This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a small dynamic team that is responsible for building some of the key APIs that power Macquarie’s award-winning online and mobile banking platforms for everyday banking customers. The features we build are key to providing a great experience for our customers.

We use both Java and Scala, but forget about your usual Java EE stack, our APIs are Microservices developed using Spring Boot. Our main database is Cassandra but we also use AWS RDS. We use Spark for processing and Solr and Elasticsearch to provide our search capability. All our services are containerised using Docker and deployed to OpenShift or Kubernetes on the cloud.

As a Developer in our team, you will build and maintain microservices using industry best practices. This includes learning about the business, building and maintain high quality software in a DevOps manner, and help automate its testing and delivery. You will have excellent verbal and communication skills to be able to effectively work within a team and across different teams and businesses.  You are a fast learner and problem solver who is eager to work with new technologies.

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • proven skills with Java 8+ and/or Scala
  • in-depth knowledge of Spring Boot
  • experience in design and implementation of REST services
  • experience working with a microservices architecture and in a DevOps environment

Ideally you will also have:

  • Experience using continuous deployment and delivery (CI/CD), such as Atlassian tools (ex. BitBucket/Stash, Jira, Bamboo, etc.) and their application to Agile environments
  • Experience with Spark, Camel and/or Akka
  • Experience working with search technologies such as Solr or Elasticsearch
  • Experience working with Cassandra or other non-relational databases
