We're looking for someone with a background in software engineering and design, and experience with Big Data, Big Query, Big Table, Java and preferably at least one other programming language.

Along with experience developing software in a SOA or micro-services paradigm, you'll have the ability to rapidly and effectively understand and translate product and business requirements into technical solutions.

You'll also have experience of: 

  • Using industry recognised frameworks and development tooling
  • Implementing programming best practice, especially around scalability, availability and performance
  • Test-driven development alongside use of automated test frameworks, mocking and unit testing tools
