Talented Senior Programmer Analyst? Keen to work on the latest Microsoft technologies? If so, then we'd love to hear from you!
We have a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Programmer Analyst to join our Software Support team, supporting a range of Microsoft technologies and line of business applications used within Social Housing. Working closely with a team of Technical Analysts and Applications Manager, you will be trusted to provide innovative solutions to underpin business initiatives, as well as providing support to assist the business with its IT operational needs, applications development, enhancements and coordination of upgrades in a busy customer focussed environment as well mentoring junior members of the team.
Your work will be vital to our department. In this role you'll become the go-to person in the team to ensure the service we deliver is excellent and cost effective. We'll trust you with a wide range of tasks from investigating and troubleshooting incidents (particularly for maintaining bespoke applications in C#, VB.net and SQL), processing services and change requests, to managing incidents throughout their lifecycle as well as lead on complex IT projects. An understanding of agile development environments, an understanding of complex housing processes, creating data loaders, maintaining scheduled jobs, interfaces and further integration capability to software in the system estate is an advantage, along with proof of concept activities as and when required.
For this reason, you'll need to bring the skills to match and therefore we require someone with a general awareness of IT corporate infrastructure, together with effective communication and team skills, and the ability to take a holistic view when designing solutions. The ability to multitask, work to tight deadlines and prioritise own work is also essential.
You will also work with a range of third-party suppliers, internal departments and other stakeholders with diverse IT needs and requirements, so we'll expect you as a senior to lead and build strong relationships across all business areas.
Our culture of innovation means your ideas and enthusiasm on how to improve our service will be welcomed and most likely implemented. This role will be both challenging and rewarding. You'll be highly motivated, with experience of working in a customer facing role. You'll also enjoy finding new ways of doing things and are comfortable explaining recommendations. Experience of providing 2nd and 3rd line support for Microsoft applications within a Service desk or Application Support environment would be advantageous.
If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
