Wheeve is a niche IT consultancy that focuses on integration. Whether it is strategy and architecture, technical implementation and support or operating model change, the experience of our highly skilled team sets us apart. We are a small organisation but we are growing quickly and expansion of our technical team is central to these growth plans. 

We are currently recruiting for a senior integration developer, someone with a deep and broad understanding of the implementation of applications and the infrastructure that delivers them. A strong integration developer, you will be focused on delivering excellence and demonstrating value to our clients. As a senior figure in a growing team, you will be a skilled coach, invested in developing the skills of colleagues and comfortable being the ‘go-to’ person on a day to day basis. This is a client facing role and you will need to be confident dealing with escalations and managing requirements. 

We offer quite a unique opportunity to train in and deliver against a wide range of integration technologies including WSO2, Mulesoft, Dell Boomi, SnapLogic and Talend. Experience in one, or more, of these would be ideal however we will also recruit engineers who have developed their skills delivering integration through IBM, Tibco, Oracle, WebMethods or Microsoft. 

A solid technical background is essential but above that we are looking for client focused problem solver, someone who will analyse requirements, considering all aspects of a situation, to identify the most appropriate solution. You will be committed to investing in the development of your skills with drive and curiosity to continuously learn new skills and investigate new technologies. We will provide training, certification, coaching and on-the-job experience to support this skills development.
