Permanent Principal Java Developer

Auto Trader UK – Posted by Auto Trader UKAnywhere

Job Description

We’re looking for Principal Java Developers to join us. Our Principals play a vital role in the day to day running of the squad and enjoy sharing their experiences and skills to help develop those around them. They’re on hand to solve difficult technical problems whilst considering user experience, performance, quality and security. They devise elegant and creative solutions to challenging problems and highlight issues with existing architecture and code, and tidying it up. The wider community of technical leads and developers work together to promote great software design and quality.

We’ve adopted the tribes and squads model. Each tribe focuses on a different customer group, product or service which in turn determines the technologies used in the squad. Our cross functional squads are typically made up of product and delivery leads, developers (Java/JavaScript/Python), UX designers, test and data analysts. Working in a dynamic, Agile environment means collaboration is key.

We’re looking for technical leaders with an excellent understanding and working knowledge of Java and the JVM. A deep architectural understanding of web applications and RESTful services is critical. Experience with JavaScript frameworks such as Angular or ReactJS would be very helpful too. We’re also looking for someone with knowledge of open source libraries, tools and frameworks, e.g. logging, test, build. Excitement for the latest trends in application design, combined with a pragmatic approach to consistency and simplicity. Experience with Software development methodologies like XP, Scrum, Kanban, and TDD, and an interest to learn more about new languages and frameworks. We would also like to hear how you’ve coached and mentored developers in previous roles.

We offer a salary between £50,000 – £70,000 and an excellent flexible benefits package including 25 days’ holiday, pension and healthcare. We believe in providing more than just salary and benefits. We’ll give you time and support so you can develop your career. Our developers attend conferences, we host meet-ups in our event space and offer masterclasses focusing on communication, team working and leadership. As you can see, it’s not limited to what you learn at your desk. If we sound like the kind of place for you then we would love to hear from you.

Everyone is unique in their own way and we are looking for people from all walks of life to become part of our inclusive culture. We’re committed to making Auto Trader a diverse and inclusive environment for everyone. Diversity for us means respect for and appreciation of differences in: gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, race and ethnic origin, religion and faith, marital status, social, educational background and way of thinking. Our dedication is to ensure you get the chance to be the best that you can be, showcase your full potential and make the right choice for you.
