Software Developer

Product development
Permanent

Summary: We’re looking for Developers who bring fresh ideas from all areas of the technology stack, such as distributed computing, microservices, system design, server-side, and UI. If you have a passion for technology and like to focus on specialist technically-orientated tasks, then White Clarke Group is the right fit for you.

Description of the role

Your days can be extremely varied from developing new features for the next release to working on defects for a product already in review by our client. We use Java with Spring and Hibernate for the server-side solution and Angular (among other things) on the client-side, typically you will work front to back and be exposed to both Java, JavaScript, database and tools such as Docker.

You will work closely with our Business Analysts and testers and be involved in client demonstrations and activities. We emphasise strong testing, test-driven development and behaviour-driven development practises to give us the confidence to iterate rapidly on a complex product, using tools like Cucumber.

We work in multi-disciplinary agile teams with a high level of collaboration.

As an experienced developer, you can become one of our subject matter experts in the technical and functional areas where we’re innovating, and have a chance to knowledge share and mentor the next generation of developers.

The learning will not stop there for you either; throughout the year, there will be various training enhancements and courses. Plus each member of staff receives a personalised career development plan, so you know what your route will be to make it to a senior developer. We also encourage an opinion in our working environment so if you think there is a technology that we need to investigate we want to hear it from you!
