Role Purpose
The Java Web Developer’s main focus will be on developing, improving and resolving issues on the system and APIs that our client works with. The role will involve adding new functionality, maintaining existing functions, using Java and some Coldfusion (training provided) as well as assisting the team in working on a number of web services, developed internally. This will require some contact with 3rd parties to support new integrations, in addition to assisting the support of existing implementations. This role will form part of a larger development team, so there will be opportunities to be involved in front end development of the website, although this is not essential as part of the role.
