Do you wonder if you are making a worthwhile impression in your current role? Would you like to know that your work can have a far reaching impact? Our client is globally recognised, and is at the frontline tackling problems in disease control and research. They are home to a specialised software team that provides in-house support through the development and deployment of web based tools and they are keen to hire.

This latest role is for an initial 2 year project, and would include the build of robust automated pipelines, interactive web platforms that work with complex data management, and new features for bioinformatic tools.


  • Degree in Computer Science or similar.
  • Demonstrable experience in developing modern web applications using a JavaScript framework (will likely have used several based on different past project requirements).
  • Some experience with building and testing RESTful Web Services and APIs in Python.
  • Familiarity using UNIX / Linux.
  • Broader technology experience with Docker, relational databases, Kubernetes or scientific bioinformatics would be desirable.

This is an excellent opportunity to work in a supportive environment, and see your contributions play a meaningful role in a global programme. Furthermore, you will have provisions for in-house training, and can develop further skills on courses. A big emphasis is in creating the right working environment, with the work-life balance being central to this (including a strong provision for families with young children or other dependents) and flexible working. These are all part of the excellent benefits package that come with this role.
