Do you have experience in the design, development, documentation, testing and delivering of software solutions?

Do you balance your deep technical knowledge with top organisational and problem-solving skills?

Do you have strong OOP and design pattern knowledge, with experience leading a team on technical projects?

You could be our next Senior Mobile Developer, and help take Apadmi to the next level.

The opportunity

Since we launched ten years ago, our team has built a reputation and client base that we think means we can rightly call ourselves the best in the UK.

We regularly win awards for our clients who include the NHS, Argos, Co-op, Lexus, SailGP and United Utilities – and that means we need a top team of developers to keep up the good work.

Right now, we’ve got a new opportunity for you to join us as a Senior Mobile Developer. Not only will you work with our designers and their documentation to build high quality software within timeframes and project plans, to the best coding standards, but you’ll be more than capable of stepping into the Technical Lead role on a project too.

You’ll be a natural forward planner, able to critically assess output and delegate development tasks within a team, taking responsibility for technical decisions and estimates whilst ensuring the smooth technical delivery of a project.

What you’ll do

Reporting to the Engineering Manager, your key responsibilities cover the following areas:

Technical Architecture and Planning

  • Creating technical documentation and architecture suitable for peer review, whilst performing peer reviews on the work of others
  • Contributing to design documentation, assessing their suitability for easy 
implementation
  • Devising development plans for a complete project, including the breakdown and 
estimation of tasks
  • Generating technical information and impact assessments on technical changes suitable for 
change requests

Implementation

  • Managing technical issues, acting as a mentor and providing guidance to graduate and software engineers with technical issues
  • Providing technical insight and taking ownership for complex technical engagements
  • Writing software in a variety of languages, understanding and using development environments and associated tools, all whilst 
following coding standards in line with project policy
  • Provide technical input and regularly reporting progress to the relevant Project Manager and Technical Lead

Quality 
and Delivery

  • Agreeing developer testing strategies for project policies, and performing code reviews in line with them
  • Documenting code, managing defects, using source code control and releasing all builds in line with project policies
  • Ensuring the quality of code merged, and the quality of the work delivered, to the project mainline
  • Ensuring developer test builds before submission to Apadmi’s QA team

Communication

  • Liaising with customers as a technical consultant when necessary
  • Be an empathetic lead, communicating clearly with team members whilst maintaining strict confidentiality, escalating any staff issues to the team lead where necessary
  • Be comfortable dealing with our Executive Management 
Team and Directors

Why you should join us

    Fresh fruit and a plethora of bread loaves are delivered each morning to our HQ, plus we have free hot drinks throughout the day, so early birds won’t go hungry at our office.
  • Free parking at HQ

    We know finding somewhere to park for the day can be tricky as well as expensive, but our main office at Warren Bruce Court offers free and secure parking around the clock.
  • Pension scheme

    You won’t just get a competitive salary at Apadmi – we have a healthy pension scheme for all employees.
  • Social events

    Whether it’s a beer after work, or a few cocktails at the Christmas party, we have a packed social calendar with plenty of events for our team to let their hair down.
