Java Software Architect - Freelancer

As a Software Architect - Freelancer at Mercateo, you will be part of a remote and global team that is already living tomorrow's working world today. We are convinced that professionalism and good teamwork do not need co-location or borders.

What you’ll do:

  • Together with your Scrum team, you create cloud native applications, based on decoupled business components with micro services and are responsible for the highly available and scalable operability of them.

  • You influence architecture and design discussions across teams while taking operational aspects from the outset into account.

  • You exchange ideas and concepts about cloud-based applications with other teams.

  • You should be also prepared to develop mostly in a Java environment, but also be ready to use new languages and systems.

  • Last but not least: You coach our software engineers through pair programming etc. and continuously develop an active learning culture.

What you’ll definitely need:

  • You have already written excellent software and understand your work from design to excellent code in depth, which is permanently maintainable.

  • You have outstanding skills in domain modeling, API design and the use of adequate persistence mechanisms.

  • You are familiar with microservice architectures and can operate them scalably in the cloud.

  • You have practical experience with the development of distributed, highly scalable systems and the development of REST-APIs or event-based interfaces.

  • You understand complex technical contexts and can translate them into technically driven code.

What you can expect from us:

  • High degree of creative freedom in a committed, fast-paced technological environment.

  • Development of an exciting business model thanks to a modern technological landscape.

  • An agile software company with flat hierarchies and open communication.

  • A cool team where you can learn from each other and also contribute your own strengths.

  • A thoughtful onboarding programme including networking cross-functionally.

  • We encourage you to dedicate 10% of your working time to your professional development.


We are interested in long-term collaboration and that Mercateo is not just "one project" among others for you.
