In an idyllic part of the Hampshire countryside, lies an awesome and award winning, software development company. The type of software company that delivers incredible projects to prestigious clients, one where every day is different, and where chocolate is delivered to your desk every Thursday.

We specialise in bespoke projects, meaning constant variety and excitement with clients that are as diverse as the latest startup investors to some of the most prestigious brands in the country.

You’ll have plenty of responsibility and influence, will speak with clients and be involved with all aspects of a project. If you’re looking to fade into the background, this job’s not for you!

Working on bespoke projects means we are always being challenged to learn new things, whether that be a new technology, market sector or business process. It’s core to our DNA, and problem solving is what we love most, and so we look for like-minded people who are not afraid to work across multiple languages and disciplines and keep up with the latest technologies.

Easily accessible by car or public transport from Southampton, Winchester, Basingstoke and the surrounding area, our building and location in Alresford provides the inspiring working environment we need to deliver our exciting projects. With good communication links, some remote working may be agreeable for the right candidate.

Interested? We think once you hear more, you’ll agree it’s the best software developer job on the market.

  • A full time development role with full lifecycle involvement
  • A role that will offer continuous variety, plenty of challenges and the opportunity to grow responsibility

  • A pro-active hunger to learn new technologies
  • A can-do attitude and never say no approach to problem solving
  • Core development capability in a number of current programming languages and technologies such as HTML/ Java/ C#/ PHP / SQL Server
  • The ability to communicate clearly and work as part of a team

And ideally

  • Computer Science/software related qualification at degree level
  • Experience in a range of other current and upcoming languages, frameworks and technologies such as Node.js, Angular, Hibernate, Objective C, Kotlin, Xamarin, React etc.
  • Proven commercial experience

Bespoke on
every level

We create bespoke software because we know that one size doesn’t fit all. We truly believe that a bespoke approach yields the best results and the same goes for careers at First Option Software. Below are some of the skills that we need but this is a multi-disciplinary industry, so if you feel that you can offer only one, some or all of the skills we need, we want to hear from you. We’ll work together to create a bespoke job role that works for us both.
