We're not recruiting but if you're interested in a career at Intrica

We are always on the lookout seeking confident and skilful individuals to join our growing team in our Guiseley office. You could be managing your own projects, and therefore require good communication, analytical and testing skills.

We will keep CVs on file for a maximum of 12 months, and let you know first when any more opportunities arise.

Agencies are expensive, and we think the money would be better in your pockets!

If you are successful in your future application, and you have not been referred by an agency, then you may be eligible for a nice £2500 welcome bonus!

an example role:

We are currently engaged in a rewrite of one of our flagship systems that we first designed nearly ten years ago. This system has been instrumental in helping our client grow to over 100 employees in six years. Amongst their numerous systems related awards, they are on the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 list. The existing system works well, but is now somewhat dated, and to coincide with further expansion plans, we are redeveloping the architecture and systems. Planning is already underway, so this is an opportunity to get in at the start with the Laravel and Svelte/VueJS redevelopment.

We require you to work in our office in Guiseley (LS20), and there may be some flexibility over your hours of work. Our modern office is right next to the railway station and with onsite parking. We dress casually in the office except when meeting clients, and welcome you to do the same.

Subsequent to any probation period you would be entitled to join the company’s private health care scheme, and be eligible for various other company benefits.

Due to the nature of some of the clients we work with, you will be required to enter into a non-disclosure agreement immediately upon starting work, and undergo identity and criminal checks, including providing references.
