Web Application Developer
(Intermediate & Senior positions available)
Location Chalgrove, Oxford (OX44)
Salary £25-60K, dependent on experience
Job Type Full-Time, Permanent
Are you searching for a developer-centric and technology-focused software company where you can expand your experience?
At NewOrbit we’re a growing team and are looking for two developers to join us in delivering entirely bespoke, highly-scalable, cloud-hosted web applications for our clients.
Whether you are looking to move on from your first job or are an experienced senior developer - we’d love to hear from you.
For a more senior role we would like someone who has strong software design experience and who is comfortable with DI, TDD/BDD and continuous deployment.
Our stack is primarily .NET on the backend with Angular or React on the front-end, though we do have variations on that. NewOrbit host everything on Azure, using a wide range of the available technologies. We’re a Microsoft Gold Partner, working very closely with Microsoft and on new Azure technologies before they are released to the general public.
NewOrbit use Agile (specifically Scrum and Kanban) software development methods, so you should be able to understand and utilise these approaches (or be keen to learn).
Work with us to:
- Enjoy what you do: We hire smart people who share our drive and are genuinely proud of our team. We do projects that we believe in and aren’t afraid to challenge clients (and say no). We get our work done and go home - there’s no late-night working culture here.
- Grow your career: Our supportive environment and clear career paths help you thrive. NewOrbit provide access to Pluralsight on-demand training and share knowledge within the team through brown bags & coding sessions.
- Stay interested: We welcome innovation and stay at the forefront, actively encouraging side projects and experimentation. We provide MSDN Azure credits that you can use for whatever you like.
- Have an impact: Our driver is to make a positive difference to our clients and the team, so we look for people who own problems and feel personal pride in what they do. We rely on everyone in the team to look outwards and help decide and drive our technical strategy. If you think there’s something we can do better, we’ll listen.
Overview & Responsibilities
- Work as part of a small project team where everyone is involved in the planning and execution of work.
- Be responsible for your own development tasks, delivering them on time and within agreed budgets.
- Carry out code reviews and submit pull requests to be reviewed by the team.
- Handover developed user stories for acceptance testing.
- Participate in technical design and planning.
- Continually look at & assess new technologies and patterns.
In addition, for a more senior role:
- Act as a technical lead for allocated projects, responsible for the development output.
- Act as technical product owner on behalf of NewOrbit, responsible for the infrastructure/application design and estimating enhancement projects.
- Mentoring other members of the development team.
Interested? Please send us your CV and any useful links you might have (stackoverflow, github, open source projects) using the contact form.
You’ll be asked to complete two really short programming questions - you can do it in whatever programming language you like and should only take you about 10-15 minutes. It might seem a bit impersonal doing this first, but it gives us a good feel for your thought processes behind your coding.
The next step is a short telephone call with one of our Principal developers - so they can have a quick chat about what you are interested in and your past experience.
If that all goes well, you’ll be invited to come meet some of the team in our Chalgrove office. We’ll talk more about the role and how you can contribute. Expect a mixture of technical and non-technical questions, with some programming or technical design.
You’ll then get feedback on our decision - we might even make you an offer then and there. Look forward to hearing from you!
