Job Description
The Team


You might think of us as one of the world’s largest accountancy firms. But there’s so much more to what we do. These days, our clients regularly call on us for all kinds of digital solutions. We are looking to transform the way that we offer tax services to our clients, with you at the forefront

As an integral member of our team, you’ll work with expert Business Analysts and subject matter experts to shape apps for everything from a client facing portal for sharing information to implementing complex algorithms to automate the assessment of tax. Thanks to our ambitious growth plans for the team, your future here is something to get excited about.

The Role

You will be leading a team of 2 senior developers and a test analyst across a variety of projects. You will be responsible both for the architecture and delivery of solutions. You’ll work alongside a Product Owner to help prioritise deliverables allowing you to focus on creating world-class solutions.

You will also be asked to assess the viability of cutting edge cognitive activities to integrate with our solutions. You will be supported in developing your knowledge in these areas both with internal experts and by attending external events.

Finally, whilst there is no expectation of existing knowledge of tax, we would expect in time you to develop a degree of domain knowledge. You would be required to interact with your technical counterparts at HMRC as the government implements its own technical transformation strategy.

Our technology

Our core competency is the .NET development stack (C#, WebApi) and Azure cloud services (Azure Service Bus, Azure Service Fabric). We pride ourselves on delivering highly modular, testable, scalable, SOLID code with continuous integration and deployment to cloud environments. We follow agile methodologies and a Git workflow.

We welcome developers with experience in other environments (AWS, Google Cloud Platform) who are happy to bring their experiences on board. As part of our rigorous recruitment process, we’ll thoroughly test your ability to code and design scalable systems with peerless precision, quality and clarity.

As a member of the team, you’ll be expected to keep up to date with the tech field. We gladly sponsor certifications and training courses.
