In this role, you’ll be responsible for developing microservices in a distributed deployment environment with an emphasis on containerisation with Docker and K8S.

We wrote our system from scratch about 3 years ago, so you’ll be working with the latest technology and won’t have to worry about decades old legacy code.
A willingness to work in SpringBoot is fine – as long as you are willing to learn and have demonstrable experience in an object-oriented programming language
