The Opportunity


In your role as  Software Engineer – Platform Deployment, you will help us achieve our goals and deliver success on behalf of our customers by:

  • Working with customer-facing teams to build features and tools to making it easier for our Delivery teams to deploy and update ARIC for our customers 
  • Working with other engineering teams to ensure the processes for deploying and upgrading ARIC meet the needs of our customers and colleagues 
  • Taking part in the design and development of new features and tooling to support the deployment and upgrade of ARIC  

The Software Deployment team is an “enabling” team to ensure the smooth running of the deployment of new and upgraded versions of our ARIC platform. This involves working on tooling and components of ARIC to support these activities and ensuring that processes relating to deployment followed by Engineering and Delivery are clearly understood and communicated. 

This role can be based remotely across the UK, however living within commutable distance to our Cambridge office is a definite plus! If you’re based remotely, you will ideally be happy to travel to our Cambridge office several times throughout the year.
