The successful applicant will have proven competency in the Core Skills listed below, but must also show willingness to be involved in all stages of the software development lifecycle and be able to take complete ownership of tasks assigned to them.

Example tasks might include:

–       Overhauling the look and feel of our online accounting website:- Needs all new CSS and navigation and the integration of this with existing JSP web-pages – probably a 3 month job in itself

–       Bug fixing/enhancing existing data entry and reporting pages within CounterBooks

–       Adding new financial reports to the CounterBooks system – this would normally involve getting a verbal spec from the MD, turning that into a formal spec document and then writing the code for it, including database data retrieval.

–       Updating our corporate website with new designs and / or content, and maybe implementing a CMS to allow our marketing staff to do future page updates

–       Adding new back-office management pages to our suite of existing pages that are used for setting up new clients, accounts etc.

–       Analysing the benefits of introducing newer technologies such as AJAX or any of the other frameworks into our development process

–       Other tasks we have outstanding such as migrating our content management system into SVN, setting up web services to extract data from some of our partner’s systems etc, all depending upon the skills and experience of the recruit.
