Job Overview

VB6 / VBA Developer
Canterbury

Up to £35k
VR/02527R
Our client is looking for an experienced VB6 / VBA developer who would be interested in a role where they have the opportunity to support Legacy systems, but who is also interested in moving their skills forward into more recent technologies.
The VB6 / VBA developer would typically be involved in: Emails and answering queries, alerts, etc., contact with customers on the phone, working through a work-list and taking direction from lead developers.  As you get to grips with the projects and as the company pushes on with MVC, you will not only be providing details to other developers, but will also get your hands dirty with C#.
The VB6 / VBA developer will get exposure to other technologies as well making the role very interesting.
In this always friendly office and within the well-established team 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.  There is a relaxed dress code, so no need for suits and shirts (though they would like staff to be clothed, PJs would not be appropriate!)
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.  The newer solutions are also very high-up on that list, as they are new 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.

Responsibilities:

· Effectively analyse technical requirements
· Participate in project planning
