As a Java/Cloud Application Developer, you’ve always had an eye toward the future. This job gives you the power to transform it. In a rare opportunity most developers never encounter in their careers, you’ll become part of a far-reaching initiative that will transform the workplace of your coworkers and the experience of our customers, making work more seamless and lives easier. You’ll be part of a team that will migrate Mutual of Omaha’s entire workload from a heritage, on-premise J2EE environment to the public cloud.

While it goes without saying you’ll have access to technologies like Kubernetes, Docker, Prometheus, Grafana, Kafka, ELK, Lambda, Spring Boot and Groovy, this opportunity is much bigger than any platform.
