How you’ll do it:
Work as part of a team of talented engineers you will:
Turn concepts and requirements into highly available web applications and systems using industry standard languages and technologies such as Kotlin, Java, Spring Boot, Kafka, Kubernetes, MySQL
Actively participate in application design, database design, data-flows and detailed technical design. Ensure that analysis includes the wider view of technical and business impact
Balance the commercial needs of the business against the ideal technical design, proposing sound phased or tactical implementations where appropriate
Share your experience by mentoring more junior squad members
Actively support the implementation of continuous integration to enhance deployment processes in line with SB&G delivery/release evolution plans
How we work:
Our engineers work closely with colleagues in all positions, so a good level of interpersonal skill is important to us
We are not building a monolithic enterprise app - think microservices and a lean approach with quick running tests and deployment. This should be something you’re passionate about too
You will need to demonstrate good levels of skills in Java, Kotlin, or something comparable, and be comfortable with techniques such as message queues, data stores and know what makes a good RESTful API
Data features heavily and you should appreciate there are many storage patterns, knowing the strengths and weaknesses when compared to traditional relational databases
You will be happy to pick up code in other languages, especially those in the open source web development arena
We expect candidates to be comfortable working in a Linux environment
Hands-on experience with container platforms is a bonus
We value previous experience developing for high-demand & high-availability environments
