Start 2020 with an exciting step and a new role at Tribal Systems, based at our offices in Reading.

Developer Role, salary £22,500-£35,000

We are seeking to add to our existing, friendly team with a new Developer role based at comfortable offices in the centre of Reading. Our team builds, hosts and maintains a range of customer and internal sites, such as:

  • CMS-based websites, often with sophisticated features such as product-finders, mapping systems, e-commerce, CRM integration, multilingual front-ends, and other custom features
  • IoT (internet of things) platforms, based on our Assetwolf software, which are used in facilities management and which support near real-time aggregation of data from the field
  • Customer dashboards and various kinds of extranet and secure portals, based on our Zenario platform.

The work is varied, but it is expected that the Developer will spend at least 50% of his or her time working on IoT projects, working alongside existing people to learn and develop this advanced platform.


You will need to meet all of the following requirements to be considered:

  • able to reside and work in the UK at our Reading offices (this role is not suitable for remote working)
  • degree-qualified, ideally in Computing, Engineering or another technical field
  • at least 1 year's experience working with PHP and JavaScript
  • experience working with databases (ideally MySQL, but other SQL and no-SQL are helpful)
  • able to communicate well (reading, writing, and verbal) in English.

In addition to this, the following attributes would be desirable:

  • good problem-solving skills, and the ability to adjust to new technical environments
  • experience with Linux and/or AWS
  • experience of any internet of things technology
  • experience in developing native mobile apps.


We offer a salary commensurate with your breadth and length of experience, ranging from £22,500 for a junior person with around 1 year's experience, up to circa £35,000 for someone with several years' experience.

Our workplace is pleasant, modern and friendly, and conveniently located in the centre of Reading opposite the station.

We operate a semi-flexible working hours system (38.5 hours per week) and there is an excellent contributory pension scheme (5% employer, 5% employee).
