C# Developer x 2 - Edtech

Microsoft Stack Developer

Ref: 596Tuesday 1 September 2020


Covid has changed the world forever and has transformed this organisation in a positive way.  Before the pandemic, they were growing steadily but they have seen rapid growth and investment as their products facilitate remote teaching and learning. 


Now seen as a worldwide innovator, their applications are cross-platform, highly complex and flexible but can also be deployed rapidly, ensuring governments, schools and academies can roll out the tech quickly and continue to teach.  After an initial deluge of new client onboarding, they are now in a position to refocus their efforts on innovation by building new features and functionality, including MS Team integration, in to a new iteration of desktop and mobile applications. This includes refining both the user interface but also the back end architecture and functionality, specifically around Azure / DevOps.


Already sponsored by Microsoft as a high growth business, this is an incredible time to join a top tech company that can offer Developers and exciting career and a step up into a role working amongst an incredibly committed team that are making a real difference. 


So what’s it all about? 


Back end is built using asp.net c# .net core,  front end built using javascript and jquery, with a new front end push using Angular. Mobile is Xamarin. There are various Azure functions (c#) but much more can be made to provide amazing functionality. Additional technology includes: Cosmos DB, Azure Tables, Azure Blob, Azure Queues, Azure SQL, WebSockets, WebRTC, OAUTH2


Future Tech: Machine Learning, Big Data Analysis/reports, Image Analysis, Online Store, Computer Asset Management and reporting


What are we looking for? 


We are looking for someone who gets excited about making a difference by building a product that will revolutionise teaching and learning. An individual who is interested in product development, not just the code!  Our ideal candidate will have at least 3 years software development experience using C#, MVC and Angular. A midweight looking for more responsibility to lead projects and potentially other Developers in the near future, or alternatively be given the chance to access and utilise the latest technology coming out of Microsoft. 


Developers have the opportunity and flexibility to take on a project that interests them, where they can new skills and assess emerging technologies. They are still ‘early stage’, despite the rapid growth so there is also an opportunity to contribute to implementing sound development methodologies and processes and adding value more broadly across the operation. 


If you want to work on a product with heart and soul, that is transformationa, l with a team of lovely, genuine people please contact me. Role comes with homeworking, salary to 45k and is situated in West Bridgeford, Nottingham. There are two roles, a mid to high asp.net c# MVC/Angular dev to help with the portal and another much more focused on the desktop apps with vb/c# .net ideally with .net core experience.
