We are looking for an experienced Software Developer to join our growing Web Services group to work on web-based software for the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR). At NETSCC we are responsible for the maintenance, modernization, and improvement of several NIHR platforms such as https: // as well as data-driven websites, and components behind the scenes.

Responsibilities include:

  • Design, maintenance, and retirement of software
  • Back-end programming and software administration for products built using PHP, SQL, shell scripting, Solr
  • Testing and deployment automation
  • Translating business requirements and UX Research findings into technical tasks and research viability
  • Mentoring and training colleagues
  • On a daily basis, you will primarily be working with the Development Team, the UX Designer, and the Technical Project Manager. You will also be working with the Product Manager, Product Owner and stakeholders, and our own suppliers.

    You are proactive, able to collaborate with colleagues, yet work independently on individual tasks, both technical and non-technical. You are a “no, but...” person who can critically evaluate work requests and if necessary propose alternative solutions to a given problem.

    You are expected to demonstrate your skills through relevant (work) experience or with certificates, diplomas, or degrees. You are not required to have experience with all listed responsibilities, and will receive the necessary support to grow your skill set during the job.

    Our work is driven by the UX Research we periodically perform on these products, as well as business needs from stakeholders within the NIHR.

    This role is 95% remote, but we require you to be able to travel to Southampton Science Park in Chilworth, such as for monthly team meetings.

    The University of Southampton is an equal opportunity employer and provides perks such as 30 days of Annual Leave, 8 paid public holidays, and up to 6 paid closure days, as well as a full-time work week of 35 hours.
