Cheesecake Recruitment is proud to be working on a retained basis with THE FUTURE OF SELF-SERVICE SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS. 

C#/.NET Developer 


An exciting new software start-up specialising in self-ordering solutions (Kiosks) for the hospitality sector. This market, still in its infancy, is expanding rapidly and we believe our client is uniquely positioned with the technology and the expertise to meet the industry’s most pressing needs. With flexible working hours and a dynamic start-up environment they're looking for smart and innovative people to help us make waves.



Seeking a talented and open-minded .NET engineer who can join the Bristol based team and play a pivotal role in bringing several new products to market.

You will be involved in all aspects of the SDLC including requirements definition, domain modelling, technical design and architecture, and 3rd line support. Your focus will be primarily on building and maintaining a collection of micro services for the .net core platform which will support both customer-facing and back-office modules for our next-gen Kiosk product. The software you write will be used in retail outlets across the country and it is an excellent opportunity to progress in your ability to build reliable, scalable, event-driven systems.

You will report directly to the Head of Development and be part of a team of 5-6 including front-end, full stack and mobile developers. You will work with the Product Manager to define and refine requirements and estimate work as well as the Operations Manager to handle priority support cases, though you will not be involved in any front-line support.

We will expect you to be able to apply a multi-dimensional approach to decision making which considers the future of the business, the industry and your team members as well as the technical problem at hand.

You will also be provided the opportunity to try other areas of development such as front-end, or native mobile should you desire it.
