Small Improvements needs a Java Web Developer

width="167"

Your responsibilities

You’ll be in charge of demanding medium-sized code projects right away and we’ll increase the task size a little every week, until you can work and lead major development efforts independently. You will demo your new features to clients and gather feedback from them. You will mentor our more junior developers, and propose sweeping architectural changes. You’ll work on tough scalability and performance problems, and challenges like “denormalisation vs eventual consistency”. We value team work, code reviews and honest feedback, but everyone has to be able to work independently as well. Despite the leadership part, this is a very hands-on position.

We’re constantly evolving: We’re adding new features and improving existing ones, optimising our database and algorithms, refactoring the service layer, culling old code, raising the security bar, and we’re rethinking usability all the time. We use Google App Engine, Apache Wicket, jQuery, LESS and lots of jUnit. We’re moving to a RESTful architecture using Angular.js now.

You’re encouraged to blog on our tech blog and to attend Barcamps, Meetups and Conferences. We sent two people to jQuery Europe in Vienna for instance, we sponsored RejectJS Berlin, Uncubed, BEDcon, and several others. The entire company spent October in New York  for our company all-hands meeting.

Your profile

You love to code and you can prove it! You have three or more years of work experience in demanding full-time positions, and several more years as a freelancer during uni.  Our other core requirement is that you’ve developed projects of your own. Show us apps or games you wrote for fun, or Open Source projects you contributed to. Non-Java OOP languages are fine too.

This is a position in Berlin. You can work from home frequently, take extended leave, or work only four days a week. We don’t have deadlines, and we’re very flexible. However, the position is mainly in Berlin, and you need to be able to drop by for the trial work, and we cannot help you with visa matters. You’ll need basic German skills as well. While our intranet and software is in English, and we all understand English well, you’ll feel left out if you aren’t able to pick up what we’re talking about in general. You don’t need to be fluent yet, but a desire to improve your German is expected.
