Save the Children UK believes every child deserves a future. In the UK and around the world, we work every day to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We ensure children's unique needs are met and their voices are heard. We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach.
Reporting directly to the Digital Technology Lead, the Java Engineer is responsible for designing, developing and maintaining the next iterations of our applications and platform.
Using technologies such as Java, REST API, Github and JUNITs to develop back-end services and microservices, the Java Engineer will be an active member of a cross-functional Scrum team whose role it is to keep deliver great features and value to current and existing fundraising supporters.
We believe all our software should be responsive, scalable, and resilient to failure. Our pursuit of these qualities means that we use leading technologies and practices such as automated testing and continuous integration and constantly look to nurture our culture of continuous improvement.
This is a hands-on technical role and the Java Engineer will play a key part in the implementation stage of our digital transformation programme.

The Senior Media Manager will also support our commitment to celebrate diversity, challenge inequality, and build an inclusive environment for every one of our employees so we can better represent the children we protect.
