Software2 is the home of AppsAnywhere, the world's only dedicated education app store, used and loved by students, colleges and universities across the globe. With offices in Leeds (UK), Boston (USA), Spain and Germany, Software2 are highly-experienced in working within the higher education technology sector, to solve the problem of delivering any software to any user, on demand.

Software2’s AppsAnywhere solution is used by more than 1.5 million students in 150 higher education establishments across North America and Europe.

Job details:
As a junior developer with Software2, you can expect each of the following regular responsibilities in the role:

• Contribute to new features and the wider product and participate fully in the team's responsibilities from the outset
• Participate in planning, design, QA testing and of course, daily stand-ups
• Be part of a team who are responsible for the full development lifecycle of the product: from design through development, to unit and integration testing, as well as iterative improvement, with plans to include deployment and monitoring as part of this in the future
• Together with the team, be responsible for the full technology stack related to the product; from the UI and APIs right down to the services and databases that back the functionality.

Technology Stack

The key technologies and languages we work with include HTML5/SCSS, JavaScript, PHP, Vue, Zend Framework, Looker, and relational databases. It is not expected that you will have knowledge of every part of the stack, but a curious, tenacious and agile mindset will be key to success in picking up the rest!
We have a strong track record in moving our tech stack forward and always look to leverage new technologies to improve our offering. Current plans include exciting technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes and Serverless.
Role responsibilities
The ideal candidate will hold an understanding of basic programming and will have had some exposure to software development, methodologies and principles. You will need to have completed, or be close to completing, a degree in software engineering or computer science. Your code will be continually reviewed, and guidance will be given with regards to algorithms, maintainability and structure. You should feel comfortable making mistakes but be diligently willing to learn from them, able to ask for help regardless of context and open to learning from others.
You will also be top of your class and strive to be such yet will be humble. We’d like to see you using your own time to improve your knowledge of writing software, particularly coding aspects, and should have experience working on personal projects. It is not essential, but we would prefer it if there was a work placement element of your degree and a recognized computing certification (for example, BCS accredited, etc)
