VB.net / C# Developer

Job Overview

VB.net / C# Developer

Our client is looking for a VB.net/C# developer to join their relaxed, sometimes jovial and always friendly office.
Ideally, due to some legacy systems still being in operation they are looking for someone who is also capable of reading and doing small bug fixes to VB6 and VBA.
The well-established team consists of 6 developers; sometimes it can be quiet when everyone is working, but that is no bad thing as most of the work demands concentration.  They operate a relaxed dress code, so no need for suits and shirts (although they would like staff to be clothed! PJs would not be appropriate!)
As a .Net developer, you will be responsible for working closely with clients to deliver new bespoke systems as well as ad hoc customisation and new functionality to existing systems.
The ability to work in a high-pressured environment for demanding clients through development, testing and delivery is critical to success in this role. The ideal candidate will have strong communication skills, the ability to multi-task, be dedicated to detail and quality and foster a positive, open work environment.
The company provides bespoke software and the existing clients, some of whom are billing in excess of £50 million a year, are vital to the company so the importance of these projects is very high.  Newer solutions are also very high on the list as they are the offerings attracting new clients.  So, there are no real ‘throw away’ projects, each project will have a high-value to the company and, as such, sometimes come with a little pressure and are time critical.
The offices are based just outside the city wall in Canterbury and there is free parking available (which is also available for use at the weekend for your benefit).
