Senior Java Developer

Production Engineering build the software which help our crew make movies. We specialise in designing and developing enterprise grade distributed systems that run on our large cluster compute setup with minimal downtime.

Our ideal candidate is an experienced Java developer who’ll join our cross-functional team here in Wellington. Your key responsibilities will be supporting and improving the functions and efficiency of existing applications, as well as proficient at designing and developing high-volume, low-latency applications which deliver high-availability and performance.

You’ll be someone who can think in an innovative and creative way, is at home with open source technologies and comfortable discussing the technology and maybe arguing an algorithm or two…

You will be proficient designing and developing applications using Java 8 and Spring; and have a good knowledge and understanding of PostgreSQL databases and Java and JVM internals. You will need experience managing and troubleshooting servers and networks, experience developing solid APIs and love test driven development and CI/CD practices.
