Software Engineer (Java, Kotlin)

Leeds

Up to £550 per day

My market-leading client are currently recruiting for a top quality, enthusiastic engineer from a relevant to work in their lean squads on an interim basis. As a Software Engineer, you will be working with the latest technologies on my clients next generation in-house platforms, primarily written in Kotlin and leaning heavily on message-oriented microservice design patterns.

You will be keen to share your skills and experience with more junior members of the squad to help them in their development.

You will be self-motivated and willing to contribute to design at all levels, listening and learning from the talented people around you. We believe we have a strong culture and we want you to be a part of it.

How you'll do it:

Reporting to the Lead Software Engineer, you will:

  • Turn concepts and requirements into highly available web applications and systems using industry standard languages and technologies such as Kotlin, Java, Spring Boot, Kafka, Kubernetes, Docker, MySQL, RabbitMQ, AWS.
  • Actively participate in application design, database design, data-flows and detailed technical design. Ensure that analysis includes the wider view of technical and business impact
  • Balance the commercial needs of the business against the ideal technical design, proposing sound phased or tactical implementations where appropriate
  • Share your experience by mentoring more junior squad members
  • Actively support the implementation of continuous integration to enhance deployment processes in line with SB&G delivery/release evolution plans

Key Competencies:

  • Our engineers work closely with colleagues in all positions, so a good level of interpersonal skill is important to us
  • We are not building a monolithic enterprise app - think microservices and a lean approach with quick running tests and deployment. This should be something you're passionate about too
  • You will need to demonstrate good levels of skills in Java, Kotlin, or something comparable, and be comfortable with techniques such as message queues, data stores and know what makes a good RESTful API
  • Data features heavily and you should appreciate there are many storage patterns, knowing the strengths and weaknesses when compared to traditional relational databases
  • You will be happy to pick up code in other languages, especially those in the open source web development arena
  • We expect candidates to be comfortable working in a Linux environment
  • Hands-on experience with AWS is a bonus
  • We value previous experience developing for high-demand & high-availability environments
