Our areas of expertise include Experience Design & Delivery, Software Engineering & Cloud and Data Driven Architecture.
Our software developers work closely with business analysts, experience designers, product managers and data engineers to solve user problems and help deliver compelling experiences.

    • Experience with Spring Framework, .NET, or Serverless Framework/Serverless Application Model (SAM)
    • Experience with Java and C# would be beneficial
    • Developed applications using relational databases (Postgres, MariaDB, Oracle) and non-relational databases (DynamoDB, MongoDB)
    • Industry experience using web-based authentication and authorisation mechanisms; for example, Oauth2 and OpenID Connect
    • Hands-on experience with cloud-based logging and monitoring software, such as Splunk, or AWS CloudWatch
At Ippon, we see things differently both in terms of how we work with our clients and how we engage with our people. As we are a relatively small team, albeit part of a global consultancy, we are focussed on quality, not quantity, when it comes to both our clients and our people. From a client perspective, we work with a select group of enterprises that genuinely value the innovation and value that we deliver.
From a people perspective we pay market leading salaries. But we also understand that professional fulfilment is not just about money. We actively support ongoing development in the form of training, attendance at conferences, etc, and we provide staff with the opportunity to contribute to the development and strategic direction of the business. Work life balance is key and we are a flexible organisation, offering 4 day a week option to support your personal and professional development.
