- Develop, test, implement and maintain application software, writing well designed, testable, efficient code
- Take part in software and architectural development activities
- Conduct software analysis, programming, testing, and debugging
- Support continuous improvement by investigating alternatives and technologies and presenting these for architectural review

- Solid back-end Java development skills - and is happy working in a test-driven development approach
- Experience in the Spring Framework
- Solid skills with SQL and Relational Databases
It’s not just about having good development skills though - we put a lot of value on positive collaboration and growth mindset, and you should be proactive and creative.
