Application Developer/Front End


Village employs a range of developers, the more great people who want to be part of things the better, from new graduates to experienced senior developers. Developers work on a range of full stack development, normally this involves a database, a C# application layer and a web front end written with Angular. But there are a range of applications with variants on this technology. This role focusses on someone with a particular interest in the front end work.

We recruit for long term team members so are looking for potential rather than a particular technology expertise. Although we also have some freelancers involved in projects.

We are looking for people who share our values

Curiosity and Sharp Thinking – We enjoy thinking through problems, designing solutions, and helping to build the understanding and insights our clients need.

Collaboration and Partnership - We enjoy working closely and collaboratively with our technical colleagues, clients and suppliers – combining our collective knowledge and skills to build exceptional solutions.

Expertise and Knowledge – Village Software is for people who are enthusiastic and excited about learning and becoming a craftsperson with technology. Programming is fun and we are constantly striving to improve, both individually and collectively.

Integrity and Passion – Integrity and passion is in our DNA. We work on complex projects involving multiple stakeholders, bringing clear thinking, professionalism, energy, and passion to everything to do.

Currently we run two small application development teams, and one business intelligence team.

 

Front End Developer

We are looking to balance our team by engaging a developer with a particular interest and talent for front end development based on web technologies. We use Angular as our normal front end tool, but demonstrable expertise in similar libraries would show an interest in this area of development.

  • The front end will usually depend on a range of browser technologies including Javascript, TypeScript, HTML, CSS, we focus on Angular.
  • Familiarity with UX for user interface design.
  • The back end will be written in C# with good programming practice expected. Some familiarity will be an advantage

 Skills

  • Competence with Angular or another similar web framework.
  • JavaScript, CSS and related technical skills.
  • Developers need to have communication skills suitable for holding discussions with technical professionals about how to implement solutions.

Other Skills

In addition to the core coding and software design skills we are involved in a range of other software engineering skills including, qa, testing, ux-design, business analysis etc. We know that experienced developers have some capabilities in some or all these fields and we would look to find space for these to be developed and used.

Software Engineering Practice

We aspire to produce high quality code, if you find object-oriented analysis, design patterns, unit testing strategies, refactoring rewarding then you should fit in with where the company is going.
