Are you frustrated that the only way for you to progress is by moving into management? Do you want to move away from a hands-on coding role yet still remain very technical? Or perhaps you want to design larger systems? We have been engaged to find a Senior Developer or part Developer, part Architect who wants a fast-paced and thoroughly challenging role designing enterprise-scale software solutions.

In this post you will be responsible for understanding multiple web systems and conceiving a solution. The role entails lots of code investigation, researching what can be done, working with various teams, and some coding too (about 20%, e.g. proof of concepts).

You will be the go-to person for around 15 .NET Developers as you will have experienced the same issues / problems they are facing at some point in your career. Mentoring these Developers will also be part of your role. You'll QA their code and be responsible for governance and coding standards.

The Developers are developing web apps and back end systems in a range of languages including C#, ASP.NET MVC, WPF, JavaScript and HTML5. The team is a mix of front end Developers who've done some back end programming as well as server-side .NET Developers who know front end tech.

You will be comfortable with the development of complex, distributed, multi-tier applications. You'll work in a Test Driven Development environment and following Continuous Integration practice.

Importantly this company have a very low attrition rate within Development (less than 10% a year) - this is because they offer a structured career growth plan which recognises and rewards. They also offer a real breadth of projects and tech.

This type of company and the systems they develop are rarely found outside the Big Smoke so if you fancy working close to the countryside but getting the benefits of cutting edge work and remuneration this could be of interest to you.

Salary package is up to £75k including a lucrative benefits scheme.
