What you'll be doing:

The Developer is part of an agile team contributing to the build of digital products, developing new and enhancing existing software components.

The Developer's primary role is to develop clean code, adhering to SOLID principles that are well-tested, performant and maintainable.  They should conform to the agreed development lifecycle, frameworks and quality criteria and collaborate readily with other agile delivery team members to enable the right outcome for the customer.  This includes working with Quality Assurance to support test automation, DevOps engineers to support security, configurability and smooth code deployment, plus pairing with other team members / new colleagues to assist with knowledge transfer, onboarding and pair coding/code reviews.

In this role, the Developer will be responsible for:

  • Delivery of high-quality development work results (structure, content, form)
  • Integrating the application front-end services (with a basic understanding of web front-end technologies)
  • Managing the exchange of data between different backend services (owned by separate development teams) and front-end application and third-party API integration
  • Development of all server-side logic, working with BA and Quality Assurance to ensure business logic is implemented as required and fully testable
  • Introducing and owning technical user stories for integration and service optimisation
  • Documenting solutions through flowcharts, diagrams, code comments, clear code and via Confluence/knowledge base articles
  • Ensuring compliance with quality guidelines (Unit Tests, Code Quality, Test Driven Development)
  • Addressing non-functional requirements and operational/support-relevant topics during conception and implementation (e.g. logging, capacity/performance management, monitoring and distributed tracing/debugging)
  • End-to-end thinking during development – supporting and improving releases from test to integration and production environments
  • Proactive skill and artefact building about assessing and adopting new technologies
  • Presentation and demonstration of concepts and services via show-and-tell demos, tech talks and taking part in direct user feedback and evaluation sessions
  • Providing and collaborating to produce development work estimates
  • Following agile software development lifecycles, but maintaining foresight to reduce tech debt where possible and not at the cost of good documentation, test automation and non-functional considerations
  • Working under pressure and at pace when required to meet urgent client needs

What you'll need:

In order to be successful in this role, you will have proven experience in and a solid understanding of most of the following:

  • Delivering integration micro-service patterns using Java Spring Boot
  • Applying SOLID principles and creating clean code
  • Experience working with streaming data (e.g. Apache Kafka) and messaging architectures
  • API specification/design and documentation
  • Working with SQL and NoSQL data sources such as Postgres and Mongo
  • Experience with DevOps tooling and application hosting services such as:
    • Jenkins
    • Atlassian stack, Azure DevOps / Docker / Kubernetes
  • Great attention to detail, organisational skills and a keen analytical mind
  • Desirable experience with front-end JavaScript frameworks, such as React
  • Proven delivery success in large-scale development projects (including, for example, enterprise integration patterns, high assurance / secure services, high throughput/availability non-functional demands)
  • Demonstrable collaborative team working and taking ownership of delivery commitments and addressing challenges

...and finally:

Our team believes in hard work. We celebrate each other's success and are always honest with each other to ensure we grow together. We aim to build a strong professional community where each individual can mentor others and be mentored, and can grow professionally through training and support to reach their career goals. Our focus on clients, teamwork and foresight forms our DNA and we are looking for someone who shares and embodies these core values, leading by example.
