DWP. Digital with Purpose.

We're looking for Software Engineers to join our DWP Digital community and write the code for products and services that will be used by millions of people, to help them access support, payments, and to get into work.

DWP is a huge organisation and we're taking on a once-in-a-generation digital transformation of welfare services used by every single person in the UK at some point in their lives.

So, if you've got the skills and the will, and you want to work on something a bit different, we'll be able to find you the right engineering challenge on the right project.

We're working at home at the moment because of Covid-19, and our offer includes hybrid home/hub based working.

Our pension offer is great too - with 27% pension contributions - so you can look after your own future while creating solutions that empower others to do the same.

Development. Work. Projects.

  • You'll build and run applications as part of multi-disciplinary agile teams with testers, architects, engineers, researchers and more
  • You'll make sure we focus on operational stability, robustness, resilience, availability and quality, and that we make best use of the latest tech and tooling
  • You'll change the face of public services, use innovative tech and thinking to transform the user experience, and solve unique problems
  • You'll work across a massive range of products and projects, transforming, building and modernising pensions, benefits, systems and services

What skills knowledge and experience do you need to show us in your application?

  • Open source technologies like Java, JavaScript, Node.js.
  • Developing on cloud based environments like AWS and Azure.
  • A good understanding of TDD and BDD.

  • Containerisation - tools such as Docker and Kubernetes.
  • The skills to build up a useful, robust automated test suite to support a continuous deployment environment.
  • Knowledge and experience of APIs, RESTful services and Microservice Architectures.

Details. Wages. Perks.

You'll join our teams in your choice of either Blackpool, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Sheffield.

We also all have the tech and tools we need to enable our people to work flexibly, and many of us are working remotely at the moment due to COVID-19.

We offer a competitive salary up to £50,792 and a brilliant civil service pension, and a generous leave package starting at 26 days (25 days annual leave plus a day for the Queen's Birthday).

We also have a broad benefits package built around your work-life balance which includes:

  • Flexible working, flexi hours and flexi days

  • Family-friendly policies
  • Time off volunteering and charitable giving
  • Bring your authentic self to work with 'I Can Be Me in DWP'
