How often have you heard “it’s not broken so why fix it?” and thought “um, because there’s a better solution out there?!” but your manager doesn’t see it that way so you just get your head down and persevere with outdated processes, ways of working and what is now ‘legacy’ code. Yep, legacy. It wasn’t even cutting edge 10 years ago and now it’s so old that even the guy who wrote it isn’t sure why he put that bit there or what he was actually thinking with some of his logic. All the business knows is, it hasn’t fallen over (yet) so it doesn’t need changing.


Sound familiar?


If you’re stuck in a frustrating environment like this with no hope of an overhaul and you need a new challenge….this could be the job for you.



Distinct Recruitment have partnered with an organisation based in North Nottingham who are going through a period of change, meaning an influx of energy into the IT department so they are now in a position to bring a Senior Software Developer on-board who can breathe life into their systems and fix all their software problems.


With a total change in attitude and a real desire to improve their systems this is now a fantastic opportunity for an experienced senior developer to take over, make real changes and own the software agenda moving forwards.




If you’re a true problem-solver you will relish this opportunity. You’ll be regarded as a subject matter expert and will be given free rein to make the software changes that you see fit. If you think the best thing to do is completely rewrite the application – do it! If you think you just need to make a few tweaks here and there to improve functionality, that’s great too! As a company these guys are heavily reliant on their bespoke internal systems and their CRM, so any improvements you make will save them time, hassle and ultimately will help them to make them money. You’ll be doing a full 360 role – speaking with internal stakeholders, gathering your own requirements, and then delivering on those requirements. PLUS you will be responsible for SQL reporting which will add tangible value to the sales side of business and really put you in the good books.


As you can already tell, there’s a lot to go at. Project number one is to upgrade their Classic ASP system to .NET. Project two is to upgrade and improve functionality of the CRM. After that, the world is your oyster.


If you’ve been stuck in a role where your employer has no appetite for change, and you’re just bug fixing old code day after day – this could be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for to really spread your wings and show what you can do.


In return you’ll receive a very competitive salary of up to 50k, plus a lucrative profit share bonus scheme. You’ll get 25 days holiday and join a company who truly care about and invest in their employees. The average tenure at this company is 15 years, which really shows what a great place this is to work.
