Solutions Developer (Planning Office)

University of Leicester - IT Services

Contract Type: Fixed Term Contract until 31st July 2019

Together our staff and students are discovering innovative ways to change the world for the better and there has never been a more exciting time for you to join us. We are ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide and have an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research. We are led by discovery and innovation, with the synergy between research and learning at the core of our activity.

An excellent fixed term contract opportunity has been created within our IT Services department for a Solutions Developer (Planning Office) to join their team. As the post holder, you will be an experienced database developer with a detailed knowledge of relational and multidimensional database techniques (possibly having utilised formal methods such as Kimble). Your experience of large scale systems such as SAP and SITS makes you the “Centre of Excellence” for all data and information held within IT Services Solutions. You are as comfortable translating business information needs from non-technical colleagues as you are supporting the needs of highly technical development teams. Your knowledge and experience developing and performance tuning database solutions give you credibility amongst your DBA colleagues in applications services and operations.

As the successful candidate, you will have demonstrable experience working in a complex IT organisation with a software development background. You will also have experience of working on projects through the whole life cycle from requirements analysis through design, coding implementation, testing, system implementation and support. This role would be ideal for an individual who has experience of working in a highly solution integrated environment and can demonstrate excellent analytical skills and problem solving ability. We look forward to receiving your application.
