Job description

The Cloud Solutions Developer role plays a key part in the team to deliver an effective and efficient service to all areas of the organisation, achieving high levels of customer satisfaction and the highest quality in client delivery. This is a role focused on the design and development of innovative, re-usable and highly maintainable software solutions, with you showing a sound application of software engineering principles and the software development lifecycle.

This will be achieved by both working on your own and with the wider team to understand and interpret requirements and then provide technical options on how to best meet the needs of the business. You will then build, unit-test and document the agreed solution. It will also require the ability to work closely with the wider application team, problem solving skills and the ability to interrogate existing technical solutions to understand and resolve live issues.

The role will include support for major programmes of work and a variety of smaller discrete projects. Our Microsoft technologies cover the entire Office 365 suite (including the Power Platform), Dynamics 365, SharePoint Online and Azure technologies (e.g. Application Service Environments and integration tools). We encourage the exploration and use of the full Azure suite to create innovative solutions to meet business needs.

As a team, we are passionate about technology and provide the opportunity to learn and work with the latest tools in Azure, providing help to work towards Microsoft certifications. Our team has a flexible hybrid approach to working, with our Melbourn office near Cambridge as your base office.
