Umbraco/.Net Web Developer (Mid-weight)

Job Description

We're on the hunt for an additional web developer to join our team. We don't obsess about skillsets and keywords; who you are and how you think are more important, but if you want an idea of what the role entails, then in a nutshell it'll mostly be maintaining and building websites based on the Umbraco CMS. That means almost exclusively .Net (mostly MVC), although crossover knowledge of frontend (in particular JavaScript development including AngularJS) would be very helpful.

We work in a relatively fluid & lean way so you'll need to be comfortable working iteratively with the rest of the team to deliver an outstanding result without specifications or intensive project management. You'll be expected to take ownership of your elements of a project, working alongside UXers, designers and frontend developers, under the umbrella of a digital producer and our technical manager, to take projects from concepts to delivery and beyond.

Being a busy agency, you'll be working on multiple projects at the same time alongside a lengthy list of maintenance and update tasks, and so will be expected to take responsibility for your own time management and delivery within the team.

 

You must have experience of:

  • ASP.Net (Webforms and MVC)
  • Umbraco CMS
  • REST services (ie WebAPI)
  • n-Tier architecture
  • HTML/CSS/JavaScript (crossover knowledge only, this is a backend role)
  • Source code management (SCM); Mercurial (hg), git or TFS
  • Working in an agile/lean team (eg Scrum)
  • Agency/multiple concurrent projects

 

Nice to haves:

  • ORMs (eg Entity Framework, nHibernate, ServiceStack, PetaPoco)
  • AngularJS
  • Test Driven Development (TDD)
  • Continuous Integration
  • Continuous Deployment

If it feels right for both of us, we'll talk about salaries and details. If it still feels right after that - welcome aboard!

 

The package:

  • Salary range £30-£35k, depending on experience.
  • Up to 25 days of holiday, plus your birthday off.
  • Free work/job related training.
  • A job related book of your choice each month.
  • Contributory pension scheme.
  • Childcare vouchers.
  • Glasses vouchers.
  • Cycle to work scheme.
  • Sick pay package.
  • 'Bacon Roll Fridays' and finish at 3pm.
  • Pizza days and drinks at the launch of every new project.
