Our Experience:

CML is the leading recruitment agency for offshore IT positions, with the longest-standing IT recruitment desk and trusted relationships with all top employers. Software Engineering positions, by and large, tend to be the busiest sector for IT recruitment our team faces, so we are well-placed and seasoned in helping candidates navigate their careers in offshore jurisdictions. In addition to helping you find accommodation and guiding you through the entire recruitment and relocation process, we socialize and network with all the hiring managers at the major firms and can give you the inside scoop on office culture, salaries, and what the different organizations look for.

What to Expect:

A lot of opportunities for Software Engineering/Development will be within the legal & financial services spaces where you will develop internal software or software to be used within that client base. Some of these organizations are international leaders and offer incredible exposure – quite a large focus will be on security which is paramount within these types of organizations.

Compared to elsewhere, in Cayman, Bermuda and the BVI, teams are sometimes smaller and may not be experts in all areas like front end specialist/ server-side. Instead, your role will be more all-encompassing, giving exposure to the full lifestyle of the software and products. You will also have opportunities to take leadership more quickly than elsewhere, providing a launchpad for further career development.

What Experience is Needed?

90% of software development roles in Cayman, Bermuda and the BVI are .NET full-stack opportunities. You will need to have good experience working with .NET-based tech, specifically c# and more recently .NET core which is now being used within a large majority of companies. You will typically need to have strong front-end exposure also ideally with some of the JavaScript frameworks. Typically, the roles would be at a mid-senior level with generally at least 3 years’ experience required. There are sometimes also leadership level roles within the software engineering space with software architect & development manager positions appearing from time to time.

Aside from .NET opportunities, there are sometimes Python development roles, but they come up much less frequently.

It may all sound too good to be true, but we can go into more detail in your specific practice area during an initial consultation. Curious about moving Offshore? Get in touch today!
