You will also be exposed to, and participate in the creation of scripts and templates that automate the software delivery process, this may include but not be limited to: infrastructure as code templates using ARM, build and test automation scripts for both front-end and back-end code, and the maintenance of build and release pipelines within Azure DevOps.


About you

You should have demonstrable experience as a software developer working with production web applications.  You are looking for a new challenge working in a dynamic, ever changing digital landscape where collaboration between individuals, teams and clients makes a real difference to end users.  Your experience will be as a web developer with demonstrable knowledge of Umbraco, Microsoft ASP.NET Framework and/or .NET Core, but you will have a keen interest and some experience in the practices and processes needed to successfully and continuously deliver cloud native software, this will include: 

  • Source Control systems like Git

  • Build and deployment automation with Azure DevOps (Visual Studio Team Services) 
  • You will have a “secure by default” mind-set in all work you do, following guidelines and practices to improve the security of the solutions as well as advising others on those guidelines

You will also need to be: 

  • enthusiastic and motivated, with an appetite for learning 
  • a great communicator and natural collaborator 
  • a “big picture thinker” that can see and react to factors not directly related to code 
  • unafraid to ask questions 
  • adept at solving conceptual problems 
  • organised and good at prioritising work 
  • focused, with sharp attention to detail 
  • passionate about improving outcomes for clients and the end user

What you'll do

You will have a range of responsibilities and will be required to apply your expertise in many different ways. Here are some examples to give you a flavour of what you will do: 

  • work with the other members of a project team to define features and functionality for our client’s applications
  • focus on the Umbraco backoffice experience for the client to ensure that they have an easy editing experience
  • deliver maintainable solutions, while taking advantage of common design patterns and practices
  • contribute to a set of standards within the Umbraco setup to ensure that all projects share a common starting point
  • implement reusable software components and scripts that support both development and operational systems and processes 
  • debug and diagnose issues with applications and cloud infrastructure in a secure and compliant way
  • research Umbraco packages and evaluate new features within Umbraco to determine if and how they can be used in future projects
  • research and share knowledge of tools and technologies that can assist and improve how we build, deploy and maintain software
  • participate in our in-house (second line) support of applications you and others have built
  • provide support to other developers in relation to our DevOps processes and practices.  This could be assisting with the creation of a build script or the creation of an ARM template to provision application infrastructure
  • use our continuous build and deployment pipeline to rapidly deliver code during project development and when participating in support
  • assist in the maintenance of our continuous build and deployment environments
  • write and execute automated tests within our continuous build and deployment pipelines
  • help to produce and maintain reference and tutorial documentation related to our DevOps processes and practices for both technical and non-technical individuals
