Senior Developer

Outwood Grange Academies Trust seeks a senior developer to develop and deliver software solutions to meet the needs of an innovative and expanding organisation.

The Digital Services team, in conjunction with our Data and ICT teams, provide bespoke solutions to track student attainment and behaviour, manage websites and automate business processes. Our systems are used daily by thousands of staff members and tens of thousands of students and parents.

The successful candidate will have a strong track record of delivering software projects and be comfortable participating in all stages of product development, from requirements gathering and design to implementation, testing, and deployment.

You’ll be joining a small but growing team and have the skills to take ownership of projects to see them through from inception to delivery. You’ll be working across the full stack from backend to frontend, and have a high bar for code quality and design.

We’re seeking a candidate with fantastic communication skills, capable of articulating complex concepts to stakeholders of all seniority levels. You’ll have opinions on good engineering practices and help to shape our processes as the team grows. We’re committed to developing junior and apprentice engineers, so you’ll have opportunities for mentoring and coaching early-career developers.

The systems we develop have highly variable usage patterns, so you should have experience delivering scalable solutions that maintain a positive user experience through significant spikes in user activity. Most of our current development occurs in Elixir with Phoenix, and we also maintain a suite of Ruby on Rails applications. If you’ve not got Elixir experience, don’t worry; we’re seeking someone with enthusiasm, a passion for learning, and an interest in working with these technologies.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic, driven professional to join our Family of Schools. You must possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference to the lives of our students and share our single goal of ‘students first’.

The closing date for applications is 4 August 2021.
