About the company
Bulkhaul is a locally owned and operated logistics provider with an international presence. Established 40 years ago, Bulkhaul has offices in Europe, the Americas and the Far East with connections to any part of the globe, moving bulk product for some of the world's major manufacturers and distributors.
Our reputation as a trusted logistics partner is built on the quality of our Operations procedures and personnel, with key support from in-house IT development. The responsive and fast-moving nature of the business demands dynamic support from the IT Department and the timely deployment of robust business-focused solutions.
Bulkhaul operations are centrally controlled from the Middlesborough headquarters, with staff traditionally drawn from the local area. This has ensured a reliable workforce with long-term commitment to the company.
The IT Dept comprises a small but dedicated team able to apply themselves to a broad range of technologies. The business is supported with some off-the-shelf packages but its competitive advantage comes from in-house developments such as the ERP system and EDI connectivity. These applications are being continually developed and updated to meet changing requirements. Development work covers both maintenance and new solutions, direct contact with wider staff and responsibility all the way to deployment and feedback. We do not chain our staff to one particular function.
About the role
Candidates are required for both senior and junior development roles depending on aptitude and experience so far. In either case flexibility and a positive approach are essential. The senior developer will have the opportunity to define the direction of future IT Dept products and the nature of the company software environment.

*IT professional with extensive experience or graduate with relevant Diploma or Degree
*Extensive programming experience using Java and/or COBOL
*Familiarity with the wider Java ecosystem, Spring, OSGi, Linux
