Java Developer - Disruptive InsureTech Start-Up

Java Developer (Microservices, AWS, API's). A Java Developer is required by a disruptive Insuretech start-up in central London. You would be focusing on continuing to develop their core underwriting platform predominantly focused on Java and Groovy, in a full stack capacity with AngularJS at the front end. You'll be a Java Developer that is looking to work collaboratively in an agile team that is very keen on clean code, TDD, Automated Testing and Continuous Integration/Delivery. The software you write will employ a Microservices based architecture, and you'll be exposed to both building and consuming Restful API's.

We are looking for a Java Developer due to a period of growth that far surpassed expectations. Therefore, you'll be joining at a crucial time for the team as the platform is now undergoing a period of re-engineering in order to scale across new customers. This would see you working on very interesting proof of concepts (currently working on a Microservices POC), employing new technologies and techniques to help avoid bottle necks in the code and to ensure code performance meets expectations, as well as a transition to the cloud that is just about to get underway.

We would like to speak with a Java Developer that has a reasonable cross section of the following skills and experiences:

  • Strong underlying knowledge of Java, Groovy or other dynamic JVM languages
  • Knowledge of Spring or other common JVM frameworks
  • Experience working with either building or consuming Restful API's
  • Javascript knowledge with AngularJS, ReactJS or other common frameworks
  • Bonus experience with Continuous Integration/Delivery or AWS would be beneficial

Key details for this Java Developer position:

  • Location: central London
  • Salary: £80,000 to £100,000
  • Benefits: bonus, strong pension + work from home x1 day per week

Despite being a start-up, you would join a business that is incubated within, and extremely well-funded by a global Insurance firm. This would be very well suited to a Java Developer who is looking to work in a smaller environment where you can expect to be involved with a more diverse range of technologies. This would stretch your skill set and ensure engagement in the role as you'll always be a beginner in something, working in feature led Agile teams that rotate around the business will ensure this. You will be very well invested in as an individual, with support offered continually as you develop as an individual with a path to team lead available.
