What experience are we looking for?

  • 4+ years developing .NET and Microsoft related products
  • Strong working knowledge of software IDEs – e.g. Visual Studio, Code, etc.
  • Experience with database tools, Microsoft SQL preferred
  • Experience with web development technologies – e.g. HTML5, CSS, XML, etc.
  • Working knowledge of web services and protocols – e.g. SOAP, REST
  • Knowledge of source code management solutions
  • Experience with task management software such as Jira is desirable but not essential
  • Experience with K2 (workflow) or Elite 3E (finance) is desirable but not essential

Why work with us?  

We want to be the law firm clients love to work with and a great place to work and grow for our people. It’s important to us and our clients that our people find working at KWM an enjoyable and rewarding experience. 

We know our people value flexibility around when and where they work. So we are committed to offering a more adaptable way to work – we call this Agile Working.

Growth conversations and real-time feedback is also a priority.  So whether it’s more targeted and meaningful conversations around professional and personal development, regular feedback, coaching or developing infrastructure - we want to help our people grow.
