Java Developer - PropTech Start-Up | Java, Kotlin, Node | Polyglot Mindset


£80,000 per annum plus equity

Are you a Java Developer who thrives in start-up environments? Do you have a polyglot mindset? As a Java Developer are you open to using Node and Kotlin?

If so, this could be the perfect next role for you!

Our client is changing the game in the PropTech sector and with Series A funding in the pipeline, is now looking to build out their software engineering team by hiring a talented and flexible Java Developer. You'll work alongside a hugely impressive and supportive CTO as you build out B2C and B2B marketplace platforms.

Backed by some of the industry's biggest names and solving genuine problems for thousands of customers, now is a great time to join in a newly created role and really make your mark.

Java Developer - You'll initially be building the platform using Node which might seem strange for a Java Developer! However, the CTO is looking for Software Engineers who have the in-depth back-end engineering knowledge you get from being a strong Java Developer and they will be looking to move the platform to Kotlin towards the end of the year. You don't need to have knowledge of Node but, naturally, it would be beneficial if you have some understanding.

Required Skills for the Java Developer:

  • An open mind!
  • A love of the possibilities (and challenges!) inherent in start-ups!
  • Extensive knowledge of designing and building microservices using Java.
  • Knowledge of Node or Kotlin would be great but not necessary.
  • Understanding of Cloud-native technologies like AWS/GCP.
  • Excellent appreciation of Agile and software engineering best practice.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a Java Developer to join a well-backed start-up as they continue their journey moving the platform from Node to Kotlin. Please reply with your CV or call Simon for a chat.
