Overview

BJSS’s Development team, sits within our Technology Practice. At BJSS we’re passionate technologists that strive to deliver the very best solutions for our clients. As a member of the Technology team, you will need to share this passion and be inspired by Technology. Our consultants typically create complex solutions in demanding and sometimes difficult environments, they create the tools and/or build solutions that have never been built before. As part of a consultancy business, you will get exposure to various clients across multiple sectors across the UK (and beyond…).

You will have access to leading technologies and you will get to work with some great people who consistently deliver top quality solutions.

We’re currently looking for creative and talented people who enjoy being challenged, to join our diverse team of technical Developers. Most of our assignments enable you to work directly with our clients. This could be on client site or out of a BJSS office.

We undertake a wide variety of work and although no two engagements are the same, a BJSS Development engagement will typically:

  • Project Delivery
    • Working within a team on the end-to-end delivery of software projects for our clients, our developers use industry best-practice techniques to design, implement and then deliver solutions.
    • Projects may be delivered using our BJSS Enterprise Agile approach, or the clients preferred method, and may be a pure BJSS team or an integrated BJSS/client team.
  • Consultancy
    • Clients turn to us for development-based consultancy services such as the design and development of their IT systems, reviewing their existing technology stack and providing strategic input for future extensions to their IT systems. These are both advisory and in project delivery capacity at client sites.
    • Engagements may be delivered from our own offices in the City or at one of our client office locations – an element of travel is part of the job.
