Durham | £30,000.00 - 42,000.00 Per Annum

Java Developer required for a global insurance business based in Newcastle, paying up to £42000 + Benefits

This is Java Developer role and opportunity to up-skill and learn new technologies and principles, and/or drive best practice and high quality software through the software group.

Where we are normally looking for a wide range of technologies, due to location and candidate pool, this role is suited to a solid Java Developer willing to work hard and learn, to fill any specific skill gaps, to take responsibility and ownership on an impressive suite of on-going projects. Those of you that are more Senior, this will give you the opportunity to stand out from your peers and play an integral role in the business

At the very very least these new projects will run till 2023. The right attitude is far more important than a current list of skills.

You will get to work with up to date Java (we’re looking at hopefully Java 8 onwards), as well as Spring, SOAP & REST, SOLID and DRY Design Principles, Enterprise Architecture, Automation Testing, CI/CD , Agile, DevOps and you will also have ownership over your own solutions and projects whilst working with internal stakeholders.

As a Java Developer you will be working on new projects, working closely and communicating with the business, but also have the opportunity to learn new technologies and approaches whilst on the job – there is support around you but the ideal is that you can learn these yourself and ask advice where needed.

You will need a solid foundation of Java Development, however the opportunity to learn new surrounding technologies and design principals is a real positive of this business and role.

You will be working on a unique and enterprise scale re-platforming project rolling out the new system across the UK before focusing on multiple European offices and rollouts – this is part of a merger of which very rarely happens on this scale – this is a role that is much more than doing your day to day, day in day out, and will give you huge exposure to a broad and successful Software Engineering career in Java.
