Software Developer CRM

We’re looking for developers to join our Microsoft Dynamics CRM 365 team full-time. We’re not trying to hire a rock-star, we’re trying to build a great team – which means finding people who work well together, who share a passion for technology and software development, and whose skills and experience complement one another.

  • Proven experience working and delivering Microsoft Dynamics CRM 365 and custom plugins. Knowledge of Full Life Cycle MS Dynamics CRM implementations.Ability to write plug-ins and create custom workflows and sound knowledge of SQL. Working as part of a team, you’ve developed, released and maintained Microsoft Dynamics CRM 365 applications. Ideally in C#/.NET, repository patterns, IoC, mocking and test-driven development in working with .NET.
  • You understand what makes software great. From database optimisation to SOLID principles to TDD to user experience and accessibility, you understand how to deliver systems that are great to use, great to maintain and great to extend.
  • You’ve worked on successful, large-scale software systems. You’ve built interfaces around legacy code and integrated them with green-field projects built using the latest platforms and tools. You’ve built performance monitoring and diagnostics into your software, so your systems can give the operations team the information they need to support and maintain your code without having to call the developers in every time they have a problem.
  • You’ve worked on agile projects, and you appreciate the value of rapid iterations. You’re familiar with Scrum, you’ve taken part in sprint planning meetings and retrospectives, and you know what you can expect from the scrum master and product owner on a project – and what they can expect from you in return.
  • You know how to keep your projects clean and well-structured. You understand the importance of naming. When the answers are always “it depends”, you know what it depends on and you can evaluate the options, make decisions and keep things moving. You know why the arguments to a search function should always be called “needle” and “haystack”, and that there’s times when you need to fire up Visio and draw something properly, and there’s times when a photo of the whiteboard will do just as well.
  • You are passionate about technology, loves to solve problems and delight customers. Someone who wants to join a team of skilled, motivated, agile developers who are busy building the next generation of casting software.
  • You know who’s who and what’s what in the world of modern .NET development and Dynamics 365. Maybe you’re on Stack Overflow, or Github, or Twitter. Maybe you’ve been to DDD or MIX, or go along to meetings at a local user group. Either way, you know that there’s more to .NET than Visual Studio and MSDN magazine.
  • You use technologies like Linq, Castle Windsor, Moq, NUnit, and tools like Git, Resharper and TeamCity.

We’ve got a great office in the heart of the West End, surrounded by some of the best restaurants, bars and theatres anywhere in the world.  We have an awesome social committee, really good coffee, team lunches, theatre trips and even an office popcorn machine.

But we also know that work-life balance is important. We close the office over Christmas and New Year, and you get your birthday off – that’s as well as your normal holiday allowance.

Some of us work from home on Fridays; some of us work remotely, some of us work flexible hours. If you’re the right person for us, get in touch and we’ll do everything we can to make Spotlight the right company for you.
