Analysis and Design: understanding of both functional and non-functional requirements to produce well designed software, including the ability to communicate your design to others including clients

What we are looking for:
Strong core Java development skills
A minimum of 4 years industry experience
Test automation experience using frameworks such as jUnit, PowerMock, Mockito, etc
Strong “Software Engineering” fundamentals and practical experience
Exposure to Test Driven Development or Behavior Driven Development methodologies
Deployment automation technologies such as Chef, Puppet, Cobbler, Vagrant, Ansible, Docker
Exposure to iterative/agile development methodologies (SCRUM, XP, DSDM, RUP, Kanban etc.)
Exposure to automated integration testing through tools like Selenium, Fitnesse, Cucumber

Engagement Types
We undertake a wide variety of work and although no two engagements are the same, a BJSS Development engagement will typically:

Project Delivery
Working within a team on the end-to-end delivery of software projects for our clients, our developers use industry best-practice techniques to design, implement and then deliver solutions.
Projects may be delivered using our BJSS Enterprise Agile approach, or the clients preferred method, and may be a pure BJSS team or an integrated BJSS/client team.

Consultancy
Clients turn to us for development-based consultancy services such as the design and development of their IT systems, reviewing their existing technology stack and providing strategic input for future extensions to their IT systems. These are both advisory and in project delivery capacity at client sites.
Engagements may be delivered from our own offices or at one of our client office locations – an element of travel is part of the job.

BJSS is committed to equal opportunities and diversity so we want to ensure that our recruitment and selection processes are fair to all who wish to apply.
