Employer description: 
Rapid feedback is essential to how we deliver high quality software at Codeweavers. We deploy small, incremental changes to production hundreds of times a day. We are proud of our engineering culture; continuous improvement and learning is at our core. 
We are passionate about pushing the boundaries of our industry embracing change whenever it is needed. 

The back-end application team is responsible for building all things server side. We split ourselves across the business working in mixed discipline delivery squads. These squads work with the rest of the business to help shape their product roadmaps.

It is an exciting time at Codeweavers - our automotive commerce SaaS platform powers thousands of digital solutions in the UK and we are now taking it globally.

We are looking for a passionate and highly motivated web service engineer to join the team. 
You will work closely with your product delivery squad to build robust, well-engineered solutions. 

Although you will spend most of the time with your squad, the front-end application team works closely to push our engineering practices and architecture forward. Software craft and learning is a big part of being a Codeweavers developer.

Salary: £18,500 per annum.

On a day-to-day basis, your responsibilities will be:

  • Working closely with the product owners, account manager and end users to translate business problems into platform solutions.

  • Working with your delivery team to implement well engineered solutions from your delivery squad's roadmap.

  • Breaking work down into small deliverables that can be rapidly released.

  • Collaborating with the rest of the team to drive our standards, solutions, and practices forward.

What we are looking for: 
Technical skills:

  • Writing maintainable and performant C# code 

  • Interact with relational and NoSQL databases 

  • Use RabbitMQ and AWS SQS/SNS for message queues/event processing 

  • Designing well thought out web API's 

  • Use of a CI / CD pipeline to build and deploy new functionality safely and effectively 

We would love if you: 

  • Have some experience with C# or Java 

  • Have some experience using version control and writing automated tests 

  • Have an awareness of extreme programming development methodologies 

Entry requirements:

  • The learner must have completed a Level 3 Software Development Apprenticeship with QA or have an equivalent qualification with another training provider

  • OR an A-level in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) subject and a successful completion of our aptitude test

  • OR a BTEC Diploma in IT and a successful completion of our aptitude test

  • OR 2 years’ experience in a relevant role and successful completion of our aptitude test

You may also have a combination of qualifications and experience which demonstrate the minimum foundation needed for the programme. In this instance you could still be considered for the programme.

If you hold international equivalents of the above qualifications, at the time of your application you must be able to provide an official document that states how your international qualifications compare to the UK qualifications.

  • 25 days holiday plus bank holidays + 1 for each year of service
