Welcome to your opportunity of a lifetime

London’s population is set to hit the 10 million mark by 2030. Keeping them, and the millions more who visit the capital each year, moving however, will be key if the city is to remain a world-class destination. That’s why, at Transport for London, we're already using cutting edge smart tech, network connectivity and big data to ensure we meet the challenges of the future head on. We’re calling it Project 2030 - and you could play your part in it.

You’ll influence the lives of millions

Join us, and you could be responsible for leading the development TfL’s websites and ticketing systems across one or more Scrum Teams. You’ll be responsible for ensuring that the teams are using best practices such as Peer Reviews, TDD, CI & CD to deliver software that’s used by millions of Londoners every day. We’ll rely on you to develop very high throughput web and Mobile applications deployed in AWS and Azure.

You’ll have the opportunity to work with your peers to ensure that TfL is using the right technologies in its Websites and you’ll be responsible for managing and mentoring between 5 and 10 other developers.

You’ll be involved in activities such as Refinement, Sprint Planning, Estimates, Retrospectives, Demos and the Daily Scrum. You’ll also work with other Scrum teams using Large Scale Scrum to produce coordinated and integrated high quality working software.

In order to be successful you’ll be an expert in either Full Stack or Front End Development with proven experience of working on large scale Web systems in a high throughput, agile environment.

You’ll get to use every bit of your expertise

Constantly look for better ways to develop and deliver software, you’re highly focused, resilient and a real source of inspiration for others. What's more, you have an excellent knowledge of Agile/Scrum C#, Javascript, CSS/HTML, ASP.NET, MVC & WebAPI, SQL Server and Windows Server 2008R2/2012, with T-SQL, XML useful. Experience of using Azure or AWS and developing high volume systems handling thousands of transactions per second are also must haves.

You’ll have experience leading and managing other Developers. And, if you can bring excellent communication skills and a flair for analysing complex systems and coming up with effective solutions to problems, you're definitely someone we'd like to talk to.

We’ll reward your expertise and achievements

In return for your expertise, along with being excited at the thought of being able to help make London the ultimate technologically smart city, we can offer an excellent benefits package including final salary pension scheme and a generous holiday entitlement of 30 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays. You can make significant savings on travel thanks to a free Oyster Card travel pass; 75% discount on national rail season ticket and interest free loan; and discounted travel on the Eurostar. You can also choose to take advantage of a discounted private healthcare scheme, tax-efficient childcare payments, and a host of retail, health, leisure and travel offers.
