At Athlon International we are looking for a Lead Back End Developer for the MyAthlon team.

Project MyAthlon

MyAthlon is the international customer portal of Athlon for interaction with customers from different organizations such as drivers, fleetmanagers and internal employees. The portal is currently active in 4 countries and is the primary contact for drivers to search for lease cars, configuration of their car, quote to order process, claim damage, expenses, update driver data and mileage, service history of cars and finances. It interacts with several local country backoffice systems in order to provide fleetmanagers with intelligence data of their fleet in reporting and dashboards. Employees use the portal to open accounts for drivers and fleetmanagers. There are several development teams working on the portal.

Business cases from the local countries indicate opportunities to improve efficiency and process optimization, which will be implemented by the MyAthlon-team in addition to a further rollout of the portal to other countries and expanding functionalities.

The team exists of2 Back End Developers, 2 Front End Developers, a Test Consultant, Business Analyst and Product Owner who manages the team.

The team is working with:

  • Java development
  • Data architecture and solution design
  • Java Spring and Spring Boot
  • CI/CD systems (Jenkins, Git)
  • RESTful web services design and implementation
  • Implementation of microservices;
  • API definition languages (OpenAPI, Swagger, Jaml)
  • Jira & Confluence tools

Role of Lead Back End Developer

The Lead Developer is the driving force behind the application architecture and will have a strong focus on code quality and guiding the team members in adopting and adhering to standards and best practices. It is not a management role, but the emphasis is on taking the lead and showing the right example, guiding others and confront when deviating from the standards.

An important aspect is to build more application knowledge and to keep the application architecture manageable. Besides that the Lead Developer should be able to bring together front end and back end developers where there is currently too much division.

General software design skills are more important than knowledge of any specific framework or tooling. We are looking for an experienced developer (Java back end) with a proven track record of designing applications, not the ‘look and feel’ but from a technical perspective. We are not looking for an Architect, but a Developer with experience in building application design.
