A software developer with Kotlin or strong Java is sought to join an exciting SaaS platform based client as they look to scale their already burgeoning engineering team. Please note this role is operating OUTSIDE IR35.

We are building a team of developers to re-engineer an existing line of business application. We're quite agile, with a strong focus on testing, pair programming and refactoring skills. We manage continuous delivery through trunk-based development and have ambitions for continuous deployment.


Our stack is Kotlin on http4k on Kubernetes on AWS. We are early in the process, so still finding the architectural patterns that work for us and the business. We're smart and optimistic, and things are about the right amount of flexible and exciting. We're looking for good programmers. Preferably people who share our love for Kotlin, but if your Java is solid and you've seen enough Kotlin to think you'll like it, then we're happy to pair with you. Full-stack is good, but so is just having an appreciation of the challenges that our front-end and ops specialists face, and a willingness to pick things up when you need them. We could reel off a list of skills and technologies, but the truth is that the code is the key thing. If you can help us to get and keep our codebase clean, flexible, and understandable, and you're a nice person, then we should talk.

Requirements- Essential

  • Kotlin experience ideal OR strong Java and keen to upskill in Kotlin.
  • Microservices development experience.
  • Cloud services experience (AWS/Amazon Web or GCP/Google Cloud or AZURE).
  • TDD.
  • Paired programming.

Desirable

  • Kubernetes.
  • Docker.
  • CICD.
  • Javascript/REACT development experience.
