Lead Full-Stack Developer

Lisbon, Lisboa, Portugal

We are currently looking for a Lead Full-Stack Developer to join our brand new location - Lisboa!

As a Lead Full-Stack Developer, you will take ownership of our product UI redesign and build a new way of visualizing our customer data flows. You and your team will decide how much effort you want to invest in technical improvements (cleaner code, automation, more unit tests, better CI pipeline) and in technical debt mitigation. The majority of work comprises developing new features. Maintenance (bug-fixing) comprises the smaller part. For that reason, you should be familiar with Java on the backend and React on the frontend.

We have eight teams working on 8 million lines of code split into 1000 modules and delivering over 1000 new features per year. Feels like a challenge? Good.

Whether you are intrigued by solving complex algorithmic problems or a fan of faster development cycles and want to see your code in action, you’ll find a place at MANTA. Although MANTA is a creature of the ocean, making cloud its habitat is one of our goals for this year.

Our stack is in Java 8 and 11, Spring, Tomcat, Neo4j, Antlr, H2 DB, Mybatis, ActiveMQ Artemis, React, Swagger, Javascript, C#, Maven, Git, AWS, Docker, Kubernetes and Openshift.

  • You will be responsible for mentoring and developing team members, and for promoting a culture of continuous learning;
  • You will understand how data flow metadata can be presented to different end-users to make their work easier;
  • You will build an application that provides additional insights into customers' data pipelines;
  • You will participate in the design and implementation of internal development processes such as testing, releasing and deployment of the platform.

What you should have:

  • Experience leading a team of developers;
  • Solid experience with developing Java applications using Spring;
  • You have a firm grasp of React, and knowing Saga, Redux, JEST and Enzyme is definitely a plus;
  • You have a Bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering or in a related field;
  • You have a passion for writing clean, modular, and testable code.

What you’ll get:

  • Health & Life insurance;
  • Stock options;

  • Superior training and professional development;
  • Regular team building activities;
  • Strong ties to leadership to progress your career sooner rather than later;
