Do you want to lead the first developers through a complete backend rebuild, totally updating all systems in Java?

Would you like to build a brand new Greenfield project focused on creating a platform to cater for the 'new world' and the entire company's future requirements?

Are you motivated by agile methodologies, giving you the responsibility and opportunity to be creative and develop what you believe in?

Then awesome! This may be the place for you.

A bit about the team & responsibilities:

You will be leading a cross-functional team developing their distributed applications and tools. You will work collaboratively during the design, implementation and deployment phases as part of a big technology transformation project redefining the entire technology stack using agile methodologies and practices.

This position will suit you if you have an extensive background in Java and are ready to take a step up into a technical, hands-on leadership role. You will have a huge opportunity to influence the technical methodologies and grow in an international and modern environment, where every day is an opportunity to learn something new, working with the latest techniques on the market.

What's the goal?

The goal is to be targeting Java, Spring (APIs and frameworks), open source over Microsoft products (No SQL) and Linux databases. Building a much more complete API offering, variation of database techs and messaging brokers using Kafka as a central piece in the backend.

Who are you?

As individuals, they take responsibility for their own results of work and understand how they all play a bigger part on the journey towards the company's success. So, you will need to manage to work in a fast-paced environment with a self-driven mindset and have a sharp eye for details. They will help you set high goals for yourself and value your promises to team members and clients, delivering on deadlines and always striving for top performance.

The workplace is very diverse having people from all over the world. Work permits can be sponsored, but you must have lived in Sweden for at least 1 year to be considered.

What skills do you need?

You must be fluent in English, both speaking and written. You have an expert understanding of Java and experience in mentoring developers through the development lifecycle. Ideally, you should have the following:

  • Several years of professional Java development (an expert in the core Java language).
  • Highly experienced with the Spring ecosystem, frameworks and APIs (Core, Boot, MVC, Data, REST).
  • Experienced with design, architecture and roadmaps.
  • Experienced in leading agile practices (CI/CD, TDD, Scrum, Kanban etc).

What skills would be awesome?
