Software Developer
Are you a bright and talented individual, who is keen to develop and grow their career further?
We are looking for a Software Developer whose primary focus will be to implement development activities that will build and enhance our core, market leading suite of products.
Dynamic Planner is a well-established suite of web-based applications dealing with financial planning - aimed primarily at Financial Advisers. Our software is used by over 1,900 firms, who have over 2,100 active sessions each day.
About the Role of the Software Developer:
Most of our software development is focused on adding new modules to our core applications, but we also spend time extending or refactoring existing code and fixing bugs. Our developers work in sprint teams alongside testers, solution consultants and a project manager, following the Scrum or Kanban methodologies.
Because most work is adding new functionality to our core applications for our existing uses, it tends to be very research-based. We involve our users all the way through the design, development and testing of new functionality, trying to get new changes live as quickly as we can.
We are looking for a developer with experience of creating great web-based user interfaces, although we would expect them to understand the whole stack. We primarily use MVC 5, C#, .Net Core, and Microsoft SQL Server.
Requirements for the Software Developer:

* has a passion and enthusiasm for writing good code;
* is great at teamwork;
* thrives on a challenge;
* is flexible and able to adapt to most situations.
* takes responsibility for completing tasks, and takes pride in their work;
* has a drive to do the right thing;
* is willing to challenge and ask questions;
* has a desire to learn and grow.
In addition, you will:
* Ideally have a degree or equivalent;
* Have 3+ years of commercial experience, and solid experience of C#, MVC and SQL.
Experience of working with the following are beneficial:
* service-oriented architectures;
* Microsoft Azure;
* Microsoft Azure DevOps;
* Git
Also, if you have knowledge or experience of financial services, this would be a bonus!
