Career Opportunities – Experienced Software Developer (UK)

Bracknell

Are you a strong graduate software developer with 2 to 5 years experience and held back in your current role?
Are you looking for a significant software development challenge with real career acceleration?
Do you want rewards that match what you deliver?
If the answer to these questions is YES, then we would like to hear from you.

OnTheMove is a software product, built using the latest technology, that allows organisations to deploy enterprise applications to mobile devices with a genuine mobile first UI. Our customers have been extremely successful with the product and we believe it has a great future in an expanding range of sub-markets.

Because our products are, in essence, a toolkit from which our customers create a final configuration to deploy to users, we need the very best developers who have the intellectual rigour to think through all the ways what they are coding might be used and have the determination to build solutions that will be robust in all circumstances.

After a short induction period, you will be working on core product code to address real customer requirements. The work typically involves:

  • building high quality solutions following good design principles, with minimal supervision. At this level, the features you will be working on will often be large and complex
  • contributing to overall product design decisions / discussions about best practices
  • developing test cases
  • supporting our customers and internal consultants in their use of the product – typically identifying the root cause of reported problems
  • assisting in mentoring more junior team members

We anticipate that there will also be the chance to work on customer implementation projects, configuring OnTheMove to the needs of particular organisations, and the configuration / support of vertical application products built in our core technology.

For the right person, there will be the opportunity to rapidly advance into areas such as product ownership, team leadership and more customer interaction.

The Rewards

We aim to recruit the very best people and the salary packages that we offer reflect this.

Your starting salary will depend on your experience but the probable package will be in the area of £55,000 to £78,000 comprising:

  • a basic salary of £50,000 to £65,000
  • a contribution of up to 5% of basic salary on a matching basis into your own personal pension scheme
  • an on target bonus of £5,000 to £10,000 depending on company objectives

Your salary will be reviewed after 6 months and, depending on progress, there is room for significant and rapid growth of your package.
