Want to benefit from a family-friendly culture, where your efforts will be truly recognised, whilst being part of a successful and well-established company with a global reach and endless growth plans?

The Company

Established for over 30 years, ProAct International is a software solutions company with a global reach. Although our passion, drive, and family-friendly feel has always remained the same, we have never stood still. We’re experiencing rapid business growth with exciting development plans on the horizon, and we want you to join us on our journey.

We recently expanded our reach by opening offices in Hamburg, Germany, adding to our already established office in Atlanta, USA, helping us to support some of the biggest global names in the industry including prestigious car manufacturers. Our team of more than 50 colleagues mean a lot to us, and they’re at the heart of everything we do. In fact, some of us have been here for more than 20 years, and by joining our team it’s guaranteed that your efforts will be recognised and rewarded.

The Role – Senior Java Developer

Working closely with the Head of Development, as Senior Java Developer you’ll receive training and support (if required) to develop your microservices knowledge. Your duties will include:

  • Taking the technical lead on a major internal project to redesign the core legacy Java application using a microservices architecture based on Spring Frameworks to define and implement the solution
  • Assisting, advising, and providing mentoring support to the existing Development Team relating to the new architecture
  • Liaising with customers and colleagues to provide communication and care
  • Monitoring and reviewing targets, making appropriate recommendations, and ensuring that these are carried out
  • Complying with the relevant requirements of ISO 9001 2015 and ISO 27001 2013 standards

The Package

  • A salary in the region of £55,000 to £65,000 and potentially negotiable, level depending on experience
  • Option to work from home (with limited travel to the offices in North Wales, perhaps once a month), or combine this with working from the offices, whichever you prefer
  • Company travel expenses paid
  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays
  • Permanent contract with full time hours, working Monday to Friday 9am to 5:30pm
  • Endless career development opportunities, with full training and support

We recently opened new offices in St. Asaph (North Wales), in line with our growth plans. However, some of our team prefer to work fully remotely and we employ individuals throughout the UK.
