Full Time
I am recruiting for experienced Lead Developer on behalf of a leading Software House in Newcastle upon Tyne. They are a customer-driven organisation with a focus on delivering end-to-end Software/Web projects to a range of customers spanning multiple verticals.

They are a true Tech company with a focus on a 'quality first' approach to Software Development, adhering to coding standards (SOLID, DRY) and industry best practice. You will gain genuine (and tailored) career progression alongside the benefit of working in a friendly and collaborative office space.

But enough about them... this advert is all about you. Specifically, what you will need to know should you be interested in applying:

* Strong commercial experience programming in C#.
* Excellent knowledge of the wider Microsoft stack including ASP.NET (Web API, MVC), WCF and Team Foundation Server.
* Commercial experience working on Cloud-based technologies such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.
* Strong database experience with MS SQL Server and Entity Framework. Experience with MongoDB would also be highly beneficial.
* Commercial experience building Web applications using HTML, CSS, AJAX, JavaScript and JQuery. Wider knowledge of AngularJS/ReactJS would be highly beneficial.
* Experience with CMS including Sitecore and Umbraco.
* Commercial experience implementing Agile/Scrum processes into a development environment, as well as a clear focus on adhering to coding standards (SOLID, DRY).
* Experience working across the full Software Development Lifecycle including an understanding of Automation Testing and Microsoft Infrastructure.
* Knowledge of Continuous Integration and Test Driven Development.

In return for demonstrating some (hopefully all!) of the above, you will benefit from a highly competitive salary (£50,000 - £55,000) alongside a flexible benefits package including a company bonus scheme, 25 days holiday and private healthcare. Moreover, their office location is genuinely awesome and includes relaxation areas and free fruit/coffee... what more could you possibly want.

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.
