Job Description

The Senior Software Engineer role will be a key one for the SG Digital New Product Development (NPD) team. 

The role will be critical to ensure the highest coding standards and quality of deliverables to the QA and Operational Excellence teams and for adoption by operators. A Senior Software Engineer will be expected to both lead and mentor less experienced developers, actively contributing to their day-to-day activities and training needs.

These are just some of the tasks you may work on:

  • Development of new features and functionality for Product Engineering products and services.
  • Ensuring that all products and services have agreed levels of test coverage, in line with NPD requirements, and adhere to agreed architectural and technology (including security) standards.
  • Active participation in solutions architecture and design, including KPI definition.
  • Acting as the design authority and provide high-level estimates of software deliverables for planning purposes.
  • Supporting the Development Manager and Head of QA to ensure continuous quality improvement in the development teams.
  • Proactively identify and address areas of material improvement, notably around performance, security and scalability.


If you are the right Senior Java Software Engineer for us you will be able to demonstrate:

  • A minimum of 5 years’ hands-on experience in designing and developing applications using Java Enterprise platforms, using UNIX / Linux.
  • A minimum of 3 years’ hands-on experience in designing distributed systems, for example, using (preferably) DDD or SOA and potentially also a central ‘broker’ (such as Kafka or potentially an ESB).
  • Excellent knowledge of Relational Databases, SQL, and ORM technologies (JPA2, Hibernate, etc.).
  • Experience in developing web applications, preferably on Springboot MVC or using at least one other popular web framework (JSF, Drupal, GWT, etc.).
  • Demonstrable experience with TDD and/or BDD.
  • Some experience in the use of Akka, Kafka, Scala and Cassandra.
  • Extensive experience is the use of Docker, Ansible, Maven, Jenkins, Sonar and Git (BitBucket).
  • Demonstrable experience in developing large distributed systems and concepts such as caching, sharding, consistent hashing, interprocess communications, and brokering.

It would also be great to see these skills/experiences as well:

  • Secondary expertise in Python (maybe PHP) and PostgreSQL or MySQL would be beneficial.
  • General scripting skills: Bash, Perl, Python, Javascript, etc.

Domain knowledge is not required, but having worked on major eCommerce or any significant widely distributed system is.
