My client is looking for an enthusiastic, passionate and self-motivated Senior Full Stack Software Engineer (Java and Javascript) to assist them in defining and deliver new software (sub-)systems and extend existing systems.

You will be supporting other developers as they carry out sprints of design and implementation work and personally undertaking more complex development tasks from time to time

If you understand how to define technically robust and correctly estimated development proposals, how to analyse and solve difficult problems across the stack, and how to main contributions to a development team through execution while quality assuring their work during implementation, then this could be the role for you.

A perfect match for my client would be someone with a BSc in a STEM subject, who is able to draw on industry-wide best practice and a broad range of technical knowledge, thrives on constantly learning about ever-evolving technologies and is an excellent verbal and written communicator.

You should also be familiar with SCRUM methodology and ensuring version control and release management based on GitFlow.


Defining software architectures

  • Support architecture evaluation by testing throughout the software development lifecycle, giving PeopleFluent’s customers confidence that the system will work when rolled out
  • Collaborating closely with all products stakeholders (ranging from the development team to stakeholders who have an interest from a security, database, operations, maintenance, QA and support perspective) to ensure that the software development will successfully integrate with its environment

Delivering software architectures

  • Support the team leads with coaching and mentoring other developers as needed
  • Support quality assurance by contributing to code standards, design principles and source code analysis tools through to the use of continuous integration, automated unit testing, deployment automation and code coverage tools
  • Designing, developing and testing your own code where appropriate
