The Metro Dev team are proud of their site. Traffic has tripled over the past year and we look to achieve something similar in the coming year . To achieve that we have some really exciting projects in progress and the time has come for us to get a new (and extremely talented) Senior Java Developer.
Confident you could build a social and scalable web app viewed by millions? You should currently live, eat and breathe Java, but might want more out of life whilst remaining comfortable working in an agile way. To be honest, you should probably reckon yourself to be a pretty good all round web developer as well and if continuous deployment sounds interesting then we want to hear from you.
We aren’t just looking for a production line developer we want someone who can contribute ideas and help keep Metro ahead of the pack. We want someone who genuinely wants to improve the quality of the software we release and become an integral part of how we do development.
You’ll have the wit and personality to pull it off (and be able to put up with geek humour). If you like a fast paced environment with strong direction and the backing to make it happen then this job might be for you.
