Job: Java Developer

Contract Terms
Contract will initially be for 6 months with a possibility for further extension dependent on performance.
Job Description
It’s a fast-paced job with minimal supervision but high pressure for delivery. So you need to be self-driven, organized and a stickler for details.
Majority of the work will be java-based with SOAP and JSON integrations.
Application process is simple. The first step is simply to assess your ability. Don’t worry about your CV and your other qualifications. Although you MUST have a National ID (the new Uganda….)
Send an email to off-list a cover letter plus either:
(a) a Google Drive Folder link to sample source code you’ve written in Java
(b) (even better) a link to a github (or other SCM) repository showing source code you’ve written.
I’m not bothered by whether the code works or not, but the quality of the code (which is subjective I know) but let’s say I’ll look at some of the following:
  • how readable the code is,
  • use of data structures
  • how you use classes
  • how you use functions
  • code comments
But in the long run, the following cartoon will show the biggest metric I’ll use is the WTFs/min metric:
Gross pay of up to 4.5 million UGX per month plus limited medical insurance.
