We understand that it's not easy to recruit the best developers at short notice, so for us, it's an ongoing thing. We tend not to advertise for a specific vacancy, but are constantly on the lookout for the best programmer talent out there. If the right person comes along, we'll do what we can to hire them.
And right now, we’re actively hiring!
What can we offer?
- Freedom to work the way you think is best
Nonlinear Dynamics is a small, responsive company that won't restrict you in the way that some companies can. Don't believe us? Get in touch and ask us about how we work. In the development team, we use agile practices from SCRUM and are evolving these constantly based on our experiences. There's no dogma here.
- Develop using up-to-date technologies
We build desktop Windows applications using the .NET stack, primarily in C#, and making heavy use of WPF, MVVM, LINQ, Rx, Unity, MEF, the Task Parallel library, NSubstitute, Moq, and small amounts of WinForms (steadily being replaced by WPF), WCF and more. In terms of tools, we use the latest Visual Studio and ReSharper plus Mercurial or Git (your choice), NUnit, FogBugz, Kiln, Trello, TeamCity and OneNote; plus anything else we feel we need.
- The chance to change the world
The software we develop is helping scientists all over the world to better understand the biochemical world, developing drugs to fight cancer, plants to revolutionise biofuel production, and so much more. Working at Nonlinear, you'll learn a little about biochemistry too — it's a fascinating domain and a great way of expanding your mind. Job satisfaction doesn't come much better.
- Big-company benefits in a small company
If you do a bit of googling, you'll see that we've recently been acquired by Waters Corporation. This has brought with it some extra employee benefits including a company pension scheme and a healthcare package. And, despite now being part of such a large parent company, we're delighted to have retained the ethos and agility of the past 20+ years of being a start-up. So you get all of the up-sides and none of the potential downsides.
- An easy commute
Our core working hours are from 10am to 4pm (in a 37.5 hour week), meaning you can avoid the rush hour. Overlooking the Newcastle quayside, we're also just a couple of minutes' walk from the nearest Metro station and 10 minutes' walk from Central Station, so you might be able to avoid the roads altogether.
What can you offer?
If all of the above sounds good and you think you can boost our team, get in touch by sending a CV/résumé and a brief introduction to yourself to email@example.com. Be sure to include details of your current salary too.
