.Net Developer (VB.Net, ASP.Net)

— Flexible working, monthly socials

Location:
Milton Keynes
Type:
Salary:
£30K - £40K
  • World-leading sales/marketing application.
  • Flexi-time, great benefits and scope to integrate emerging technology into the business.
  • Collaborative culture, modern offices with Ping-Pong & Pool Tables and a Nintendo Switch!
Im helping a sales & marketing software company to find a .Net Developer to join their modern offices in Milton Keynes. The business offer two products, the first being a World-leading sales/order-taking application which integrates with a business ERP system to ensure up-to-date information and stock availability. They also offer a cloud-based solution which is effectively an online shopping cart that shares the same interface and data to your ERP system. Because the server-side market is slowly decreasing, the business are now focusing on modernising their legacy code and developing new functionalities for their cloud-based products, which is where this role will play an integral part.
 
What skills youll need
 
  • Proven background in VB.Net & API development using Visual Studio.
  • An understanding of C#.Net and proven experience in migrating legacy VB.Net code over to C#.
  • Great understanding of cloud technology, preferably AWS though this can be flexible.
  • Knowledge of MS SQL Server (functions, stored procedures).
  • Understanding of HTML, CSS & JavaScript would be great, though this role is more back-end focused.
  • Background in an Agile environment. 
What youll be doing
 
Sitting in a collaborative team of 6 and reporting into the Development Director, your main focus will be centred on maintaining (and modernising) the business existing legacy code and creating new functionalities for their cloud-based products. Most of the initial development will be written in VB.Net in order to connect the API to others within the cloud, with a longer term aim to bring all legacy systems up to date. The next big project due to kick off is creating cloud-based API connections to various ERP systems of the companys major clients, and this role will play a big part in that process. The developers here are very autonomous and you will find that technical specifications are mostly quite loose with scope to change throughout. 
 
What youll get in return for your experience
 
The offices here are actually quite incredible. With ping-pong tables, pool tables and even a Nintendo Switch, its definitely unlike your typical corporate office environment! As a small-medium sized company (about 20 people) they go on various socials on a monthly basis, most recently paintballing but not always quite as active! Theres a generous contributory pension scheme, private healthcare & healthcare allowance, flexible working, AA cover and various shopping discounts. All in all, a really rewarding company to work for and a very collaborative yet autonomous team to be a part of!
