Anne Ginther & Associates is a recruiting firm, currently engaged to find the best candidates for a Sr. J2EE Web Application Developer position with a software company in MN. This is a 24 X 7 customer facing environment.

Responsibilities include design and development of Enterprise Applications. Qualified candidates must have a deep understanding Object Oriented methodologies and design patterns. Performs full life-cycle development process - from analysis, design, development, implementation, modification, documentation and refinement for Java/J2EE-based applications. Interacts regularly with QA, Application Support as well as internal development peers. Must be a strong team player with a commitment to excellence. Must have ability to handle multiple concurrent activities and have a flexible positive attitude. Strong written and verbal communication skills.

Technical qualifications include:

5+ years of web application development experience in Java, including strong working experience in:

J2EE technologies, strong server-side design and development; experience with J2EE application servers (Jboss preferred)
Designing and supporting an Enterprise class, high-availability system (99+% uptime)
Web-framework (WebWork most relevant, or Struts)
Web services (JAX-RPC, Apache AXIS, SOAP)
JMS message creation and handling
Unit Testing (jUnit experience preferred)
JSP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript
UML, Industry standard Design Patterns
Database design and development experience with MS SQL Server and T-SQL, writing complex stored procedures/SQL queries
ANT, Maven
IDE (IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse, or NetBeans)

Bachelors degree in computer science or a related field preferred.

Additional notes from the hiring manager:

We generally look for well rounded candidates. They should know Java, but also SQL, HTML, JavaScript, etc. Candidates often lack strong database skill sets. Our developers all write their own database code, and that code is often much more complex than Java developers are used to, so candidates should be able to write complex stored procedures.

Also, candidates need to have direct experience building web applications, preferably complex, large-scale enterprise systems.

Strong verbal and written communication skills are important � because we work in two offices, we work over the phone a lot, so candidates should be able to communicate effectively. Candidates should be able to work under various conditions, such as not having strong specification to build from.

We are also looking for candidates that have worked with web-application frameworks, such as Struts. We use WebWork and XWork, so direct experience with WebWork is better than Struts, but they are very similar. Candidates should have experience with major application servers and web servers, like JBoss (preferred), WebLogic, Tomcat, etc., major relational databases, like MS SQL Server (preferred) or Oracle. Experience with IDEs like IntelliJ IDEA (preferred), Eclipse, or NetBeans.

We have a great balance of people to work with, each bringing their own expertise to the team. It is a dynamic environment, where one gets to work on interesting projects. The environment is relaxed, easy going, and fun. The product is something that helps to make patient lives better.

Please note-- My client will consider architect candidates for an opening in the near future.

Interested Candidates: Please email your resume along with a letter that highlights your experience with the requirements listed above to
