Software Developer Ronald James Group 2019-10-01

Our client is looking for a talented and enthusiastic software developers to help with the rapid growth of our software platform. You will work in an agile environment on features, improvements and experiences that have a real impact for their customers.

They are building a development scrum pod where we'd like 4 new developers to be 100% focused on developing the best product, using the best technologies, working with some great architects on international projects. There is huge opportunity to grow a career with our client, they have a parent company is investing heavily and this will be an early entry into what will be a significant development base for their global operation.

We've recently moved into new offices and have quite a relaxed atmosphere; staff are friendly, sociable and are well fed. Work provides free refreshments, fancy coffee, fruit and a well-stocked fridge... including beers on Fridays. There's entertainment in the break out area and there's quite often a game of Mario Kart on the go.

The right developer will need to be versatile, highly technical and capable of taking responsibility for their workload. There's a fairly shallow management structure so you won't be micromanaged, but you will be expected to show initiative and take pride in your work.


You will primarily be working on development of the core platform, which is a multi-tenant system built with ASP.NET MVC. We also have two mobile products, one native iOS app and another iOS app developed using Xamarin.

There will most likely be opportunities to work on all of these in the future as work often spans the platforms. Adding new features in their mobile apps often requires the creation of associated services on the web and vice versa. Initially however, most of the work you undertake will be done in C# and front end languageas.  

Key Responsibilities

We are looking for flexible developers, who can context switch and get up to speed with new technologies quickly. You don't need to have all of the skills below but you should at least be familiar with most of the concepts;

  • C# and ASP.NET MVC
  • Windsor, Unity or another DI container
  • NHibernate (or similar ORM)
  • Javascript, along with KnockoutJS (or another JS frontend framework)
  • Semantic HTML & CSS
  • API Development / Consumption
  • Experience working on multi-tenant systems
  • Strong grasp of SOLID principles
  • An ability to write clear, understandable and object-orientated code; hopefully the words Service and Factory mean something to you.
  • Performance tuning is beneficial (queries and code)
  • Experience with iOS development and/or Xamarin is a strong bonus.
  • Serialization methods and data formats (json/xml)
  • Experience writing unit tests, preferably BDD (we use Mspec)
  • Understanding of CI, build servers and test runners (we use teamcity)
  • Source code management, we primarily use Mercurial (git is fine)


  • Generous holiday allowance
  • Pension scheme
  • Great starting salary
  • Opportunity for progression
  • Flexible Time
  • Home Working
