Software start-up Ellexus is looking for a Java Developer to help create, shape and test our existing and upcoming products. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a growing company currently developing new technology.

Ellexus is the I/O profiling company. We make tools for high performance computing and cloud optimisation. We work with customers around the world in the semiconductor industry, in life sciences, cancer research and many other sectors.
