As part of our team in Munich, you and your teammates are responsible for the XING TicketingManager (https://en.xing-events.com/ our-services/ticketing/), the best way to sell tickets online for business events in the DACH region. Within this Scrum team, you will play an active part in shaping our product.
A challenging task
You will implement new features for the XING TicketingManager with a good test coverage. We do not work alone, but we collaborate with other development teams at XING, connecting our apps using REST APIs and AMQP queues. We are all full-stack developers, and as part of the team you will build complete features from end to end. The TicketingManager is built on a Java stack using Apache Wicket, Spring, Hibernate, MySQL, Solr, Memcache, and RabbitMQ. We are running and maintaining the system on Amazon AWS, also using Docker. At XING, we use Github Enterprise to manage our code base. We heavily use open source projects, and contribute back regularly (see also https://github.com/xing). The team’s working language is English.
A convincing background
At least 2 years of professional experience building software.
Good understanding of algorithms, data structures and general software development patterns, especially OOP.
Basic understanding of test automation with unit testing, and mocking frameworks.
Prior experience with the Java programming language, and the Java technology stack.
Having worked with technologies we use such as Spring, Wicket, and Hibernate is nice, but it is not mandatory. What is mandatory is a willingness to learn new stuff when necessary.
Good understanding of database technologies.
Unix and/or Amazon EC2 experience is a plus, as you will need to learn this otherwise.
You share our attitude towards software development as a craft, constantly expanding your personal toolbox, and are willing to take responsibility.
Willing and able to share knowledge, and coach other developers.
Fluent communication in English.
Having worked in a Scrum team before is a plus.
An inspiring environment
XING Events offers a dynamic environment located in the center of Munich with an excellent rooftop terrace. As well as flexible working hours that support your work-life balance, you’ll have an opportunity to unleash your skills and acquire new ones. We do regular team and offsite events, and we send you to conferences, such as the Full-stack Fest in Barcelona. Furthermore, you have the option to work on whatever you like once per quarter during our XING-wide Hack Week. Of course, we also provide free drinks and fruit as well as restaurant vouchers. And let’s not forget the smartphone or iPad that you can use privately. You’ll also be provided with a high-end MacBook Pro.
