What is it like being a Developer?

A developer's environment is one of constant evolution. The advances in technology continue to be staggering and having the skills to navigate the changing tech landscape is essential for your career in development.

C# is a general-purpose object-oriented programming language and because of that it is hugely valuable and can be used in a variety of incredible ways.

As a developer, you will work closely with other developers, product managers, designers, business analysts and testers to constantly create, maintain and modify systems to meet the demands of the business and their stakeholders. You will not only design and write well-formed, readable 'DRY' code but you'll be well versed in standard practices such as Test-Driven Development and Behaviour Driven Development, and understand how you can work efficiently within agile continuous development (CI/CD) pipelines for your software delivery process.

It doesn't stop there. To design excellent systems, you also have to consider performance, scalability, security and make sure you're testing it every step of the way to lower the risk of problems further down the line.

If this sounds like something you would love to do then don't wait, apply right now, we recruit all year round.
