Senior Software Engineer - Java



Here's a bit more about the Software Engineer position:

The Software Engineer is responsible for designing and analyzing applications, developing project plans, coding, testing and documenting all code utilizing Java and web-based programming tools. The Developer will also be responsible for maintaining and upgrading existing applications and will communicate with customers to understand their requirements and assist in the implementation of work requests.

Java: Candidate will be responsible for creating software that is both customer-facing and internal, primarily in the Java programming language. Candidate must demonstrate proficiency with common aspects of the Java language such as generics, collections, auto-boxing, as well as awareness of common software patterns.

Object-Oriented Design: The candidate must demonstrate a solid grasp of object-oriented design principles, such as polymorphism, encapsulation, the Liskov substitution principle, composition, and inheritance as they are expressed in the Java language.

Common Enterprise Software: We use several industry standard Java libraries, tools and frameworks that the ideal candidate will have experience with: Spring, Hibernate, jsp, Struts, Tomcat, Maven and Jetty.

Relational Database Systems: Interface with a relational database is done via both SQL and through the Hibernate object-relational mapper, but the latter is not a substitute for the former, so understanding of common SQL constructs including joins, sub-selects and grouping, preferably with experience in Oracle syntax and tools, is required. If you can expound on the merits or demerits of object-relational impedance mismatches bonus points will be awarded.
