Our Special Projects Team are looking for a highly motivated full stack software engineer with a wide range of technologies and frameworks, and a focus on architecture and continuous deployment to join our existing dynamic team.

We have a commitment to ongoing Agile process refinement within the team, with each team member encouraged to contribute to where we can improve, allowing a simpler working environment and clearer ways of communicating with our clients. As an SPD software engineer a lot of time is dedicated to solution discovery with clients, using current knowledge and research to optimise any solution based on client capability and resource. This can be for greenfield projects or supporting legacy systems and can range from discovery through proof of concept, minimum viable product and full solutions.

Responsibilities can include leading technical workshops with clients, both pre and post sales, learning new technologies, developing a bespoke software approach based on client needs, ongoing feedback and interaction with the client and creation and implementation of an end to end development solution for a client. Emphasis in SPD is placed on the ability to understand multiple projects that will be ongoing at any point, and the ability to switch between projects during a development cycle is important. Ongoing support for clients is during work hours, but there is the occasional need to support production systems out of hours (this is very rare).

As a software engineer in SPD you would be working in project areas including the following:

  • Environmental impact assessment
  • Mining
  • Event management
  • Hotel bookings
  • Automotive servicing and sales
  • Education

Most of us live in beautiful Cornwall and our offices are less than 5 miles from the beach. While we love Cornwall and can’t imagine not living here, we know a lot of people are happy elsewhere. We expect everyone to come to our office occasionally, maybe once or twice a quarter, and there are some client visits necessary but apart from that we are happy for our team to be based anywhere in the UK. If you are lucky enough to be based in Cornwall, our new offices are set-up for you to work here if you would prefer though.

SPD work on a wide range of technologies, and exposure to the below is preferable however not a necessity. We are looking for individuals who have the aptitude and willingness to explore the technology required for the clients project, but still encourage the development of technical specialism. There is emphasis placed on support from team members where there are knowledge gaps.

Due to our timescales you must be eligible to work in the UK, or in the UK with a visa which we can takeover if necessary.

We recruit on a rolling basis and fill our vacancies as soon as we find people who fit our culture and meet the skills requirements. This means that whilst we have a closing date on all of our roles, we may offer the role to someone before the end date, so we recommend that you apply as soon as possible.

No recruitment agencies please.
