Our strategy is set, our direction is clear. What comes next is to apply our skills and experience through brilliant team work to innovate, design, and implement systems that deliver real business value.

You’ll ensure that all IT applications are well designed, highly resilient and cost effective.

About our team

We work closely with our testers and product owners to form our Scrum teams. We don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too!

A bit about you
You’ll have experience as a software developer or engineer and be able to develop web and mobile applications using open stack technologies. You’ll have knowledge in test driven development and software engineering tools. You will have experience of delivering and supporting IT services using ITIL best practice and Agile methodologies.

We have invested heavily in our IT infrastructure to allow us to work in an agile way. You could choose to be based from your home (we’re all working this way at the moment), anywhere around the country or if you prefer company you could work from one of our regional hubs.
