Lead Java Engineer - Central London
My client are one of the top 5 software consultancies in the world and are looking for a lead engineer to work on a government project requiring SC level clearence (you must be eligable/already have SC clearence).
In your role as Lead Java/Software Engineer your initial role will be to work on a Proof Of Concept hosted in the Azure Cloud. You'll work alongside a Solutions Architect, Data Architect and another Senior Developer to establish a preferred approach for storing POLE data currently residing in a variety of legacy management systems (structured data) for one of our key Government clients. The team are running a series of architectural and technology selection sprints to be followed by a series of design sprints - 80% focussed on POLE store (you'll need graph database knowledge and API development experience for this) and 20% focussed on search (experience of Elasticsearch would be great here). This initial project is expected to last around 3-4 months with a high probability of follow on work to develop a full production system so this is a great opportunity to follow this project through.
Joining my client, you'll also open up a world of possibilities, you'll be empowered to take control of your career through training both in house and external, coupled with the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in both the public and commercial sectors.
