I’ve been a developer here for just over a year. I initially joined the team as a Physics graduate with zero web development experience.

Coming into such a collaborative, helpful and laid-back environment has made the transition to becoming a developer easy! I’ve found dedicated personal development time useful to learn my craft as people are always there for advice and input.

WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING:


If successful, you’ll be starting on our Full Stack (Javascript / C#) developer training scheme.

From day one, you’ll be pairing with our experienced developers to learn about our systems and what’s required of the role; you’ll take on their day-to-day workload, including feature development, maintenance, and bug-fixing on our live products, to expose you to working life in a self-motivating technical team.

As a learning provider, we believe that our staff members are learners too, so we promote an environment where you can try things out, work on personal projects, and practice new skills by pairing with other members of the team.

  • Testing methodologies and frameworks
  • Ability to develop specialist knowledge in areas of interest
  • Design Patterns and knowledge of implementation
  • Opportunity to work in a business where you can influence how we work
  • A collaborative working environment where you can discuss and resolve coding issues with your peers in a varied range of business critical products and projects
  • Annual ‘hackathon’ as well as dedicated time and budget for training and personal development
YOU'LL GET:
