Who we're looking for
An experienced lead developer (10+ years) who is ready to take the next step in their career to drive the design, implementation and adoption of Cloud collaboration technologies.
About Schroders
We're a global investment manager. We help institutions, intermediaries and individuals around the world invest money to meet their goals, fulfil their ambitions, and prepare for the future.
We have around 5,000 people on six continents. And we've been around for over 200 years, but keep adapting as society and technology changes. What doesn't change is our commitment to helping our clients, and society, prosper.
Technology at Schroders
There's a huge amount of change going on at Schroders. Technology's shaping our business more and more, so there are many opportunities waiting to be grabbed.  And because we're a big financial player, we can put hefty backing behind good ideas.
We're a serious business - we have enormous responsibilities to our clients and shareholders. But just because we're suited and booted, that doesn't make us stuffy; our tech teams are friendlier and more informal than you might expect.
The base
We moved into our new HQ in the City of London in 2018. We're close to our clients, in the heart of the UK's financial centre. And we have everything we need to work flexibly.
The team
The Employee Collaboration team is part of Schroders' Global Technology and Change Division.  We use SAFe Agile practices to work closely with our business stakeholders and deliver workplace collaboration solutions that meet their needs.
What you'll do
Your role will initially focus on the delivery of SharePoint Online / O365.  Following the successful launch, you and your peers will continue to deliver functionality enhancements to our users, whilst decommissioning our existing SharePoint on-premise stack.  
You will be involved in every aspect of solution delivery, including solution analysis, design, technical development and implementation, stakeholder engagement, and user roll-out.
We are working to establish a low-friction delivery pipeline to meet our goals, and so experience in similar environments and DevOps practices is a must. 
The knowledge, experience and qualifications you need
    End-to-end delivery of SharePoint solutions and enhancements
    Collaboration with peers from Infrastructure, InfoSec and business functions
    Integration of third-party vendor customisations and add-ins
    Automation of processes, deployments, and system migrations
    Solid SharePoint 2016 and Online / O365 development expertise, with in depth knowledge of SharePoint 2016 On-Premise Add-In model
    Experience developing / deploying SPFX applications
    Experience developing applications using 0365 Power Platform (PowerBI, PowerAutomate, PowerApps) and MSTeams
    Knowledge of using Nintex to develop workflows
    Previous experience of SharePoint migrations (on-premise to on-premise and on-premise to Cloud)
    Knowledge of AvePoint Migration and Governance Automation Tooling (on-premise / Cloud)
    Experience using a broad range of vendor tools for system deployment, testing, migration, monitoring, and debugging
    Experience of automating processes in a CI / CD environment via PowerShell
    Familiar with git version control and common branching strategies
    Familiar with UI languages / frameworks such as jQuery, JSON, CSS, JavaScript
    Experience working in Agile delivery environments and facilitating development backlog estimation
    Excellent communication skills 
The knowledge, experience and qualifications that will help
    Experience working with Middleware and Implementing Interfaces (.NET Core, WCF, REST, JSON, ODATA etc.)
    SharePoint 2016 Architecture, Object Model and APIs
    Experience of leading and mentoring more junior developers, ensuring work is delivered in a timely fashion
    Ability to step into the Capability Lead's shoes to represent the team with other technology colleagues, business stakeholders and vendors when required
    Ensure Employee Collaboration technology alignment with the Enterprise Architecture vision during prioritisation and throughout delivery. Provide the technical leadership to the team
    Support the Capability Lead to balance and refine the backlog to ensure that delivery of technical and architectural enablers are appropriately prioritised. 
What you'll be like
    Friendly: people the world over like working with you, and they're never afraid to ask you for help
    Curious: Interested in the latest tech developments, and how you can use them
    Calm: you're positive under pressure and happy to take the lead in challenging times
    Gutsy: you know ‘good' isn't good enough. So you solve problems and challenge the status quo to find better ways to do things.
We're looking for the best, whoever they are
Schroders is an equal opportunities employer. You're welcome here whatever your sex, marital status, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, religious belief or age.
