Working with doctors, working for patients

Senior Web Developer

 

Play a leading role in developing bespoke web experiences at a unique organisation.

 The General Medical Council (GMC) helps to protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and doctors. We support them in achieving (and exceeding) those standards, and take action when they are not met.

As Senior Web Developer, you will join us at an exciting time. We are keen to redevelop our website. We are also ambitious to do more with important digital services including the List of Registered Medical Practitioners - an information resource about doctors, accessed by medical bodies and the public. You’ll bring expert knowledge of the latest web technologies and languages.

As one of two full stack web developers on this project, you’ll develop delightful web experiences. Your responsibilities will range from writing high quality code and automated tests, through to building up investment in Continuous Delivery. Along the way, you’ll work closely with UX&D and BA colleagues to make sure every solution meets the needs of users and stakeholders.

Self-motivated, innovative and extremely productive, you’re also an open and communicative collaborator. We’ll expect you to make a positive contribution to good team spirit in a deadline driven Agile environment, with rapid release cycles. So a track record of following Agile (particularly Scrum) software development methodologies and practices is essential.

Ideally, you’ll bring experience of extending a top CMS, as well as carrying out bespoke web development. You’ll certainly demonstrate expertise spanning .Net, C#, HTML, JavaScript, CSS, MVC, Visual Studio, Unit Testing, SQL Server, WebAPI, RESTful, SOAP and WCF.

In return you’ll benefit from being part of an organisation that is genuinely committed to its people.  We offer an attractive salary and benefits package including the opportunity to work flexibly and from home one day a week for most roles, as well as a generous annual leave allowance (with the option to buy or sell leave), a defined contribution pension scheme, private medical insurance, health screens, interest free ticket loan and exclusive discounts.  Tax saving schemes enable you to reduce the cost of childcare through our childcare voucher scheme and the cost of buying a bike through our cycle to work scheme.
