It’s a whisky business choosing your next prison…erm…company, I meant company.
They throw around words like ‘autonomy’, ‘freedom’ and ‘independence’ like confetti, but when the work starts, you quickly realise the words are as hollow as an empty barrel.
So where better to seek honesty than a disruptive alcoholic drinks group that sticks two fingers up to silly policies, internal politics and the corporate hamster wheel?
A company ONLY hiring .NET developers who want to take ownership of a product from beginning to end and are comfortable being at the very centre of things.
You’ll join a 40-person tech team where your work matters, your ideas make a difference, and you’ll see the fruit of your decisions quickly with multiple daily deployments to over 22 million users annually.
There are two tech stacks: an older Web Forms e-commerce platform and a more modern microservices framework built on RabbitMQ called Nucleus.
They’re constantly modernising, but you need to be pragmatic enough to know you’ll evolve existing legacy systems and build new things in the more modern environment.
You’ll talk to stakeholders, see things from a business and user perspective and work with product managers and architects to build out the requirements and technical design.
Coding is part of the job, but you’ll touch on day-to-day delivery, project management, dealing with non-technical problems, and being responsible for the quality/success of the new features.
This role isn’t for you if you just want to code and don’t like wearing so many hats. Still, if you take ownership and have the skills to do that well, the rewards can be massive, as the company isn’t scared of rapidly progressing salaries above the very top of the market for people like you.
Salary aside, it’s an inclusive company that cares more about the outcomes than clock-watching, and you’ll enjoy true flexibility, including unlimited holidays and remote working.
You’re a backend .NET developer, ideally with experience working on e-commerce platforms.
We’re looking for the best developers, not just those with loads of experience or high current salaries; you could have five years of experience but embody that multi-skilled owner profile.
If you want an anti-corporate working environment unrestrained by politics and don’t mind a little chaos in pursuing the best quality work of your life, this could be the place for you, but if you have only worked for massive corporate businesses, this probably won’t suit you.
