Junior Software Engineer

Are you a self-motivated software developer looking for your next challenge? Faithful+Gould is growing their Software Development Team and are recruiting for a Junior Software Developer.

You will have the opportunity to work at the forefront of the digital transformation taking place in the construction industry. Engaging with talented and industry-leading experts across the business, you will help to develop web-based tools that are used by the business to deliver major projects and programmes, globally.

This role can be based out of any of our UK offices (https://www.fgould.com/uk-europe/contact-us/) with the option to work flexibly when required.

This role will require occasional travel around the UK.

About Us

Faithful+Gould is one of the world’s leading project and programme management consultancies operating at the forefront of the property and industry sectors. Placing great emphasis on the training, development and progression of our staff, we’re dedicated to providing high quality professional services with cutting-edge expertise to our clients.

Our team

We are a small team, collaborating and working from multiple locations across the UK. As part of the wider Business Services team we work with the Business Systems, Assurance, Change and Intelligence functions to provide robust infrastructure to support the wider Faithful+Gould organisation.

The role

We are looking for a self-motivated software developer with experience to join a well- established team of two, developing data driven web- based tools to support our business.

Our primary product is a totally bespoke data warehouse / business intelligence system. It captures data through system integration and user input and then presents it on dashboards, PDF reports and Excel exports to support programme management, marketing, cost benchmarking and more. We have a desire to add self-discovery to the data capture side and more data analytics to the processing/presentation side.

We also support a mission-critical Classic ASP based system used by a major UK client for managing their value-based contracts.

On joining the team, you will learn how to do Agile software development using a simple but strict methodology to maximise quality; how to create software in a Continuous Deployment environment which can deploy software and database changes at the push of a button; and how to write data-driven software to remove the need for writing repetitive code in the future e.g. you will never need to code a data input form/page again.

Responsibilities:

  • Select tasks from the sprint backlog
  • Implement them using our house style
  • Present your code for peer review
  • Modify as appropriate
  • Submit into our continuous deployment system
  • Update development wiki

Desirable skills & qualifications

  • Software engineering degree or equivalent
  • C# asp.net MVC
  • Javascript with jquery
  • SQL Server stored procedure development
  • Test driven development
  • Willingness to share in the support of a classic ASP system
  • Good communication skills
  • Motivated self-starter
  • Effective whilst delivering remotely
  • Comfortable learning to work with end users to gather and articulate user requirements

Training and development:

The work the team does offers continual opportunities to learn new principles and techniques through practical application (do-it and learn) with mentoring from our team lead who has been writing software for 40 years. Friday afternoons are typically set aside as innovation time to try new technologies/techniques or to add features to our products that haven’t been explicitly asked for but would enhance it.

You should possess a willingness to continue to develop your career through our structured training programme. Faithful+Gould develops individuals through a portfolio of training and development courses designed to help you make the best of your abilities and talents. We provide a structured training scheme and endorse Continuous Professional Development Activities.

Rewards:

Faithful+Gould offers a fantastic range of benefits, which you can tailor to suit your own health, well-being, financial and lifestyle choices.

All the information you need to know is available on our dedicated benefits portal; your reward, which is available to access 24/7 from any device: https://www.yourrewardatkins.com

Security Clearance:

This role may require security clearance and offers of employment will be dependent on obtaining the relevant level of clearance. If this is necessary, it will be discussed with you at interview.

If applying to this role please do not make reference to (in conversation) or include in your application or CV, details of any current or previously held security clearance.

Faithful+Gould, part of the SNC Lavalin Group, is committed to having a diverse and inclusive workforce. As an Equal Opportunities Employer, we value applications from all backgrounds, cultures and ability.

Faithful+Gould recognise that there are many well qualified people who are looking to further their career, but who cannot commit to full time employment. We support flexible working arrangements and are interested to discuss how we can accommodate individual requirements
