There is no mention of Java. Wtf. 10 years of exp for only a senior role? If they pay you 100€ per hour then fine but in that level that’s the minimum. Tbh the job description is all over the place and so do they.

Some good people have a lot more than ten years experience and are regular or senior developers. It's not like there's a common agreement about what terms mean across the industry :)

I'm trying really hard to decode what they meant. Maybe this?

M: Oracle DB
E: Java EE
A: React
N: Tomcat

I think they left out the opening description. If you imagine it saying, "senior software engineer wanted for Java role)" first then none of the rest of it is particularly off.

I bet they were a little too close to it and not used to writing job specs.

Hopefully they learn something.
