Job Description

Nowadays, more and more organisations are developing Software with a Mobile-first strategy as the world becomes more and more open to accessing content on the go. This organisation are at the forefront of that strategy and are looking to recruit an experienced Lead Xamarin Developer with a background developing commercial Mobile applications using C#, Xamarin and MVVM.

This organisation are one of the key players in the insurance sector and have a range of flagship, award-winning Mobile applications that help engage with their enormous customer base. Their Developers work across a portfolio of applications and their 2017 strategy has seen a big focus on greenfield application development to help drive the organisation forwards in an increasingly competitive market place.

You will sit within an Agile team of Mobile Developers, acting as the Lead Developer and taking on a hybrid focus. You will provide mentoring and coaching to the wider team whilst at the same time getting involved with the technical strategy and product roadmaps for a couple of new applications.

Your role will focus on building a great Mobile experience, constantly innovating what is possible on Mobile to deliver new and exciting experiences to their end users. You will focus on a 'quality-first' approach to development, adhering to coding standards and best practice (SOLID, DRY, KISS) and ensuring the UX is always at the forefront of any technical strategies.

Moreover, you will utilise a range of modern methodologies/principles such as Scrum, Test Driven Development (TDD), Behaviour Driven Development (BDD), Continuous Integration and DevOps to ensure that features are delivered to the highest possible standard at all times. Your role will be to ensure that corners aren't cut (for lack of a better phrase...) and that solutions reflect the organisation's excellent reputation for innovation.

From a technical standpoint, they are looking for you to have a strong background in Xamarin (Xmarin.Android, Xamarin.iOS) application development and excellent C# programming skills. Furthermore, you should have strong experience of developing responsive UI for both Mobile and tablet as well as experience building RESTful APIs. Experience with tools such as Git, Jenkins and Sonar would also be hugely beneficial to be considered for this position.

Ultimately, they want a Lead Developer who is genuinely passionate about Mobile technology and the benefits it can bring to an organisation. They want somebody who is confident and capable of delivering Mobile applications on a large scale and somebody who wants to continuously improve.
