About the Role

Every business is a digital business. The Orbis IT & Digital service plays a key role in the modernisation of public services and supports the delivery of continuous improvements to quality and efficiency.

Over the last decade, Surrey County Council has faced unprecedented increases in demand to the services whilst government grants have reduced significantly. Digital Transformation will be one of the key themes to address financial and operational sustainability and the team plays an important role in helping the organisation do more with the limited resources available.

The Digital Innovation function offers development and data services, across 5 teams. In application development, the emphasis is on exploring business transformation opportunities, plugging gaps in functionality and improving user experience; less so on large-scale in-house application development projects. On the data side, the team plays a proactive role in provisioning and exploiting data. Significant modernisation of tooling and approaches has already taken place and further advances are planned for the areas of data analytics, integration and automation.

Development & Integration Services is one of the teams in the Digital Innovation function. This is a technical team comprising developers and integration specialists to reflect the modern design patterns in application development and integration, e.g. API development.

As a Developer Specialist, you will be responsible for leading the development, implementation and maintenance of complex business application components and/or APIs produced using a range of development tools. You will work with other developers in traditional and agile project settings to provide integration and development services to meet the strategic objectives of the business.
