Software Engineer  Java8/Springboot/Microservices/Kafka

We rely on engineering audacity (be ready to back it up). We love and hire dynamic, curious, hustlers so be ready to dive in and contribute in ways you might not have had the opportunity to before. Our Java Platform team tech stack is based on Java8 (Spring Boot) and RESTful web services. We typically build and deploy applications as cloud-native Kubernetes microservices and integrate with scalable technologies such as Kafka in Docker container environments. Our developers work in an agile process to efficiently deliver high-value data-driven applications and product packages.

*Location:  Due to the potential personal and business impacts of Covid-19, Egen is currently managing our engineering and business operations via remote work at this time. These positions will not be remote long-term and will return to our office/build center setting in Naperville once advised by the guidance of local health authorities and the CDC. We encourage anyone that will require relocation to begin making plans for that as soon as possible.
