The role

A developer role but not as you know it, we do not build websites or applications. The role is about guiding best practice on how to build and architect the perfect solution on modern .NET applications and CMS platforms such as Sitecore, Kentico, Sitefinity or Umbraco and how to get the most from the platform on a technical level. Your day to day will be assisting with the design of cloud hosting solutions for .NET CMS platforms and custom applications, writing scripts to automate and test DevOps (Selenium) on top of the platform and helping resolve major incidents with our clients systems (don’t worry, no bug fixing!). You will provide guidance and recommendations on how to address and resolve issues, if that is by installing a hotfix, a simple code fix or something more fundamental.  This a role for someone who has been doing development work for the last couple of years and is looking to grow in remit, open to learning new technologies, cloud and happy to get their hands dirty where required. You might be from a digital agency [fed up with burning the midnight oil?] or a digital tech team client side. You may be looking to move your career on from pure development to the DevOps or Managed Services space.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Problem solving and resolution to incidents caused by application or infrastructure issues for clients
  • Working as part of a solution team to design cloud hosting solutions for .NET or custom applications
  • Designing, architecting and implementing DevOps tools, pipelines and Infrastructure-as-Code
  • Involvement in helping improve and automate our internal processes
