Full Time
Whenever I speak to candidates I always tend to get the same complaint's about job ads... they never seem to answer the following questions - Who? What? How?

So I am going to 'go against the grain' with this ad and answer those questions whilst hopefully describing an appealing role!

WHO they are?

They are a Global Travel Management Organisation operating in the UK, US and wider parts of Europe. They are established as a niche provider of services to a wide customer base and operate a rewarding and collaborative company culture. They are known for being an organisation that actually invests in technology as demonstrated by their focus on Cloud hosted platforms, Microservices architectures and their use of PowerBI.

WHAT will the role consist of?

This role is a 'hybrid' role in that it will involve a mix of hands on programming in C#.NET, discussions around various architecture patterns (Microservices, N-Tier) and mentoring/coaching of both Junior and Mid-Level Developers. You will be expected to act as a subject matter expert for all things software development and will be expected to both drive coding standards (SOLID, DRY) and also lead by example with your own work.

The role itself won't involve direct line management as you will be working alongside the Development Team Lead but there is an opportunity to either progress down the management route (i.e. Development Manager) or the technical route (i.e. Lead Architect) depending on your specific preference.

The role will involve exposure to a mix of both greenfield product development (Azure, Web API, C#, MVC) and the maintenance of their larger legacy systems (WPF, Web Forms). There will be an opportunity to offer your own thoughts on the technological direction and you will play a crucial role in their technical strategy moving forward.

HOW will you benefit?

You will benefit by joining an organisation with genuine and tailored career development opportunities. Their current Head of IT started life as a Developer and that opportunity is only limited by your own wants and needs - simply put, if you are an ambitious person then this is the perfect company for you.

So if you are genuinely sitting at work contemplating your next career move or simply fancy a chat to learn more about this role then give me a shout. You can call me on either or .

Alternatively, if you are unable to chat then send me an email to .

Anything discussed will be kept completely confidential.
