Here at Iceland we're different. We care. We're not a dull stuffy corporate. We're one big team. A diverse group of people who get stuck in and work together. We are looking for an Application Support Manager who is looking for the next step in their career to join our .NET Application Services team.

You will work closely with the Application Services Manager to ensure the stability and further improve our extensive suite of applications that underpin many of the operational processes that contribute to Iceland's success. As the team leader, you will be responsible for the management of day-to-day tasks, promoting the highest standards of support and delivering high impact application changes to our fast-paced business.

As a team working in an Agile SCRUM Methodology, you should possess excellent communication skills and be comfortable working closely with Business Analysts, Quality Assurance and other members of the Development team to deliver quality software collaboratively. Flexibility is essential, as is the ability to adapt with the business' changing needs. You should work well under pressure, displaying evidence of excellent problem solving and organisational skills.

Iceland's product specification, HR and scheduling, supplier finance and product forecasting systems are just a few of the in-house .NET applications that you will be working with. Our newer and in development applications are built using .NET core, utilising some of the latest technology in Azure such as serverless functions, logic apps and cognitive services, all of which will be under your remit. There are also more legacy applications using older versions of the .NET framework with MVC, ADO.NET and utilising stored procedures, so a broad knowledge of current and past technologies is essential.

What you'll need to bring:

  • Strong experience with Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5+ using C# and MVC
  • Strong experience with web development technologies such as Javascript, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap and JQuery
  • Strong experience with Microsoft SQL Server databases, T-SQL and ORM Frameworks (Entity Framework)
  • Experience of working with source control (TFS/GIT)
  • Excellent problem-solving, communication and organisation skills
  • Ability to work autonomously and pro-actively
  • Be passionate about software development, working with the team, a positive influence and a cup half full mentality

 Meeting any of the below criteria will be highly beneficial:

  • Previous team management experience
  • Experience of working with cloud infrastructure (Azure/AWS)
  • Experience of developing/architecting enterprise solutions
  • Experience with unit testing
  • Experience of working in an Agile environment
  • Experience with infrastructure as code (Terraform)

Make a difference to your career at Iceland, we expect a lot but you'll get a lot back in return. We will help you to grow and develop your career and give you the freedom to show that you really care. 

Our benefits package includes: 

  • A very competitive salary with an excellent benefits package
  • 25 days holiday, plus 8 days bank holiday
  • Flexible working
  • 10% store discount, 30% discount with Club Individual Restaurant Group
