After celebrating our successful growth last month, it’s time for us to put a new goal in place. Last year we expanded by 50% and welcomed 10 new recruits to our team, and now we’re looking to double again!

 

Finding software developers in the South West is by no means a trivial matter; they are few and far between, and it’s been a challenge recruiting over the past year. With a target to employ 20 new engineers by October 2015, we’ve got to start thinking outside the box.

 

In order to make people aware of our name and careers opportunities, we’ve launched a competition this month, where entrants must complete a cyber-dojo coding challenge to be in with a chance to win Google Glass!

 

We are targeting talented software engineers across the UK (and further afield too!), and will be judging submissions based on the quality of their code, rather than the time it takes them to complete the task.

 

We like to instil a bit of fun into software development, and we hope plenty of enthusiastic programmers will be keen to take the challenge!

 

Our aim is to get people interested in what we have to offer here at Bluefruit, particularly with regards to careers prospects. Take a look at our careers page for more details on how to apply for a job with us, or check out our open Apprenticeship positions.
