We're hiring

Lead Developer

£40-50k (DOE) + benefits

About the Role

As a result of continued growth we are looking for a C# .Net Software Developer, to lead the design and development of bespoke software solutions for our growing base of national and international clients. A passion for actively demonstrating and promoting Waterstons’ culture and values is also key to enable our vision and strategy to be realised.

The role will be based out of our Durham office, although flexible working is available, and some travel to and work from clients’ sites may be required.

About You

You’ll have demonstrable industry experience in a similar role or be ready to take the next step in your career. With a passion for continuous improvement, you will be proactive, self starter and have the confidence to lead on decision making.

We are looking for the right person so your passion for technology and problem solving is just as important as technical skills and knowledge.

Working within the Application and Integration team, a part of the wider Bespoke Software Development department, you’ll be responsible for delivering projects that provide true business value for our clients. You’ll predominantly use the .NET stack, but experience in SQL, the Azure platform and JavaScript front end frameworks would also be useful. Any mentoring or team leader experience is useful but not essential.

As well as keeping up to date with emerging technologies and the latest developments, you will also be able to engage, support and mentor more junior team members as part of project delivery teams and share your own knowledge and actively help develop colleagues’ knowledge.

You’ll also assist with continual innovation and technical direction of the department as well as leading technical customer activities such as creating and reviewing proposals, providing consultancy and requirements gathering as well as creating bespoke solutions.

About us; we’re different

We’re a business and IT consultancy, on a mission to help our customers build a better business. Headquartered in Durham, with offices in London and Glasgow we’re passionate about working in partnership with our customers to provide them with unique business solutions, service and support that directly adds value to their business.

Continuous personal and professional development are important to us, so you will be supported, guided and mentored every step of the way. You’ll not only continually develop and learn new skills, but will guide and mentor others too.

Our culture and values are super important to us and they inform and influence everything we do. Our ‘people first’ ethos means that we look after both our customers and our own people – who are empowered to make their own decisions, but are always supported. We don’t measure time, we measure achievements; that’s why we’ve been awarded Gold Investors in People for a fourth consecutive time.

The perks

As well as offering a competitive salary, we also have an attractive benefits package allowing you a great work-life balance and the opportunity to really develop your knowledge and skills, which includes:

  • Competitive salary
  • Flexible working hours
  • Unlimited holiday allowance
  • Company profit share scheme
  • Private medical insurance
  • Opportunity to develop professional skills
  • Support to gain industry standard qualifications
  • Free parking at our Glasgow and Durham offices
  • Season ticket travel loan

And more…

This is an exciting opportunity to join a leading IT and business consultancy firm, with an amazing people-focused culture and ambitious growth plans.

Our recruitment process

We'll be in touch to let you know whether we'd like to progress your application. Initially we arrange a telephone conversation and if we seem like a great fit for each other we'll ask you to come in for a face to face discussion with our hiring team.
