Software Programmer

Location: Richmond

Company: Blue Buffalo Consulting 

Hours: Part Time or Flexible hours available

Salary: Dependent on experience

About The Company:

Blue Buffalo are in the process of opening an office close to Richmond and are looking for a full time (or part time or freelance) C# and SQL Server developer to help support and develop their mission critical, core SaaS system. They are a small team that punches way above their weight and deals with very high profile, well known global businesses.

They are print procurement consultants. That means their core business is currently focussed on the complex procurement category of print where they have a leading approach to spend analysis, tendering and benchmarking, supported by their software platform that has been built entirely in-house.


They are completely open minded when it comes to candidates – they are simply looking for the right person for their business.  With that in mind, the salary is completely dependent on the candidate and their experience, motivation etc.  The right salary is available for the right candidate and they will take the time to train and give you the skills to grow with the business.

Job Description

The role available is to support and enhance the existing platform and develop new system features and entire modules.  Blue Buffalo also conducts a lot of work in terms of integrating with other high profile systems, which the candidate will be responsible for over time.

There will be plenty of time to develop the system and have contact with clients; both via front line support and through face to face meetings to discuss bespoke work.

Skills and Experience

  • Great writing and communication skills
  • Self-motivated and driven
  • Ideas driven and not shy to share them or equally, not embarrassed to ask for help.
  • A wicked sense of humour.

You do not need to be an expert in all areas below.  Blue Buffalo are not looking for a senior developer (if you are and you’ve read this far, apply anyway) – they are looking for someone to grow with them and become an expert.

  • NET (preferably C#)
  • SQL Server and Transact SQL
  • JavaScript (and jQuery)
  • Source control (ideally Git)
  • Excel – they play a lot with data!
  • Anything else that you can wow them with.

The future

This is an opportunity to work in a very unique business experiencing tremendous growth and to work alongside a strong experienced team.  Despite recently celebrating their eleventh birthday, they still have that lively, young and flexible start up feel.

Future strategy means that they are currently branching out into other categories of procurement and applying their leading skills and tools there too.  Also, as a lot of their print buying users have are serving company marketing departments, they are also pushing into the area of marketing workflows to enable marketing to brief directly to agencies, media buyers and of course… print buyers.
