We are looking for talented and versatile software developers with commercial experience to join our London team.
At Softwire, our developers operate in an environment truly tailored for them, empowered to work to the best of their ability and led by managers who are all developers or ex-developers themselves. We are totally committed to Doing Things Right and place a massive focus on the quality of our processes and output. We don’t cut corners and we do our utmost to deliver great quality results for our clients. Nor do we skimp on the quality of the training and personal development of our team members; our employees never stop learning and we expect them – with our help – to keep striving to become better developers.
We are technology agnostic and our developers are typically multi-skilled, working in a range of languages and environments according to the requirements of each client project. The most common technologies are full-stack Java and .NET, but there are plenty of other opportunities too including mobile development, Ruby and Python. Our projects are generally run as Agile unless there’s a good reason not to.
We’re looking for people with ideally 2+ years’ experience of mainstream commercial software development. It will help if you’ve done a lot of full stack java or .NET work but we won’t rule you out if you haven’t. Above all, we want people who are flexible, have a can-do attitude, and who are willing to learn – and capable of picking up new skills extremely quickly. To be a successful applicant you will need a real passion for programming and to have demonstrated excellence in previous employment.
Total package is £40k-£80k DOE. Please state salary expectations when you apply.
We pride ourselves on our responsiveness and the quality of our customer service, and that extends to the way we treat you as an applicant.
- We respond to 95% of applications within one working day (99%+ within two days) and will resolve any queries you have just as quickly.
- At every stage in the process it typically takes less than two working days for you to receive results.
- Interviews can be arranged as soon as you wish, subject to availability and two business days’ notice.
We also pride ourselves on hiring people with the greatest potential, rather than just those with prior experience, and we do all we can to bring out the best from you in the interviews by making them as relaxed as possible. We value your time, and we don’t ask you to answer unnecessary questions on application forms or spend hours on preparation. Our recruitment process consists of three straightforward stages:
- Submission of your initial application.
- Completion of online tests and/or a short telephone interview.
- A second interview in our offices lasting a few hours. This consists of a number of technical and logical reasoning tests and requires no preparation.
