We need Full-stack Developers for Web Applications (75% server-side Java and 25% front-end JavaScript) to work with our new team in Bangalore.

In this position, you will be responsible for working on two major web applications that are important to Vonage's business.

We use continuous integration and release software daily. We follow the Kanban agile methodology and track our work in JIRA.

That may include: sign-up workflow; payments and anti-fraud workflow; features to support our products (Messaging, Voice, Verify, Insight, Stitch) including powerful searches and debugging tools for our customers
  • Help champion a maintainable well designed Java server-side codebase and look for ways to further improve our applications’ internal design, thinking about build, deployment, object-oriented design, automated testing, error handling, logging, monitoring, et al
  • Creating responsive web pages with excellent usability, working in collaboration with the team’s UX/usability and front-end specialists
  • This role is predominantly Java server-side, and there is also a front-end aspect (Vue JS, Javascript, JQuery, CSS3, and HTML5). The split of time is approximately 75% server-side and 25% front-end
  • Document and demonstrate solutions by developing documentation, flowcharts, layouts, diagrams, charts, code comments and clear code
  • Support and develop software engineers by providing advice, coaching and educational opportunities. This includes mentoring junior and mid-level engineers
  • Grow engineering teams by interviewing, recruiting and hiring
  • Make informed decisions quickly and taking ownership of services and applications at scale
  • Work collaboratively with others to achieve goals
  • Be a persistent, creative problem ­solver
  • Stay on the leading edge of development practices
  • Passionate about great technologies, especially open source
  • Understand business needs and know how to create the tools to manage them

What we value:

Being disruptive. Getting things done. With smart people. Enjoying knowing that the work we do is having a global impact by enabling never before imagined communications.

We have big goals, and we want the people who join us to be self-confident, focused on customers and delivery, and who are structured and committed in their approach. We iterate quickly, we fail fast, we take smart chances. We value those who will help us continue this spirit

Values matter at Vonage. We are on a mission to bring value for consumers and enterprises through global cloud based communications.

But just as important as delivering value is how we deliver that value.

We believe in integrity. Both personally and professionally. We believe in empowering our employees and are actively seeking entrepreneurs in training who want to help build something larger.

We have gotten to this point by being committed, passionate, and focused on getting things done. We need more people like us. If this appeals to you then we encourage you to apply.
