The pandemic is having a ripple effect across all industries, including tech. As a result, many professionals are out in the market looking for a new opportunity. Luckily, some entities like the European Commission are still hiring and looking especially for Java Developers. Are you one of the lucky ones?
The European Commission – a solid workplace for IT professionals
Did you know that there are more than 2.000 IT consultants supporting, improving, and building the new IT systems that connect all the member states and aim to build a better Europe? And that the European Commission has elected Java, Spring, Angular as their main tools of development?
Therefore, there is a huge need for Java Backend Developer, Fullstack Developer, Java Architects, and others that could join the projects and be part of the local team development at the European Commission. With the new 2030 program starting now, there is a huge workload to build the new systems. For example, every week, there is a request for more than 20 java developers to join the projects.
Currently, due to Covid and since March 2020, all staff is working 100% remote and it will remain like that till the end of the pandemic. After, they should work in Brussels for at least some days per week/per month. See more on how the European Commission is reacting to the pandemic challenges.
