Senior Application Developer

About the Position

Contrast is looking for a senior application developer to join our growing engineering team, based in River House on High Street, Belfast.

Our development stack includes a wide range of technologies, including Java, React, Node, Python and all things AWS. While the role has visibility and influence across a number of core technologies within the platform, this person will focus on an auto scaling cloud infrastructure component, capturing security data and passing it to the dashboard for display and action by our customers. Knowledge of Kubernetes and container management is essential.

About You

    • You have strong communication skills. You ask questions, let others know when you need help, and tell others what you need.
    • You’re a problem solver. You believe the best work is the result of finding the simplest solution to complex challenges.
    • You take pride in the work you produce – your code is clean, your designs are elegant and you are constantly refactoring.
    • You’re keen to both teach and learn – every day is a school day in Contrast. There are new colleagues to help get started, and new technologies, frameworks, ways of approaching problems to be considered.
    • Advanced Knowledge of AWS Features and Services.

Our Ideal Candidate

    • A passion for technology and a high level of personal accountability and ownership for your work.
    • A “self-starter” attitude in order to make progress in ambiguous situations on schedule.
    • Willingness to work within the engineering team – with design, product, and support colleagues to build and support new features.
    • Own your work. Whether a nasty bug or an awesome feature, you put your name on every line of code.
    • A solid analytical ability to deal with ambiguity and to solve problems independently.
    • You’re a great communicator – whether you’re talking to fellow engineers about the inner workings of instrumenting the JVM, or a customer about the latest product features.
    • Someone who gives back to the Open Source Community whenever possible.
    • Ready to deploy: our engineers work in a fully devops environment – we deploy multiple times a day to our AWS infrastructure.

What We Offer

    • Competitive compensation package (salary + equity)
    • A fun and dynamic environment where you work with other like minded people on products which make a real difference to the security of our customers
    • Free in-office lunches every day
    • Healthcare packages
