Eindhoven - Lead Developer Java

Location: Eindhoven, campus of Eindhoven University of Technology

Hours per week: Full-time [40h]

Think and work level: HBO or Academic | Computer Science

 

As a Lead Backend Developer [Java] you work with other developers and project managers, ensuring a continuous and timely delivery of qualitative solutions, while acting as the go-to person for development advice and technical guidance in your team (Java & microservice architecture).

 

What you tell your friends you do:

“As a lead you help other lead developers via our techboard. I contribute to our projects and so much more such as the growth of and knowledge sharing with co-workers. I usually start my mornings having a catch-up with the pack. Then the daily stand-up follows. If there are any issues, I will gladly help! When my team cracks on with its work, I use Java to help them design and develop a highly scalable microservice application and event-driven systems. After all, I need to stay on top with whatever is happening in my environment. In the afternoon I do my best to impress a potential customer (maybe this could be the next project we land?!). Still can’t skip the merge requests either – we discuss various approaches, before finally grabbing a beer and calling it a day!”

 

But wait… what does that mean, day-to-day?

  • Steering ahead the technical direction & the project delivery;
  • Code some (more complex) elements in Java in the current projects;
  • Ensuring the quality of the project & facilitating the QA within the team;
  • Making sure everybody knows what they need to do (no loose ends);
  • Collaborate closely with other developers and project managers, and provide Java-related tips & tricks company wide;
  • Help potential customers with providing a technical solution to solve their challenges and discuss the possible architecture together with other developers, so we can provide the best result;
  • Develop, develop, develop, of course!
 

What we need from you:

  • 4-8 years of software development experience with a solid background in backend development, specifically Java Spring 5+ and Kafka. Nice to have is some experience with C# and .NET Core 3;
  • You are not afraid to quickly establish yourself as the go-to person for anything Java related (e.g. microservice architecture), so you are eager to share your insights and guide your colleagues, especially at a hands-on technical level;
  • You obtained a professional level of English;
  • You ask the right questions and balance expectations, so that quality is never compromised for the sake of only fulfilling requirements;
  • You readily sink your teeth in anything that will grow you and aid your teammates’ knowledge;
  • You enjoy working on different, challenging projects and are driven by innovation;
  • You have experience with daily stand-ups, refinements, planning & retrospectives and you know how to create and estimate tickets from user stories;
  • You know how to let Jira and Git support the way of working for you and your team.
