Approximately 6 months: July to December 2020 ... but dates are flexible for the right person
For the rest of 2020, the French branch of Icon Software is seeking one or two developers to join our small, dynamic team based at the foot of Mont-Blanc in the Chamonix valley. This is a flexible part-time role, working 28 hours per week, so you can make the most of living in the mountains.
Depending on our requirements later in the year we may offer you a permanent position.
We first advertised this position back in February but coronavirus pushed back our plans by four months. Travel restrictions have now ended in France so we're picking this up again.
Icon Software develops bespoke desktop, mobile and web applications. Founded in 2009 and initially providing software to the oil and gas sector, Icon has since diversified into a range of markets including agriculture, online training courses and business intelligence applications. Our systems are used twenty-four hours a day by multinational oil companies, air traffic controllers, weather forecasters, mariners, farmers and scientists. They enable safe helicopter landings on hundreds of oil rigs around the world, prevent vessels colliding at sea, track antibiotic use throughout the UK farming industry and even guide self-driving robots through hospitals!
We are based in a friendly co-working office in Les Houches, full of people who love the mountains: climbers, skiers, cyclists and trail runners.
You will be working 28 hours per week. Hours are usually flexible so you can make the most of good weather days for climbing.
Between 2,000 and 3,000 euros per month gross, depending on experience.
We are seeking candidates of any nationality but it's worth mentioning that during 2020, the Brexit transition period, UK nationals are allowed to move to France and work here without a visa. If you move here in 2020 then you should automatically qualify for residence in France after the end of the transition period.
Temporary French employment contract (CDD)
Paid leave on bank holidays
Supplementary medical insurance
Supplementary death and disability insurance
If necessary we can assist you with finding rental accommodation.
How to apply
Please email email@example.com attaching your CV and details of when you would be able to start. We'd like you to come to Chamonix as soon as you are able but it may be an option for you to start off working remotely.
You may be given a short programming challenge to be carried out remotely. This should take around 2-3 hours. We will also catch up via Teams to explain the projects.
We are hoping to make a decision by Friday 26th June so please don't delay!
