Senior Java Engineer (life science) | Vodori, USA

Киев, удаленно $6000–7000

On behalf of Vodori, GT is looking for a Senior Java Engineer to join a US company that provides software solutions to the life science industries. Senior Java Engineer will become a part of the first Vodori office in Europe and work with a team of engineers in Ukraine.

The responsibilities of the Ukrainian team will involve the migration of the platform to the new technology stack and the development of the new features. Currently, Vodori is in the process of steadily switching to a new up-to-date tech stack (Java, AWS, Angular).

About Vodori

Vodori (Chicago, US) is an innovative disruptor providing software solutions to the life sciences industry with a primary focus on commercial sales and marketing processes. They have an existing portfolio of products — Pepper Flow, Pepper Insight, Pepper Folio, and an underlying Platform product — with a strong existing client base like some of the members of Fortune 500 Pharmaceuticals Companies.

The solutions ensure that effective compliant selling processes are followed by sales and marketing teams when dealing with healthcare practitioners and ensure that relevant content is available in a flexible, secure, validated, and cost-effective manner by teams globally. An existing competitor is well established in this sector in the life sciences industry (Veeva), but Vodori is well-positioned to disrupt their position of market dominance through offering cost-effective and flexible solutions to the small and medium players in the industry and over time competing for the major Big pharma companies business as well.

Your Mission:

  • Work across the stack, particularly the backend data, service layers, and AWS infrastructure to deliver new capabilities from start-to-finish
  • Employ best practices and standard design patterns to simplify and accelerate the development
  • Lead technical architecture discussions, help drive technical decisions within the team and then contribute to the implementation
  • Collaborate with QA, Product Management, & Support Engineering
  • Conduct design and code reviews. Maintain high programming standards by writing unit and functional tests
  • Provide technical leadership and mentorship to junior engineers
  • Work with a modern stack: AWS services, Docker, Kubernetes, Java, Angular, GraphQL, Mongo/Postgres, etc.

Must-have skills:

  • 7+ years of backend software development experience building time-sensitive, highly reliable, mission-critical software (SaaS, cloud-native preferred)
  • Hands-on experience with back-end software design and development with deep expertise in data, APIs, scalability, security, integrating cloud-based services (e.g. AWS EKS, IAM, S3), and 3rd party IdPs.
  • 5+ years experience working with Postgresql or equivalent relational database systems and modern cloud components from the major platforms
  • Expert-level development skills in Java, Spring Framework, and SQL
  • Front end Javascript framework experience, such as Angular, RxJS, etc. is a plus but not required
  • Passion for simplicity and collaboration
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to work across functions
  • Curiosity and passion to constantly learn and teach new things
  • BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science or related majors, or equivalent experience.

How will you work?

GT is a company that builds remote engineering teams for outstanding product companies. Our future mate will work directly with a client. We call this ‘Extended Team model’, and it means that each team member is integrated as deeply as possible into the client’s team. You will work with the same tools and technologies as they do and communicate directly with a client without any intermediary in between. Our clients usually (before the pandemic) came for a week each month and spend a lot of time with the team in Kyiv. We also encourage trips to a client and joint teambuilding and after-work activities.
