Company & Role Overview:
Ocean Media Group is a dynamic and progressive organisation, creating services that help our customers succeed and in turn drive our growth. We hold the number one live events and digital brands in all the markets we serve and are on an ambitious and exciting growth trajectory. Our innovative approach, delivered expertly through our market-leading brands, creates highly engaged and loyal audiences.
We’re looking for a Senior Developer to join our rapidly expanding team and help shape the way we build and deliver our products to customers across our markets.
HousingExpert is Ocean Media’s newly launched premium digital intelligence platform, providing the housing sector’s most comprehensive data on housing association finance, stock and development. It is primarily a service for organisations that work with housing associations, including investors, developers, consultants and lawyers. It gives users the ability to explore, compare and analyse information on social housing providers, bringing together business and market intelligence into a single, user-friendly and dynamic platform.
The web-based service is an application built using C# and .NET, which draws data from a SQL database. The HousingExpert Application Developer’s role is to complete snagging and maintenance work on the site, as well as product development to enhance the functionality and performance of the application for existing and new clients.
This is a new role, created to enable Ocean to bring the majority of HousingExpert development in-house, following initial build by a third party. The role is part of a growing Digital Product Team, which is responsible for supporting multiple platforms across the following key areas:
As a Senior Developer you will work with the Product Owner, UX team and other developers to make customer needs become a reality. You’ll be expected to provide guidance and leadership to other developers in the business and set the standard for building and testing new features.
We’re are a dynamic team so looking for somebody experienced in and comfortable working across the full stack but with a strong background as a back-end developer. You’ll initially work closely with an external agency who have built a product but with ultimate goal of bringing development in-house and into a team you can help shape.
Job duties & responsibilities:
You might already be in a Senior role and looking for a new challenge, or you might be ready to take the next step and really make your mark. Either way, you’ll be able to work independently and take the lead on whatever product you’re working on with your exceptional leadership and communication skills. People management experience is a bonus as we will be looking to grow the team around you.
