Your competencies

The team uses a range of development technologies, including the latest web technologies, .NET C# and the newer generation of C++. Our aim is for developers to be able to work with any technology, and we want to support you to develop new skills and enhance existing ones. However, we do need you to have a technical degree or higher with a solid maths background and a strong track record of application software development which must include .NET experience and some C++.
