We are looking for a capable, enthusiastic and eager to learn student developer.

Working in ICT as a part of an agile development team you’ll be helping to deliver public services more efficiently via the web, call centre, and improving internal systems via our intranet. We work in 2-week sprints using Scrum and Azure Devops to plan our work. The systems we build are focused on lowering the cost of delivering public services and getting value for money for the tax payers of Nottinghamshire.

We work on a wide variety of the Council’s key applications including Mosaic and Firmstep and a number of different front and back end technologies. We use REST web services via WebAPI as the glue between different systems, and Aurelia/Angular, Core MVC, and Umbraco as our primary front-end technologies. Our version control, build and release pipelines are all handled by Azure Devops. We value adaptability, an ability to learn and a positive approach to the continually changing environment in which we work.
