  • Coach and collaborate inside and outside the team. You can offer meaningful perspectives on integration design patterns, concepts, alternatives and best practices.
  • Work in a hybrid cloud infrastructure, considering the implementation of functionality through several distributed components and services.
  • Work closely with our stakeholders and external partners to translate product goals into actionable engineering plans.


You have:

  • A strong background in Java development

  • A strong background in fostering a culture of continuous delivery, test automation and agile development.
