We are on a mission to provide 2 million UK students the opportunity to be heard and see positive educational change as a result of speaking up and using their voice through our software.

With 10 institutions and 30,000+ student’s already using Unitu, we’ve only just begun.

As a small start up, backed by Jisc, now is the perfect opportunity for a self-driven, talented individual like yourself, to gain significant professional growth and to create massive and immediate impact towards our mission.

Your mission as a Software Engineer at Unitu is to innovate our product, solve complex challenges our users are facing and ensure our product road map is focused towards creating massive value to our customers and users.

You will come across so much variety in our development process that you’ll constantly feel challenged and excited.

We want only A players who have the passion, energy and desire to be excellent, learn new skills and be pro-active in creating positive change for the business.

Character traits are more important to us, because we know with the right traits, any skill can be learnt.[/cs_text][x_button type=”flat” shape=”rounded” size=”large” block=”true” circle=”false” icon_only=”false” href=”mailto:anish@unitu.co.uk?subject=Jr{3e23aea590cdbfb92ce59c8b77ad98773dd9db7c4b603cae8794c11fdcb9efee}20Software{3e23aea590cdbfb92ce59c8b77ad98773dd9db7c4b603cae8794c11fdcb9efee}20Engineer{3e23aea590cdbfb92ce59c8b77ad98773dd9db7c4b603cae8794c11fdcb9efee}20at{3e23aea590cdbfb92ce59c8b77ad98773dd9db7c4b603cae8794c11fdcb9efee}20Unitu” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=”” class=”applybutton” style=”margin-bottom:60px;”][x_icon type=”arrow-circle-up” class=”mvn mln mrs”]APPLY FOR ROLE[/x_button][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/2″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text style=”margin: 0.5em 0 2em;font-size: 1.2em;color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.5);”][x_custom_headline level=”h5″ looks_like=”h5″ accent=”false” class=”man” style=”font-size: 1.5em;color: #fff;”]How We Work[/x_custom_headline][cs_text style=”margin: 0.5em 0 2em;font-size: 1.2em;color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.5);”]

You will produce systems that go to live in rapid iterations and see how your development work can impact our business. We have a clear strategy, and we ensure this is underpinned by a clear tech roadmap and delivery plan. You will be instrumental in shaping the technology architecture and creating the 2 weekly sprint plans for delivery and implementation.

Our Unitu team operates pretty much a flat structure and encourages a healthy environment for ideas, solutions and we ensure we challenge one another as we seek out the best ways of doing things. We work in a customised Kanban process to transform quarterly backlogs into deliverable 2-3 sprints of work items.

As the lead developer, you will be instrumental in making sure the business goals are aligned with the developer work items.[/cs_text][x_custom_headline level=”h5″ looks_like=”h5″ accent=”false” class=”man” style=”font-size: 1.5em;color: #fff;”]Apply For Role[/x_custom_headline][cs_text style=”margin: 0.5em 0 2em;font-size: 1.2em;color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.5);”]Please submit an application with your full name as the subject, your cover letter in the main body and CV attached to anish@unitu.co.uk.
