We are looking for a Java Software Engineer (Remote Spain or Hybrid based in Barcelona, Spain) with solid foundations in one or many of the technologies of our stack (Java, SpringBoot, Oracle, Kafka, Docker, Kubernetes) and a lot of drive and mental flexibility to learn a lot about the rest of it.

Here is a little taste of your challenge:

No matter whether it is to implement a new feature, fix a bug in production, extract some data and deliver it to customer support, change system configurations, solving problems together with 3rd parties and system partners by:

  • Discuss, define, and develop enhancement and adaptions of existing products as well as new products and services, or integrations with 3rd party systems for the purpose of meeting the requirements and regulations and increasing the market reach in the respective target geographies.
  • Create solution designs and deliver complete sets of functionalities on the backend; the key technical focus of the role will be more on the backend but depending on project requirements you also step into other technical areas.
  • Work in a technically complex and sensitive environment, which will require you to build relevant functional knowledge about the products, technical knowledge about the platform’s stack and architecture.
  • Keep a keen eye on application performance, operability, robustness, monitoring and failure resilience, data privacy and the security of individual services and the whole system.
  • Take holistic responsibility including ongoing functional and performance improvements, bug fixing and issue solving on the production instances of your applications and test automation as well as necessary configuration and data changes.
  • Be involved in enabling and rolling out solutions to drive the business of large or enterprise partners and customers on various levels.
  • Apply agile methodologies to organize yours and your team’s work, make your planning and team performance transparent and to manage your stakeholders.
