Job Description

Job Title: Junior Java Developer
Location: Liverpool
Salary: £20k - £25k plus great benefits

The Opportunity
Do you know your way around code? Do you like pizza? Do you enjoy speaking to people? Is it your dream to develop really innovative contactless payment software?

If you answered "yes" to at least three of these questions you could be exactly the sort of person we're looking for.

Intrigued? Thinking you might get free pizza? Read on€¦

The Role
This is a big Junior Java Developer role. 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.

We're aware we're throwing you in at the deep end with this one but you will be given lots of support from the existing teams in Exeter and Madrid and it's a great chance to throw yourself in to a company which is going to put a lot of trust in you from the word "go".

Up for the challenge? Click "apply" now!

The Candidate
If you are a Java Developer with around a year's practical experience 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 string you have to your bow the better - Spring and Hibernate would be great skills to have plus HTML, JSP and MySQL (or similar). SOAP knowledge to mediate between them all would make your new Developer role a lot easier.

Even at a Junior level this Java Developer role will mean a lot of client facing work for you so you have to be comfortable speaking to and presenting your ideas in a business setting. If you're one of the rare breed who actually enjoys showing off how clever you are in front of a room full of strangers that's even better!

In return for all this we will provide a really fun, flexible working environment with lots of support and opportunities to learn from Senior Developers.

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 Junior Java Developer you'll be working from home and writing code in your pyjamas. Providing you're completing work to the deadlines 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
£20k - £25k (dependent upon experience)
25 days holiday plus bank holiday
Workplace Pension
Flexible working hours

p.s. Bluefire can't guarantee you'll get free pizza.
