As an IS team we are setting out to be more digitally focussed, using the latest technologies, whilst ensuring that our customers are at the heart of everything we do. Our strategy is set, our direction is clear. What comes next is to apply our skills and experience through brilliant team work to innovate, design, and implement systems that deliver real business value.
We’ve got an excellent team foundation to build on as our technical portfolio develops and expands; that’s where you come in. What makes us No. 27 in the UK’s Best Large Places to Work and gives us Investors in People Gold Standard? It’s our brilliant people and culture!
We have a fantastic opportunity for you to join us as our Full Stack Developer (known here at Home Group as an IS Application Developer). You’ll work closely with our current developers in our fully agile team. You’ll build high quality, robust and fully performing web solutions that conform to best practise and technical design. You’ll also play your part in making suggestions towards continuously improving our Digital Development processes. You’ll help us to build on and maintaining our clean code base and work to our technical release management. To us it’s essential that you’re a great communicator as well as being a team player!
About our team
You’ll work alongside our fabulous team who are passionate about building and delivering innovative Digital solutions using the latest technologies. To us were not just a team we’re a ‘work family’. Our manager is Taya, who has a passion for the gym, food and travel and ran the hottest ever recorded London Marathon last year. There are 9 of us in the team and we don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too! The Digital Development team is currently made up of developers, DevOps, UX and a Scrum Master. We work closely with our testers and product owners to form our Scrum teams.
A bit about you
You’ll have experience as a web developer and be able to develop futureproof and quality solutions using the latest technologies including React and Node. You’ll have knowledge in test driven development and web development tools. You will have experience in development best practise and working against Agile methodologies. With a customer focused approach you will recognise the department’s role as a service provider to the business, ensuring a high quality service.
Here at Home Group we believe flexibility works both ways. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours! It’s important to us that you’re in the office so we can work collaboratively and share best practices amongst the team. However there will be times, when you might work from home to concentrate on a particular piece of work. Throughout it’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off.
There’s lots! Including: competitive salaries, 25 days paid holiday a year rising by 1 day per year up to 30 days, with the ability to purchase an extra 5 days, a contributory occupational money-purchase pension scheme with life assurance, salary sacrifice schemes including cycle, car, technology, heavily discounted AA membership, gyms and savings on high street stores, holidays and restaurants amongst many others.
