Life in our Digital Teams

Over the past 2 years Aviva has been on one of the most visionary digital transformation journeys of any company within Financial Services and we continue to move towards being a “Digital First” organization. We have built bespoke digital spaces for our teams in our London Digital Garage, Norwich, Bristol, and Sheffield.

 

Insurance is ripe for disruption and that is what we have been doing. In fact, we are a 320 year old disruptor that is transforming the way customers engage with our products and services.

 

We approach software delivery with an Agile mind-set; passionate about delivering small, value-driven improvements, regularly and often. Our collaborative scrum teams are made up of an exceptional mix of digital experts and innovators from a wide range of industries. We craft brand new experiences, small changes to existing products as well as investing in maintaining our existing products.

 

The role:

We are looking for a Software Engineers/Java Developers to join the Integration and API team within our Digital organisation, working within one of our scrum teams to build and maintain the RESTful APIs that will underpin both ours and our partners’ digital applications

 

You will be responsible for:

  • The creation of high-quality RESTful APIs within a specific business domain
  • Owning the delivery of the API product from engagement with key partners through to the estimation of delivery, build and test
  • Supporting & sharing standard methodology with teams

 

We’re particularly interested in talking to people with:

  • Technical expertise in Java Development and associated frameworks (JUnit, Cucumber, Jenkins, Spring, Maven)

  • Hands on experience of designing, building and supporting RESTful APIs
  • Experience of modern software engineering practices include Continuous Delivery
  • Strong experience of server side Java development and associated concerns (e.g. thread management, database access, ORM, security)
  • Experience of working in large teams with a shared codebase, and designing & building for maintainability

 

If you have experience within Financial Services, or regulated environments, then that’s great. But did you know, we also encourage people to join us from outside of the industry too? The diversity in our teams is, in our opinion, is what makes Aviva an interesting and innovative place to be.

  • Competitive salary depending on skills, experience and qualifications
  • Generous defined contribution pension scheme
  • Annual performance related bonus and pay review
  • Minimum holiday allowance of 25 days plus bank holidays and the option to buy/sell up to 5 additional days
