This can be a fixed Contract period or a full-time role. This role will be central to the team and will be involved in the foundational steps of a transformational project to build a new Azure cloud platform and application architecture to deliver a market leading SaaS application.
This is a genuinely exciting opportunity for a highly skilled and motivated, experienced cloud applications developer with very strong platform and architectural solution design know-how. You will make your mark on this project from inception to the first market launch.
You will take a lead design and developer role in small strategic team of developers and business analysts reporting directly to the Flextime CTO. Expect to spend 20% in design mode and 80% delivering working code at architecture and application features level. You will be expected to challenge and prototype design options against tight project time constraints. Automation will be a passion for you.
Some design decisions are yet to be validated and tested and therefore some implementation decisions are still to be made. The first early iterations will deliver an Angular SPA front-end application communicating via secure APIs (HAL) to the back-end services including Scheduling, Service Bus and data stores (The platform is Azure PaaS; Azure SQL, App Services, Service Bus and Application Gateway). There is a business rules engine.
The solution architecture pattern follows the clean architecture model with emphasis on the isolation of concerns and will easily evolve to full native cloud implementation over time.
