Role Description

The Enterprise Systems Group at the University of York are looking for an enthusiastic and talented systems developer to join the team as an Identity Systems Developer. You will be part of a group that integrates systems across the University and creates bespoke applications to gather, manage and utilise the University’s data to support teaching, research and administration. 

The role will focus on the design, development and administration of our Identity Management platform. It is a senior position that requires a diverse range of development, administration and integration skills in a mainly Linux, Puppet and Java environment.

We are currently implementing a new Identity Management platform using ForgeRock IDM. This role will be part of a small team working directly on this project, and will play a key part in its design and implementation. It is very much a DevOps role, and a typical week may involve writing code, system configuration, debugging legacy systems, database design and writing automated tests.

To be successful you will need excellent system administration, programming and scripting skills, and the ability to pick up new technologies quickly. You will have significant experience in integrating systems and at diagnosing issues across all layers of a technology stack. You must be able to work effectively as part of a team and as an individual, and be friendly and enthusiastic.

For any informal enquiries about the role, please contact Chris Reeves, Web & Identity Systems Team Leader, 01904 323587,

The interviews will be in two stages. Candidates will be sent a technical test ahead of the interview date and asked to complete and return this. Test results will then be assessed and candidates who completed this to a satisfactory level will be invited to attend an interview.  It is anticipated that interviews for the post will be held on 15 February 2019.

The University is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community  – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds.
