Java Cloud Infrastructure Developer (25275)

Cambridge (South)
£45k plus great package and perks

Hey there! This is just one of many top career opportunities ECM can suggest — if this job isn't right for you, let us do the hard work! Tell us what you're looking for and we'll start searching for you. We promise to treat your CV as strictly confidential.

Private cloud for scientific research, 3 year renewable contract, top benefits

This unique institution supports breakthrough scientific research across the globe. This new position offers 3 years of challenging work for a skilled Java professional, renewable up to 9 years, with a superb and family-friendly benefits package, and support transitioning to your next role.

You will join the team who provide the “private cloud” infrastructure and services both within the organisation and to a global contingent of partners, whose computing power is turned to advanced data science tasks to accelerate the course of cutting-edge research.

Your concise and tailored CV will demonstrate that you:

  • Have extensive Java programming skills, including application architecture (approx. 4 or more years full time would be indicative)
  • Have equally extensive experience developing production-quality Java applications for the web (not just websites), including RESTful web services
  • Embrace Agile development, continuous integration, continuous delivery and deployment, and a culture of automated testing
  • Are skilled with Linux, and would enjoy working exclusively on Linux
  • Are happy to work with data and databases
  • Have practical experience with containers and orchestration, ideally including Docker, Kubernetes or comparable products

CVs not demonstrating Java experience but with comparable experience in C# and ASP.NET MVC, Ruby on Rails, or comparable technologies will be reviewed, provided that you are confident you could rapidly transition to Java and Spring through your own efforts and would be interested in doing so.

Any additional experience with JavaScript (especially Angular, React or similar frameworks), ElasticSearch, Lucene, Kibana, Python and/or MongoDB is beneficial.

You will work on-campus amongst excellent facilities and in the heart of one of the Cambridge area’s most advanced scientific communities. A comprehensive suite of benefits are available, including an exceptional pension, and a variety of family-friendly perks.

If you’re interested, please do get in touch with ECM Selection – whilst we can only put forward the top few candidates, we do read every CV and try to respond to everyone. If you’re already registered with us, recommend a friend or colleague for £250.
