An experienced Java Engineer with a strong cloud computing background to support the backend development for products in the insurance sector.

We are a team of 13 backend-oriented engineers operating on the JVM, where our primary language is Java. Our tech stack is focused around the Spring Framework and its surrounding ecosystem, which provides a versatile and established foundation for our projects. We use PostgreSQL as our go-to RDBMS for relational database needs, but we also employ several other services, including Elasticsearch, Redis, and RabbitMQ, in our projects.

The team is working on a number of digital services, primarily in the domain of smart home appliances, where we design and implement various APIs and solve complex integration challenges. Our goal is to produce clean, maintainable, and well-tested code while applying domain-driven design and enterprise integration patterns. The nature of backend-oriented work also puts us in a position to collaborate with many other teams within our organization – from Mobile and Web to DevOps, and clearly, the QA.

Ideally, we are looking for someone with a strong cloud computing background (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, or serverless) and has experience with refactoring large, monolithic services into a microservice-oriented architecture.


Qualifications & Experience

  • at least 5 years of experience in backend development using Java or another JVM language (Groovy, Kotlin, Scala…)
  • deep understanding of Spring Framework and its surrounding ecosystem
  • deep understanding of relational databases (preferably PostgreSQL) and data modeling
  • deep understanding of HTTP-based APIs
  • knowledge of software development patterns
  • strong written and verbal communication skills in English

Bonus points

  • experience with NoSQL data stores (e.g. Redis, Elasticsearch)
  • experience with cloud platforms (e.g. AWS, Azure, Google Cloud)
  • experience with messaging systems (e.g. Kafka, RabbitMQ) and messaging-based architectures
  • experience with defining CI/CD pipelines
  • experience with agile methodologies and code reviews


Your responsibilities

  • planning, developing, deploying, and maintaining various software solutions
  • defining tasks and providing accurate time estimates
  • writing clean, maintainable, and thoroughly tested code
  • rolling out new features and analyzing results based on feedback from QA Engineers and users
  • proactively collaborating with other developers in cross-functional teams as well as with stakeholders and clients
  • presenting your solutions to clients and colleagues
  • utilizing agile methodologies in development (we offer training if required) participating in code reviews, pairing, knowledge-sharing sessions
  • continually improving your skills and encouraging others to do the same
