Role description
We are looking for a great developer who is technically passionate, solution-focused and able to contribute to design, development, test automation, and hardening (security, stability, deployment) our inhouse-developed platform (Vantage). Multiple applications and teams heavily rely on the platform to deliver business value. Your team will be responsible of one of the key services that is heavily used: User Access Management (UAM).
Vantage platform consist of multiple reusable components which are deployed on our own WebSphere server. You will be able to develop and extend with new features/changes the current UAM solution while following regulatory and security requirements.
A transformation effort already started where part of the functionality/applications of Vantage platform will be migrated into a modern architecture based on REST API using the latest technologies. For the UAM solution, we will be starting a similar initiative: separating the application both physically and logically from the Vantage platform and positioning it as a separate application, maintained by an autonomous team and based on modern technologies and architectural principles.
