About Junari

Junari is a well-established Business Software supplier that works with a diverse range of clients around the country. We use cutting-edge open source technology and modern cloud infrastructure to deliver best-in-class business software applications to our customers.

Our customer base is growing and we are on the lookout for a skilled and highly self-motivated Senior Software Engineer to join our team and help us deliver our backlog of exciting client projects.

You will be working as part of an agile team of developers, some with over 20 years of experience in the industry. You'll have the opportunity to get involved in all stages of the software development lifecycle including client meetings, sprint planning, development, testing and deployment.

About You

You'll ideally have at least 5 years of commercial software development experience under your belt, with at least 2 of those being with the Python language, developing web applications (e.g. Django / Flask, or Odoo/OpenERP ideally!)

Much of our work involves designing data models and UI workflows based on customer requirements, so some database design experience is a must.

Many of our projects involve custom web-front-end development, so experience with modern JavaScript development (e.g. React / Vue) would be ideal.

We work closely with our customers, so our ideal candidate will enjoy speaking with end-users to understand their requirements, and will be able to describe complex concepts in a language the customer will understand!

Skills we are looking for

  • Web-based Software Development (5+ years ideally)

  • Python Experience (2+ years ideally)

  • Front-end (JavaScript) development + HTML/CSS

  • Proven experience of designing Customer-ready UIs

  • PostgreSQL Database Design

  • Linux System Administration

  • Cloud Tech & Infrastructure (Docker, AWS)

  • Automated Testing & CI/CD Experience beneficial

Qualities we value

  • Self-motivation, able to use initiative to solve complex problems

  • Ability to work individually and as part of a skilled team

  • Good written and verbal communication skills

  • Able to communicate with customers at the appropriate level

  • Logical and diligent approach to problem solving

About the Role

As a Senior Developer at Junari, you will be responsible for development and support of a wide range of systems based on the Odoo business application framework.

You will join a (currently remote!) team of experienced Developers and Business Analysts. At Junari we are keen on fostering a highly collaborative, agile environment and we value people who are able to perform well as part of a cross-functional team!


  • Assisting with the specification and design of new client systems

  • Building, Testing and Supporting systems built in the Odoo framework

  • Some custom web application development using JavaScript

  • Investigating and resolving issues reported by customers

  • Contributing ideas for process improvements

  • Helping with technical and product strategy

Additional Requirements

  • You'll need access to a Mac or PC of sufficient spec to run a modern web application development environment (incl. Docker and Virtual Machines)

  • You'll be expected to be able to attend in-person meetings (post-lockdown) in Colchester, Essex, up to twice per month.

  • You'll need to be available for an initial online video interview, followed by a face-to-face meeting in Colchester (or video call if during lock-down), and a technical challenge!

Role Terms

  • Type: Permanent

  • Location: Primarily remote, with occasional on-site meetings

  • £40,000 - £50,000, based on, and rising with experience

  • Hours of work: Monday - Friday, 08:30 - 17:00 or 09:30 - 18:00 (UK time), with 1 hour unpaid lunch break (hours flexible by negotiation)

  • 28 days paid holiday (inc. bank holidays)
