Senior Software Developer (Java)

Alexandria, Virginia, United States | US - DC | Full-time

mgm technology partners is looking for a master developer to help us build world-class applications as a part of its growing team in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C.

About you

You love technology—it wouldn’t be uncommon to find you reading Wired, posting in r/programming, or contributing to Coderanch or Stack Exchange—and you love that your career has revolved around developing new products with a high standard of excellence. You enjoy spending time with other developers and you believe that outstanding team communication, technical expertise, and customer focus are the three essential ingredients to any strong development process. You don't just want to code; you want to implement. You are looking for your next big career move, one with challenging projects, space for experimentation and personal responsibility, and an opportunity for leadership without the responsibilities of formal management.

Your impact as a senior software developer

mgm technology partners is new to D.C.—and America! Our Germany-based software development company just opened its office in Alexandria, Virginia, and we’re growing a local team to better serve our U.S.-based clients. 

The senior software developer will join mgm’s international team of developers, and will largely work with colleagues in France, Germany, and locally. They will help develop mission-critical products, and in the process will define software requirements, write beautiful code, and own end-to-end features on large, multi-year projects. The senior software developer will implement creative solutions to complex problems, which may include introducing new systems to our technology stacks, reworking data models, re-thinking persistence layers, or simply taking an active role in code reviews. 

As an essential part of mgm technology partners’ product team, the senior software developer will evangelize product excellence for enterprise-grade application development. They will be expected to mentor and learn from our team of world-class developers.
