ARE YOU READY to step up and take your technology expertise to the next level?
There is never a typical day at Accenture, but that’s why we love it here! This is an extraordinary chance to create a rewarding career at Accenture Technology. Working in a digitally-driven, innovation-led environment where you can help clients shift to the New using leading-edge technologies on some of the coolest projects you can imagine.
Most software developers, engineers, and architects get to build software systems. Very few get to say with a straight face: “I’m reinventing banking.” Or hospitality, or logistics, or insurance. We’re combining technology, industry expertise, and entrepreneurial experience to massively disrupt our clients’ core businesses, in order to propel them into the future and create better products and experiences for everyone.
As Microservice Lead, you will be a key driver of the delivery of a modern software platform based on an event-driven microservices architecture. You will lead scrum teams, up-skill team members, design and build common component libraries and services, proofs-of-concept, and application software, and troubleshoot challenging problems.
Required skills and experience:
  • Extensive experience developing enterprise applications for the JVM, including Maven or Gradle, and Spring
  • Experience with Spring Cloud / Netflix OSS and Spring Boot
  • Excellent unit testing skills
  • Proficiency in standard source version management with Git
  • Proficiency in DevOps practices
Desirable skills and experience:
  • Domain-driven design experience
  • Building and deploying microservices for deployment as Docker containers
  • Proficiency in performance analysis, testing, and optimization
  • Experience with service deployment, monitoring, and troubleshooting
Nice-to-have skills and experience:
  • JVM functional programming languages such as Kotlin, Scala, or Clojure
  • BDD with AssertJ
  • Spring Web Reactive
  • Kubernetes or OpenShift
  • Azure, AWS, or Google Cloud IaaS
  • Azure Kubernetes Service, Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes, or Google Kubernetes Engine
  • Istio, Linkerd, or Knative
  • Competitive benefits, including a fair and balanced parental leave policy.
  • Fantastic opportunities to develop your career across industries, local and global clients
  • Performance Achievement and Career Mentorship – our performance management process that focuses on your strengths, progress and career possibilities.
  • Opportunities to get involved in corporate citizenship initiatives, from volunteering to doing charity work.
