In order to tackle the non-trivial data ingestion, visualization and analytics components we need to build a suite of new custom applications leveraging some of the most innovative ideas, algorithms and leading edge components.

We need quick learning multi-skilled software engineers to integrate the technology, write robust multi-tiered applications and build creative UI/UX. It's all green-field work, using the most exciting areas of technology, working with smart & creative people in a booming industry. Right now we need really strong Java engineers to work on a number of innovative AWS cloud native projects involving the ingestion and harmonization of large volumes of semi-structured data.

We run small DevOps teams and follow Agile Scrum or Agile Kanban depending on the needs of the project and the best approach for the team.

This is a rare opportunity to work with AWS, Spring Framework, Docker, leading edge JavaScript development and NoSql (Document stores, network graph, columnar etc). In addition your work will have a direct influence on Client's research into MS, ALS, Hemophilia and Alzheimer's.
