  • Creating associated API documentation and working in partnership with developers consuming your APIs and services
  • Working as part of a cross-functional scrum team and contributing your expertise to drive the overall success of a project
  • Being an advocate for engineering best practices across your project team
  • Mentoring and sharing your knowledge with team members


We'd love to talk to you if:

  • Strong knowledge of API development using C# .NET/.NET Core, including ORM and dependency injection experience
  • Experience of working with other languages and associated frameworks / libraries such as JavaScript, HTML and CSS
  • Development experience with the MVC pattern
  • Enthusiastic and experienced when it comes to using engineering best practices, clean code, and unit testing
  • Experience working as part of a cross-functional development team (using Agile practices)
  • Cloud experience using AWS is essential
  • Experience and familiarity with modern database technologies
