Software Developers Permanent Roles

Software Developers

We’re looking for passionate Software Developers to join our development team.

We are looking for people that:

  • Have at least 4 years professional and varied experience, quality is more important than quantity though.
  • Preferably have worked on distributed or highly available systems.
  • Are able to be a little independent of guidance and think for themselves.
  • Can solve problems and explain their solutions clearly.
  • Will be excited to join us and will fit in with the team!

We are a close-knit development team and although small, we operate all over the world, are a Microsoft Gold Application Development Partner and number one in our field in configuring 3D CAD. We have some massive and exciting opportunities ahead of us.

We are an independent software company that believes in:

  • Doing the Right Thing – Taking the longer route to writing code if it means a higher quality.
  • Openness – We are open to sharing and listening to you. Whether it’s about development choices, company focuses or the colour of the bike shed.
  • Experimentation – Trying out new languages and frameworks. Even if we don’t end up using things, we can still learn from them.
  • Automation – Our software is all about automation but we also automate it and everything else we possibly can.
  • Passion – It takes a little something extra to make great software. Every developer at DriveWorks believes we are making the best software we can and want to see it become even greater!
  • Freedom – We try to let people control their time and tasks as much as possible.
  • Testing and Tracking – Humans are squishy and data is king. Writing tests can be fun!

Technically speaking we:

  • Are mainly C# (dotnet core) and TypeScript (browser and node) based.
  • Use git – We even have our own internal Github Enterprise server, but use VSTS too.
  • Review code – Everyone gets their code reviewed and anyone can review anything.
  • Continuously integrate – We use build servers like TeamCity and VSTS. Even small tools get a place there.
  • Create service-based cloud software.
  • Are pretty up to date – At the start of every dev cycle we try to ensure that we are using the most up to date tooling we can.
  • Deal with interesting and varied problems – The interesting part might be a little subjective, but we deal with a full spectrum of ever-changing dev tasks.

If you would like to be part of our team…
Please send us your CV (as a PDF) by email and be sure to tell us why you are interested and what you could do. We look forward to hearing from you!
