We have opportunities for modern thinking software engineers to join our talented multi-disciplined product focused teams at Code Computerlove. As a Senior, you'll play a critical role in defining the technical solutions within the team, as well as supporting and mentoring other Professional & Foundation level developers to progress. You will have the support from our ‘Best in Industry’ Principal Software Engineers, so you can keep progressing your own skills – hopefully to a Principal level yourself!

Role and responsibilities...

As a Senior Engineer reporting into your teams Software Development Lead you will help to deliver Code Computerlove’s lean/agile vision, identifying and delivering measurable value and iterative products with your teams’ portfolio of clients.

You must have a strong desire to improve yourself and learn from others, whilst also getting involved in the Code Computerlove culture of learning & sharing.

Who are you?

Perhaps you are not sure how your current role can grow any further, or you are lacking the support to keep progressing…?

Skills and experience...

Essential

  • Solid understanding of what Code Craftsmanship is (Clean Code, TDD, Refactoring techniques) and can demonstrate this understanding through collaborative working practices & pair coding.
  • You have used a range of technology, highly capable with C#, NodeJS, Git, CI & Deployment automation, however more importantly can demonstrate your engineering practices/craftsmanship to new technology – perhaps via examples on your personal GitHub repo.
  • Experience in utilising cloud services and DevOps practices in Azure or AWS.
  • Comfortable in JavaScript, HTML and CSS, however you will have a Front End specialist in your team to work with and learn from.
  • You have had experience of Lean or Agile working practices, but want to cement your knowledge and help contribute continuous improvement and eliminating waste as part of a team.
  • You will have as much passion in HOW you work & deliver solutions to problems as you do in the technology you use, so terms like 'Craftsmanship', 'Clean Code', 'TDD', 'Self Organising', 'Metrics', 'Fast Feedback', 'Automate Everything' is something you believe in very strongly.
  • You are already a competent developer, but looking for the support & culture to progress further.

Desirable

  • Exposure to open source or enterprise level Content Management Systems (CMS).
