When you join Verizon

Verizon is a leading provider of technology, communications, information and entertainment products, transforming the way we connect across the globe. We’re a diverse network of people driven by our ambition and united in our shared purpose to shape a better future. Here, we have the ability to learn and grow at the speed of technology, and the space to create within every role. Together, we are moving the world forward – and you can too. Dream it. Build it. Do it here.

What you’ll be doing...

In this role, you’ll develop APIs in our 100% cloud platform, using Java and Spring.

About the team you’d be joining: We build features in small, cross-functional Scrum teams with a high level of autonomy and collaboration. We support the users of our APIs, discuss their requirements, and evolve the architecture. We are part of an exciting new industry: how cool are drones! We are in an innovative space, and we are continuously learning new things as part of our jobs, and sharing those with our peers. We value automation for testing and deployment and believe that we can automatically test all the things. We focus a lot on maintainability. Most of our APIs use JSON and REST, others use messaging. We have a microservices architecture, we build Docker containers, and deploy those to AWS. We have the ease of decision making like a startup while having the security of an established enterprise. We are a people-first team and make work-life balance a top priority. Expressing our core values, we challenge the status quo, tenaciously pursue big ideas, act with personal accountability and honesty, and interact with trust and respect.
