Are you a Software Engineer who puts people at the heart of your work? Do you believe that, in order for effective and impactful software to be delivered, its not just the code that needs to be developed but also the team members writing it? If so, we’ve an exciting opportunity to join our sector-leading, in-house Software Development Team.

Joining our highly valued team, you’ll step into a challenging and rewarding end-to-end role; designing, developing, delivering, supporting and maintaining our web and mobile software solutions across our sector-leading organisation. You’ll have the opportunity to work with colleagues across our organisation to define requirements, update on progress and deliver quality pragmatic solutions that meet organisational needs. Working closely with our Lead Software Engineer, you’ll also contribute towards driving the performance and professional development of junior team members; supervising, mentoring and leading them on assigned projects, to ensure we have the software solutions needed to best serve our customers and enable our colleagues to achieve our ambitious corporate goals!

We’re a flexible organisation that focusses on outcomes, meaning that you’ll have the opportunity to work from home up to 90% of the time.

Our ideal candidate? You’ll be a degree qualified software engineer with significant experience of mentoring and supervising other team members in the development and delivery of software solutions.

Importantly for a people focussed organisation, the solutions you develop must always have the end user in mind; so we’re looking for someone with excellent communication and stakeholder management skills, who can really get to the bottom of the end-user’s needs.
