Position Summary

CaseBank’s SpotLight and ChronicX SaaS applications provide guided diagnostics and recurring maintenance defect identification and tracking for many of the world’s largest and best-known airlines. Our customer base continues to grow at accelerating year-over-year rates, largely through industry word-of-mouth.

We seek an experienced Java developer to conduct a tech debt refresh on a fielded application. This role provides a full-stack development opportunity requiring an understanding of both legacy technologies (MSSQL, Hibernate, GWT) and modern replacements (React.JS/Redux plus an in-house Big Data stack leveraging Apache Cassandra and Spring Boot).

You will join a small but highly capable team, with a culture of openness, information sharing, and commitment to technical excellence. Collaborative problem solving, sophisticated design, and quality code are critical to this role. To succeed, you must possess a demonstrated track record of accomplishment in a growing, fast-paced environment, a “Three Musketeers” (all for one, and one for all) approach to teamwork, and an instinctive ability to recognize, create, and perpetuate clean and elegant software implementations.

  1. Execute a technology refresh on an existing application, migrating from GWT/Hibernate/MSSQL into React/Spring Boot/Cassandra stack.
  2. Design and implement Messaging APIs strengthening integration between the application and other elements of the CaseBank product ecosystem.
  3. Contribute to overall system design, development and growth discussions of CaseBank’s product offerings in accordance with the product road map.

Secondary Objectives:

  1. Collaborate with UX design and Product Management to elaborate requirements and prepare development estimates for new feature candidates.
  2. Participate in design reviews, code reviews, and in mentoring junior staff.
  3. Assist the team leader by coordinating activities with QA and DevOps teams to ensure on time, high quality version upgrades in the production environment.

Required Skill Set

  1. Software engineering degree plus 5 years software development experience or equivalent using a Java web application stack.
  2. Design, implementation and use of RESTful APIs
  3. Experience with Microsoft SQL Server / Hibernate / Spring Boot / Cassandra technology stack.
  4. Minimum one year experience developing user interfaces and components in React.JS.
  5. A strong desire to establish, enhance, and preserve a clean codebase throughout the development lifecycle.
