The Digital, Data & Technology Group (DDaT) Group is seeking a Lead Developer (SharePoint).

About the role

The University of Bath (UoB) is embarking on the next stage of its digital transformation journey. A key part of this is to transform the way in technology services are delivered. The Digital, Data & Technology Department (DDaT) is a passionate community of technical experts who provide digital, data and technology services that are accessible, relevant, and secure. We are motivated by helping people solve problems, be more effective in what they do today and innovating to raise the bar of what can be achieved in future. 

Significant change in service provision is anticipated and it is vital to have effective, proactive engagement with other departments and faculties. This will address a key improvement required within the Evolution project to develop and maintain strong partnerships with key stakeholders to deliver greater efficiency, coherence, cooperation, and coordination. 

The Lead Developer role sits within the Delivery & Operations pillar within DDaT. As a Lead Developer within the Platforms & Applications group, you will be responsible for the development, configuration, support and maintenance of software, applications, services, and integrations for a given technology area.

There is a market supplement of up to £6,000 available at our discretion, based on skills and experience.

About you 

You will be a subject matter expert and trusted partner working professionally and collaboratively with colleagues, business stakeholders, business analysts and project managers, to develop, configure, support, and maintain software, applications, services, and integrations that deliver the required business outcomes.

Capable of operating across a wide-ranging technology stack including SaaS, PaaS, Commercial off the Shelf as well as in-house custom developed, Lead Developers have the knowledge and skills necessary to take functional and non-functional requirements and to develop software systems to a high standard, working in-line with the agreed project portfolio while using and sharing good practices, processes, and methods.
