Senior Java Developer

Job description

"If you are a creative Java software developer and you dream of a company where you can spend more time writing new code and less time fighting bureaucratic procedures, then we want to hear from you!"

Clean, secure programming is key to keeping our company healthy. Therefore, we are looking for genuine developers, clean code enthusiasts, craftsmen that share our drive. We design architectures that are inherently secure, we are keen on writing quality software and we are not afraid of exploring new technologies or learning new programming languages.

You will contribute to our own SaaS and cloud applications with which we reach millions of end users. Our code is mission critical for many of our high-profile customers.

Our common vision

We are moving towards a new society where every person has a reliable, reusable digital identity. This digital identity can be used to securely exchange information, engage in remote transactions and protect confidential data and devices.

This digital identity will be integrated into your phone, car, IoT devices and will - among other things - enable your fridge to order directly and securely from your grocery store. The emergence of global online trust between persons and organisations is a paradigm shift that will change the role of existing institutions such as banks and governments.

The potential impact of this shift is immense, but vulnerable. We believe that a social enterprise like Connectis should lead the way and ensure a future Internet with many new opportunities while maintaining citizen privacy and avoiding single points of failure. We want you to join us in transforming this vision into reality.

  • Write software that matters! Be part of the team that will enable cross-border online authentication for European citizens.
