Careers

Software Developers x 2

We are currently recruiting for two software developers, offering a competitive salary for both roles plus excellent benefits. One role will be situated within our Qualsafe Awards team, the other within our Qualsafe.com team and as such, require different levels of technical experience.

 

Why work for Qualsafe Group?

Qualsafe employees operate in a relaxed environment where they are encouraged to manage their own workloads alongside the support of the wider team and management. We motivate employees to identify their own training or support needs, encouraging staff to self-reflect on working practices and identify areas they can improve on and progress within.

In terms of software development, each individual is encouraged to work autonomously whilst being supported by the team, reinforced by the team of developers meeting weekly to share progress, ideas and help problem solve. Qualsafe is an independent company which allows developers more freedom in their style of working with less red tape slowing down progress. Where possible the team prefers to work in an agile environment and work closely with other teams to propose and progress solutions, often working collaboratively with whiteboard working, collective mind mapping or meetings to ensure this happen.
