Programmer/Developer – ICSA Software Inc.
GREAT Environment/commute - Software Company in Stratford, CT on Trumbull line right off Route 8 and Merritt Parkway!
Welcome to ICSA Software International
ICSA Software is the world’s leading supplier of global entity management, corporate governance and company secretarial software. As the wholly owned software company of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA), we believe no one understands the needs of companies better than we do.
Thousands of users in over 140 countries rely on our suite of integrated solutions to ensure compliance and demonstrate best-practice.
ICSA is seeking a software developer/programmer to work as part of a development team on product customizations and custom client solutions in our Stratford, CT location. We are a small, casual, development office in a convenient location on the Stratford/Trumbull border, with a great team of people who are technically savvy and who don’t mind swapping hats to provide leverage to one another for various projects. We are busy, and have a lot of work to do, so we are looking for someone who can develop custom solutions, work with integrated applications, and who can take well-written specs, digest the content and ask some questions, and write the code.
Our headquarters is located in the UK and we work with a great bunch of staff located in London, Australia and many other countries. Our clients are some of the largest companies in the world and there is never a dull moment providing solutions for their growing needs and requirements.

We have two positions available! A Database Conversion Speciality, and a Web/Database programmer.
Position #1- a Data Team - Conversion Specialist
A a good knowledge of SQL and one OO language are required for this position. You will do a great deal of SQL work working on custom client conversions from other database applications or sometimes from Excel or other types of input. The developer for this position will perform the detailed data analysis and programming required to populate the client's new Blueprint ICSA database in preparation for a Go-live environment.
Position #2 - A Services Team Developer
The other position is more of a front end programmer where good SQL skills are also important. ICSA’s proprietary software – Blueprint One World - utilizes a web based front-end and a MSSQL database backend. The ideal Web Developer candidate should have some knowledge/exposure working with at least one of the following languages:
Experience in the following is preferred:
An understanding of XML would also be very useful, but not necessary, for hiring.
For Both Positions:
We are looking for candidates who are technically agile with at least a few (or many) years of experience, a varied technical skill set, and who have worked with integrated applications. If you…
- Can write and debug code
- Can learn new systems quickly
- Can manage multiple priorities
- Are able to interact well with other developers and business analysts
- Share information with others easily
- Welcome new challenges
- Would like to be part of a REAL team (where people support one another and share information freely)
…this may be the fit for you.
Other expectations are as follows:
- Code documentation
- Developing and configuring workflows within our proprietary software
- Working closely with our clients to deliver the best business solution for their companies.
- Ability to read and write clearly in English.
US citizens and all those authorized to work in the US are encouraged to apply. We cannot sponsor at this time. All ICSA Staff are required to have a valid passport in the event that international travel is required. This is infrequent/unusual for most staff. If you do not currently have a passport, it is acceptable to obtain one after employment begins.
We provide health benefits, a great 401K program, a casual environment (yes, you can wear jeans to work!), flexible hours, great location (right off Route 8 and Merritt Parkway Exit 51 - no lower Fairfield County commute!), and our fun team meeting bagel breakfasts on Fridays.
Please provide a brief cover letter (addressed to Development Manager) telling us why this position sounds interesting to you, a current resume, and the best way to contact you. We are looking to fill this position quickly and will be contacting candidates immediately if your background fits our requirements. We will consider both newer and very experienced candidates - and are very interested in your skills and enthusiasm. If you have been writing code for 2 or 25 years - we want to talk to you.
We are now looking for two candidates - one for the solutions team creating custom applications and modifications for multiple clients, and one for our data conversion team where this programmer will typically work on one or two SQL conversions for several months. Please let us know which might suit your particular talents or interests.
Thanks for looking and we are excited to hear from you!
