Sporty's sites are some of the most popular on the internet, consistently staying in Alexa's list of top websites for the countries they operate in.

 

In this role, you’ll be responsible for developing microservices in a distributed deployment environment with an emphasis on containerisation with Docker and K8S. You won’t just be writing simple CRUD applications, but instead will be working on the core logic of complex systems that are accessed millions of times a day. We wrote our system from scratch about 3 years ago, so you’ll be working with the latest technology and won’t have to worry about decades old legacy code.

 

A willingness to work in Springboot is fine - as long as you are willing to learn and have demonstrable experience in an object-oriented programming language.
