Day-to-day you will also lead by example by being involved in the coding of functionality, system testing, facilitating user acceptance testing, Production deployment, and Production support.

You will be working primarily with Java for back-end services and APIs. There is also an opportunity to work on Angular for front-end web applications if you are keen.
