Senior Java Engineer
Who we are, what we are doing?
Language Cloud is a SaaS platform developed by SDL that exposes as a service the best of our language capabilities and of the language expertise that made us leaders in the translation industry.
We are building Language Cloud in a microservice architecture using Java. We are adopters of leading OSS cloud stacks like Netflix OSS and Spring Cloud for building resilient, fault tolerant and scalable products.
The micro services developed in Java are based on Spring Boot, therefore Spring is our preferred framework. The micro services are usually exposed through a REST API and are consumed through SDKs or by our own web applications which are usually built ExtJS.
Our engineers are familiar with multiple build and deploy pipelines. We implement Continuous Delivery by using tools like Maven, Jenkins, Selenium, Cucumber and JMetter, Pact, Nexus and deploying our services through Chef recipes on a hybrid cloud offered by NTT and Amazon AWS.
We’re looking for someone that :
Loves to write code and has good algorithmic skills
Is agile so first and foremost has the right agile mindset and second is aware of principles and practices that support and scale agility
Learns and plays continuously, so is able to quickly assess the value of any technology
Has minimum 5 years of experience developing in Java; the years of experience are not that important but we would like to know what is put into those years
Is familiar with some of the Java technologies described above, where the Spring family (Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, ) has a well deserved first place
Knows how to build services that scale, in general is familiar with how to implement architectural concerns like availability, layering, reliability, reuse, serviceability and security
Cares about code quality and craftsmanship; enjoys aspects like code review, static code analysis, pyramid of tests, test automation to a high degree
Is a product developer; cares about his products and about the customers; wants to be involved in all the SDLC and beyond and consistently questions if what is going to be built is going to bring value to his customers
Is a firm believer in freedom and responsibility; this continues to be a core principle in what we do here in Language Cloud and SDL Cluj
Knows how to get things done and learned that make it run then make it right then make it fast is a good recipe for quick delivery
Wants to be part of a Scrum team that is highly self-organized, owns micro services from inception to production support (you build it, you run it mentality) and is in synch with other Scrum teams implementing Scaled Agile Framework
Believes that in modern software development attitude and motivation plus ability to learn fast is more important than skills and expertise
Takes time to sharpen the saw and to enjoy the journey
