Take your career to the next level with UKHO.

With our clients ranging from the Royal Navy to commercial sea-faring customers, the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) offers a dynamic and inspiring working environment. Providing hydrographic and geospatial data, the basis of our work is to keep those in the marine industries safe and to provide a level of information that ensures we are fully aware of nautical changes and challenges, providing solutions and offering support wherever possible. As a Civil Service with a commercial slant, it’s a great place to further your career, particularly if you’re as passionate about software development as we are.

 

Working in an atmosphere in which your software will be used not just by those navigating at sea, but for scientific research, economic development and even defence, this is a great role for someone who has coding in their blood. As such, you will be coding in Java, plus other ‘big data’ technologies. Developing software for mobile, web and desktop, you will work cohesively with other developers to enhance what the business is capable of, seeking to maintain and improve our standards and capabilities wherever possible. This will be further enhanced by your active use of automated testing and deployment, and your commitment to furthering your own knowledge with continuous professional development opportunities.

To thrive in this challenging arena, you have a minimum of two years of experience of designing and crafting software in C# .Net and Java in a commercial role, with a good understanding of relational databases. With a solid knowledge of design principles and patterns, you will work closely with colleagues, offering mentorship and support wherever possible, and your natural leadership skills will ensure the whole team is striving to achieve the highest standards.

If you’re ready to embark on the next stage of your career in an environment which champions creativity and innovation, then we’ve got a role for you. Join us today – together, our possibilities are limitless.
