Graduate Developer

WHAT'S THE ROLE

We’re not looking for an ordinary software developer. Holocentric wants a person that’s smart, keen, likes to get things done and is eager to learn about new technologies.

This role will involve extensive use of .NET and related Microsoft technologies, including Azure, as well as thin client and desktop applications. Above all, you’ll be applying Object-Oriented principles and work in an Agile manner.

Do you have a breadth of knowledge across-the-board and at least one deep area of expertise? If you are one of those naturally curious types that improve things, works on your own side projects and learns new skills that are not a necessarily part of your normal day job, then this role may be just for you. You enjoy sharing knowledge with team members, ask for help when needed, and at the end of the day have a passion for writing great code.

You’ll learn a range of technology as you work with our existing and emerging product frameworks. You will be expected to organise work, participate in design sessions, follow instructions, and work with others and at times on your own. With your help our business will continue to thrive so we can deliver even more amazing results to our customers.

In addition to writing code and testing it works, we developers provide a level of product support, help with technical issues and assist with troubleshooting. In essence, as well as making cool apps and technology, we continue to be responsible for what we’ve written and make sure it continues to operate.

 

Perks of the Job

Some of the perks for working in a small, dynamic company include: great culture, open offices, highly collaborative workplace, offsite company kick-off and planning sessions, weekly drinks and catch up, plus a real ability to help shape our product future. We also have a share option scheme, so you can participate in the success of the business.

We don’t believe in fixing people in rigid positions, but rather seek to match interest and capability. If you like a challenge, want to deliver exceptional results and seek to reach your potential we’d like to hear from you!
