Sittingbourne, Kent

Up to £30,000 DOE


Our client is looking to recruit a self-motivated and highly service-orientated Java Developer. Ideally you will have 1 year + of commercial experience, but they will consider recent graduate.

Most importantly they are looking for candidates with a desire to work on Cloud projects and pursue a career path into the challenging world of Enterprise Information Management.

If you like the challenge of big, complicated and data-oriented projects, often with high security demands, then you will enjoy working with our client. Teamworking with Cloud Architects, Cloud SysAdmins and the wider Managed Service team, you will play an important role in building, delivering and continuously improving Cloud Hosted Services.

The platforms managed are currently at Amazon, Rackspace, Azure and others, including a small number of on premise applications.

Throughout all of these activities the ability to chunk up to the picture and understand how the work package fits into the delivery of customer value is important.

The role also includes the challenge of dealing with the ‘people’ factor and the wide variety of national and corporate cultures that are met in daily business. You will be able to draw on a breadth of communication skills to ensure the service user and customer expectations are met.
