GTM No Script

Senior Java Engineer

The Company

At Star, we connect strategy, insights, design, and engineering into a seamless workflow devised to support our clients every step of the way—no matter how long or complex their journey. We anchor everything we do in clear and compelling endgames, which in turn enable our multidisciplinary teams to create superior solutions and impressive commercial returns for our clients.

Star is truly global. That is why we are the first major consulting company that does not have headquarters. Instead, we have many front doors, spanning Silicon Valley, Tokyo, London, Munich, Copenhagen, Kyiv, Wroclaw, Ho Chi Minh City, and other vibrant design, technology, and creative nuclei of the world. Our spirited and growing 750+ strong Star Crew takes great pride in working side by side with their trailblazing counterparts at some of the world’s most disruptive “unicorn” startups and iconic global brands like Lufthansa, Dolby Laboratories, BMW, Panasonic, Walmart, and Zeiss.

Our mission is to make every great person, every great idea, and every great company shine. That’s why we’re called Star.

The Opportunity

Our goal is to reduce costs of tire repairs, the number of tire blowouts and road accidents related to tire issues.  We also aim to reduce CO2 emissions by helping customers properly service and maintain their tires.  We are looking for someone to help us achieve these goals through a complex system, uniting hardware and software integrations, AI algorithms and data management. 

We have freedom of technical decisions, an accommodating and supportive Client team, fast release cycles and minimum bureaucracy. 

You will be in charge of architectural decisions, scalability planning, new features roll out, all while working closely with the Star and Client team – although we consider ourselves one super team.
