Today’s criminals and terrorists are more technically advanced than ever. As their methods change and evolve, Law Enforcement agencies must keep pace with digital progress to anticipate and neutralise threats. This pioneering work happens within Counter Terrorism Command – SO15’s TIDE, our Technical Innovation & Development Environment. And it’s here that you’ll be innovating as a Digital Specialist in Software Development.
In this uniquely challenging setting, you’ll use your skills to help prevent terrorist attacks. If the worst happens and an attack occurs, you’ll be helping to bring the perpetrators to justice. As a Software Developer, you’ll provide both tactical and strategic solutions to support counter-terrorism operations, working in a team with other software, hardware and cyber specialists. Together, you’ll create bespoke solutions, and also plan and prepare for emerging technological challenges. Your role could see you working with security partners both at home and abroad – and even supporting operations directly. You must therefore be prepared for extensive travel within the UK and further afield.
This exciting and varied work calls for a degree (or equivalent) in a STEM subject or experience in software development. Your expertise will cover some of the following areas:
· .NET (VB, C#, ASP.NET, .NET CORE)
· MVC Framework
· LAMP Stack Development
· Working experience of Docker/containerization technologies
· Mobile and/or Desktop App Development
· SQL / SQL Server
· NoSQL technologies (PostGres, ELK, mongo)
The only way to protect the country is by working together to meet the next technological challenge. You will therefore need the people skills to collaborate with experts from policing, government, academia, industry and the intelligence services.
To apply, please visit our website to download a role specific information pack and click on the link to complete and submit the online application form. You will also be required to submit a detailed CV and a personal statement.
The nature of counter terrorism means that the post requires access to the most sensitive intelligence material on a daily basis. Applicants must hold or be prepared to undergo Developed Vetting (DV) before taking up the post. In approved circumstances dual nationals (of which one element is British) may also be considered.
Completed applications must be submitted by 23.59pm on Friday 15th July.
Failure to supply all the relevant documents will result in your application being terminated
