: North West London | Hertfordshire Border

We are looking for Java Developers at the start of their coding careers, who have gained some commercial experience, but now want to push on into more complex & challenging development challenges.

You’ll want to really test what you’ve learned so far – we use Java 8 & are in the process of upgrading to Java 10 & already have plans to move to Java 11 when a stable release appears!

You will want to work with experienced Software Engineers, who have been building globally used applications for numerous years & take great pride in their work. They also take great pride in teaching others at the beginning of their careers; pair programming is common & we work in small AGILE groups, typically using Kanban or SCRUM, depending on the feature in development.

We have an excellent Development Director, who is an AGILE advocate & has been doing it for years. You’ll be well shielded from the business with Scrum Masters coaching you through sprints so that you can actually do what you love: code & create.

You will be looking to move on from a company that’s started you off well, but cannot currently offer the progression, training, latest technology & support that you crave.

We believe we can (& have) offered this over several years & are advocates of internal promotion through the ranks of Junior Developers, up through to Architect & Lead Developer level. The team is now 20+, all UK based.

Your primary skill is Java, but you’re also eager to get stuck in to other technologies. Other key technologies we work with include JavaScript, AWS and Docker, so experience with any of those will be advantageous.

We hope you’ll be working with us for years to come and we don’t know where the business requirements will take us, so you need to be prepared to get out of your comfort zone and learn new things.

To give you some idea of the technology stack that we use, see a list of “stuff”, below. If you can bring one, some, all or even “Just Java”, then we’d like to speak to you please!

Primary skills

- Java 8+
- Spring Framework
- RESTful web services
- Java unit testing

Advantageous skills

- Docker
- Web security
- Agile/Scrum/Kanban
- JavaScript
- Additional OOP experience (any language)
- Git / Bitbucket
