System Developer/Administrator (Fixed Term)

We are seeking an experienced System Developer/Administrator, who will participate in creating IT infrastructure that will support the next generation of scientific discovery, as part of the Cavendish Laboratory's £300m Ray Dolby Centre project. Joining a local IT Services team of 13 people, you will become a member of the 6-person IT Infrastructure group as a systems developer. You will share responsibility for maintaining and improving our application and server infrastructure, including our locally developed digital signage and buildings occupancy systems (Python, Flask, Raspberry Pi), which are now used across 22 University of Cambridge institutions. Ongoing work also includes maintaining and developing our WordPress hosting service and other business support applications, as well as general server and network automation applications/scripts. Major upcoming coding projects include significant changes to our teaching information system, Jira Service Management integrations with rollouts to multiple business functions, and a variety of API work connecting third-party software and scientific systems together as part of integrated workflows designed for use in our new building. You will ideally have significant experience with web-based software development, preferably on Linux servers, where you can also act as a system administrator and troubleshoot application issues. We primarily develop systems using Python (Flask, Django, PostgreSQL) and PHP, using GitLab (CI/CD) within an Agile project planning approach supported by Jira Software. The nature of the role means some work onsite will be required, but hybrid working is supported. In return for your commitment to us, you would be joining a supportive department with an active commitment to building community, diversity and growth with flexible working practices, wellbeing initiatives and personal and professional development opportunities.
