You will determine the correct architecture, technologies and implementation for the new framework, already having a strong idea of the optimal migration path for existing clients. This will all be undertaken at the same time as helping to best support our existing projects.

  • A great set of soft skills: 
    Desire, passion, drive, willingness, time-management, team player, patience, commercial awareness, pride

plus ideally you'll have:

  • Plenty of unit testing experience
  • To be familiar with JIRA software
