Push the boundaries of innovation with this challenging role.

 

When you combine a civil service role with a commercial angle, you get a unique working atmosphere that is quite unlike anything you will experience elsewhere. That’s because you’ll enjoy the knowledge that you’re doing something great for the UK and have all the support and benefits that come with a civil service position, with the added bonus of a dynamic business-focussed environment that encourages innovation and exploration. At the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO), this model is particularly important as we work to keep those in the marine industries safe, through high quality geospatial and hydrographic data and exceptional navigational products and capabilities.  And now you can join us, bringing your extensive software development knowledge to this fast-paced team.

 

In this enticing role, you will work with Agile to lead a team as they develop, fix and enhance .Net software for mobile, desktop and web. Leading software changes with your own extensive developing skills, you will also oversee automated testing and deployment infrastructure, inspiring an environment of continual improvement. This is a great role in which to really push the capabilities of UKHO, particularly as you will act as a task manager, thereby nurturing and enhancing the skills of more junior colleagues as you delegate work to them and ensure their time is being used appropriately.

 

With at least three years of experience of crafting C#.Net code, you will ideally be proficient in a few of the following: Automated unit and system testing, ASP .Net MVC, WPF, Team Foundation Server, and Cloud platforms such as Azure or VSTS. A natural leader, you will have commercial knowledge of build and release tools such as Team Foundation Server and you will have a thorough grasp of relation databases. A natural team-player, you will remain abreast of advances in the field, maintaining your own ongoing professional development.

 

This role has the scope to keep our extensive services specific to the needs of our customers, with technical glitches dealt with swiftly and imaginative solutions actively encouraged. If you’re ready to push the limits of what we’re capable of, join us today.
