Job description

Alfa has never needed as many talented people as we do now. As our product grows, so does its complexity and so do the tasks of management, architecture, DevOps, QA and all other essential areas of software development.

We are looking for:

                                                             3+ years of professional Java development
                                                             We only consider applicants who already have the right to work in the UK

Optional technical skills:

These are some of the technologies we use day-to-day. The more of these you have experience of the better, but we can provide training where required.

                                                             Eclipse IDE
                                                             Java EE
                                                             Servlet API
                                                             Google Guice
                                                             Lucene (via Hibernate Search)
                                                             Agile & Scrum methodologies
                                                             Object-oriented design
                                                             Database design and SQL
                                                             JUnit and test-driven development
                                                             Continuous integration
                                                             XML, XSD and XSLT

Other useful skills:

                                                             HTML, CSS, Javascript
                                                             Oracle database
                                                             MySQL database
                                                             SQL Server database
                                                             JBoss, WebSphere and WebLogic application servers
                                                             JMS, including WebSphere MQ

What’s it like around the office?

We work a 40 hour week and most people are in the office between 8 am and 6 pm. We know people have lives outside of work so we try to be flexible where possible; if you need to be at home for a delivery that’s fine. We are developers; the dress code is casual and listening to music while you work is all good. We have our own cafe with free top class coffee and snacks. We have hackathons, monthly drinks, quarterly company meetings and an annual conference which is usually abroad. We have an active CSR team; we donate and volunteer.
