Role details:
Senior Developer. Hatfield. C#. Asp.NET. SQL Server. Swagger. Vue.JS. .NET Core. Azure.
I like this too much.
This is a small dev team doing a big job and they’re expanding as the platforms gain success across Africa.
It’s NOT Banking work but it is huge traffic, low latency, milli seconds response rates type of work.
Very flexible. Very much a tech, product shop with all the stereotypes that come with that. Lots of untaxed benefits (lunch, beer, arcade games etc). LOTS of tech.

You’ll find 2 lines of work.
Your employer is expanding both their feature sets; they’re driving heavy weight optimisation (atm they are literally getting results in milli seconds in certain areas but there is some debt they need to bring in line); the debt demands upgrades into a .NET Core, Azure, Linux type of architecture.

Features of the job:
• Negatives – lots of releases, all the time (none on weekends tho). Very low margin for error. Some pressure but mostly mitigated by automation.
• Tons of new work with the added challenge of optimising your code to a level beyond anything in a vanilla dev job.
• Easy going, tech driven management, lots of flexi time – they believe more in delivery than they do clock watching.
• You can also drop the button up shirts for the rest of your life.

• It’s a C# shop. Right now they’re coding in v 7; but a big move across to .NET Core is being plotted.
• Their platforms are unlikely to move off prem in the short term; but Azure is being introduced.

• They’re more interested in your engineering mindset than buzzwords, everything that follows would be nice but not essential:
• Swagger / REST for similar.
• Azure OR AWS OR GCP OR something else.
• Modern Javascript – Angular OR REACT OR VUE.JS – although they will also happily chat to back end devs.
• SQL Server – T-SQL is a staple for you but you also know how to get into nitty gritty optimising and performance based concepts.
• CI / CD type concepts – you’ve at least thought to yourself about how you would automate any repetitive task in your day.
• Openshift OR Kubernetes OR Docker or something similar – they don’t know what tools they’ll use yet but the concepts are coming soon.

This is perm work. It’s very near to a Gautrain station (if you don’t actually live in Pretoria) and they’re interviewing now. Pop your CV across to me at nicoled@e-merge.co.za and let’s chat.
