Do you have experience of developing in Java?

Are you passionate about developing high quality software?

Are you an enthusiastic problem solver who enjoys working as part of a team?

We are looking for Java Developers at all levels to develop the next iterations of our market-leading software. You will play a vital role as a member of one of our Scrum teams in defining and creating new features to meet the needs of our expanding customer base.

About You

  • Eager to take part, bring ideas and share your thoughts with your team and the wider business
  • Proactive and inquisitive, willing to challenge the norm to help improve the way we work
  • Passionate about collaborating with and contributing to the development of others

The Role:

You will be an active member of your Scrum team from day one working with Agile methodologies and frameworks and will commit code in your first week. You will develop the latest version of our market leading software utilising tools and practices such as pair programming, automated testing and continuous integration all supported by DevOps technologies such as Chef, Vagrant, Kubernetes, Terraform, Packer and Docker. You will develop in the latest OpenJDK, but also use Gradle, Cucumber, Jenkins, SQL, JavaScript and Groovy. Our culture nurtures continuous improvement and you will be a contributor to our investigations into new tools, frameworks and processes.  

We believe in investing in our Developers by providing laptops and dual monitors, supported by licensed software such as Ultimate IntelliJ and PluralSight training courses.

If your application is successful, the next phase of our hiring process will see you working with one of our developers on a coding challenge and then a face-to-face interview with two Scrum team members. This is an opportunity to learn more not only about the role but also about our people, culture and the way we work.

About us:

Aquila Heywood combines a passion for software with Agile methodology to create modern software solutions for businesses, pension providers and third parties that help transform how their members manage their lifelong financial journeys.

Working for an expanding established market leader you will have a real voice to influence our evolution. Continued learning and progression is ingrained in our daily life, encouraged through a variety of ways from e-learning subscriptions and a monthly down-tools day ("Hive Day") and communities of practice for learning and experimentation. Our open culture encourages wide participation and innovation. We also reward ourselves with regular socials, organised by our people. Socials are of course remotely for the time being, but we do have a fiercely competitive online pub quiz, games nights and much more!

We are very fortunate at Aquila Heywood to have grown during the global pandemic, remotely on-boarding over 35 (and counting) new recruits since the end of March 2020. We have empowered our people to determine if working from home or from the office, under the safety provisions set out by official guidelines, suits them best; giving us all greater flexibility during this challenging time.

During our application process we collect and store your personal information.
