West Corporation is looking for an experienced Java Engineer to join a high-performing team as we migrate our platform to a cloud-native architecture.

If you consider yourself a Java engineer rather than a developer, and if you are excited by the idea of being a partof an experienced team building a messaging engine that serves millions of customers a day and is geo-redundant, always on, processing tens of thousands of transactions a second, then we want to talk to you.

Our team is constructing a cloud-native, orchestrated micro-service platform running on Java 8. We have fully automated Jenkins and Ansible-based CICD with automated testing. We are fully agile running on Jira and Confluence. Most of the team is collocated in Omaha, Nebraska, but we have team members in West offices all over the country and team members working from their homes. We are using Pivotal Cloud Foundry, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Rabbit, Spring Boot, and Hazelcast as our technology base. Our platform sends and receives millions of phone calls, SMS messages, and Push notifications every day. If this stack fits your experiences, then we really want to talk to you.

The ideal candidate will have experience with our technologies and/or similar ones, will be self-motivated, and driven to achieve. He or she will have experience overseeing the design, implementation, and maintenance of server application deployment projects. A deep technical understanding of building Java applications in a distributed environment is essential. The right person will thrive in a distributed-team environment and be communicative and collaborative with teammates across the country.

West develops technology-enabled communications that change the way we work and improve the way we live. We are pioneering new ways to interact, to engage, to execute business processes and transactions. We are a collective effort of enterprise and individuals, of communities and customers, of partnerships and families. We are the sum of our entire network – the result of brilliant ideas, dedication and the hard work of people who share our vision. We are at the core of a technology and communications engine that is changing the world.

We connect. We deliver. We are West.
