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 Senior Engineers and Infrastructure Server specialists 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. In BPDTS a relaxed culture empowers our teams to focus entirely on the incredible outcomes we’re trying to achieve.

We know that better digital services in government will mean better public services, with the power to make a difference to lives of 22 million UK citizens. Our fast growing digital community is driving that change.

You and your role

We’re currently helping DWP to deliver one of the biggest and highest-profile digital transformation programmes in the world. We’re developing and maintaining products and services that will be used by some of the most vulnerable people in our society. As a consequence the work we do here is complex, challenging and rewarding. You’ll have the energy and positivity to motivate yourself as well as your colleagues in the team through any challenging times. They’ll do the same for you.

As a Senior Infrastructure Engineer you and your team will be responsible for supporting and maintaining infrastructure across the DWP estate. Your work will affect thousands of DWP users, who in turn provide services to millions of UK citizens.

You will have extensive experience within an infrastructure server support role in the past as well as experience in leading a team. If you are great communicator and problem solver and you’re comfortable with agile working you’ll fit right in.

Here, you’ll have the opportunity to work with wide range of tools and technologies such as Red Hat Linux 5 > 7.3, Windows Server 2003, 2008 and 2012, VMWare, Active Directory and will provide strategic leadership and technical subject matter expertise across infrastructure services and solutions.
