We have already transformed our organisation, putting the public and best practice at the heart of everything we do. The work continues as CQC is undergoing a significant digital transformation. The Digital directorate will be overseeing delivery of our information management and technology strategy, setting out to overhaul our systems over the next few years. We are looking to strengthen our Digital function to deliver on our business priorities. Our core methodology and delivery approach will shift from a waterfall to an agile method. 

About the Role

As an experienced Senior Software Engineer, you will be responsible for designing, running and improving web application software as well as writing clean, secure code while following a test-driven approach.

You will plan and lead development on sets of related stories while working with other Digital disciplines to understand what needs to be built and have an understanding of the whole system and take responsibility for teaching this to others.

You will also be responsible for operating the production services that are built, including maintenance and support while looking for ways to improve system robustness, resilience and stability.

About You

You should be educated to degree level or have an equivalent qualification and experience with design, development, test and maintenance of web applications.

Specific Skills and Knowledge:

  • Experience developing systems following a microservices architecture, using SQL and NOSQL data stores.
  • In-depth knowledge and experience of including .NET, MVC and full stack development.
  • Excellent knowledge of C# including Object Oriented techniques and design patterns
  • Knowledge and experience of building and documenting RestFul API’s
  • Experience of modern JavaScript frameworks such as React or Angular
  • Good all-round web development experience, including awareness of best practices and standards such as accessibility, usability and web standards
  • Experience of delivering web solutions in an integrated environment, with an understanding of how to optimize solutions to gain performance and stability
  • Knowledge and experience of automation technology to support continual integration and continual deployment such as Jenkins
  • Demonstrable experience of working in multi-disciplinary Agile delivery teams

Furthermore, experience of Agile tools and processes (Kanban, SCRUM, Trello, JIRA, SLACK, Git etc.) and deploying and managing applications on a cloud platform (Microsoft Azure) as well as knowledge and experience of DevOps, including Configuration Management, Environment Management, Release Management Automation and IDAM services are highly desirable to be successful in this role.
