Your role in the team

We’re looking for an established Developer to join our expanding team with plans to grow this further in line with the exciting future plans the business has.

What you’ll be working on

At High Speed Training, we’re all about enhancing the learning experience for our users so you’ll be part of a highly skilled development team contributing creatively and helping to shape the next generation of our training content.

Under the guidance of one of our experienced Lead Developers, you’ll work in two week sprints within a squad that’s aligned to one of our key business objectives. These are set up to allow you to collaborate with other developers, web designers and product owners to create easy-to-use, innovative solutions through the integration of third party API’s and systems that help drive levels of customer engagement and satisfaction for our learners.

This is a great opportunity where you can progress your career in a fun and supportive environment, learning from our Lead and Senior Developers with dedicated time in every two week sprint for personal development to help you stay up to date with new technologies and grow as a Developer.

The interview process

All interviews are conducted virtually through a two stage process:

  • 1st stage - meet one of our Lead Developers to talk through your experience and High Speed Training, as well as giving you the opportunity to learn more about us.
  • 2nd stage - Complete our technical challenge which will be reviewed and discussed during the 2nd interview. This is also your chance to meet the wider team and some of your fellow developers.

What we're looking for

You’ll need to be comfortable working in sprint cycles and have previously been part of an agile, collaborative and multidisciplinary team.

We’re looking someone with good knowledge of a range of technical skills, including:

  • C#
  • .NET
  • TDD (Unit/Integration/Selenium)
  • Typescript
  • ORMs (nHibernate, EntityFramework)
  • SQL

Our people are at the heart of our business and we offer a great environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you'll need for a rewarding career with a team who are passionate about what they do. This is backed by our recent 3 star accreditation, the highest accolade from Best Companies achieved through our ‘world class’ levels of engagement.

We are fully committed to supporting our staff to work in a flexible way that allows them to balance all of their commitments both inside and outside of work. As we move forward and grow we are committed to supporting our teams to work in a way that lets them be at their best, whether that’s on-site or remotely anywhere in the UK, traditional or flexible working hours.

We'll welcome you on-board with 24 days holiday (plus 8 bank holidays) with the opportunity to buy additional holiday if you fancy an extended break, a great annual bonus scheme, the latest mobile phone and contract (that’s on us!), and a staff benefits scheme (with over 250 discounts and offers available).

We also offer free life insurance (which covers 4-times your salary), private medical insurance for you and your family and an attractive pension package.

Having fun both inside and outside work is really important to us so we have a highly motivated social committee who organise regular social events which previously ranged from escape rooms, meals out and bowling to Tough Mudders. They’ve even worked hard to keep the fun going virtually since we’ve all been unable to get together.

We are following government guidelines closely and all employees are working from home wherever possible until further notice. We are open to applications no matter where you are located in the UK and we have moved our interview and onboarding process to be fully virtual.
