    Job Description

    Are you an experienced Senior Software Developer or Tech Lead with a strong background in the development of backend RESTful APIs? We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a professional approach to Software Development to lead the delivery of APIs within the Integration team. You would join a growing and high-performing team of like-minded individuals in the Delivery & Engineering group within Enterprise IT.

    Our API-led integration approach is part of a strategic vision to make Arm programmable. To enable faster and simpler integration of our systems and data, we are building a portfolio of re-usable microservices on our strategic API platform. The Integration team plays a high-profile and pivotal role, crafting scalable REST and event-based APIs that underpin customer-facing applications and critical business processes. You will play a meaningful role in enabling Arm to put our world-changing technology in the hands of our partners. Arm's solutions are used in a range of customer products from Mobile and Server, through IoT to Automotive industries.

    We need an Engineering Lead with microservice & API development experience. You will lead the development, testing, deployment and maintenance of the APIs the team builds as well as manage API developers. You will work with the API Platform Owner and Scrum Master to plan and coordinate development with other IT product teams, ensuring your team's APIs meet the functional and non-functional requirements, conform to our integration architecture, and are documented in the API catalogue. You will also set coding standards for your function beyond the team, working with the Head of Engineering and engineering leadership community to raise the bar across IT. With a passion for continuous improvement, you will drive the team to raise quality, learn new technologies, optimise ways of working and create better, more usable and more resilient applications.

    Our API management platform is Mulesoft Anypoint, and much integration work is developed in Mule. Integration sits at the intersection of many of our platforms, and you will therefore play an integral role in delivering end-to-end solutions at enterprise scale. According to the use-case, you will incorporate a wide variety of technologies (e.g. message queues, document databases, PaaS APIs on other platforms) and securely expose them through APIs via Mulesoft Anypoint. We automate as much of the development, testing and deployment processes as possible using tools such as Jenkins, Gitlab, SonarQube, Blazemeter, Cucumber as well as custom code. Your insight will be invaluable in spotting opportunities to further enhance these to improve pace, agility and testability.

    Your exceptional partner management experience, interpersonal skills and ability to co-ordinate development of complex distributed applications will make your application stand out with this role.

    Job Requirements

    • Experience delivering solutions in an agile way
    • Knowledge of API/integration principles and patterns
    • Experience implementing integration solutions using APIs and web services technologies, preferably including REST
