Job Description for Java Programmer

Java programmers perform a number of tasks in the Java language. They perform coding and design tasks, as well as testing and implementation. These programmers must have substantial knowledge of Java, including the Java threading model, developing Java multithreaded applications, and relational database modeling and/or design. They must also perform peer code reviews, as well as effectively communicate with the project lead on any developmental efforts/concerns. Other necessary skills include understanding object-oriented design concepts and application layering. In addition to correcting any errors or deficiencies in code, they must also learn and use new technologies as they are released (if they are necessary).

A Java programmer should be able to learn quickly, multitask, and adapt quickly to changing circumstances in a fast-paced setting. They must also follow standard programming and company practices, as well as prioritize workload to consistently meet deadlines. A Java programmer should be able to work independently, but also collaborate with colleagues in a team environment; additionally, they must work with a project architect or technical lead to confirm technical designs.

Work experience in the financial industry may be helpful, but it is not always required. A mobile technology and development background may be beneficial, as may an understanding architectural concepts such as SOA, SSO, and Enterprise Service Bus.
