AEM Developer

Team: The Thompsons /
/ Hybrid
Here at Inlight, we’re a digital product agency leveraging strategy, design and technology to solve complex and interesting business challenges. We're passionate about working alongside our clients and create well considered digital products & experiences that deliver maximum impact for our clients and their users.

We're looking for an experienced AEM (Adobe Experience Manager) Developer to join the team at Inlight. Someone who can confidently contribute to AEM projects and help evolve the adoption of AEM Cloud as an offering for our clients.

We're strong believers that our people, not technology, produce the best outcomes. You'll join forces with 50+ friendly Inlighters who work flexibly between home and our brand new Clifton Hill office, which is purpose built with hybrid work being central to its design.

A typical day will involve

    • Working collaboratively with a project team from concept through to delivery, and independently driving your own work forward,
    • Creating reliable and maintainable solutions and writing clean and testable object-oriented code in Java,
    • Providing technical expertise to help guide our team and building trust and credibility with our clients,
    • Reviewing PRs and assisting other devs with complex technical questions and bug fixes,
    • Working closely with our Producers and Engineering Managers on technical planning and decisions, 
    • Share experience and understanding of AEM with other developers in the team to help them improve and grow their skills and capabilities in AEM

You are someone who

    • Has significant development experience in Adobe AEM
    • Has a detailed understanding of Adobe core components, Maven, OSGi, Sling, JCR, and associated integrations. 
    • Has experience working with the wider Experience Cloud services such as Adobe Target, Analytics, and Audience Manager
    • Has experience around installations, CI/CD, version control, branching and code management in AEM
    • Has sound working knowledge of modern front-end technologies and tooling integrations with both AEM and REST APIs. 
    • Applies reasoned logic when solving problems
    • Is pragmatic and looks for ways to make things easier. 
    • Follows curiosity to challenge how things are done and can work through problems. 
    • Is highly collaborative and can develop empathy when considering different perspectives 
    • Can confidently lead technical discussions with clients. 
    • Has a bias toward action and applying proven principles and experience to deliver. 
    • Invests in your learning and actively promotes sharing knowledge and experimenting with new tools.

    • At Inlight, we work with various technologies across a wide range of clients and projects. In addition to Adobe Experience Manager (AEM), we utilise a Javascript/Typescript across both front-end (React and NextJS) as well as backend (NodeJS/serverless) to serve REST and GraphQL APIs. We utilise a range of AWS products and infrastructure, including Elastic Beanstalk, Cloudfront RDS, DynamoDB, and Lambda. We also work with Terraform, CDK, and Serverless.

      Whilst the primary focus of this role will be helping build and evolve AEM based solutions, you will have the opportunity to be exposed to a number of platforms and technologies.

Why Inlight?

    • The ability to have a broad and significant impact in a growing and proudly independent business,
    • Plenty of flexibility to work where works for you, and a bright, open warehouse space in Clifton Hill that you can access and work from when you want - and when makes sense for our team and our clients,
