Before we tell you more about the role, we’d like to tell you what we mean by Application Development at Baillie Gifford. In truth it can be many different roles. Working primarily with applications that run on both Oracle and SQL server databases, our Application Development team focuses on inventing software solutions that make our business work better and smarter into the future. We work with advanced technologies like ASP. NET MVC, C# and eID, as well as HTML 5 platforms, Google Angular JS, iOS Mobile Development and Android. And we’re always keen to adopt new technology and experiment. Our infrastructure is constantly being enhanced. We were one of the first companies in the UK to have VoIP, Virtualisation, Blackberries and iPads.
We also work with major suppliers and field trial their new technologies. So we’re looking at how new software works and helping to develop its functionality before anyone else has even seen it.
