The role

We're looking for a senior front-end developer to help the University implement a new and exciting digital communications strategy. You'll lead on front-end development, investigating, selecting and building on front-end technical solutions for our digital products.

What will you be doing?

You'll be as comfortable delivering high quality code as you will questioning the status quo and prototyping new services. You'll help shape the technology we use, and how it aligns with user needs and business requirements. You'll get the chance to work with and lead the development of a modern technology stack.

You'll be part of the University's Digital Communications team, a small but growing, high performing team of talented, agile professionals. We are dedicated to making a difference to our students and staff by building user-centred digital services.

You'll thrive using agile methods and enjoy working collaboratively with our user experience, design and content specialists.

Your first task will be as dev lead on the multi-disciplinary team building a truly user-centred Sharepoint intranet for our 7,000 staff and postgraduate researchers. This will be followed by the development of new and existing core products such as the online prospectus, student information and academic profiles.

You'll also be a senior part of the Digital Communications management team, assessing and advising and on our technology stack and recommending new solutions as we look to service increasing demands on our digital ecosystem.

You should apply if

You'll need excellent all-round front-end coding skills, including significant experience in Sharepoint. Also the ability to look forward, understand the landscape and make strong cases for change.

If you're a strong leader, capable of building excellent relationships, favour an agile approach, are proactive in getting things done and work diplomatically and influentially to do so, we'd love to hear from you.

In return, we offer a great package (including 40 days leave), a chance to make a real difference to our digital output and an exciting and thought-provoking working environment with inspiring colleagues.

Have a read of our blog and see the way we work and the kind of products you could be involved in.

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
