Software Engineer for Java Backend

Hanover - Germany
Software Engineering
What your job will involve: 
  • As part of an agile and motivated team, you will be jointly responsible for the development of sophisticated software projects, also contributing significantly to the technical implementation.
  • As a ‘software artisan’, you regard the sustainable design and outstanding quality of your software as key.
  • Together, you will develop bespoke products for the insurance, financial services and mechanical engineering industries. The main focus of our solutions is to provide business value for customers and good user experience for end customers.

What you should offer:
  • After completing your degree, you have maintained a strong interest in new topics and developments and have already gained initial experience in project work.
  • Software development with a current Java stack is a particular hobby of yours (Java 8+, Spring Framework, Spring Boot). You have a good awareness of what quality means and the skills required to achieve it, such as testing on different levels in an agile environment and test automation.
  • You have a keen interest in current technologies and ideally already have some experience, particularly in the areas of backend development, databases (relational and NoSQL), cloud computing (AWS, Azure), Restful APIs and BigData. DevOps is in your DNA and you are proficient in the development, use and operation of a system (e.g. using Docker, Chef, Kubernetes).
  • You are also proficient in dealing with architecture concepts and design patterns. You don’t just leave ensuring quality to others. For you, readability and ease of maintenance are key.
  • Your fluent German and very proficient English add the finishing touch to your profile.
