Senior Java Developer – Remote/Stellenbosch

Full Time

You will form part of the team that develops the Platform-as-a-Service product and who maintains a governance framework for technology and product development.

  • We are not scared of running cutting edge frameworks and tech stacks.
  • Lots of companies get stuck on an older version of Java and Java EE servers, but we embrace new tech/versions.
  • We are always considering new platforms and/or frameworks and are not specifically locked into the idea of using Java EE.
  • You get the full stack development experience from the frontend all the way to the backend/database.
  • You are not limited in your actions, this means if you have to set up a VM to accomplish a task (even if you have never set up one before) then you do it.
  • Total ownership of the product and your clients.
  • The platform is challenging as working on multi-tenant systems brings with it complex issues, but also creative solutions.
  • A senior team that expects self-managing individuals that can hit the ground running.


  • 10 years overall experience in information technology.
  • 10+ years’ experience in full stack development.
  • 5+ years’ experience in Java development.
  • 10+ years’ experience working with SQL databases, ideally PostgreSQL.

You will be using the following technology:

  • Java EE (Enterprise Edition) 8
  • Glassfish 4.1.1 & 5
  • Git & SVN (SVN being phased out)
  • PostgreSQL 9.6 (to be upgraded soon)
  • Ubuntu

Benefits & Perks:

  • Freedom to work remotely up to 3 days per week (each team decides their days and flexible hours)
