Mid/Senior C# Developer

As a Senior Developer you should be passionate about offering technical expertise on complex projects. You will be a team player but also work effectively on your own to meet deadlines, liaising with the project manager, account managers, creatives and developers. You should be sociable and like to play pool, arcade games and table football!
The environment is fast-paced, dynamic and cutting edge. Working on end-to-end projects, you will be creating, designing and developing with the latest development technologies.
The quality of our developers is key to everything we do: due to our on-going growth, we’re looking for a talented back-end/full-stack developer who can help us create top quality code to exceed customer expectations.

 

Key Responsibilities:

  • Development of integrations and complex web application components for our customers
  • Building powerful, re-usable packages to help us build better, more reliable solutions for our customers, faster

  • Getting involved in building pre-sales demos, helping us to sell more effectively and to POC the latest, bleeding edge technologies
  • Acting as point of expertise for solving hard problems, whether related to integrations or complex business logic
  • Helping coach the team on producing quality, maintainable, extensible code
  • Improve our efficiency and quality by helping evolve our development processes, improving our CI and CD process

Core Skills:

These are the core skills you’d be using, but aptitude always beats a set of skills for us, so don’t be put off if you don’t hit some/lots of these or are coming from another technology stack and are prepared to make the transition.
You’ll probably have 2-3+ years’ experience as a software developer, but talent wins over experience, if you can prove your talent and ability to produce great quality code that’s what counts.
