Senior Java/Spring Developer (Microservices, TDD, Cloud)
Southampton (3 days in office)
£58-63k + Bonus + BUPA

Your new company
I am engaged on a project to recruit an experienced Senior Java Developer to join an innovative global leader in trade/logistics business based in the heart of Southampton. You'll be working for a business that improves the quality of people's lives around the world with the support of a very experienced team behind you.

You'll be contributing to the rapid digital transformation and integration of a business with over 100,000 staff that were formed less than 20 years ago, so your ambition should match their growth, the sky is the limit.

This role is offered with 2 days remote, 3 days in the office in Southampton.

Your new role
This is a Senior hands-on role (predominantly Back End) with a requirement to bring new technical ideas and push continuous improvement, mentoring others within the team and being an escalation point for technical challenges. You'll be building new scalable Java/Spring components and helping to break down legacy monoliths which have supported them up to this stage of modernisation.

They are looking heavily investing in innovation and automation, ensuring they push disruptive technologies to move the sector forward and stay ahead of competition. As part of this a modernisation is needed within the Development team and as a Senior Dev you'll play a crucial role in accelerating the adoption of modern practices and tools, working alongside other Devs, PM's and QA's.

If you're looking for the stability and progression opportunities in a multi-national, without the bureaucracy associated with a corporate, then I am sure this will be of interest

What you'll need to succeed
We're looking for strong Java / Spring developers (5+ years experience), ideally with Microservices. In helping them modernise you'll champion Extreme Programming (XP) practices such as test-driven development (TDD), refactoring, continuous integration (CI) and pair programming.

You must have experiencing mentoring other Developers and will be a go-to person within the team for technical guidance.

Development experience with cloud services (AWS, Google, Azure etc) and associated architectural styles and principles will be important, and you'll be comfortable using Git, Docker, Kubernetes, Selenium, Jira and Confluence (or similar).

They are open to experience with any relational database (SQL Server, Oracle, NoSQL) and some experience with JavaScript frameworks would be a nice to have (Angular, React etc).

What you'll get in return
There is a company bonus scheme, BUPA healthcare, 25-28 holiday days + bank holidays, flexible working hours, free parking, 4x life assurance and company health cash plan. On top of this they will fund courses/qualifications to improve your skill set and you'll get access to their flexible benefits platform to select other benefits that suit your circumstances.

What you need to do now
At Hays Technology, we are shaping the future of recruitment. The rapid adoption of cloud, which is making customer interfaces more engaging and creating a seamless engagement with businesses, means that from the foundation of your organisation up, software developers are critical to success.
