At LCP we love what we do, and it shows. We help our clients make good decisions based on insightful analysis, industry expertise, and game-changing technology.
We have an exciting opportunity for a passionate and skilled, predominantly back-end focussed, developer to join the small team that develops and supports our brand new system, "Pulse", to support our pension scheme clients.
What's the role?
At LCP we advise and support pension schemes. We have been developing "Pulse", our new cloud-based system for managing a pension scheme. It includes :
A portal for pension scheme members to look at the pension they will receive and model their options for when they retire.
In house tools for pension administrators to manage case work, manage member data to help them support pension scheme members
A portal for our clients (the pension scheme trustees) to monitor what is happening in the scheme
Integrations with payroll, back accounts and more to automate data flows and increasingly move to member self-service.
We have a track record of getting solutions to market quickly with developers that can work nimbly and discuss designs / functional requirements with non-technical end users.
We don’t, as a rule, follow specific development frameworks, but generally work in an agile way.
Pulse began development in 2019 and is now live with its first clients. It is fully cloud based (Azure) and is developing rapidly as we look to automate and extend our services.
Pulse is already the best framework in the industry, and we want to pull away from the competition with what we can go on to achieve with it.
