Job Description

Java Software Engineer

Position Description
Be part of something interesting and meaningful and join CGI as a Java Software Developer. Do you want to take control of your future? Are you ready for the responsibility of working with high-profile clients in a fast paced, dynamic, national delivery programme? The successful candidate will be joining our UK Smart Metering Team. At CGI we are experts in UK Smart Metering with many years’ experience of running Smart Meters for large Energy Suppliers. The DCC Adapter product team provide key cryptographic products and services to allow Energy Suppliers to connect to the new SMETS2 UK Smart Metering DCC User Gateway. Approximately 80 per cent of all SMETS2 Smart Meter messages will be handled via CGI’s DCC Adapter, making the product a key component of the Smart Meter rollout in 2020.

Your future duties and responsibilities
As a Developer you will need to understand, design, and develop software from functional and non-functional specifications. You will be following agreed development processes and produce software and unit tests in line with project and applicable domain standards.

Required qualifications to be successful in this role
As an experienced Java Developer you must have proven Core Java Development experience, and must be particularly strong with J2EE. Experience of Maven and TDD would also be advantageous.

The ideal candidate will be pro-active and be able to identify and resolve issues, and will have a good appreciation of design constraints/principles that lead to maintainable code. Dependency injection techniques are also required.

Ideally you will be comfortable converting technical specification documents to a plan for development, and will have a familiarity with Design Patterns and Clean Coding techniques.

Experience of JDBC, SQL, WebServices (HTTP, JSON, XML) and continuous integration is also important.

Industry knowledge of the UK Smart Metering Implementation Programme is highly desirable, but is not essential.
