Java Developer

Job description

Just imagine, YOU, java developer making the world a better place!  


"HOW?"

We believe that caring for vulnerable people is an essential aspect of our society. It is a measure of our civilization that we as human beings feel the importance of this care. Those who provide this care deserve the best possible support when performing their work. To those, we bring advanced technology. 


Join our mission to provide the best possible software for these professionals, so that they can access complete and relevant information, so they can optimize their work processes and executing their profession better. 


Join our mission to provide the best possible software that improves the quality of care they provide and provides them with more time to spend with their clients.


Join our mission and become a part of something bigger! 


You, part of us, 32 people and part of our development team, 12 engineers in strong collaboration with our 3 testers. You will have the best of both worlds: a specialized development team to stimulate your further technical growth, combined with daily practical input from colleagues who are working across the country to improve healthcare. BONUS: work on new product development!


As you might imagine, working on healthcare software requires a lot of integrations with external platforms of which you will take care of.  It requires functionality, reliability, and security. It requires well designed, testable, efficient code. Within Java EE, you will work mostly with the Spring framework. Our platform uses event-driven architecture, which we implement with the Axon framework. Developing in Axon is quite challenging, as it forces you to think in an additional dimension: time. Implementing new routines will not only alter the most recent state of a record but all historical states as well while preserving the history and integrity of all previous events altering that record. To read more about Axon, please visit www.axoniq.io But don't worry, you can learn it ALL...we'll provide direction for what you need to do! Because at Gerimedica, the growth is inevitable! 




Before you make your mind up, what do you know about us, our business and the way we do things differently?


GeriMedica was founded in 2007 as a spin-off from the VU medical center and backed by three large care centers. We believe that good care for vulnerable people and the chronically ill is essential to our society. Our Electronic Medical Record (EMR), called Ysis, is tailor-made for medical professionals in the long-term-care. 80+ Healthcare organizations in the Netherlands currently use Ysis, and it integrates with more than 35 external applications.

Requirements

Now that we told you about Gerimedica, can you introduce yourself? Hopefully, this starts with...


As a backend developer, I enjoy working with Java/JEE and Spring Boot and/or GWT. I’m more than aware of the common best practices of microservices, API, AWS. And I cannot wait to learn the next new technology in my stack.


I'm familiar with SCRUM. I work hard and make it happen. I am creative, excited and eager to challenge conventional ideas. I think lean, pragmatic and outside corporate processes. In addition, thanks to the good communication skills I can clearly bring across ideas and information. Besides all of that: I’m a nice person to hang out with.


The Good news ...is that if you have read this far, I bet you are a bit like us:


  • You are excited about our vision: to create a sustainable impact on healthcare.
  • You are a tech-savvy backend developer who loves to get everything done with the best equipment of your own choice.
  • You strive for continuous personal and professional development every day
  • You like to work in an informal, non-hierarchical organization- being a fun colleague, that takes his/her work seriously too. 
  • you have a ‘pro-active’ attitude, and enjoy flexibility in when and where you work. 
  • last but not least, you enjoy free & healthy daily lunch, you like to celebrate when things go well, or have occasional drinks and snacks with us - your colleagues, your friends.

What else is in it for you? Next to what you read above, what do you think about the pension plan, a commuting allowance, or the education budget?  


You’ve just imagined it all and now you’re asking yourself: What Happens Next?

Don’t worry, I understand if you don’t know what to do right now, you like what you read but you still have more questions before deciding to move forward. This is why I am here: I am Eva, here to help you go through this process and overcome any hurdles that pop up along the way… 


 If we can tell you more about this opportunity, then will you give us a chance?
