Well-established SaaS Organisation in Aberdeen (can offer 100% Remote working) are looking for a skilled Full Stack Java Developer to join their core web-app team - can provide sponsorship.

They've been running now for over 20 years and work with an array of really high-profile clients across the globe - their products are very highly rated and used by thousands of users on a daily basis. Their products are largely used to help improve efficiency and safety within medium to large-scale businesses.

Over the past year or so they've been going through a period of scaling and modernising their product - something you'll be heavily involved with if you came onboard. They're ideally looking for someone that will be able to offer suggestions on how to improve current processes and tech - a proactive Developer that want's their voice to be heard.

Their current Development team sits at six strong, with both Web and Mobile Devs - they're a close-knit bunch and are looking for someone that enjoys working in a collaborative manner and is able to speak up. The product is written in Java8, they largely use Hibernate for their framework and it's hosted in AWS. The front-end is written in Angular, but they've already started to move it across to ReactJS. Additionally, they've implemented Automation Testing and are looking into DevOps tools - so they have plenty of work to keep everyone busy, not to mention the new feature requests they are constantly working through.

You'll ideally have experience with most of the following;

** Java8+

** Working with Java Frameworks (Spring, Hibernate or Strut)

** Databases (ideally SQL)

** Working in the front-end; HTML, CSS and JavaScript (bonus points for ReactJS / TypeScript)

The following experience is highly desirable;

** DevOps tools (Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform)

** Working in a Product Environment

** Automated Testing

They're based in central Aberdeen but the work can be done 100% remotely from anywhere in the UK. They do hope people can ideally pop in twice a year for their big wash-ups but can be flex on this too.

Our clients


He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester
