Overview: Software Engineer (12 Months FTC) job vacancy in London recruiting now
Employer: WELLCOME TRUST
Location: London, United Kingdom
Employment Type: Permanent
The Wellcome Collection is a free museum and library that aims to challenge how we all think and feel about health. Through exhibitions, collections, live programming, digital content and services, broadcast and publishing, we create opportunities for people to think deeply about the connections between science, medicine, life and art.
We are part of the Wellcome Trust, a global charitable foundation, established to improve health for everyone by funding science, leading policy and advocacy campaigns, and building partnerships.
We plan to spend £16bn over the next ten years, funding new discoveries in life, health, and wellbeing, and taking on three global health challenges: mental health, infectious disease and climate.
These challenges need the bold research our funding supports, but they won’t be solved by science alone.
We are looking for a Software Engineer who can help us continue to develop and improve our website. It’s where visitors can learn about upcoming events and exhibitions, researchers can search our catalogs to discover our collections, and readers can enjoy our writing and stories. Our website ties together every part of our digital platform, and attracts millions of visitors a year.
What will I be doing?
As a Software Engineer, you will be working closely with a multidisciplinary product team and with colleagues across Wellcome Collection to ensure the digital products you work on meet or exceed the expectations of our users and that diverse audiences engage with and gain a sense of belonging to Wellcome Collection.
Projects you work on may include:
- Building online guides to give visitors new ways to experience our exhibitions, such as audio or BSL interpreted content
- Improving our online collections search, to allow researchers to find more of our collections
- Creating a new way for researchers to browse and download born-digital archives
You will work with designers, software engineers, data analysts, content creators and stakeholders from across Wellcome to build feasible and valuable digital products.
Our services are written using React, Next.js, and TypeScript. You should be familiar with these technologies already.
We hope you’ll apply if you have:
Nice to have:
- Knowledge of good development practices, like version control, infrastructure-as-code, and continuous integration
- Practical experience working on web accessibility and the WCAG guidelines
- Experience monitoring and improving the performance of user-facing services
- Experience of Agile processes and product teams
We’ve tried to make the application process as simple as we can. To apply, please upload your current CV and complete our short application form addressing your motivations and telling us about relevant skills.
Salary: £60,700, plus our Benefits
Closing date: 6th July 22
Contract type: 12 Months Fixed Term Contract
We understand everyone has commitments and personal interests outside of work, so we strive to build a flexible working environment in which people can perform at their best. We are currently working two days a week (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) from our Euston Road offices as part of a hybrid working pilot (until September 2022) with the remaining three days either from home or in the office.
Diversity and Inclusion is a priority at Wellcome. We are committed to cultivating a fair and healthy environment, where everyone can be themselves and thrive. We are happy to discuss flexible working options for all roles. We work to ensure that our recruitment processes are as inclusive as possible to everyone.
