How do we do it?
Our Java development team consists of more than 100 Java software architects, senior developers and developers. 70% have a Masters Degree or equivalent in computer science. Many have advanced degrees including Ph D’s in related areas such as math and physics. And our low turnover rate ensures these top-notch individuals are with our software development team year after year.

Plus, they’re backed up by a hundred QA engineers well-versed in manual and automated testing. All our people collaborate and become personally invested in the projects they work on – people with a “throw it over the wall” mentality simply don’t work at Kanda.

Kanda’s Java Developers:
  • Go through intensive technical interviews and a three-month trial period before being officially hired.
  • Receive formal Agile methodology training and continual improvement exercises.
  • Have diverse backgrounds, but have one thing in common, they are great thinkers and problem solvers.
  • Integrate with client teams as much as or as little as is appropriate – the client always retains all IP.

Our Recent Java Development Projects

Client Spotlight:
Worthworm is an online pre-money valuation tool that offers comprehensive and reliable PMV base on more than 1400 parameters for early stage startups and angel investors.As a part of the Worthworm development, Kanda implemented a standard Java-based MVC architecture. For the main framework Kanda team used the Spring Framework, as one of the most common and widespread solutions for Java Enterprise applications. Besides the Spring Framework Core itself, we also took advantage of the Spring Framework extensions for database Object Relation Management (Spring Data JPA) and integrated Queuing, Pooling and Multi-threading (Spring Batch). Both are natively combined with the Spring Core and allow high level of integration transparency, fast development and easy maintainability.
