You will take technical ownership for a product or software components, covering design, estimation, shaping and functional/non-functional requirements. This will involved design, developing and maintaining cloud-based software applications using Java and associated frameworks (e.g., Spring, Groovy, Jersey, JUnit, Guava, Hibernate etc).

  • Experience of technologies such as LDAP, oAuth, Messaging, SSO, BPM and Integration engines
  • Experience of delivering software using Agile.
  • Collaborate and liaise with other Version 1 team members, customer stakeholders and end users during the development lifecycle - e.g., PMs, BAs, Tester, Product, Platform etc

  • Provide effective knowledge transfer to team members and customers.
  • Manage, coach, and develop junior members of your team and wider community.

  • Annual Leave - Employees receive an annual leave allowance and up to five days can be carried forward each year if you want to save leave for a special occasion. Unpaid leave of up to thirteen weeks may also be taken.
  • Flexible Working - Many of our employees choose to take advantage of the opportunity to work from home, either on an ad hoc basis or with a regular pattern. Many also work flexible hours, depending on what works for themselves and their customers.
  • Maternity/Paternity Leave - We offer statutory maternity pay in line with your local office and after two years' service, we offer enhanced six months' paid maternity leave. We also provide two weeks full pay for new dads once probation is completed.
  • Shared Parental Leave - This enable parents to share the period of leave that could have been taken as Maternity Leave. Local employment legislation applies here - our HR department can provide more information where required.
