Working as part of a wider team of 7, where you will be fully supported in your duties, the role of Principal Developer will be integral to the team.

Produce and support high-quality code, adhering to security by design principles, that satisfies customer needs and strives for simplicity, clarity, testability and promotes reuse.
Take a primary role in the maintenance and support of developments operated by the team, proactively monitoring performance and resolving issues.

- Experience in Complex SQL e.g. Oracle SQL & PL/SQL.

- Experience of contributing to testing.
- Ability to work with different stakeholders, excellent communication skills and excellent analysis, fault-finding and problem-solving skills.

The university is moving from Enterprise Service Bus to Microsoft technologies across the next 18 months so you will have the opportunity to be part of a large migration.

This is a role where you will have the opportunity to work as a senior member of the team leading on your own remit and given the autonomy to deliver on your duties and responsibilities. This is a hybrid on site role with the role holder needing to come on site on an as and when basis - there is a huge amount of flexibility around being present on site however.
The role offers excellent benefits including 33-35 days annual leave with additional closure days across the year and a generous pension scheme, staff parking and discounted travel, recreational facilities use (gym membership / food on campus scheme), discounted learning at the university plus many more great benefits.
