Position title

Part of this environment is the redevelopment of core custom-built applications that have been developed over the last 30 years using COBOL.

The new system is intended to be built on a modern technology and architecture utilising cloud technology and best practice in software development. Part of this need is to ensure that the new system is extensible to cater for future needs of the business with ease.

We are seeking a Senior Software Developer on a contract basis to assist in leading the development for the new application layer for the business. This will involve not only hands-on coding of the new system but will include design, architecture and mentoring the existing development team in best practise with respect to software development.
