Intermediate and Senior Java Developers – SpotLight (Mississauga/Toronto, Canada)

You are here

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 several experienced Java developers to continue enhancing SpotLight system capabilities and strengthen SpotLight’s ability to integrate both at customer environments and within the CaseBank product ecosystem.

You will join a small but highly capable team where you will have ample opportunity to apply your skills at end-to-end design and implementation on SaaS web and mobile technologies. The work will include a mix of new development, enhancement of existing features, and replacement of older technology. The SpotLight team comprises technology generalists, and you will be required to become conversant in MSSQL, CouchDB/PouchDB, Hibernate, Spring, JMS, RESTful APIs, SAML, S1000D XML, Case-based reasoning, Apache Cordova, Google Web Toolkit, and React.JS.

A commitment to collaborative problem solving, sophisticated design, and quality product is 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.
