We are actively recruiting for a .Net Developer to join a fast-moving Agile development team, working on building a document management system and related software. The existing multi-discipline team is made up of 4 people from Headforwards and 5 from the client. Our software was a greenfield project started by us in 2019 which we developed from scratch in C# and React. The system runs in Kubernetes allowing us to deploy both on premises and in the cloud.

Why work for Headforwards?

We are agile with a very laid back feel, a relatively flat structure and small self-organising teams of 2-7 people. At Headforwards, our culture and environment is dedicated to making people happy at work. We have lots of social activities and monthly learning sessions, talks and cross company communities of practice for various languages, tools and frameworks. This is a place where you can make a difference, work in a small team but benefit from the support of a larger community of developers and like-minded people.

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, but apart from that we are happy for you to be based anywhere in the UK. If you are lucky enough to be based in Cornwall, or would like to relocate to this beautiful part of the country, our new offices are set-up for you to work here if you would prefer.

In return for your hard work and experience, we will offer you:

  • Medical cash back scheme
  • Additional paid maternity/ paternity/ parental leave
  • Fun regular social events (beach BBQs, film screenings and more)
  • End of summer company festival – Headstock
  • Headtalks – internal technical conference
  • Corporate gym membership rates as selected local gyms
  • Discounts at selected local restaurants/ cafes
  • Car leasing scheme
  • Tech scheme
  • Most of us are based near our office in Cornwall, however we are able to offer hybrid/remote working

Essential experience and skill requirements:

  • Experience building .NET Core applications in C#
  • JavaScript ES7
  • React & Redux
  • Entity Framework Core & Microsoft SQL Server
  • Dependency Injection & aspect oriented programming (Autofac)
  • Knowledge of Agile development methods and practices

Desirable experience:

  • Experience with Docker & Kubernetes
  • Experience developing with and using Elasticsearch
  • Experience of Message queues such as RabbitMQ
  • Experience with Object stores like Minio
  • Previous experience with CI/CD pipelines in Azure Devops or similar

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.

Don’t miss out!

The closing date for this role is Friday 17th December 2021. 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.
