As a Software development Engineer1 in this team, you will collaborate with other experienced software engineers to drive improvements to our technology, design and develop new services and software solutions, and build and track metrics to ensure high-quality results. You will have the chance to work with business partners, leadership and other software developers, influence and drive product vision and lead the design of our systems. We guarantee you'll learn a lot and won't be bored!

You'll be responsible for:
  • Writing code - lots of it. Much of our code is in Java, but we use all kinds of languages and frameworks, e.g spring, Cassandra, Redis, Docker, Kubernetes, Wiremock, AWS, and we welcome programmers of all backgrounds
  • Working in an agile team and look for ways to continuously improve through asking and providing feedback.
  • You will provide technical guidance to other team members, review work of peers and more junior developers.
  • You will act as a point of contact for technical issues for specific work streams within a project.

  • Proactively monitor the health of applications owned by the team and address issues
  • Encourage people to look at new ways of doing things
  • Take care of our development tools and improve our continuous deployment process

Who you are-
We don't believe in skill matching against a list of a buzzword 
We look for smart people with good general programming skills because we believe that exceptional developers can learn new technologies quickly and well. However, it wouldn't hurt if you have experience with some of the following (or a passion to learn them):

  • Significant experience in Java and web technologies
  • Solid experience building APIs and microservices
  • Docker, Bamboo and Ansible experience
  • Knowledge/experience with AWS services is a big plus
