About the role
Jisc’s Software Development Group is a central resource that works closely with the different product families across Jisc to create digital products that meet their vision and users’ requirements.
Focusing on technical innovation and software delivery, we pride ourselves on building the right thing, and building the thing right.
We do this using agile methodologies, with continuous testing, architecting, integration, delivery and validated learning.
The postholder will perform a tech lead role and will line manage a small team of Jisc developers. You will lead elements of the design, architecture and development of high-profile programmes and will create and deliver a new software platform.
You will work closely with product owners and other stakeholders on the business side.
As a senior member of the Jisc Software Development Group, you will input into wider relevant standards and technical leadership across Jisc, encouraging a modern, agile approach to software, across the entire organisation.
You can expect to play a high-profile role in the technical career pathway (internal staff development channel) for software.

Our benefits are great too :
Connecting with each other is a doddle, thanks to our technology, but getting face to face is something we value and find time for when we can, so you may need to travel on occasion.
Our main offices are in Bristol, Harwell, London and Manchester.
