Java Software Engineer

Eduserv has a vacancy for a Java Software Engineer in its Identity and Access Management Team to development and maintain the OpenAthens products. OpenAthens is a cloud based single sign on solution used by over 4 million users worldwide. The successful candidate will work as part of an agile team to deliver the next generation of the OpenAthens products.

The successful candidate will have excellent team working and communication skills, and experience of developing enterprise scale applications. In addition to Java skills, candidates will ideally have some experience of the following technologies.


  • UI Frameworks, preferably GWT
  • REST Frameworks, preferably Restlet
  • JPA / Hibernate
  • MS SQL Server
  • ElasticSearch
  • Apache Cassandra (or similar ‘No SQL’ databases)

While in depth experience in some of the above technologies will be required, it is not expected that candidates will be experts in all of them. A passion for technology and advancing personal skills is more important.

Any experience with identity and access management technologies, such as SAML, OAUTH, would be an advantage. Knowledge of agile development practices, preferably SCRUM, is also useful as it’s used positively within the team.
