Our Purpose

Arcadis Gen is the new SaaS business from Arcadis, backed by a €3bn+ revenue, 27,000-person, 70-country, 130-year-old company. We are bold, dynamic, and disruptive, revolutionizing the future of digital asset management through our 250+ colleagues in over 10 countries worldwide.

Gen has one purpose: to unlock the power of data for a more sustainable, efficient, and resilient world. The world is rapidly changing, and the potential of boundless data and transformative technologies brings countless challenges. And no-one is meeting these challenges quite like we are. Our customers want digital solutions that will optimize their businesses - for better performance, reliability, and improved quality of life for everyone. And that is what we do.

The Opportunity

Gen is looking for a Software product developer to work within development team on the Software-as-a-Service platform and applications built on top of that platform. You will be expected to be comfortable working with both server-side and front end technologies.

The team is highly self-organising, and you will be expected to fit in to the self-starting, highly-motivated team ethos. You will work along side your fellow team members, and report progress to the scrum master and the product owner.

Core responsibilities include:

Building cool stuff: Build features that deliver user value; fix bugs and make sure they stay fixed for ever. Collaborate with subject-matter experts to find the best possible solution. Demonstrate your work to stakeholders in sprint review sessions.

Discover, learn and apply new technologies : Help keeping the business cutting edge by working with hot-off-the-press frameworks and features. Learn, learn, learn, and then tell the team what we should be doing. Have a can-do attitude and an enthusiasm for software technology.

Work with an agile team : Contribute to standard sprint ceremonies (planning, refinement, reviews and retrospectives). Assist the test engineers with the testing of the code you develop. Communicate what you're doing with all the other members of the team, especially the other developers.

Collaboration: Collaborate closely with the multidisciplinary teams within Gen and extend to include partnering with a wide cross section of other groups from academia to start ups and the wider community at large. This role will work closely with wider ecosystem and platform partners to ensure Gen both generously shares and takes advantage of available leverage and synergies, to each parties' mutual benefit.

Your Responsibilities
  • Front end and server-side code to deliver against user stories which meet the agreed sprint goal and the acceptance criteria of the stories and technical specification of the architecture owner
  • Collaboration with testers to ensure that newly developed features are tested in a timely manner and meet quality standards
  • Write automated tests for as much of your code as feasible - we aim for 100% coverage where practical
  • Code reviews for other team members to ensure that coding standards are maintained
  • Input into the refinement of stories during backlog refinement sessions, including tasking up of stories ready for estimation
  • Input into sprint planning sessions so that the team can effectively plan sprint deliverables
  • This role reports to architecture owner, scrum master and product owner, but as always in Agile teams, your key responsibility is to your other team members.
  • You will work primarily with team members in Serbia and UK as well as other Arcadis Gen offices.

What You Bring

The ideal candidate will be familiar with modern software development practices and coding standards. It is not necessary to have worked with our specific technologies, but it is preferable to have worked in closely related areas. Enthusiasm and a willingness to learn and adapt are more important than experience; we want you to grow and develop in Arcadis Gen, rather than arriving fully formed. It is beneficial but not essential for you to have worked in an Agile delivery team in the past.

The key skills the successful candidate will have include:
  • Technical related degree or equivalent professional qualification
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Fluent in English
  • Professional Experience in Software Development
  • Strong Java and JavaScript (Typescript) technical skills
  • Experience with Git
  • Experience with unit and integration testing (Junit, Jasmine)
  • Experience with relational databases
  • Experience with document databases is a plus
  • Experience with Spring is a plus
  • Experience with Continuous integration and delivery is a plus
  • Experience with Docker or Kubernetes is a plus
  • Experience with building web applications using JavaScript frameworks, Angular or similar is a plus
  • Experience with building hybrid mobile apps is a plus (Ionic framework, Apache Cordova) is a plus
  • Knowledge of GoF design patterns is a plus
  • Experience with Scrum methodology is a plus

We Offer

An environment with the innovative culture and entrepreneurial spirit of a start-up, but with the security of a new venture backed by a large publicly listed company.

A commitment to the principles of flexible working to enable you to have your ideal work-life integration.

A series of Healthy Working Practices across Gen, including Thinking Thursdays, a day dedicated each week to minimising meetings and maximising opportunities to reduce the Arcadis Gen load.

Social events (virtual for the time-being) and gratitude programmes, including vouchers on your birthday.

And of course, Compensation and performance incentive schemes which reward superior delivery.

Leading healthcare, financial and wellbeing benefits, with support for learning and professional development.

Equal Opportunity Statement

The community of the future is a place for everyone, and Arcadis Gen is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We know it's tough, but please try to avoid the confidence gap. You don't have to match all the listed requirements exactly to be considered for this role. All employment is based on merit and business need.
