Job description

Senior Application Engineer (C# / SQL)

Location: Birmingham / Hybrid
Salary: £50,000 - £60,000


Want to work for an organisation that actually listens to their staff, offers lots of progression, Greenfield projects, and also the opportunity to shape the future of how you work with tech, work with Azure DevOps, CI/Pipelines etc, and also get the chance to progress into a Software Architect / Team Lead? If so, then please carry on reading.

This growing organisation has 28 offices in the UK, and plan to grow another 10 by the end of 2023, so trust me when I say there is lots and lots of opportunity to learn new skills, do cross-over project work, or move into different teams, so they are looking for a new Senior Software Engineer (SQL, C# and API) to join their current team of 12, as they continue to grow.

You will also have the opportunity to work or learn Azure DevOps, as they continue to progress and work on various exciting Greenfield projects. The next step with progression for this role really depends on what route and direction you would like to take, so if you have aspirations to stay a Senior, become a Lead, change teams, or become a Software Architect, then they have a genuine progression road map that makes this all achievable, with lots of current and previous success stories of others in the team that have achieved this.
