Ideally you will have 1 year of experience, but they will also consider recent graduates with a passion for software development. They will provide all the training necessary for you to quickly become an important part of the software development team and to start contributing to their product suite.

You will join an expanding agile team within a finance technology company, working on projects built on top of their new and innovative Cloud platform. We are looking for a talented, creative developer who is keen to improve.
This is a coding role using coding standards, patterns, pairing and design. You will primarily concentrate on JavaScript ES6, but also use JQUERY, HTML and, CSS.

· Childcare Vouchers - A work/life balance can be difficult with young children, so there is a childcare voucher scheme through Edenred, by way of salary sacrifice
· Eye test - the cost of your eye tests is covered and a contribution towards the cost of your glasses or contact lenses if you need to wear them when working
· Dress - What you wear each day is up to you. They don’t have a strict dress code - it’s about being adaptable in your style to suit the nature of your working day
· Social - They are proud of their team spirit, their social committee organise plenty of events from bowling to go karting and evenings out
· Christmas - A good venue is booked so staff can celebrate Christmas in style! The annual party and ad hoc events are a chance to have fun with teammates and enjoy the entertainment provided
· Office Environment - Enjoy a relaxed, comfortable working environment close to town centre amenities
· Charity - Each year different charities benefit from the annual football tournament, bake-off, tough mudders, skydives and more. You name it we’ll do it for charity!
· Sporting Events - Can’t bear to miss the World Cup and Wimbledon? Don’t worry, you’ll be able to watch the matches on numerous televisions around the office
