  • HTML/CSS and enough JS to make you dangerous :)

Some key things we look for are:

  • Test-driven development (TDD), or at least strong unit testing skills.
  • Strong working knowledge of OOP.
  • Strong working knowledge of databases, data modeling, JPA and SQL.

You should:

  • Be conversant with OOP principles and design methods, such as encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, and abstraction.
  • Write clean code that is easy for others to understand.
  • Be familiar with common data structures in the Collection API and know when it is appropriate to use each one.
  • Have a working knowledge of concurrent programming (locks, synchronized methods, thread-safe code).
  • Be comfortable using try-with-resources and have a good understanding of streams and buffering.
  • Be competent writing SQL statements, using modern join techniques. Working knowledge of commit/rollback is highly regarded.
  • Understand the basic principles of data modeling, including normalization. Ideally you can read/write ER diagrams.
  • Know how to use Spring Boot starters and common application configuration properties, and ideally be able to use test slices (eg. WebMvcTest, DataJpaTest), and know how to override/exclude auto-configuration.
  • Consistently write unit tests that follow FIRST principles, and ideally be a TDD practitioner. You should at least be able to write tests that start a Spring application context, and wire Spring-managed beans into tests. Extra points for knowing how to write a test with Transactional. Extra points for knowing how to use Mockito and MockBean.
  • Know how to use RowMapper, ResultSetExtractor, and RowCallbackHandler with JdbcTemplate. Extra points for working knowledge of Transactional.
  • Work with Maven or Gradle, including setting up project dependencies, and build from CLI.
  • Handle DB schema migrations using Liquibase.
  • Be comfortable working with basic containerised delivery, using Docker (both local and remote).
  • Be extremely comfortable working with a Linux shell (Bash, Zsh).
  • Very highly regarded (though not essential, as we train our people in these skills):
    • AWS
    • Kubernetes
    • Spring Cloud
    • Spring WebMVC
    • Spring WebFlux
    • Architectural Design Patterns (GoF, Enterprise Architecture)
