Position 2417
Software Engineer (Java)

We are searching for a junior to mid-level software engineer to work on a suite of sophisticated Java Web applications.

You will join a high-performance team of developers who are constantly learning and pushing their understanding of the technology, techniques, and best practices of software development. You will build and tune high performance systems that support thousands of concurrent users and millions of transactions per week. This is a great career advancement opportunity!

Livonia, MI or downtown Ann Arbor (developer's choice).

Developers who prefer to work in the Ann Arbor office will need to complete an initial 6-8 week training process in the Livonia office. Developers who subsequently work in the Ann Arbor office will also need to travel to Livonia occasionally (a 30 minute drive) for meetings.

Working offsite a day or two a week is a possibility for candidates with a sizable commute.
