Pivotal Software is hiring a

Java Software Engineer - Spring Engineering Team

Southampton, United Kingdom

* This position will be based in our Southampton, UK office.

The Cloud Foundry team at Pivotal is looking for an engineer to join as we define how Java runs in the cloud.


You have a strong background in Java application development and the experience to know how Java applications can excel when running in the cloud.  You're self-motivated and ready to represent your projects with customers, at conferences, and in public facing communications like GitHub, Slack, and mailing lists.  Over time you want to grow your skills and responsibilities until eventually you are the lead of one of the many open source projects you've worked so hard on.


At Pivotal Cloud Foundry, we are opinionated about how Java runs in the cloud.  We work individually or in very small teams allowing everyone to have a strong influence on the overall direction of projects.  We ask many questions, both to customers and each other, to ensure that we're building the right things before we deliver.


Cloud Foundry Java engineering is located on the beautiful campus of University of Southampton Science Park offices. Easily accessible from the M3, junction 14, the M27, and Southampton Parkway Station. To make sure you stay energized, we provide unlimited snacks/drinks that are available all day. Our collaborative, open-plan office space is filled with talented, like-minded engineers who enjoy taking advantage of outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, and hanging out with their co-workers.

Desired Skills/Experience:

  • 3-5 years of Java and Spring application development (GitHub evidence a plus)
  • Comfort in learning and working in other languages
  • BA/BS in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent experience

At Pivotal, our mission is to enable customers to build a new class of applications, leveraging big and fast data, and doing all of this with the power of cloud-independence.  

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law
