  • Work on an EdTech product supporting millions of parents across the country.
  • Supported learning and regular knowledge sharing & professional development sessions.
  • Hybrid model with a mature approach to flexible working.

An EdTech company with an industry-leading product is looking for a Senior Developer to join them in Coventry as they scale throughout 2022. Over the last 20 years the company have been on a mission to champion progress and innovation in schools, bridging the communication gap between schools, students and parents. They’ve shaken up the industry and are proud to be a partner to thousands of schools across the UK, helping to streamline their operations and improve engagement with parents.

What experience you’ll need

  • Proven background in C#.Net (they use. Net4.5+ and .Net Core). 
  • Full-Stack skills but with a tendency towards the server-side. 
  • Well-versed in HTML, CSS, JavaScript/jQuery. A modern library like Angular/React would be ideal. 
  • Skilled in WebAPI / WebServices / WebForms. 
  • Comfortable navigating SQL Server and SQL databases.
  • Knowledge of Visual Studio & ReSharper or similar. 
  • Cloud-based development expertise, preferably Azure. 
  • Ability to undertake unit & integration tests would be useful. 
  • Happy working Agile with regular sprints. 
  • Any knowledge of TeamCity or similar for CI would be desirable. 

What you’ll be doing

Joining a Scrum team of 6-8 Developers/Testers and alongside other BA’s and Designers, you’ll be involved in end-to-end project work with a nice spread of legacy product development and brand-new systems. The role is full-stack but heavily server-side focused with 80% of your time spent on back-end code, but also covering front-end UIs and API development. A lot of the newer projects focus on event-based messaging systems and they’re keen to build a TDD approach across the team so any knowledge/experience here would be very useful. You’ll enjoy learning new skills and taking time out to focus on professional development, as well as mentoring juniors to upskill in any areas they’re perhaps not as confident. 

What you’ll get in return for your talents

You’ll receive 25 days holiday plus bank hols, a company matched pension scheme, life assurance, option to join their private health scheme, flexible hours and more. The company offer hybrid working and are open to a conversation around what this looks like, but ideally you’ll spend around 1/2 days a week in the office. The company take a proactive and ongoing approach to learning, with regular knowledge sharing sessions and access to online training like PluralSight. It’s a friendly, collaborative culture and you’ll be at the forefront of innovation within the EdTech space.
