— Bath's best start-up, learn Scala
A rapidly expanding and market leading software business in central Bath are looking continue growing their team with the addition of a Java Developer, primarily working on their hugely successful product as well as helping to develop their new products moving forward.

What skills you’ll need
You’ll need at least 5 years’ experience working as a Back-End Developer, primarily based around Java. You’ll have had to have designed and developed applications using JavaEE. You’ll also need core experience in developing web apps using at least one common web framework, such as JSF, Wicket, GWT or Spring MVC. A strong understanding of Relational Databases will be important, as well as good knowledge of NoSQL. You’ll need to be familiar with Object Orientated analysis and design. You’ll also have the chance to learn and use Scala and functional programming skills so any experience with those would be a bonus but in no way essential for any application.
What you’ll be doing
You’ll be a core member of the team helping develop and maintaining their current product and will eventually look to move on to further versions as they are created. You’ll be contributing to all phases of the development cycle, helping to build high-quality, scalable software applications. Guaranteeing that all code will pass rigorous standards will be key to the role, ensuring well-designed and efficient code that follows the required specifications agreed with other teams and clients. You’ll prepare and assist in the production of further software component releases as well as keeping up to date with new tech and practices to suggest improvements within the business and tech stack.
What you’ll get in return for your talents
As well as a competitive salary (to £50K) there’s the incredible opportunity to work on an entirely unique product that already has an incredible pipeline of orders, not to even mention the further interested parties the sales team just can’t get round to yet! As with any business at this stage, you are joining at the perfect time to benefit from the rapid period of growth they are currently going through. With a high level of autonomy and personal responsibility, you’ll be able to help mould what the future of the company looks like tech wise, as well as a whole. There will be potential future opportunities for progression within the team and business as well.
