What makes our client’s Technical Consulting special? 

  • Our client gives a holistic development experience - you will have the opportunity to work the full lifecycle of a project from architecture, design, implementation, deployment and customer feedback.    
  • Diversity of the challenge – Front end, Back end, integrations, connections to social media and other services, security.  The degree of experience in a short time is unmatched in a typical developer’s job.
  • Know your customer – In few engineering jobs do you ever get to hear from the customer, much less meet them, see how they deploy and are impacted by the product.  
  • Work multiple projects at once.   While this is not for everyone, it’s a must for this position.  The successful consultant will thrive on working with 2-4 different projects at the same time, getting a range of experiences, personalities, lifecycle phases. 
  • Fast turns.  They deliver products to market in weeks and months, not years.   You’ll see your product through the entire lifecycle and multiple generations in production.   It’s not just agile, it’s the entire experience over a much shorter period than a conventional Developer job. 
  • Work for a company where the product really works, the customers love it, and it makes a huge and measurable difference.

Why join our client?

They offer the best of both worlds – the stability of an established 14-year-old company, with blue chip customers worldwide, and the growth trajectory of a startup, with 50% annual growth and a new round of funding to accelerate and create ever-changing opportunities.  Their employees don’t just follow a job description, they are part of creating it every day! 

Added to that, in the UK they offer the flexibility of working from home with office space available in London when needed. A large proportion of their work is carried out remotely but they are in constant contact online and hold regular get-togethers to ensure that the team stays connected.

If you have the relevant skills / experience and feel that this could be the opportunity for you, then please apply ASAP…
