We are Cambridge University Press & Assessment, a world-leading academic publisher and assessment organisation, and a proud part of the University of Cambridge.

We are recruiting for a passionate Senior Software Engineer who will be part of our Exam Technology Team.  The role will play a key part in supporting and developing ground-breaking platforms for producing assessment materials.

Why should you join Cambridge?

Our mission is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence. Which is why every year, we give vital support to millions of people in more than 170 countries around the world. From teachers and learners to researchers and academics, we help to build confidence, unlock potential, and enable success. We give people the opportunity to show what they've learnt, we spread knowledge, spark enquiry, and aid understanding.

We achieve this by embracing change, and continuously focusing on our customers' needs. And by collaborating, and carefully listening to our customers and to each other, we keep moving forward, keep innovating, and keep finding newer and better ways of doing things.

When you join Cambridge, you get the best possible combination of a supportive, caring environment, balanced with work that brings out the best in you. You will have access to learning and development opportunities, and business tools essential for your role so that you can perform at your peak.

What can we offer you?

We have 50 offices worldwide, with ten major ‘hubs.' In this role, you will collaborate with teams in different functional areas whose systems and services are truly global.  It is an opportunity that will enable you to widen your horizon by learning from other cultures.

The role is pivotal to the success of technology services for the organisation, and there are no limits to the opportunities afforded to work with new and exciting technologies and highly talented people.

On top of these, working with Cambridge will also give you stability. We show our care for our people by allowing them to grow not just professionally but also personally. We promote work-life balance through flexible work schedules, hybrid work arrangements, and generous paid leaves. In addition, you will be entitled to our health care benefits with coverage for dependents, group life insurance, and robust wellbeing programs right on the first day of joining us.

What will you do in this role?

You will design, develop, and secure the software application from formation to completion. Often deal with the infrastructure design and programming, research and development, and explain programming duties to other members of the technical staff working on the application. This includes managing and directing technical staff to complete the application correctly, and assisting with problems or technical issues that may arise. You will also mentor, explain business processes to other programmers and technology restraints to non - technical business owners.

Your other key responsibilities include:

  • Turn business feature requirements into solutions
  • Estimate, implement, developer-test features, and analyse the impact of changes on existing code
  • Consider supportability and maintainability when designing, and adhere to team standards, web standards, and best practices
  • Report progress and issues that affect successful delivery immediately
  • Work independently but also within a multi-disciplinary delivery team

What are the qualifications?

The ideal candidate should have solid software development experience with an aptitude for testing, leadership skills and a community builder through taking part in COPs/guilds and external software test/developer communities.

In addition, experience, knowledge or expertise in the following are an advantage:

  • 4+ years' experience in a related job role
  • JavaScript, Typescript, Angular 2+, HTML, CSS, RESTful APIs
  • UI design frameworks (ideally Bootstrap) and understanding of UI/UX design principles and best practices
  • Experience with continuous integration
  • Experience with working in an Agile team
