Our particular focus is on the Digital Workplace and we help our clients ensure that the experience of being in the workplace is the best it can be.

Your part in it:
The successful applicant will work within our "Custom Products" squad, working within a multi-disciplinary team to develop advanced Workplace Experience Solutions, primarily (but not exclusively) working on front-end user interfaces especially in the form of native iOS and Android apps using Flutter, kiosk interfaces, and some web interfaces. This is an opportunity to work with some interesting technologies - Indoor Positioning and Wayfinding, integrations with our Digital Twin and IOT platform, Content Management tooling, chat bots and voice interfaces, Augmented Reality, and many others. All of our software solutions are oriented around the Internet-of-Things, particularly focused within the Facilities Management sector and opportunities in the Digital Workplace.
We are looking for candidates that have strong skills in mobile app development - although our primary development stack is based around Flutter, experience of native iOS and/or Android development would be beneficial.

Strong academic background, including good A-levels or equivalent and a preferably a numerate degree from a leading University.
2+ years experience of developing and testing front-end user interfaces primarily using mobile app development tools.

Good understanding of test driven development and experience of writing automated UI tests
Good understanding of application programming interfaces (APIs) to support mobile functionality.
Able to discuss the client's requirements and the proposed solution with colleagues, and able to attend and contribute to design and implementation discussions with the squad and the client, including meetings with the client on-site.
Personal Qualities required:
Strong self-organisational skills and the ability to work to tight deadlines without constant supervision.
Drive to keep up to date with developments and trends in the tech and modern media world.
The ability to learn quickly.
The ability to interpret and follow technical plans.
Strong communication skills.
What you can expect in return:
A great opportunity to experience what it takes to scale a thriving software engineering business focused around innovative product development.
A friendly, encouraging and motivating environment with a team who works hard but knows how to have fun.
