Full Time

We are looking for highly motivated Java developers who have a strong technical background, and also enjoy working directly with clients, helping them to solve real business issues to join our development team in Sheffield.

About Us

We are a fast growing IT consultancy with an expanding client-base across the UK. Formed in 2007, we have an established range of clients from large government organisations to small, fast growing technology start-ups. We help our clients to manage large IT developments, providing advice on technical design, architecture and business analysis. We also provide software development services, building IT platforms from the ground up using technologies that match our clients' needs. We have a high calibre team and operate in a flat organisational structure, with every member of the team considered equally important as each is an expert in his or her own field. We offer an opportunity to learn new skills, work with a variety of clients on projects of all sizes and to shape your own career.

The job:

The role is for a developer who has the ability to support both our software development and consultancy projects. The role involves hands-on software development, working closely with our client teams using Agile development processes. The candidate would also provide technical expertise and consultancy services for our expanding client-base. In addition to technical capability, strong analytical, written communication and presentation skills are extremely important to this role.

About you:

Our ideal candidate is conscientious, client-focused and able to work to tight deadlines, sometimes at short notice. You are reliable, self-motivated and able to work without close supervision. You are a technically proficient application developer with impressive analytic and communication skills; you are comfortable with talking to clients and enjoy the variety of working on different projects. You are likely to be someone with a minimum of 5 years of relevant work experience, with exposure to the entire software life cycle. Any experience of enterprise-level applications and their integration with other systems would be highly desirable.

Technical skills and experience

Desirable technical skills and experience may include:

  • Scientific or technical degree or relevant professional qualification/experience

  • Technical expertise in back end development (e.g. Java 8, Spring Framework, JMS, Webservices, REST)

  • Technical expertise in front end development (e.g. Javascript, Angular.JS, HTML 5, CSS 3, SASS)
  • Technical expertise in integration technology (Camel + ActiveMQ or Servicemix/Fuse stacks in particular)

  • Technical expertise in testing tools and methodology

  • Technical expertise in database design and programming, particularly using open source data technologies - both traditional RDBMS and NoSQL

  • Sound understanding of software development life cycle models and familiarisation of software version control tools (specifically GIT).

  • Experience of development methodologies, especially Agile and Waterfall

  • Confidence to liaise with customers, testers and suppliers to provide integration support and undertake root cause analysis where required

  • Fluency in multiple programming languages or technology stacks.


The role is based in Sheffield. There may be some provision for working from home. Willingness to work in London from time to time would be an advantage.
