LexisNexis need full stack engineers to help build our next generation 'Google for Lawyers' product. In a cross-functional agile team you'll be pairing to write test-driven front-end and back-end code and working closely with UX, QA and the business every day to deliver value.

We need developers with strong experience in JavaScript, .NET and ideally unit and functional testing, but most importantly a passion for building things.

  • Good knowledge of HTML and CSS
  • Good C# (or equivalent strongly typed OO language) skills and have used them in a web based MVC application
  • Knowledge of all the bits of a modern web application stack - preferably in relation to .NET (e.g NuGet for package management, webpack or similar for client-side bundles etc)
  • Understand CI and deployment pipelines, even if you haven't built them yourself
  • A test-driven, or test-aware approach to everything you build
  • Git competent
  • Good communicator - we work daily with technical and non-technical team members and good communication is essential
