Our client makes the world's most widely used software for web security testing.
It is an independent private company with no venture capitalists or other outside investors.
They are a UK success story, with over 10,000 customers in 130 countries, and over a decade of strong organic growth, all from their offices in Knutsford, Cheshire. Recognised
in industry awards: Sunday Times Tech Track and Export Track, UK Private Business Awards finalist.
They are looking for exceptional .NET Developers to join their team.
Our near-term roadmap
They are currently working on a range of greenfield functionality, including a replacement for our existing support centre, and a new educational site for learning about web security including interactive vulnerability labs.
They are in the process of modernizing our development tool chain and production infrastructure to fully embrace today's cloud capabilities. Their new infrastructure makes use of various AWS services, including Fargate, Lambda, ELB, Aurora, CloudFront, and Quicksight.
You must be exceptional
Let's be honest. Most software development teams are composed of one or two stars, a few competent players, and a bulk of warm bodies who make up the numbers. Our client is different. They only recruit people who, in any other team, would be right at the top of the ability pyramid.
Many of their developers hold PhDs or First Class degrees from top universities. They were the cleverest kid in their class at school. Outside of work, they are the smartest person in the room.
What will you be doing?
Work in a small, cross-functional team on various web services supporting our business. Areas of functionality include handling orders, licensing, management of software releases, financial reporting, and the CMS hosting our blog and the Daily Swig.
Practice full-blooded Agile, with pair programming, TDD, obsession with quality, rapid release cycles, and frequent team retrospectives.
Learn from and share your knowledge with a close-knit group of high-performing individuals.
Get to grips with the very latest web security threats and how to mitigate them, ensuring that our own security posture is as strong as possible.
What are we looking for?
Being clever is only the start. What makes us successful is the way our people work together. We routinely program in pairs, stand around a whiteboard puzzling over a problem, and liaise with our in-house researchers to understand the latest security threats.
You must thrive on being surrounded by other exceptional people. You'll know there is always more than one perspective on any problem, be willing to have your thinking challenged, and help work towards a consensus. There are no defensive prima donnas here. Since you're no longer the smartest person in the room, it's your emotional intelligence that will let you succeed.
Our tooling includes Jetbrains Rider, xUnit, git, NuGet, TeamCity, Docker, and various AWS services. Prior experience of these would be beneficial but is not essential.
We hire people with 20+ years of experience, and straight out of university, and everything in between.
8% employer pension contribution.
Life assurance: 4x salary.
Income protection: full pay for first 6 months of incapacity followed by 75% of salary plus pension contribution.
Private medical insurance (Bupa).
25 days plus public holidays.
