Purpose of Position

As a Junior Software Engineer you will be part of a cross-functional service-oriented team, working on extending and maintaining our Affiliate Marketing platform.

You will learn to write clean, secure, and well-tested code, actively seeking feedback and adhering to best practices. Collaboration is key as you work alongside your team to extend, maintain, and operate our platform.

Engage in knowledge-sharing activities and contribute to translating user needs into technical solutions. From requirements gathering to deployment and support, you'll be involved in every stage of the product lifecycle. Embrace challenges and proactively address risks to ensure our service continues to evolve and meet customer demands.

The Team

You will be joining our Payments tribe, which plays a crucial role in the central value stream of our business. Our team creates an optimal experience with self-service payment activities for our Advertiser clients, and to increase our speed and flexibility on all our payment traffic. We design how our customers pay and partners get paid. Come be part of our journey as we embrace a cloud-first strategy on AWS, where you'll delve into an exciting array of technologies including Java/Spring, Kafka, SQL/NoSQL databases, Angular, Jenkins, Docker, and more.

  • Follow best-practice guidelines and processes
  • Troubleshoot and resolve issues
  • Communicate effectively in both verbal (day-to-day discussions, team meetings) and written forms (documentation, emails, communication tools) with local and remote team members

Whilst the above is a guide to general expectation of the role, we expect this position to evolve allowing you greater scope to gain both knowledge and experience within the online and affiliate marketplace.
