Opportunity
OPPORTUNITY
If you dream of building a real cloud-native multi-tenant software solution, which scales to the sky, has impressive high availability – then we share a dream. In a world with rapid continuous deployments, we want to build that dream together with you. We are expanding our teams with dreamers and visionary people like yourself, which means you will have a deep impact on both which technology is used and what work culture is shaped.

THE STORY BEHIND THE ROLE
In Fadata we want to be the very best, which we have succeeded with, as we are recognized by Gartner in their “Magic Quadrant”, with our insurance platform INSIS. This success has been built over many years and many changes to the technology stack and architecture have kept INSIS in the “Magic Quadrant”. Over the past years, Fadata has been working on another step in the evolution of INSIS, where we are making INSIS a true cloud-native multi-tenant software solution. Even though the transformation of our platform has been going on for some time, many aspects are still open, so you will have a significant impact on how Fadata becomes a cloud-native multi-tenancy platform offering a SaaS solution for our customers. Built with Open-Source technologies, Java is the main language on the backend, and spring.io’s family of frameworks will be a centerpiece. Following the microservice pattern, everything will run in Containers on a Kubernetes cluster. The APIs are implemented in a contract-first approach, with OpenAPI as the specification of the contract and spring.io’s family of frameworks as the implementation platform.

THE TRANSFORMATION 
Just as we in Fadata have been working on our technology transformation, we are all in a transformation phase on how we are working as developers. This transition is going from having developers only working on one part of the stack, to developers working on the entire stack. In Fadata, we believe that true full stack developers, who are experts in all parts of the technology stack are unicorns. Whereas t-shirt shaped skill trees, with branches growing in all directions of the technology stack, from a good stable trunk of the skill tree in one of the technologies. 
 
THE SCOPE OF THIS ROLE
As a Senior Full Stack Developer, with the trunk of the skill tree in Spring Java, you will be helping colleges, from other parts of the technology stack grow new branches of their skill tree in Spring Java and they will help you grow new branch of you skill tree – I'll teach you and you’ll teach me. 
As a Senior Full Stack Developer , you are an experienced software engineer who demonstrates strong and proficient competency and knowledge of more than one technical field.
