Description

We build exceptional digital products. And that’s just the beginning…

We’re on the lookout for a Backend Developer, to join a team dedicated to building amazing content-managed websites. That means an exciting blend of greenfield development, mixed with continuous improvement work that helps us maintain our long-term relationships with our existing partners.

If you want an idea of what the role entails, you’ll mostly be working on websites based on the Umbraco CMS, which means working in .NET / ASP.NET (mostly MVC). For the right candidate, we’re willing to provide on the job training to introduce you to our way of working, and other relevant areas of knowledge.

We don't obsess about skill sets and keywords. Who you are is more important, and how you think is the only true requirement. If desired, this role can include oversight over some of our other developers, and could be the start of a path towards a leadership role. Either way, the job involves input on a broad range of projects across the company, with some pretty exciting clients.

We work in a fluid & lean way, so you'll need to be comfortable working iteratively with the rest of the team to deliver an excellent result without specifications or intensive project management. You'll be expected to take ownership of your work, manage your time, communicate in a dynamic team, and ultimately deliver quality code.

In return, you’ll have all the support you need. You’ll be working under a team lead who can manage and help you, and with other talented backend-focused colleagues. Working alongside best-in-class UX designers and frontend developers, you’ll get to deliver incredible websites, and make a real impact to our business, our relationships, and our output.

Remote working options available

Your career is about what you do - not where you are. This role is available in any of our offices (Southampton, London or Capetown) and can also have a flexible work from home option, or be remote. We trust our employees and we want to find something which works for everyone, so if that sounds appealing, let's chat.
