About the vacancy

UWE Bristol’s digital mission is to ensure that we harness the opportunities of the digital age in the delivery of a personalised experience that enables our students and staff to thrive, succeed and flourish. To support this, the Digital Experience Project (DXP) aims to deliver a new, consistent and inclusive student logged-in experience in the form of a presentation layer/user interface. This will act as a single point of entry from which students will be able to access all UWE systems and services in a clear and intuitive way.

To deliver this digital experience, we are looking for an experienced front-end web developer able to take a leading role in shaping our approach to delivering excellent front-end user experiences.

The project is using a User Centred Design approach to ensure it meets the needs of students, and an agile methodology to ensure that the product is continuously improved and value driven.

From a technical viewpoint, the aim is to deliver a future proofed architecture that is more responsive and more able to adopt new technologies and approaches, to better meet the user need and expectations. It will take a decoupled approach to remove the dependencies between back-end products and services and front end user experience.

You will have experience working in an Agile software development team.

You are a motivated, effective team worker who is able to work independently and keen to continuously learn new technologies.
