Senior Java Developer

  • Job ID:V-724
  • Posted:12/04/17
  • Type:Permanent
  • Salary:Competitive + stock
  • Location:London, UK

We are looking for a talented Software Engineer to work closely with our CTO to design and build our Java backend.

We are an early stage startup founded by an experienced team who have successfully built a similar business before. We have built the core of the platform and we are now looking to expand our team after our first round of funding.

Our goal is to make B2B orders as simple as shopping online. B2B commerce, and in particular international trade is still dominated by lots of paperwork, faxes and telephone calls. Our goal is to reinvent this world from the ground up using a drastically simplified model of B2B orders, REST APIs and potentially Blockchain.

We are committed to building a company that is open and culturally diverse. We believe that a completely flat, self-managed organization is the best way to stay agile and enjoy our work. With freedom also comes responsibility. We are looking for people that care and can work independently.

You will become an owner in the business and get the opportunity to shape a new platform from the start. You main responsibility will be development, architecture, and deployment, but you will also be involved in the end-to-end process from product ideas to operations.

We are looking for a Senior Developer. We use the latest Java 8 technology with the Spring framework, in an Agile environment.

We develop containerized Docker micro services deployed onto AWS. The services communicate with each other through REST APIs and we make extensive use of HATEOAS. We are considering extending into Blockchain to make order management open and secure.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Java 8
  • Spring (Framework, Boot, Data, Batch, Security)
  • Groovy
  • Strong Agile experience
  • Strong experience with Microservice architecture
  • Experience with AWS and
  • Experience with Docker
  • Continuous Delivery methodologies and tools 

The benefits of the role include:

  • Share options
  • A level of personal growth that you can’t get anywhere else, work with an experienced team and shape your own role as the company grows
  • Be involved in company strategy, product and positioning
  • Full internal transprancy on company performance
  • Flexible location and working hours – we care about results, not facetime
  • A close team with frequent team outings
  • The opportunity to be the owner of a fast growing business
