  • Reviewing pull requests (for senior-level developers).
  • Writing clean, maintainable code based on SOLID principles.
  • Bug fixing and support work.
  • Hosting maintenance.
  • DevOps.
  • Testing your own work.
  • Involvement in process improvement.

  • You’ll have a strong desire to learn and to share your knowledge with your team. In addition, you’ll be flexible enough to adapt your approach to different team members, helping to motivate and inspire with a positive attitude.
  • You must excel at managing delivery, with a keen ability to define team and project objectives including expectations and deadlines and monitor the progress of your projects against targets.
  • You will use your strong oral and written communication skills to build rapport with internal and external stakeholders on your projects. You will be a good listener, but also highly-persuasive, using facts, clear arguments and personal conviction to influence and persuade others.

Essential skills and experience:

  • Developing across full stack, and in particular back end systems using a combination of .NET, .NET Core, MVC and SQL.
  • Writing and executing unit and integration testing.
  • Managing multiple projects in a fast-paced, time-sensitive, results-oriented, web-based development environment and an understanding of what's required to get the job done.
  • The entire lifecycle of digital development from Information Architecture to prototyping, to user testing to internal testing and bug-fixing.

Ideal skills and experience:

  • Complex API and CMS development (ideally Umbraco or Kentico).
  • OO design patterns and SOLID design principles.
  • Software design and architecture.
  • JavaScript, HTML and CSS.
  • Jira/Confluence.
