ABRS Ltd. is currently recruiting for a Senior Developer or Technical Lead for an Insurance company based in Central London.

Our client is currently expanding their insurance platform’s functionality, which uses Domain-Driven Design, Event Sourcing and a microservices architecture, and are therefore looking for a senior/lead engineer with experience in creating end-to-end solutions in Java to assist with this project.

We are looking for developers who value clean, simple code and flexible, resilient architectures, and possess the ability to write clean, pragmatic OO solutions for our client.

Who you will be working with

A collaborative bunch of smart and approachable developers with many years of expertise and knowledge in a wide range of domains. The company fosters an environment of mutual trust between development and business, with a ‘we are all in this together’ attitude. And, although there’s a strong sense of teamwork, we also encourage autonomy and provide our employees with room to grow, learn and teach others.

What you will find here

A complex and interesting domain with the added spice of real commercial drivers pushing and pulling the company in directions that are hard to anticipate. But despite all of that, we have clear goals to achieve; goals we know will make this company even more successful.

Working environment

A relaxed, fun, open and honest environment that promotes trust and professionalism, with a happy slice of light-hearted scepticism thrown in for good measure. In addition, our client believes in continuous hands-on delivery, actively encouraging developers to come forward with their ideas, whilst constantly trying to remove or reduce any unnecessary bureaucracy that can complicate the development process. Finally, they adhere to a flat structure, giving everyone the same opportunities to step up and provide direct access to all stakeholders, including CTO and business leaders.

Our client also values work/life balance and thus offers flexible working hours.

Key skills:

* 6+ years of Java development experience

* Excellent understanding of OO principles + S.O.L.I.D.

* DDD experience

* Clean architectures eg. Ports and Adapters

* Exposure to Micro Service and Feed architectures

* Understand HTTP + RESTful API’s + Clients

* Linux, GIT, Maven and Gradle
