£28,800 – £36,000 plus benefits (Work Level 6A)
We’re currently working remotely due to Covid. The future will see us working in a hybrid way, with a mixture of home and office working.

We’re looking for an experienced developer to join our IT team here at Nisa and help us develop and maintain easy-to-use mobile apps to help our partners run their stores from their smartphones. Since Nisa was acquired by Co-op in 2018, we’ve focused on combining the best of both organisations to offer something new to independent retailers and commercial wholesalers across the UK. More scale and better product ranges give Nisa partners a real competitive advantage.

In this role, you’ll spend a large part of your time working on our OCS app – an app that allows our partners to easily manage their orders hassle-free. We’ll look to you to develop new functionalities and maintain this app, as well as build on its success and develop new projects that’ll simplify and streamline processes and tasks for our partners. You’ll also get to work across other areas of our non-mobile roadmap and develop some of our other business systems too. If you have passion for development and experience in mobile environments, then we can offer you a fantastic opportunity to grow your career and make a genuine impact on our business.

•    develop, implement, and maintain change control and testing processes for modifications to the codebase
•    create and maintain technical documentation
•    produce ad hoc queries and develop reports to support business needs
•    identify inefficiencies in the codebase and investigate solutions
•    diagnose and resolve database access and performance issues
•    manage the application development in support of business operations
•    design, develop, and install enhancements and upgrades to mobile applications and internal systems
•    work closely with network administrators and trainers/testers to assist with quality assurance, program logic, and data processing

This role would suit people who have

•    sound knowledge of C# (WPF and ASP.Net)
•    experience of mobile development using Xamarin for both Android and IOS
•    familiarity working with APIs
•    the ability to effectively manage own time and workload
•    an ability to work collaboratively with the wider team

•    competitive salary

•    pension with up to 10% employer contributions
