Job Title: Junior Java Engineer


At ZapLabs, we work to build and improve a platform that helps real estate professionals stay connected with home buyers and sellers nationwide. We do that by combining great technology with great people – and we’re looking for a Junior Java Engineer to join our team.


What we’re looking for:

You’re a recent graduate with the right skills, possibly some internship experience, and maybe even a little on-the-job experience – and you’re ready to take your skills to the next level. You’re itching to delve deeper into Java, Spring, Hibernate, and other new back-end technologies. You know how to work independently, but you also thrive in a collaborative, team-oriented environment. You’ll bring your passion for writing efficient, maintainable, and reusable code – plus your unwavering commitment to quality, efficiently-architected services. And of course, you’re eager to learn everything you can!


What you’ll do:

At ZapLabs, you’ll play a key role in delivering quality products that make life easier for our agents, brokers, home buyers, and sellers. You’ll turn requirements into clean, scalable, and efficient back-end services. You’ll work with ZapLabs’ java engineering, front-end engineering, product management, and QA teams on a daily basis to design, test, and deliver first-rate, functional software. Most of all, you’ll be expected (and encouraged!) to learn quickly, makes some mistakes, develop some solutions, and make big contributions.


Skills, accomplishments, interests you should have:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related field
  • Some knowledge of developing Spring- and Hibernate-based web applications
  • Ability to work quickly with an eye towards writing clean, efficient, reusable code
  • Ability to build prototypes for new features that will delight our users and are consistent with business goals
  • Iterate quickly in an agile development process
  • Refactor early and often to continuously improve code quality
  • Excellent analytical/troubleshooting skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit


Nice to haves:

  • Experience working within a software development team
  • Working knowledge of Unix, preferably Linux
  • Extensive LOTR or Star Wars knowledge
