Join us as a Software Engineer

  • In your new role, you’ll engineer and maintain innovative, customer centric, high performance, secure and robust solutions

  • It’s a chance to hone your existing technical skills and advance your career as you develop the discipline of software engineering across the business

What you'll do

As a Software Engineer, you’ll design, develop and deploy applications capable of meeting and exceeding the anticipated load, performance and availability volumes, including load balancing, performance testing and benchmarking.

You’ll be working within a feature team and using extensive experience to engineer software, scripts and tools that are often complex, as well as liaising with other engineers, architects and business analysts across the platform.

You’ll also be:

You’ll also have experience of test-driven development alongside the use of automated test frameworks, mocking or stubbing and unit testing tools. Ideally, you’ll also have a background in solving highly complex, analytical and numerical problems.

It's essential that you have experience with MVC 4.0 and above, C#, Ajax, jQuery, CSS3, Bootstrap, SQL servers, Bitbucket and Git. And you'll pair this with knowledge of database design, T-SQL programming and query optimisation.

You’ll also need:

  • Experience in .Net core, web API, Angular or ReactJS, and an understanding of cloud platforms such as IaaS and PaaS
  • Knowledge of functions and stored procedures
