job description

One of our clients, a big financial institution in Zurich, is currently looking for a Java Core Developer for their office in Bellinzona. You will be responsible for development in their Credit Risk Reporting field, developing and implementing changes that go through multiple tiers from the Java application through to the back-end databases.

Key Responsibilities

  • Under the guidance of a Development Manager, work directly with allocated Project Managers, Business Analysts and external IT and business teams to perform technical analysis of the existing system, implement change requests and build new features
  • Provide support for the existing systems where required
  • Take responsibility for changes that go through multiple tiers from the Java application through to the back-end databases
  • Write server-side code to implement business logic
  • Write and amend stored procedures in the Sybase/SQL Server databases
  • Participate in all aspects of the project lifecycle
  • In a major production incident situation this role may require out of office hours work, although we don't anticipate this to be often


  • A core Java developer with 3-5 years’ experience (Java 7 preferably 8)
  • High level experience with low latency platform (developing low latency, high availability multithreaded code)
  • Detailed in-depth knowledge of Garbage Collection
  • Minimum of 3 years of Database experience (Sybase/Oracle preferred)
  • Experience with common Java frameworks e.g. Spring
  • Experience with UNIX (Linux / AIX / Solaris)

If you feel that you fit the bill then I look forward to receiving your application.  

This role would be very fitting for a Java Developer that lives or works in Italian Speaking Switzerland. Alternatively it would be a good role for anyone looking to make their first move to Switzerland.

Due to Swiss employment law I am sorry to say we will only be able to accept applications from those with Swiss Citizenship, existing permission to work openly in Switzerland, or those which hold EU nationality.
