You’ll be comfortable developing applications within a Microsoft environment, using Agile methodologies and we’ll expect that you’ll be comfortable in Visual Studio, TFS and adhering to Microsoft’s Development best practices. It’s important you have experience developing secure web applications and web services, with Microservices and 3rd party integrations a bonus. The team also support a CRM application so exposure to CRM concepts would be a benefit, as would experience of front end web development frameworks (bootstrap, jQuery, HTML5), Business Intelligence, previous mobile experience or DBA work.
