Developer (mid-level) - Web Team 7 Digital Media Limited
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED 7digital are looking for smart, self-motivated software developers to join our truly exceptional development team. You may not have much (or any) working experience with TDD & Agile practices, but you want to work somewhere that passionately believes in them.
o You care about software, you have a passion for what you do which you can clearly convey by your actions rather than just waffly personal statements on your CV.
o For you it?s more than a job.
Experience otherwise is relative ? 2 years working in an agile/XP manner is worth much more to us than 5 in a traditional environment. If you?ve not got working experience with things like TDD and refactoring (maybe you?ve always wanted to but your current job doesn?t allow for it) show us you?re at least familiar with the concepts and that you really want to work in this kind of environment and you?re still in with a good chance.
Our teams are cross-functional, self-organising and highly autonomous. No architects, project managers or middle management, you?ll be working directly with our Product Managers and stakeholders in a highly collaborative manner. This approach requires a huge amount of teamwork and maturity and is not right for everyone, but we believe it?s the best way to create great software.
Among other things, Pair Programming, TDD/BDD, Refactoring, and Continuous Delivery are deeply embedded and we?re constantly striving to improve the way we work. We know typing is not the bottleneck, so among other things:
o Have around two sessions a week spending time doing things like Katas, Dojos and discussing practices and technologies.
o Each get up to two days ?innovation time? a month we can use to play with new toys or product ideas.
o Regularly attend conferences and community events, both as participants and contributors (we?ve recently ran sessions at QCon London 2012, Software Craftsmanship 2012 and SPA Conference 2012).
However, we?re not perfect and not afraid to say so. We recognise we have many problems which need solving and a long way to go on our journey of continuous improvement.
Technology we use
o ASP.Net MVC, OpenRasta, Nancy, ServiceStack, Nhibernate, Windsor, StructureMap, NUnit, RhinoMocks, ReSharper, NDepend
o Cucumber, Rails, RSpec, Rake, Capybara, Selenium, Watir
o REST, OAuth
o MS SQL, ElasticSearch, Solr
o Mono, Windows, IIS, Nginx
We?re also very keen on open source. We contribute to some of the technologies listed above as well as maintaining our own forks (+ publishing other things we?d like to share) on our GitHub account.
How to apply
If you?re interested, send an email with your CV and a cover note to email@example.com, ensuring that the subject field contains the following text: ?7digital: I am applying for Developer (mid-level)?.
Your cover note should include:
o Links to any account/s on GitHub/Google code etc.
o Any blogs & email groups you read or would recommend.
o Any communities & events you attend or are involved with.
o Any books you?ve read that stood out.
o Links to Twitter/LinkedIn/personal websites/blogs (because we?ll find them anyway so it saves us some time).
If we?re impressed by your CV and covering letter we?ll initially bring you in for a pair programming exercise (in C#, takes about 1 hour). If that goes well you?ll have one or two face-to-face interviews with some of our developers and the Head of Development.
