Developer Jobs in Norwich that pay more than £30k
Earlier this year we produced a heat-map showing the volume of IT & Digital jobs advertised across the country. When zooming into Norfolk we didn’t exactly stand out as England’s equivalent to Silicon Valley. With just 80 vacancies advertised at the time of research it makes you wonder how many of those were developer jobs in Norwich.
When you dig a little deeper beneath the surface it becomes apparent that the IT sector within our rural county is in fact booming. Every year we witness new companies breaking through, making waves and expanding exponentially from Thetford through to Great Yarmouth and everything in between.
In this article I highlight which developer jobs in Norwich pay over £30,000 a year. Not too shabby considering you don’t need qualifications for any of them. Just a brain that’s wired for computer science and a decent level of experience behind you.
