Our client is an exciting, well-established software development company with a wide range of projects to become involved with, mostly involving SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) web applications, but ranging from traditional CMS and eCommerce websites through to cutting-edge real-time platforms and mobile applications.

You will become involved with both Agile and waterfall projects, working on mobile-first, cloud-first, and more.

Key requirements:


  • Highly proficient in core JavaScript skills, cross-discipline, and capable of working with a mix of technologies.

  • An organised self-starter with effective communication skills.
  • Detail-oriented and care about the quality of your work.
  • A strong grasp of programming theory and be able to adapt your knowledge to fit a given situation.
  • Be passionate about DRY principles and be able to create robust, reusable code that can easily be extended and maintained.

  • Python, Ruby, PHP, Go
  • Mobile apps
  • Writing specs and technical documentation

In addition to a competitive salary you will receive security of tenure, a company pension along with a healthy work-life balance and full-time remote working.
