Java back-end developer

Wherever you look: software is running everywhere. Sometimes visible, but usually somewhere in the background on a server. And there, in the background, Java is king. In all industries from High Tech, Fintech to medical and logistics processes; Java is used everywhere. This has created a broad base of opportunity where you, as a Java developer, can enjoy yourself and develop yourself within this field. The Java world never stands still, which means you can constantly develop and challenge yourself, both technically and in your skills related to frameworks, cloud platforms and other tooling.

Constantly developing yourself and staying challenged by your favorite technology, what more could you want?
