Are you ready to make a real difference to citizens of the West Midlands?

Be at the heart of UK Policing’s most ambitious technology transformation - use your technical skills to prevent crime, protect the public, and help those in need.

West Midlands Police is undertaking a period of unparalleled change and innovation; Technology is pivotal to both maintaining operational capabilities and building future success.

As the Senior Software Developer you will be working within the Delivery Management function, supported by the Development Team Manager. You will be responsible for leading and participating in the development of software solutions across a spectrum of project size and complexity. There will be an expectation for you to be a technical lead and bring extensive knowledge to the team, both in terms of existing technologies already in use as well as alternative methods which could bring about service improvement.

We'd really welcome your application if:

  • You have experience in acting as a Scrum Master on the delivery of software solutions
  • You have the ability to translate business requirements into software designs
  • You have extensive and up-to-date knowledge across a broad range of technologies, including those across the Microsoft web development stack and mobile app development

The community we serve within the West Midlands is fantastically diverse. West Midlands Police is an equal opportunities employer, meaning we value diversity and shape our workforce to best match and reflect the people we serve. You will be part of an already incredibly diverse and balanced team in terms of skill sets, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability status and ethnic background. The strong team ethos helps us deliver on our departmental mission statement in "Enabling WMP to serve our communities through innovative and empowering technology."
