University Information Services

Systems Developer (Fixed Term)

 

DEPARTMENT/LOCATION University Information Services
SALARY £34,233-£45,954
REFERENCE VC05028
CATEGORY Academic-related
PUBLISHED 22 December 2014
CLOSING DATE 31 January 2015

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.

The University of Cambridge is one of the world's leading teaching and research universities. As the University continues to grow and evolve this places greater demands on the Information Systems Division who provide centralised systems across the University.

This role is primarily to develop bespoke web applications in support of the University of Cambridge. The main customer is the Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) and much of the development work is performed in support of existing business processes. Whilst the role is that of a software developer, knowledge of systems architecture, project management, testing, requirements capture and modern web technologies are likely to be highly useful.

The management and support of the hardware and network infrastructure is done by a dedicated support team and is not part of this role. Experience of working with UNIX/Linux is desirable although system management skills are not essential.

The small ICE development team operates multi-application architecture primarily written in PHP, with both public and internal UIs, integrated using RESTful web-service APIs. This team works closely with users and business stakeholders to implement effective, high quality solutions through an iterative agile development process. We seek an experienced, adaptable and modern PHP application developer who will help to accelerate delivery without compromising quality during an important phase of development.

This developer will typically take responsibility for the full development life-cycle of each feature from establishing acceptance criteria through to back-end, front-end and test development, but will be in constant communication with both non-technical stakeholders and other developers to share feedback, ideas and experience.

Knowledge of Symfony2 or a similar framework would be especially useful, and an interest in any of B/TDD, DDD, CI, SOA or rich UIs would be advantageous, but an enthusiastic approach to quality delivery and best practice, along with a willingness to learn and share knowledge, are paramount. The successful candidate will have some opportunity to shape the role according to their skills, and will have an input into all aspects of the development process as part of a flexible team.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment and a security check.

Please quote reference VC05028 on your application and in any correspondence about this vacancy.
