A principal Java Developer role at a US Software company. You'll develop a unique product in the AI Space!

Java Developer- Principal

If you're a Java Developer "umming and ahing" about whether you want to be the next principal jumping on the US Software house bandwagon, perhaps you should consider the brand that paved the way for all the new companies that have just landed in the city?

Many java developers cross their fingers, wishing for a principal role at a shiny new FDI company… not realising that it might not be the most stable option due to the "B"-word (Brexit). Another problem is that the larger companies just don't seem to offer the same allure of their smaller counterparts…

Don't worry! We're looking to end the head-scratching ordeal imposed on developers looking to move into a principal position, with a role at an established US company.

The tech here is exciting and the software is disruptive- here you will lead teams in the development of cognitive software with a human-like reading ability, while working for a company that has already secured its future.

The company

  • They were FDI before FDI was cool- a Silicon Valley company that's deeply entrenched in Belfast's technology scene.
  • A company that creates products that can read like we can- using big data and AI technologies.
  • Offers a laid-back working environment with excellent career progression and employee retention.

The role:

As a Principal Java Developer, you'll be hands-on in helping actively mentoring others but most of your day-to-day work will involve you:

  • Developing a Micro-service based (SpringBoot), distributed platform that reads documents like humans do, but probably better.
  • Engineering security layers that ensure the data held on this platform is not compromised.
  • Getting to know the latest in Big Data technologies while ensuring you are up to date on the latest iteration of Java and perhaps other JVM centric languages (Scala etc).

The candidate:

You're a seasoned hand- having sharpened your skills alongside some of the most talented Java Developers has to offer. You'll have experience:

  • With messaging platforms like Kafka and working with complex data streams.
  • Extensive experience developing in Java, inclusive of engineering micro services in Spring/Spring boot.
  • Experience developing highly scaleable platforms on the JVM.

The package:

  • A salary of up to £75,000 per year.
  • Pension scheme - matched scheme up to a maximum of 6% from iManage
  • Bonus - 10% performance related bonus paid out twice a year
  • Income Protection Plan
  • 25 days holiday
