As a Developer, we understand that you are always learning, so we offer an array of training including AWS Certification; Udemy courses, online learning, exam vouchers, tickets to conferences etc etc. Most importantly, you will work on projects that make a real difference, receive feedback from users, and allow you to see the work you’re doing actually making a difference. Finally, you will join a company that is laser focused on being the number one global agency for airport services; delivering defined business and tech goals with a team that will allow you to deliver with adult autonomy.

The Role:


This role is directly aligned with MAGO’s driving ethos; to create build and deploy systems quickly in a truly agile fashion using quality data and feedback.

We therefore offer a truly exciting challenge; to join a busines which is as ambitious and as innovative as you are!




We know that you’ve probably spent most of 2020 working from home quite happily and productively, and we understand that (whilst we have amazing modern offices at Manchester Airport) the need to be in the office every day is, well, a bit old fashioned. Therefore, we also welcome candidates to apply who wish to work from home for most of the week (some office work is required)

You will have a good knowledge of .NET Core with proven experience delivering highly resilient, scalable solutions. We like serverless here and use AWS services like: Lambda, API Gateway, Dynamo, EC2. You will ideally have some experience or knowledge of using Cloud Platforms, be that AWS/ Azure/ GCP etc. However, we will bring you up to speed, and even support you an AWS Certification.


Our Dev teams follow agile principles and are looking for someone that is comfortable working that way: contributing to stand-ups & retros, with a collaborative mind-set.

  • Good C#/.NET core experience
  • Good knowledge of ASP.NET MVC, WebAPI
  • Experience of web-based technologies such as JavaScript, CSS, HTML
  • Knowledge and experience of working with an ORM (e.g. NPoco, Entity Framework)
  • Good understanding of OOP, clean coding practices, SOLID principles
  • Great communication and interpersonal skills
  • Keen appetite for self-development and continuous improvement
  • Experience working with cloud technologies – preferably AWS but others is still useful.


What are we offering?


  • A company that is inclusive and tolerant to all

  • Up to £45,000 base (on experience) + pension and bonus
  • Free parking and significantly subsidised public transport
