We're looking for an experienced software developer to join our development team in Jersey. The role is diverse and encompasses every stage of the software development lifecycle. We're looking for candidates who share our passion for tackling complexity and building software that is simple, beautiful and scalable. 

Key Responsibilities

Working as the technical lead for of a small team of developers, your responsibilities will be varied. Your main focus will be to turn product requirements into functional features by making high-level architectural decisions, splitting up work into manageable tasks and delegating those to the team, as well as providing technical guidance to the team through code reviews, writing coding standards and teaching best practices. 

Whilst we expect every member of our development team to keep abreast of the latest technologies, this is doubly true of a Senior Software Developer - we'd expect you to be frequently reading, engaging with online communities, attending industry conferences and workshops and so on.

We expect a Senior Software Developer to have had several years of direct experience with this specific technology stack, as well as a robust understanding of modern javascript frameworks. Candidates should have at least five year's worth of experience working as a developer. 

Every member of our development team is expected to be able to work on any part of the stack, and as such we're looking for expertise in almost all aspects of the development lifecycle. We expect candidates to have a robust understanding of HTML, CSS and SQL, as well as to be comfortable with Git and Agile development practices.

Benefits

We care deeply about making Pinpoint an incredible place to work and as such invest a significant amount of time and energy into creating and maintaining a company culture that provides our team with a generous level of support whilst inspiring them to do their best work. 

The specific benefits / perks we offer are continually evolving, but currently include: 
  • Full healthcare coverage for you and your family 
  • Free lunch at the office daily
