Experienced Software Developer

We are looking for a skilled developer with key skills in most if not all of the following: – C#, SQL, Web based technology (IIS, ASP.NET some Javascript) and winforms. We use DevExpress widgets in most applications (Web and Winforms).

Ideally you will have:

  • Knowledge of automated testing through the UI would be advantage and in particular of Selenium usage, plus experience of continuous deployment and Azure DevOps
  • Experience of the Insurance industry at all levels (Direct to Client, Agent, MGA, Carrier, Re-Insurer) would be a real advantage but all candidates should be able to demonstrate a sound understanding of standard business flows (Enquiry->Quote->Order->Purchase->Invoice->Remittance).
    Some systems include accounting modules and knowledge or willingness to learn about company accounts, T accounts and client accounting will be required.
  • Good customer interfacing skills and documentation production a requirement.
  • A passing knowledge of Linux, PHP, Bash Scripting and Apache would be useful but not a requirement.

There is an opportunity to work across a number of different industries but the initial projects will be very heavily insurance biased. We have over the years developed a number of insurance solutions and are particularly proud that one of them has been selected as the primary means of expansion for a major player in the market.

All developers at JC Designs interface directly with the client and are expected to manage the technical (not business) relationship. We pride ourselves on understanding the client’s operational requirements and then turning that into a technical solution, we always work in an informal Agile manner and translate the client’s needs into exciting technical solutions.

We form long term relationships with clients (sometime decades long) and the solution continues to be developed and grow with the clients developing needs.

We work as a team and many projects have decades worth of development behind them.

We are very open to innovation and new developments but cannot undo the past. Part of our success is we have picked technologies and solutions with true longevity and successfully avoided many development/programming fads. Nevertheless; time is available to explore new technologies and then review them with the team to see if they would be of use in our developments.

Several of our products are used by major players within their industry sector and although a small software house we punch above our weight with a most impressive client list.

JC Designs is very supportive of self-development and will provide funding for relevant training courses and exams or simply books.

We are based in prestigious offices in Freeport Braintree with a wealth of facilities including bowling, cinema, swimming, restaurants, shopping and plenty of parking.

We have been established for over 30 years a Company with a proven track history and bright future – we are passionate about what we do.
