Java Developer Jobs

Java Development is an object-oriented programming language primarily used in the development of client-server Web applications. The original ‘write once, run anywhere’ slogan still applies today, as it works across many popular platforms.

Although a well-established code, Java continues to be updated on a regular basis. The code’s importance spreads through a range of different sectors and is integral to countless websites and applications.

Java Developer Job Details

The flexible nature of Java means it is used within almost any industry that relies on or produces Web applications. Due to the demand for Java development, there are a host of opportunities not only on an international scale in London and larger cities, but also in small, developing businesses.

Web developers are a valuable asset to companies and this is no different for those trained in Java. The longevity and stability of the code ensures plenty of job opportunities for Java developers, who can expect a salary of anything from £18k to in excess of £90k depending on experience and background.

The jobs typically associated with Java include the full spectrum of technical architects and Web developers, including those specialised in development for iOS and Android, as well as those with knowledge of Scala, Flex and UX design.
