Scrum Master/ Developer - Social Impact

Software & Analysis
Professional, Freelancer

Cegeka is looking for Scrum Master/ developer to strengthen one of our agile teams within the Acerta EverESSt project. In this project we are building the future payroll engine. The main task of a payroll engine, also known as a payroll engine, is the payroll calculation. In short, from determining the right to gross wages to the net. From this flow tax files for the actual annual return, payment files for the cash flows, etc. Acerta is a Belgian HR service provider with wage calculation as one of their main activities for companies of all sizes. The department responsible for this calculation is called an "Approved Social Secretariat (ESS)". Most ESS work with payroll engines based on mainframe technologies that are often 20 to 30 years old. The need is growing for a new payroll engine that uses modern technology, which is both cost-effective and can support new business processes and models. How do we make this a success with Cegeka? By doing what we do best: building quality software using our Agile mentality and best development practices. We use techniques such as DDD, TDD and BDD. The technology stack is Java-based docker containers running on Openshift. The challenges are both in terms of functional requirements and operational requirements (NFRs), specifically: performance, scalability and maintainability. What does the job entail?
