Java developers, cast your eyes here!

I have a brand new, multiple opportunities with a fantastic software company in central Bristol, who are offering their employees a career with a blend of autonomy, innovation, encouragement, and a warm family feel ?

Have you been thinking of making a move? Looking to work in a company where the work you do will have a visible impact?

Look no further! I have up to 5 vacancies with this business, and they’ve been growing and expanding across all parts of the company due to the popularity of their product. It’s very well loved and admired by banks all around the world. That being said, you can feel confident that you have a safe & secure future with them with a product that is in very much high demand across the financial industry.

The company & their culture:

Something I think is awesome about this SME business… they were named within the top 5 companies chosen by Google for Anthos, alongside NASA! Their entire business is made up of just under 200 employees, so whilst they may be small – they have a huge presence and are providing high quality products to banks around the globe.

They are very conscious of their employee’s mental health and wellbeing, and since the start of the pandemic they changed their holiday allowance to an unlimited paid allowance – to ensure people were getting the breaks they needed.

A recent employee engagement survey showed that their employee engagement was over 80% which is outstanding. Their people are happy, working hard and enjoying the work they are doing, which clear shows in that survey!

The Projects & Tech:

Right now, they are working on multiple projects such as a migration to a microservices based architecture. They are leveraging technologies such as Java, Spring Boot, Kafka, React, GraphQL, Kubernetes, Spring Cloud and more! They have 2 different teams, so you can essentially choose which team would be better suited to your skillset and interests.

If you are someone who enjoys writing good, clean, well-tested code, as well as exploring different technologies to find the best solution to tricky problems. You would absolutely love the culture of their engineering team, you can expect to be pair-programming, working in an Agile team and be given the chance to make your own suggestions/improvements for what might work better.

Experience we’re looking for:

  • At least 2+ years’ experience working in a professional setting.
  • Good core knowledge & skills with Java & Spring technologies
  • The desire to solve problems independently, with an inquisitive mind.
  • Experience with either Oracle or PostgreSQL/MySQL
  • You’ve worked in an Agile development team previously.
  • Experience migrating to a microservice based architecture would very helpful.

Remote Working Policies: They plan to have a Hybrid model but are still figuring out what that looks like as restrictions are being lifted. For now they are fully remote, with the office open for those who want to go in. They will continue to be flexible moving forwards & plan to work around employee’s individual circumstances.

Please get in touch with Steph Jackson at SR2 if you have any questions, or if you apply with your CV I will get in touch to share the details.
