Backend Java Developer - £85-90K - 15 Months FTC - ASAP START

Our client is one of the world's biggest media/entertainment powerhouse and they are looking for a skilled backend Java developer to work on an exciting greenfield project, estimated to last at least 15 months! This is a fantastic opportunity for the right candidate to get in-depth exposure to the media, entertainment and TV production industry, whilst also working in a dynamic team with the latest technologies! This role can pay up to £90k for the right candidate, as well as good benefits including 25 days holiday, 10% pension and a discretionary bonus, among other perks.

The right candidate for this role will have extensive experience building bespoke system builds, ideally in the finance or ERP space. Experience with bespoke financial or accounting databases would be advantageous but not essential, but at least some prior exposure to finance focused applications will be needed. The systems you will be building will integrate with several third-party systems, so experience with this will also help. Somebody who has worked in a consultancy environment, for a software house, or even an ex-contractor who is now looking to land the right permanent role, would be an excellent fit for this. After the initial 15 months contract, there will be the opportunity to become a fully-fledged permanent member of the team.

Essential experience required:

* 4 years+ backend core Java development experience
* Good database skills in SQL, MySQL or MS SQL Server
* Strong SQL skills
* Experience with User Interface frameworks: Spring MVC, Vaadin, JSF or GWT
* Prior experience working on finance and database applications
* IntelliJ or Eclipse

Desirable Skills:

* Experience with JUnit or similar testing frameworks
* Experience with continuous integration, ideally Jenkins
* Good Dependency Injection skills, either with Google Juice or Spring Framework
* Experience with automated testing (selenium, TestBench etc)

We ideally need somebody immediately, but can wait 2 weeks if needed. This role is London based, so you would need to come to the office once a week when safe to do so, but for exceptional candidates we could consider fully remote working. If you would like to learn more, please send your CV to Petria for immediate consideration! Thanks.
