Cycle3 IT Staffing is seeking a Java Lead Application Engineer for a long term contract role.


Must be “very” strong in Java (REST, API, Kafka – are nice to have’s)

Leadership skills would be nice

Will accept non-local candidates willing to relocate


Prefer Right-to-Hire, although it is not a requirement.

At least 3 years of experience (but should have lots of understanding of the role since it is a Lead role)


Would almost prefer to see 5 years of experience since it is a Lead role.


Onsite in STL

Interview Process: initial 30 minute interview on phone. At least one more interview 90 minutes preferred in person, but will do via Skype, if necessary



(not required up front to be considered, but will have to take it for the position) I can review the resume to determine whether we want them to complete this. If we are really impressed with someone, I do not want to delay and risk losing them. But most will be asked to complete this via an interview after I have reviewed.



The number one criteria is Java engineering experience.

We want Java engineers that really passionate about Java and take the time to understand why they do things a certain way.


After a deep understanding of Java, we are looking for RESTful Web Services, SpringBoot, Kafka, and automation skills (such as Jenkins and Cucumber).
