Our client is a renowned retailer here in the UK with a website that hits a consumer base of over 30 million people on a daily basis. With a switch in focus from product-led development to the core emphasis being put on their consumers, we are looking for someone who is up for the challenge of disrupting the previous business model and injecting new ideas.
We are therefore looking for someone who will take ownership of what they do. Working in smaller, ‘mini start-up’ type teams, this person will need to write clean, tested code that will impact the wider remit of the business and the 300,000 people that access the site on a daily basis.
The business will offer two paths to their Engineers; one to become an ‘Individual Contributor’ – someone who loves building things, the other is ‘Management’ – where you have the potential to work up to managing a team of up to 25 engineers.
Skills / experience required:
• Proven Java development experience
• Agile Programming experience (XP)
• Experience with continuous integration (CI) and versioning control tools - GIT, SVN
• Demonstrable experience of test-driven development (TDD) + BDD
• Cloud-based design or development background – or hosting (AWS)
• Java 8 / Spring Boot
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a business that will dedicate 20% of your time to training you on a language/technology of your choice, along with offering a comprehensive benefits package.
