Whether its endlessley scouring the job boards, trying to avoid copycat adverts and lists of requirements that ask for unicorns that don't exist, or being subjected to badly written sales pitches on a daily basis, it is becoming clear that the main struggle for job-seekers is finding content that does one crucial thing...
Explain what the role actually is.
So with that in mind, I have crafted a short and sweet job ad that hopefully gives you some flavour as to what this company are doing and what the role will look like...
I am partnering with a Global Software House and ISV based in Newcastle upon Tyne who are keen to hire an experienced Senior Software Engineer, ideally with a background building applications with the Microsoft technologies stack and with strong commercial accumen.
They are a product-driven organisation, working with a range of blue chip customers and providing SaaS-based solutions to help commercial organisations maximise their revenue in a cost-effective manner.
They recently launched that software to the market and are currently in the midst of a huge greenfield/R&D phase, focusing on the utilisation of emerging technologies to develop a number of new products to add to their ever-expanding suite.
This role will be primarily hands on with the core focus of the role being application development using the core Microsoft .NET stack (.NET Core, C#, ASP.NET MVC, SQL) as well as cloud-based technologies (Azure, AWS) and front end/UI frameworks (Angular2, ReactJS, HTML5). You will also get the opportunity to dabble with cross-platform mobile technologies (Xamarin) and a range of emerging technologies in the AI/IoT space.
Moreover, you will get involved in driving Agile development methodologies and will work with a number of key business stakeholders (Architects, Product Managers, Development Manager, CTO etc.) throughout the full SDLC. However, as a Senior Engineer, you will be expected to mentor/coach more junior members of the team and you will be given a fair amoint of autonomy to go out and ensure that projects are completed to the highest possible standard.
Quite the opportunity in (not so) sunny Newcastle!
So if you think this role is something worth following up with a conversation, then drop me a call on either or .
Alternatively, if you are reading this job advert at work (we've all been there) then send me a quick email to and I will make sure I respond.
As always, anything we discuss will remain completely confidential.
