At the Home Office, our task is simple - to keep the UK safe. Doing this means working across a huge range of projects, dealing with some of the most high-profile and important issues the country faces. But protecting millions of people requires cutting-edge technology platforms and exceptional engineers who can expand our capabilities. If you're talented, tenacious and forward-thinking, you'll find yourself in good company. Join us at the heart of government, take advantage of huge opportunities and help us build an unrivalled department.
You'll take a central role in developing our core products, working across a number of exciting initiatives that are defining the way we'll work for years to come. Based in our Sheffield Delivery Centre (SDC), you'll also take on brand-new ‘greenfield' projects, writing clean, secure and open code following a test-driven approach. Under the guidance of senior colleagues, you'll work with other engineers to evolve new solutions, or incrementally improve live services, constantly improving our solutions and the way we work alike.
You should already have proven mid-level development experience in an agile, multi-disciplinary environment. You should bring good experience in a core language (Java, JavaScript, Python or C# being top of the list), and we would expect that you have developed an expertise in one of these alongside an environment such as Node or React.  However, we have an opportunity to give you the space to grow as an engineer - so the focus may be able to shift now or in the future.  
Whatever your role at the Home Office, we'll support your career plans and evolve your skills with exceptional tools, training and coaching. There's also a wealth of opportunity to move around and work across different teams. As a Civil Service employee, you'll be entitled to a wide range of benefits, including generous annual leave, flexible working, childcare and travel allowances, numerous staff networks and clubs, onsite facilities and a Civil Service pension.
