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 talented Java Developers 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 be joining a team working on the most demanding, high profile and exciting new digital service for the UK Government.

In BPDTS Ltd you will be part of an organisation responsible for the delivery of digital platforms and services, real-time analytics and flexible infrastructure, providing secure and resilient services to DWP. Joining an innovative, supportive and fast-growing community of skilled digital professionals, you will work in agile and creative ways to improve public services, with the power to make a difference to the lives of 22 million UK citizens.

You’ll bring your outstanding skills to a collaborative team including around 30 Developers, 20 QAs, 15 BAs, IxDs, User Researchers, FE Devs and more.

Our multi-disciplinary agile team is a testing ground and an incubator for ideas and ways of working that will influence the way things are done across government. We want to prove that our creative, innovative approach can work in the public sector, that technology can change lives, and that we can successfully transform the delivery of government products and services. We want you to help us.

What are we looking for?

Required skill
• Experience working with Java.
• An understanding of Test Driven Development and Behaviour Driven Development
• Understand key principles of modern standards approaches, including agile software development and continuous integration.
• Experience working as part of agile multi-disciplinary teams

Nice to have
• An understanding of developing software within a Micro-Service architectures.
• Experience of using SQL and no-SQL database applications, particularly Mongo
• Experience of working in a Pair Programming environment

You and your role

You aren’t bothered about titles or hierarchy; what really excites you is problem-solving and the opportunity to deliver innovative technology that carries real value for users. You will draw value from collaboration with others, actively seek input from colleagues and thrive as part of a multidisciplinary team.

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.

We will empower you do your job in the way that works best for you. Our leadership clears away the noise and distractions so that you can have the autonomy and ownership to challenge, question and do the right thing at the right time.

We want you to feel the same purpose and pride that we do and to have the same desire to deliver. We work hard because we care about the result and because we know it matters. If you are driven by the same purpose, and by the same desire to overcome challenge and complexity through technology then you will be right at home here.

Where will you work?

BPDTS Ltd provides dedicated services to the Department for Work and Pensions. Our digital, data and technology specialists work closely with experts in DWP Digital’s community to make digital services quicker, simpler and more efficient for the millions of people that use them.

Our team has grown from something small, with the feel of a start-up, to something a lot bigger. But we’ve kept the same spirit and sense of community.

You’ll join us in our easy-to-reach digital hub in Central London. Right at the heart of government in Westminster, our hub has been designed for and by members of our digital community. 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.

There are loads of places to pick up a nice lunch to enjoy in the park (when the weather picks up), or you can grab the daily special from our onsite restaurant. The jerk chicken is always a big hit. We’ve also got access to a gym, table tennis, a library and coffee shop and loads more.

And why not get involved in the choir or one of the other great clubs and sessions that we regularly run? Or start your own?

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

What is our offer?
• We’ll reward you with a very competitive salary of up to £52,925
• You will be eligible for a pension with employer contributions of up to 10%
• We can offer you a performance-related annual bonus of up to 10%
• We’ll help you balance your life and work
• We’ll give you a generous leave allowance, with the option to buy and sell extra days

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.

Building our future

You’ll have access to a huge suite of training and learning opportunities to complement the new skills you’ll acquire on the job. You’ll get the chance to share knowledge with colleagues from across our digital communities, and to grow your skills through our coaching and mentoring programmes.
