Job description

Want to be part of something really big? If you’re creative and curious to learn, want to be empowered to make decisions and challenge the norm, and want to bring BIG ideas to a MASSIVE digital challenge then you’ll love it here. And we’d love to hear from you.

We are looking for emergent software engineering talents with a passion for java and javascript to work with us on one of the biggest transformation programmes in Europe, providing services that have far-reaching and pivotal roles in citizens’ lives.

You’ll receive on the job coaching, mentoring and support, working closely with and learning from our other experienced Engineers. You’ll also have access to loads of training and development, internal and external, with invites to conferences, meet-ups, events and more.

If you’re talented, ambitious and you want to be a part of a learning, buzzing Engineering community – and you want to use your skills to deliver stuff that really matters into the hands of people that really need it – then you’ll be right at home here.

You and your role

We want people with java and javascript skills to join our thriving community of software engineers. You’ll use the latest and greatest open source tech and tooling to shape and support products that will help millions of people, including some of the most vulnerable in society, access the support and services they need.

We want you to be at your best, so we want you to work in a way that you know fits you best. And we’ll support you however we can, including a real focus on developing and testing your skills.

We write code to create applications and infrastructure, with automated and manual testing being used to make sure it works, is high quality and bug free. We use cutting-edge design, data and a full range of innovative technologies to try out new ideas, experiment, iterate and innovate at pace.

You should be driven to deliver, creative and able to manage your own work and responsibilities. We’re delivering against a huge agenda of change and it can be challenging so, like us, you’ll need to love what you do and love learning new tricks.

What are we looking for?

We provide the latest tech and tooling and foster a collaborative culture to help our agile, multi-disciplinary teams think big and try new things.

In Manchester we’re right on St Peter’s Square so dead handy for trams and trains, and we have great views over the library and town hall. It’s our newest (and fanciest) digital hub and we have some of our most leading edge teams working here. There are loads of great places to get your lunch, or for an after work social, nearby too.

Sheffield is one of our best established hubs with big-hitting teams working on some amazing, high profile projects.

We are an equal opportunity employer and we welcome applications regardless of age, gender, race or sexuality.

What is our offer?

We also offer much more as part of a flexible benefits package – including a cycle to work scheme and lots of family friendly perks – which can be tailored to your lifestyle.
