The role/Te mahi

We have an interesting opportunity for a Developer to join our team, working to improve and maintain the New Zealand Mortality Review Data Group systems. The New Zealand Mortality Review Data Group was created 18 years ago, and plays an important part in data collection and reporting aiming to reduce mortality for New Zealanders everywhere.

Built largely in PHP/MySQL/Apache, this is a great opportunity to use your existing skills as a developer and build upon your experience working within a large and complex database environment.

Skills and experience/Kā pūkeka me kā wheako

Ideally you will be an enthusiastic software developer who enjoys working with PHP – particularly the Laravel PHP framework. You should have exposure or experience with relational databases, and some Python scripting experience.

If you are the type of person that likes to work with interesting data and databases, with an interest in development then this is the role for you.

An example of some of the technologies you will encounter and skills you will utilise include: • PHP (Laravel Framework), JavaScript, Python, MySQL, MS Access. • The ability to translate user requirements into computer-based programs and systems to achieve client-focused business solutions. • Strong written and interpersonal skills. • A self-starter with the ability to work alone but also strong collaboration skills to work as part of many levels of teams. • Strong self-management skills and the ability to manage your time and priorities effectively.

About our Team/Mō te tīma

Our team looks after the data behind two of the five mortality review committees in New Zealand. These committees work to report on mortality data across the country to make recommendations to reduce preventable mortality in Aotearoa New Zealand. We have a team of research analysts and subject matter experts, equity advisory, as well as a team of three systems developers.

The University of Otago is one of the country's largest employers and we're here to stay. With a strong knowledge that it's our people that best set us up for success, and we'll promise you the same.

If you are looking for a move, you'll soon find Dunedin offers unrivalled access to the much-coveted Kiwi lifestyle balance. Enjoy the thriving buzz of a student city, where there's no shortage of things to do, (but a great pace- change from the hectic commutes) matched with easy access to adventure and scenery just outside of city limits.
