Position: Senior Developer - Java
Location: Covent Garden, London
Salary: £40-55k per annum Dependent on experience.
Take Thomas Cook's E-commerce experience to the next level.
The Thomas Cook Group is the best-known name in leisure travel, with sales of £9.5 billion, 31,000 employees and 23 million customers.
They are currently transforming their business. Thomas Cook's new Group Chief Executive Officer, Harriet Green, is leading a robust strategy that will deliver sustainable growth and put Thomas Cook on a sound footing for the future.
E-commerce will play a pivotal role in that future. Indeed, it's now the fastest growing part of Thomas Cook's business - and as a member of the technology team, you'll ensure their online experience is the best that it can be. You'll help them refresh their online offering across Thomas Cooks entire European network: a remit that presently spans more than 30 websites and includes their whole family of brands.
As a Senior Developer, you'll build a wide range of solutions. Whether it's an interface for a new product or a new function within a site, you'll ensure it's robustly coded and naturally intuitive for the end user. It's a challenge that will see you deploying technologies like Java, J2EE, EJB, JSP, Oracle, SQL, HTML, and XML in a service-orientated architecture environment. You'll apply your deep understanding of object-oriented design to create compelling UIs for a portfolio of sites.
To succeed, you'll need to have an expert knowledge of Java based web development and a good track record of developing for mobile devices. As well as a very strong command of the technologies mentioned above, you'll have experience of test-driven development, pair programming and domain driven design. Extensive experience of the Scrum framework and agile principles is also essential. If you can bring additional experience in technologies like Flash, Sencha Touch and JIRA, this would be an asset. Technical skills aside, you'll also have the communication skills and can-do approach needed to deliver projects to deadline in a very fast paced environment.
