We are growing, and in need of finding our next software developer. We’ve posted a job description on LinkedIn and University of Sussex today. You can apply here as well – here are the details…

What we do

We are currently a team of 3 (with an additional freelance developer at busy times) and we are continuing to grow our team.

We make custom software for businesses that haven’t found what they are looking for

off-the-shelf; using a system called Claris FileMaker. We identify areas of their admin processes that we can automate, improving the staff’s workflow and saving them time and money.

What you will do

You will help our current developers to assist our clients with bug fixes and trouble shooting their systems.

Customer service is key. We don’t want anyone to have to wait for fixes, so you will have a reassuring email manner, while you do the problem solving.

As your confidence grows, we will be training you to fix regular problems and small issues yourself, and eventually to design your own systems for clients from initial conversation to proposal and development.

No Experience Necessary

We are very happy to hear from someone who hasn’t done this sort of thing before but has a ‘maths brain’ who also loves to problem solve. You could be straight out of education, looking for a career change, or simply looking for a challenging new career

We will train you fully and once you are ready, we will pay for your FileMaker Accreditation, so you can work towards becoming our next Senior developer.

If you are the sort of person who likes to take projects and run with them and enjoys a bit of responsibility, then we’d like to hear from you.

Oh, and if you’re a Mac person then you’ll fit right in.

Why should you work with us

Our office 

We are in a shared resident office in Projects, The Lanes, Brighton.

Projects is designed specifically with connection and collaboration at its heart. It has step-free access and plenty of room for wheelchair access to desks

With weekly Rooftop networking in the rooftop bar, Yoga and a varied event calendar included as an added bonus.

Holidays

28 days (inclusive of Bank Holidays) and we also give you your birthday off, paid, each year.

Hours to suit

32 – 40 hours a week (pro-rata) because we understand that life gets in the way of committing to 8 hours every day. We will discuss the best option for you.

Flexible Home / Office

Once you are trained, then working from home up to 3 days a week is totally fine

We provide you with your own MacBook and make sure your home office has all the right kit

Salary

£ 22,700 – £ 26,000 per annum (based on 40 hours per week) depending on experience

Opt-in pension scheme
