iLoveRewards – Java Ninja

Toronto, ON

I Love Rewards, one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers and fastest growing companies, is seeking Senior Java Developers.

We want great Java Ninja’s to join our rapidly-expanding development team. You want to work on hard problems and be recognized and rewarded when you go above and beyond (which is often!). You want to work for a small company big on attitude and character, and you’re motivated by making an impact. Most importantly, you want to be in a place that’s full of people like you- A players who are fiercely intelligent, share a passion for their work, and know how to have fun!

As a Senior Java Developer, you will:

  • Write code from scratch that builds major features and squashes convoluted bugs for the I Love Rewards Express web platform
  • Optimize and refactor our services using Amazon’s EC2,S3, and EBS cloud based architectures
  • Work with passionate and talented individuals in a startup atmosphere, producing customer facing functionality in short iterations in an Agile environment
  • Worry about non-functional requirements that most users take for granted (security, usability, flexibility, in-code documentation, etc.)
  • Mentor other developers
  • Work in an environment where your manager understands you (he/she was a developer too), cares about your continual improvement, and also gives you interesting work

As a Senior Java Developer, you:

  • Are a Java master with 7-10 years experience in OOP, web based architectures and still love to code
  • Have implemented and maintained scalable, redundant and fault tolerant systems for the web with loads over 100k concurrent users
  • Love Agile development and delivery, write test cases first and are an evangelist for software quality
  • Have occasional dreams of the Java Virtual Machine, OOP and AOP
  • Are a master in all things Spring, Hibernate, JSP, Servlets, XML, & Javascript
  • Are a practitioner with Eclipse, MySQL, Tomcat, Apache, Linux and Amazon AWS
  • Are a firm believer that free, open source software can rival the performance of expensive application and database servers when you do it right
  • Know that enterprise design patterns have nothing to do with fabric
  • Went to school for computer science/engineering or wrote kick-ass software anyway
  • Are a pointaholic (you get really excited by getting cool stuff for free with your points)

We proudly hold many acclaims (Canada’s Top 100 Employers, GTA’s Top 50 Employers two years in a row), we offer an outstanding corporate culture, competitive benefits, a generous vacation policy, an Employee Stock Options Plan, a location in trendy Liberty Village, and lots more.
