This role will be involved in different tranches of the design, creation, testing and maintenance of the revamped system and you will be developing (ie. coding), configuring, testing and implementing software solutions in an Agile/scrum environment. As a member of the Agile squad, the backlog will be determined by the product management team, with a product owner working closely with your squad.

  • Excellent coding and digital development skills;
  • A relevant computing qualification/degree;
  • Operational knowledge of agile project and development tools;
  • Proven experience working in a development environment to design and build continuous integration & deployment capability.
