Mid-Level .NET Developer specialising in Umbraco

Creative Spark is a Cape Town-based agency and online publishing operation that is growing rapidly. We’re expanding our development team and are looking for a development guru to join our team to assist on our various projects. We like people who are “can do”, who work quickly and want to make reputations for themselves in the industry.

We’re a fast-paced start-up that employs ambitious and committed people that want to go places, grow with the company and make an impact on the world. We work on a number of exciting and high-profile local and international media projects. Those interested in a sleepy 9-5 corporate job, need not apply.

You will be responsible for the development of modular software components as part of a team of software developers. The work will include design and implementation of web applications, web services, data schemas and databases, and other applications and services.

• Build sites using the Umbraco CMS framework

• Lead/mentor developers and share knowledge

These skills would be great:

• Accustomed to working on multiple projects simultaneously to a high standard.

• Absolute passion for the Internet, World Wide Web and Web Design / Development. Must be passionate about the technology industry.

• Self taught developers have as much chance as someone with a degree – both must have a strong portfolio.
