Producing innovative solutions through software development services

FDM’s Software Development service provides highly trained, adaptable and creative full stack developers to deliver technical solutions for our clients. Our consultants are trained across several programming languages including Java, Python, C#, C++ and COBOL, as part of cross functional teams in an agile working environment. With a focus on Test-Driven Development, our consultants are experienced in building quality code in a collaborative manner.

We partner with our clients across digital transformation programmes in sectors including finance, aviation, retail, media and the public sector to name a few. Our engineers have worked with clients to develop complex trade applications for global banks, applications to optimise and enhance key operational systems for airlines, new entertainment channels for broadcast media or improving critical government services that millions of UK citizens depend on daily.

Highly trained, adaptable and creative full stack developers

Our software developers are proficient in relational databases, server side object-oriented programming and front-end web technologies. Consultants are trained in, and have worked within an agile and Scrum framework.

In addition to training in the full stack of development technology, our consultants learn business skills that will allow them to seamlessly merge into your existing teams and hit the ground running. Some of the augmented skills we offer all our consultants during their training include professional skills, time management, Agile Principles and application design fundamentals. We deploy developers who are strong problem solvers, with a logical and analytical mindset, and with excellent communication skills.

Through FDM’s Agile Pods, we can deploy full cross-functional Scrum teams, providing burst capabilities to our client’s teams and projects. The FDM Pods ensure that our consultants avoid a gap between placements continuously allowing them to grow their technical skills via on-going training. Depending on our clients’ specific needs, we also have the capability to provide fully formed teams of full stack developers geared up for various business or technical challenges.

“Ritchie was tasked to deliver a key and difficult piece of financial modelling functionality within a short period of time. He has been pivotal in the development of the Store application which during his time at the DfE has become more and more important to the everyday business of the organisation.”
