Information about the position

Job description, responsibilities and duties

Hey there! Are you passionate about developing robust and scalable backend systems? Do you have a deep understanding of Java and love exploring the world of AWS?

If so, I have an exciting opportunity for you!

  • Developer work
As a Java Backend Developer in our company, I spend my days designing, developing, and maintaining high-performance backend systems using Java and AWS services. I optimize our applications to make sure they run smoothly, but also get the opportunity to build and develop brand new solutions, using RESTful web services and microservices architecture. I can use a variety of AWS services, such as Lambda, API Gateway, DynamoDB, S3, and EC2, to build scalable and reliable solutions. I can also improve my Terraform knowledge, as we use Terraform to manage our infrastructure.

Some members of my team can also use their PHP knowledge to help with migration of some legacy parts of our platform to Java. 

I work closely with the frontend development team to create seamless integrations between the frontend and backend functionalities, as well as cross-functional teams such as database or AWS team to analyze business requirements and turn them into real-life solutions. Our teams work based on SCRUM and Kanban methodologies.

We are obliged to comply with HIPAA, keeping clients' protected health information (PHI) safe. Our goal is to follow ISO 27001, the leading international standard focused on information security.

  • Tech stack requirements
To excel in this role, you'll need solid experience in Java backend development. Proficiency in core Java, Java EE, and the Spring Framework is a must. And of course, a deep understanding of AWS services like Lambda, API Gateway, DynamoDB, S3, and EC2 will make you an asset to our team and would be beneficial, but not essential.

Employee perks, benefits

My company supports me in improving my qualifications and knowledge through various voluntary courses and conferences.

I’m working mostly remotely, with regular OFFICE DAYS ( 2 - 4x monthly ) in our Košice office, where I get to meet my colleagues, enjoy great coffee and drinks, chill in our relax room and, after office hours, I meet my co- workers and enjoy our teambuildings.

We are a leading American company, but we don’t have to work US working hours.

My colleagues can usually reach me within our regular core hours - between 9 AM and 3 PM. We are working in flexible working time mode and I’m able to manage my working time. And most importantly! My overtimes are automatically compensated on a monthly basis.

In addition, let’s mention our office, a very cozy and informal space in the Košice city center.

Brief description of the company

We are a tech company operating in the medical sector, mainly focused on the Vision industry. Our product has been active on the market for over 10 years and is used by over 1,500 practices across the United States.

Our platform provides patient insurance benefits details to doctors covering all major insurance providers in the US.

Why is this important? A large portion of vision practices in the United States is focused on Eyeglass sales in addition to optometric services. At the same time, it is common for employers to provide vision insurance as part of their employee benefits. This usually covers a purchase of one set of eyeglasses per year.

Since patients are usually not aware of all the details related to their vision benefits, it is more so important for doctors to have an easy-to-access and centralized place to get them for all major insurance providers.

Even though providing insurance information is our core functionality, there is much more our platform has to offer to optometry practices. We can integrate with their practice management systems to automate our workflows, provide prefilled patient forms, help setting up insurance plans, and best of all, carry out messaging campaigns focused on patients with unused insurance benefits.

ABB Optical Group in the United State is a leading provider of optical products, services and business solutions in the eye care industry. ABB operates through three business pillars: ABB Contact Lens, ABB Labs and ABB Business Solutions. ABB is focused on the future of eye care professionals, helping them succeed by making practices more efficient and assisting providers to effectively navigate market changes.
