Drools & jBPM are Hiring - Web Developer needed for Low-Code/No-Code framework

This position is now filed. Thank you.
------
The Drools & jBPM projects are looking to hire a web developer to help build and improve our low-code/no-code web framework and workbench. This framework is trying to make it possible to model business applications, end to end, fully within a web based environment - utilising data models, forms, workflow, rules, and case management.

The initial focus of the work will be around improving how the workbench uses and exposes Git and Maven. You'll be expected to figure out a Git workflow, suitable for our target users and build a UI to simplify how they work with that. This will also include some pull request like system, to control code reviews and code contributions. The main aim will be to simplify and hide as much complexity as possible. You will be working extensibly with our User Experience group to achieve these goals.

Over time you will tackle other aspects of our low-code/no-code framework and it will be expected that a percentage of your time will help with general sustaining across the product - i.e. bug fixing and maintenance.

We are looking for someone passionate about software development, who can demonstrate they love what they do - such as contributing to open source projects in their own time.

The work will make extensive use of Java, GWTErrai and UberFire.  You do not need GWT, Errai or UberFire experience, but you should have a strong understanding of general web technologies and a willingness to learn. A working knowledge of Git and Maven will be necessary, and you will be asked to give ideas on how to achieve a workflow that is more suitable for less technical people. No prior experience of rules or workflow is necessary, but helps.

The role is remote and can be in any location for which Red Hat has an office. Salaries are based on country ranges and you should check salary suitability with the recruiter. You may apply through this generic job requisition page. https://careers-redhat.icims.com/jobs/52676/senior-software-engineer/job

Great news! Once again the amazing and flamboyant leaders of the Java User Group from Barcelona manage to put together their anual conference JBCNConf. And, of course, Drools & jBPM will be there. Take a look at their website for more information about the talks and speakers, and if you are close enough to Barcelona I hope to see you all there.

This year I will be doing a Drools Workshop there (Thursday, first day of the conference), hoping to introduce people to Drools in a very hands on session. So if you are looking to start using Drools straight away, this is a great opportunity to do so. If you are a more advanced user and wants to bring your examples or issues to the workshop you are more than welcome. I will be sharing the projects that I will be using on the workshop a couple of weeks before the event so  can take a look and bring more questions to the session. It is also probable that I will be bringing with me freshly printed copies of the new Mastering Drools book, so you might be able to get some copies for free :)
Maciej Swiderski will be covering the jBPM and Knowledge Driven Microservices this year. I totally recommend this talk to anyone interested in how to improve your micro services by adopting tools to formalise and automate domain specific knowledge.
Finally, this year Maciej and I will be given the closing talk of the conference titled : The Open Source Way were we will be sharing with the audience the main benefits of getting involved with the open source community & projects but most importantly we will be sharing how to do achieve that. If you are already an Open Source project contributor and you plan to attend to the conference, get in touch!
Stay tuned for more news, and get in touch if you want to hang around with us before and after the conference!
