Job description, responsibilities and duties

We are very successful in providing high-tech solutions and these days we are working on new project oriented in cloud technologies. Java wasn't part of our "technology pack" in Bratislava - until now! But because of our dedication for the best solution, we decided to build whole new team of Java Developers and extend our Kistler team :).

Cloud technologies open up new potential for Kistler applications. The cloud may not only provide access to measurements from anywhere – it may also enable completely new service-based products and business models.

Our new Java Developer will feel at home in cloud-related technologies (e.g. Docker containerization, microservices architecture , …) and will bring in new services and creative solutions for our existing and new fields of application.

Your main tasks will cover:

* Design and implement Kistler cloud services for a wide variety of measuring applications
* Elaborate frameworks and reusable components for Kistler cloud services
* Take responsibility for cloud-based software development, ranging from requirements engineering to architecture, design and implementation
* Evaluate cloud technologies
* Show how cloud connectivity may provide added value to existing and new Kistler measurement applications
* Support product and application developers using Kistler cloud services

Our products are for example:
* Solutions that weight the vehicles on the road
* Solutions that are used for the optimizing of sportsmen performance
* Measurement systems for quality control during production
* Other high-tech solutions based on sensors and data received from them
