76/hr Java API Dev (REST, Swagger, etc.). 12+ Months. Contract. Atlanta, GA. (L-3939) (A)


Are you a java senior developer w/ a focus on the services layer (based on REST)?  Have background w/ Swagger?  Then this contract might be of interest to you.

In short, our agent's client asked them to locate this skill for their end client.  The role would be working on various web services, based on REST, that underlay systems such as Ancillary, Shopping, and Booking for an Airline client.  Development is following the Agile/Scrum methodology.  Bonus points if you have worked w/ API Documentation frameworks like Swagger.  

So, if this sounds like you, APPLY TODAY!!!

Please note: If the resource is removed during the first 10 business days of the assignment, the end client (and, in turn, Amplified) will not be charged for the services of that resource.
