Project Description

SOLUS UK Ltd is a dynamic and high growth company, based in East Kilbride, that is rapidly expanding its product portfolio and customer base internationally. We are recruiting a .Net developer. This role offers you the chance to join a small company at the ground level and make a real impact as new products are launched to the market in the next 6-12 months.

The IOS project is to take three existing applications (a library app, an NHS pregnancy app and a lifestyle app) and further develop them to include more integrated functionality including; plug ins for external systems, notifications systems, deeper social media links etc. Our growth area is the development of mobile apps for client organisations and this often involves the integration with existing systems, e.g. library management systems, and the booking systems in the leisure industry.

  • Testing of applications on hardware devices and ensuring compatibility across form factors
  • Incorporating customer feedback and suggesting and developing new features
  • Working to tight deadlines whilst maintaining a high level of quality.

The successful candidate would be heavily involved in the development of mobile applications for both new and existing clients and this would involve replicating existing apps for other clients, developing new features and functionality for existing applications and also potentially developing new stand-alone apps.

The successful candidate would be working as part of a small development team and would have the opportunity to contribute significantly to the team and bring their own ideas to the table for consideration and integration.


The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate:


  • A thorough knowledge of the iOS platform
  • An ability to produce high quality work
  • A keen interest in technology and that they keep up to date with the latest trends in the market
    Good communication skills (verbal and written)
  • An ability to work independently in a proactive manner, as well as in small teams



  • Project experience in Mobile Development
  • Knowledge of the Cordova/PhoneGap platform and JQuery Mobile
  • Existing apps in the app store as a reference is also a plus
