Java Software Developer

Location: Remote - Leeds, United Kingdom

The Role

Crisp recruit for a number of different Software Developers. This includes C# Developers, Javascript, Python, and Java !

Although this role is remote, the right individual does need to be within an accessible distance to our Leeds offices, flexibility to attend our offices every so often will be essential.
