Job Description

Job Title: Java Developer
Location: Liverpool
Salary: £30k - £35k plus great benefits

The Opportunity
Love to code in your kitchen? All about software in your slippers? Developing under your duvet?

We're looking for a new Java Developer to (as you might have guessed) be based from home taking on multi-platform software projects for an international media company.

(any more coding alliterations would be gratefully received)

The Role
As our new Java Developer you'll be researching, writing, testing and launching software for a global media company whose multi-platform products are used across such glamorous organisations as the NHS, London Overground and Travelodge.

You'll be involved from day one in all aspects of the project lifecycle. We believe in getting you exposed to as many elements as possible from the start so you'll sit in (virtually) on client meetings to gain the initial briefs, work with the rest of the team of Developers to develop the functional software and iron out the creases through testing.

From there you'll help take your shiny new product to market and assist with the release - a Java Developer's moment of glory!

It's not all parades and ice cream though. You also need to be around to trouble shoot the live service and advise the technical support team should issues arise post-launch.

The Candidate
If you are a Java Developer with a few year's practical experience, ideally backed up with a degree, who likes a flexible working atmosphere with lots of scope to develop your own projects and run with ideas this is the job for you!

Given the multi-platform aspect of the role (IVR, web, SMS, ANPR) the more strings you have to your bow the better - Spring and Hibernate would be great skills to have plus PHP, C# and MySQL (or similar). SOAP knowledge to mediate between them all would make your new Java Developer role a lot easier.

As already explained this Java Developer job will involve interacting with clients to bounce ideas off them so you'll need to be confident doing this. You'll be liaising with the teams in London, Exeter and Madrid plus helping mentor a Junior Java Developer also based in Liverpool so you need to be able to play nicely with others.

In return for all this we will provide a really fun, flexible working environment with lots of support, opportunities to develop your own projects and pursue your own areas of interest (that is provided its relevant to the job, researching your next holiday destination/favourite RWBY character on company time probably would be frowned upon).

The Company
Your new boss is an offshoot of a global media company whose clients include Sky and BT Sports. You'll be working in the similarly glitzy cashless payment division who develop and maintain apps, mobile and web platforms for large public and private sector clients.

The MD is Liverpool born and bred and, having been successful throughout the UK and Europe, wants to set up his new team using local talent and investing in the area. As we're in such early days with this department there is no established Liverpool office so as the Java Developer you'll be working from home and writing code in your pyjamas. Providing you're completing work to the deadlines, can act as mentor/cooler older sibling to a Junior Developer and are awake for the Skype calls with the rest of the team you can structure your own work day (or night depending when you work best!).

The Package
£30k - £35k (dependent upon experience)
25 days holiday plus bank holiday
Workplace Pension
Flexible working hours
