Who you’ll be working with

The UK Government is one of the most digitally advanced in the world recently coming top of the 2016 United Nations E-Government and E-Procurement surveys. Despite the progress, citizens feel that the country works for those who govern and not for citizens themselves. People want a more responsive state, they want change and they want it at pace and at scale. UK government has a bold IT vision based on user centric design, Agile development, open source software, continuous delivery, infrastructure automation, cloud computing and a DevOps culture. What it needs is people to help put this vision into practice. What it needs is people like you.

You’ll be working for one of our major Public Sector clients. These include HM Revenue and Customs, Department for Work and Pensions, The Home Office, Ministry of Justice, Department for Education and the NHS amongst others with offices in Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Blackpool, Croydon, central London and many others. Working on site with a client can provide considerable benefits to a project such as faster decision making, reduced misunderstanding and closer collaboration but we understand very well that this has to be balanced with the need for flexible working.

The focus of your role
The Digital Architect has a key role in defining and delivering a Digital Government. You should thrive on variety and enjoy working across the full lifecycle of a project; help define a client roadmap, create a vision for a service, work with Agile teams to deliver, create an automated continuous delivery pipeline, work with DevOps teams to understand and improve the service in production. We want passionate, energetic technologists who can create solutions, work with clients, lead development teams and occasionally help with winning work. Join us and help grow our community of digital specialists, share ideas and innovate.
