dxw digital is helping public sector teams to make good technology decisions and build better services.

We’re looking for permanent, full-time senior developers to join our team at dxw digital, building software and services for the public sector.

The role

This is a hands-on coding and team coaching role. As a member of the dxw digital team, you’ll be guiding the development of web applications and services in multidisciplinary project teams. You’ll work alongside other developers, user researchers, visual designers and content designers from dxw digital and often product owners from our clients.

We work in an agile way and hope to inspire our clients with our practices. You’ll sit with clients as a team when writing and prioritising work, and at times co-locate to clients offices to build the products.

We like and use Ruby, Rails, PHP, WordPress, Laravel, Javascript, PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch, Git, RSpec, AWS, and Docker.

We use extensive code-reviewing through pull-requests to communicate and to share skills and knowledge.

You:

  • are proficient (5+ years’ experience) in some of the technologies we use and happy to learn about the others.
  • are keen to lead technical teams and mentor team members
  • are happy liaising with clients, for example, presenting a technical architecture.
  • are comfortable in a highly collaborative and communicative workplace.
  • are keen to share skills and knowledge of agile development practices.
  • enjoy writing high-quality software collaboratively
  • are already a keen practitioner of secure coding practices (though all developers receive security training).
  • care about helping the public sector build better services.

Salary & terms

From £60,000-£80,000, depending on experience.

Details of our Benefits & Perks can be found at the bottom of the dxw digital Jobs page.
Our public sector work means that appointments will be made subject to a background check.

Apply online with your cv and a short cover letter on why you’re interested in the role and dxw digital.
