Job details

Are you seeking the perfect combination of established company security, start-up freedom and making a real difference to global challenges? If you’re looking for a role that offers hands-on, small-team buzz and creativity backed by big company benefits and peace of mind, all whilst improving the health of animals, people, and our planet, then Farmvet Systems is for you.

We are a founder-run software company with a market leading product that’s been around for over a decade. We help mobile, rural vets save time and make the best decisions possible for the animals under their care so that farmers can efficiently produce safe, affordable food. We significantly impact the responsible use of antibiotics and reductions in energy use, water use and greenhouse gas production on farms. Since 2018 we’ve been owned by Vetoquinol - a multinational company who recognise us as highly strategic for their exciting transformation to solution provider instead of pharmaceutical product company.

Join our team of software professionals and discover what it’s like to have the best of both worlds:

  • Small team working diligently, efficiently, and intelligently.
  • Hybrid (remote and in-office) working.
  • Rural location (avoiding city traffic on travel days).
  • 32 days paid holidays per year (including statutory holidays).
  • Flexible and family-friendly working.
  • Bonus scheme.
  • Work with business stakeholders from across Europe and beyond.
  • Make a real difference to global sustainability.

Farmvet Systems is looking for a highly experienced software technical architect to join our team in Moneymore on a hybrid basis, mixing working from home with coming into the office when advantageous to you and your colleagues.

Our agile team develops and supports applications used by customers globally. Working on our core VetIMPRESS SaaS product for the agricultural veterinary market, you’ll work closely with the Product Owner (founder), the Software Development Manager and the rest of the Scrum team to develop and maintain software related to our web and mobile applications and our data ingestion, analytics, warehousing, reporting services and APIs.

The ideal candidate will have a strong software development background, particularly with Microsoft technologies including C#.NET and Microsoft SQL Server, but also with JavaScript, HTML and CSS, mobile technologies, and data analytics and warehousing. Experience with Microsoft Azure would also be beneficial.

This is a hands-on role, working alongside but often ahead of the scrum team, being a respected resource of knowledge, experience and decision making. It will be the responsibility of this role to reduce and keep technical debt to a minimum.


You will collaborate with business management on which projects to prioritise, how to shape the proposed solutions and what resources will be required to create the technical solution.


Your day-to-day role will allow you to:

  • Collaborate with stakeholders to understand business requirements and translate them into technical solutions.
  • Design end-to-end architecture for complex software systems, considering factors such as scalability, reliability, security and performance.
  • Lead the development and implementation of technical solutions, providing guidance, support and mentoring to development teams throughout the software development lifecycle.
  • Evaluate and recommend technologies, tools and frameworks.
  • Define and help to enforce coding standards, best practices and architectural principles (e.g., SOLID) to ensure the delivery of high-quality, maintainable software.
  • Conduct architectural and code reviews and provide feedback to the development team to ensure alignment with architectural guidelines and project objectives.
  • Stay up to date with emerging technologies, industry trends and software development best practices.

We are offering a basic salary of £50K–£70K per annum depending on experience.
