The opportunity

We are now seeking a talented and highly skilled Senior Software Engineer to play a critical role in gathering requirements and developing new components as part of the Precision Health Applications product portfolio.

  • A degree in computer science, software engineering, information technology or a related field
  • Demonstrated experience in software design and development, operating at a senior level
  • Proficient programming skills in Java (preferably experience with Java 8) with the ability to work comfortably in a Linux environment
  • Demonstrated experience with Spring Boot, NoSQL databases and in developing REST APIs
  • Hands-on experience with micro-services-driven architectures and associated technology stack – e.g., Docker, Kubernetes, ElasticSearch
  • Demonstrated experience with dependency management and revision control software such as Maven and Git and continuous delivery tools such as Bamboo/Jenkins
  • Ability to analyse and figure out potential performance bottlenecks in the application
  • Desirable experience with deploying software via the AWS stack
