Senior Software Engineer

Department: IT
Closing date:

As a senior software engineer and co-owner (Riverford became employee owned in 2018), you will be a key member of our team, leading the development of both customer facing and back office software. Our wide variety of projects range from custom apps and websites to back office systems and third-party integrations.

You will take a considered approach to development and be responsible for software excellence. We expect candidates to be confident in analysing requirements, talking to users and stakeholders to understand what they need, and to take cost/benefit into consideration when making decisions.

We expect that you will have a good understanding of computer science fundamentals – and can identify when prior work has already been done on a problem. You will be capable of debugging and correcting defects, as well as testing to ensure defects are less likely.

We work in an agile manner, releasing often. So good continuous integration practices and automated testing is a must. You should feel comfortable working with and mentoring others, and improving quality through considerate, respectful code review.

Either on-site or remote working are equally valid for this role, however you need to be a UK resident. Remote working will require a minimum of 5 days on-site in Wash Barn, Devon every two months once the coronavirus lockdowns have ended. The time on-site would correspond with our other remote workers so that we can spend the time building the team as well as the software.

For those who would wish to relocate closer to our offices in South Devon, a relocation package is available.
