University of York
Time for a change? Looking for a new challenge? As one of the UK’s leading universities, we’re looking for talented developers to join our highly collaborative team delivering software of real value to our staff and students.

We support our staff to learn new skills and as such would like to actively encourage applications from people who have the right attitude and aptitude even if you don’t think you can ‘tick-off’ every tool or technology we’ve listed below. For example, we’ve had developers join the team with backgrounds in Python, Java and C#.
Alongside a good understanding of modern approaches to application and data architecture, you’ll have a keen interest in development best practices and the tools that support it. In particular, we’re keen to hear from individuals with experience in some of the following areas:-
Equally important is your ability to quickly gain new skills across the spectrum of software development and integration.
