Team Lead Java Developer – J2EE, Spring, Maven Tomcat

Quant Capital is urgently looking for a Java J2EE Developer to join our high profile client.

Our client is a brand new investment firm driven by technology. They are well known in the media as solving one of the common problems for the retail investor and in the current climate this is a unique product. The company structure is very flat and they have grown to 30 people in almost 6 months. As their product is web based this position is key to growth and stability.

The project will be stabilising (and leading) the development of their web based platform which is built on Java and AWS EC2. This project will involve getting to know the platform and then adding greenfield functionality as well as brining the platform together. It has been rapidly developed so there are some areas that need serious work and maintenance as well as complete redo’s.

The stack is Maven, Spring, Data Nucleus on Tomcat.

I expect someone who keeps on top of the latest technologies (especially DevOps tools and methodologies) and who is prepared to take on the responsibility of keeping services running at all times.
Candidates MUST have:

§7 years commercial experience of web and core based Java J2EE.



§Ideally AWS or Cloud exposure





§Ideally exposure to Data Nucleus rather than Hibernate

§Currently Hadoop is used but not required

This role suits a well versed senior Java Developer who is happy to combine so bleeding edge development with making sure the existing stack is up to date and functional. There will be some documentation and maintenance but also the opportunity to shape the platform for the future and run a team of juniors.

The environment is that of Facebook or Google, relaxed open with time to think and make the right decisions. The atmosphere is calm and relaxed with an open dress code. This is a role for techies, those who are motivated by the sharp end of technology and the possibility of making serious money doing something you are passionate about.
My client is based in London
