Put your knowledge to the test in this fast-paced team.

 

As providers of world-class geospatial data and hydrographic information, the team at the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) are equipped to shape the face of navigational products and services. Our extensive expertise means that those in the marine industry go out to sea safe in the knowledge that they’re supported by systems and information that is of the highest quality, guiding them through every eventuality – and bringing them home again. It’s work we’re immensely proud to do, and now you can join our numbers, bringing your commercial knowledge of software development to this vibrant team.

 

With your work impacting on everything from environmental protection to resource exploration and utilisation, you will design and craft software solutions that will prove invaluable to our extensive customer base. As such, you will work within an agile team, producing first-class software for desktop, mobile and web. Constantly looking for ways in which we can improve our products and services – plus the way in which we work internally – you will also use automated testing and deployment to further raise our standards, collaborating with the development community.

 

Sharing your knowledge of tools and techniques with your team, you will have a solid grasp of relational databases and design principles and patterns. With at least two years of experience of crafting C# .Net code in a commercial environment, you will ideally have a good understanding of at least a couple of the following: Automated unit and system testing, ASP .Net MVC, WPF, Xamarin, Team Foundation Server and Cloud platforms such as Azure and VSTS. With good team-playing skills, you will be committed to furthering your own professional knowledge and that of your colleagues.

 

This is an exciting time for UKHO, in which we are pushing the limits of what we are capable of. Join us on this vibrant journey – and push your own capabilities in the process – and we can promise you a career trajectory that is exhilarating.
