Sr. Lead Java Developer


Sr. Lead Java Developer

Atlanta (Buckhead area)

Direct hire - Must be authorized to work in the US without sponsorship


Our client is growing year over year, both in revenue and in team size!  Tier4 Group has been retained to help them hire for a Senior Lead Java Developer.  We're looking for a leader (and not necessarily in official title) who wants to jump in and mentor teams in quality development.  Team members will consist of both mid-level and junior developers or recent grads.  This is a terrific opportunity for growth!


The Senior Lead Java Developer will be leading an innovation project, with many POCs and new product development projects already being scheduled.  Even though our client isn't a start-up, the technology-team operates that way, so we're looking for people who have a start-up mentality and are willing to grab the horns on any technology opportunity presented.  If this is you, we'd love to chat.  


This position includes a competitive salary, plus bonuses (paid twice a year) and one of the best benefits plans in Atlanta.  Free gym membership + free breakfast/ snacks too!
