About us:
General Technology are a software development and IT services company based in Shoreditch, London. We have over 30 years of experience in this field, and specialise in servicing the higher education sector. We are currently looking for a keen and motivated junior developer to join our growing team and help us build great products for our clients.

About you:
Our ideal candidate is a junior in the technology field - we aren't looking for bags of experience, but we do require you to have a proven interest in technology and software.

The role:
We currently have a number of software products that we are in the process of developing, and we are growing a core team of dedicated developers to build them. As part of this core team, you will be involved in the product design, development (front and back end), deployment and support - this gives you a real end-to-end view of how the industry works, and provides you with a platform to make an impact. It also means that you will form a key part of our team, and we will provide you with a supportive learning environment to ensure that you have everything you need to learn on the job. You will report directly to the Head of Product Development, who will also act as your career mentor - they will work with you on a daily basis to ensure that your development project is running smoothly, but you will be responsible for setting and hitting your own deadlines and goals.

Core skills:
- A keen interest in developing a deep skillset in full-stack software development
- A self-motivated attitude and strong work ethic
- Ability to work independently and self-manage, but ask for help when needed
- Understanding of the software development lifecycle, and the industry more generally

Desirable skills:
- Experience in web development (e.g. HTML, CSS, Javascript, Angular, Web APIs)
- Experience in programming (e.g. VBA, C#)
- Experience with database design (e.g. SQL, MS Access)
- General IT support skills (e.g. servers, networks, troubleshooting)
