Your skills

We’re looking for a passionate Java developer with demonstrable professional experience in analysis, design, implementation and delivery of applications in Java technology. A true ‘software craftsman’ who understands that software development is a craft.

  • You write qualitative, readable code, refactoring when necessary. You guarantee quality through test-driven development and continuous learning. Knowledge of test-driven development is a plus.
  • You have excellent knowledge of OO design and design patterns and current Java UI libraries such as Swing and JavaFX
  • You’re experienced in application integration and relational databases
  • You’re familiar with front-end JavaScript frameworks like Angular and Bootstrap
