We are looking for aspiring programmers to join our team of talented .NET Developers as a graduate. You can be based out of our London, Lancaster, or Bristol office (depending on location), but with the flexibility to work remotely if needed.

We are Reading Room, an award-winning digital consultancy. For over 20 years we have been helping businesses solve problems and unlock value for their users.

We use Agile processes and in-depth discovery, adhering closely to the principles of user-centred design. We are not afraid to challenge conventional thinking and we’re known for our candid, jargon-free approach to delivery.
Our culture is built on trust, collaboration, optimism, inclusivity and diversity.
Our impressive client portfolio spans public sector brands such as NHS, Health Education England and MHRA, to membership organisations like British Safety Council, Unite the Union, UK Coaching and FIGO, to charities such as Mates in Mind and Teenage Cancer Trust and commercial enterprises, including Royal Mail MarketReach, Countryside Properties, Hill Group, BMI and Circle Healthcare – to name just a few.

About the Role
You will work alongside expert Front End & Back End Developers and you will be passionate about your subject. Within 8-12 months you will be architecting and writing new websites, taking part in support and maintenance jobs across existing client sites and work on a variety of exciting and innovative projects.
The Web Development Production team are the creative, technically incredible, and solution-oriented folk who are responsible for establishing the technical foundations that make Reading Room so amazing. The Developers at Fat Media\Reading Room are at the top of their game and continue to impress us with their skills on a daily basis, the sites we build are high-end websites and the quality of the work that we do for our clients is something we are extremely proud of. We want to find passionate graduates who want to deliver to such a level and are striving to become great programmers.
You will have a degree in Computer Science, a related degree, or a real passion for software development. You will be eager to learn and develop the skills you have touched upon at university. If your university course was not focused on web development then you will have been self-learning from a young age and you will have kept up to date with new technologies. Developing will be your hobby.
You may have some work experience in the industry already, but this is not essential. We would also hope you have built websites in your own time or through your university course.
You should understand some of the following:
- Basic knowledge of ASP.NET
- Understanding of C# development
- MS SQL Server or other database engines
- Understanding of HTML5 and CSS3
- Understanding of Front End frameworks
- Understanding of Software Development Methodologies (Agile etc.)
