Junior Java Engineer

Join the Growth Story at Envitia

We’re a software and services company on a growth trajectory with 20+ years of experience in delivering world-class location and data software and expertise to customers in the public and private sector.

Following a re-organisation last year, the company had a hugely successful 2018 – all down to an amazing group of people.  We’re now looking to grow and build a team that are hungry for success. We’re creating a culture that is fun, supportive yet challenging, and we’re looking for talented like-minded people to join us on this journey.  We’re also looking for people who are comfortable in challenging the norm so we can get truly diverse thinking when solving problems and not just senior management making decisions – we really believe in empowerment.

What do we do? In short, we solve complex data problems to help our customers make better and faster decisions. We do this through our team of data consultants who undertake cutting edge R&D projects or work with customers to find the best data modelling approach, architecture and standards so they’re able to make use of their data.  Or, through our software products where we enable customers to search for, and then visualise, data so they have great situational awareness and can make better decisions.

About You

You’re not looking for a standard 9-5 role.  You want the best of both worlds: a start-up mentality with disruptive thinking, but with the security of a profitable, larger company, with a solid customer base and financial stability.

You believe you have the potential to succeed.  You want to push your boundaries but acknowledge that success comes through hard work, a positive attitude, and being surrounded by a great team that refuses to sit back and wait for opportunities to come to them.

You will need to demonstrate that you are passionate about what you do and that you drive success in your area.

Essential Skills:

  • Experience of Java coding – this could be through your degree, placement or career
  • Used to working in an agile development environment
  • Know and understand how to use Git for source code revision control and be comfortable in working with backlog and issue trackers
  • A proven and demonstrable approach to writing great software

Desirable Skills:

  • Experience with containerisation techniques such as Docker
  • Experience with Spring, including IoC, Security and Boot
  • Unit and integration testing frameworks including JUnit, Mockito and JMeter
  • Experience of integrating Maven builds into a CI setup based on Jenkins
  • Application server development using Tomcat
  • Experience with Atlassian’s BitBucket, Jira and Confluence

You will also have:

  • Really great communication skills both in spoken and written English
  • Know how to talk to both technical and non-technical people
  • The ability to work independently and as part of a team
  • A focus on high quality software with a corresponding attention to detail

Security Clearance Requirements

Many of our public sector customers require UK Security Clearance as a mandated requirement. You’ll need to provide proof of identity, employment history and right to work in the UK, along with proof of UK residency, for at least five years.

Our culture

Envitia has a valuable mix of people and backgrounds, from the brightest mathematicians and data technologists, to pragmatic program managers and energetic customer partners. Across this group there is a common thread – the need to create a defined outcome with measurable business value combined with a world class experience for our customers.

If you’re looking for a place where you can explore, learn, grow, and experiment in an environment that values you for what you bring, then come and have a chat. Our engineers and data scientists excel at what they do and are at the heart of who we are.

As a company, we’re big enough to make a real difference to our customers but small enough to know each other well, have fun, be flexible, and appreciate what each other brings to the company.
