Daventry, Northamptonshire


Pervade Software are recruiting for a Developer to join our development team in Daventry, Northamptonshire.  This role is ideal for somebody looking to apply their skills in a fast-paced and challenging arena working with our innovative suite of OpView™, OpAudit™ and OpIndex™ software for use in both Public and Private sectors.  The successful candidate will be self-motivated, professional and able to think around problems to find innovative solutions.  Working within our expanding development team, duties will include both updating our existing code-base as well as producing new features from scratch.  We base all of our products on our award-winning proprietary database so no knowledge of SQL is required, in fact we strive to rely on external libraries/code as little as possible, we are ok with re-inventing the wheel if it provides us with more control and/or a better user experience and we constantly buck the global trend of over reliance on 3rd party libraries/code.

All of our products run on Linux and are used by IT professionals to help manage their own IT Infrastructure and Security.  With this in mind, any background in IT Security, Network Management and Linux Administration will also be looked upon favourably. Finally, although our users are typically IT professionals and so considered advanced users, we try to make our software as intuitive and easy-to-use as possible, this is why our developers have a User Experience First approach to all aspects of the development cycle, ensuring that our customers needs stay at the heart of all development.

Salary will vary based on experience and will grow as experience is gained. Pervade are committed to professional development of the whole team with rapid advancement available for those ready for it. Pervade is a small 100% UK-based team that enjoy a great bond, plenty of social activity and actively promote a healthy work/life balance.
