My client Evergreen Life, are looking for a driven and dependable Senior Software Developer to deliver an ambitious roadmap of new products and features. Through your work, you will help to empower people to take control of their own health, wellbeing and fitness. Guided by data-driven insights, you will work with healthcare professionals to provide meaningful change in societal health.

Supporting the data science team, you'll help build a suite of products that enable users to manage campaigns and cohorts of clinical trial participants in a unique market opportunity. You'll work with academics, clinicians and customer engagement, as well as other developers from the wider organisation to deliver this first-of-type solution. We're in the process of upgrading and repurposing a legacy system as part of this journey, so you'll be keen to learn from the past and apply this knowledge in the production of a cutting-edge technology solution.

You'll join a devoted team, passionate about the work we do; we believe we're making a really positive impact on the world, and we feel pretty good about it. Expect lively discussion and camaraderie by the bucket-full.
Our vision of a great candidate is someone who loves solving technical problems and who focuses on delivering valuable features in our products. They'll love working within an open, supportive team from a wide range of industry backgrounds, enjoying spending most of their time working directly with teammates. Most importantly, they'll be eager to solve new problems and learn brand new skills, taking the opportunity to grow both themselves and the team they're in.
Here's what you'll get up to on a day-to-day basis:

  • Produce features for a modern, cloud-based software infrastructure
  • Deliver quality through test-driven development (TDD) and exploration of the work delivered by the whole team
  • Operate and maintain our platform in production
  • Collaborate with design and UX teams to deliver user delight
  • Collaborate within a skilled, cross-functional team to shape our products, and the technical solutions we adopt in order to deliver them
  • Actively contributing to technical decisions through discussions, whiteboarding, evaluations, and investigations
  • Operate within a value-centric workflow, where each work item is a valuable deliverable that you will take from specification through to deployment in production
  • Participate in knowledge sharing with the team
  • Aid the continuous improvement of the team
  • Work as a scrum master to drive frequent release iteration

Requirements The below skills are what you will make use of in your day-to-day work. Don't worry too much if you don't tick every box - we're mainly interested in how you work, not just what you know.

  • Web development stacks
