Vodafone UK is building a world class Digital Engineering team across London and Newbury to push the boundaries, whilst creating next level customer experiences, and we're looking for talented and imaginative engineers to join us for exciting new software development roles. 

If you own and solve technical challenges daily, refactor without blinking, challenge complexity and you get excited about being part of a community that wants to continually learn, adapt and improve, come and be part of something huge, we'd love to hear from you!

What will I be working on? 

We are currently in the process of decommissioning our legacy systems and using micro services architecture to create our own home grown systems. 

You will be part of our 4 tribes, where we are building new customer interactions using Java, Spring, Micro services, AWS, Docker, REST, OpenAPI and BDD via CI/CD and Agile delivery. 

We'd be especially keen to hear from you if you're passionate about TDD, have explored FP, and want to bring your engineering ideas to life on solutions that process millions of interactions every day. 

What will I be doing, we hear you ask. Well...

75% of your role will be hands on with our design and development of our digital platforms.

25% of your time will be dedicated to coaching and supporting around 6-7 engineers at different levels, passing on your knowledge and experience but also looking to pull out their innovative ideas and solutions.  

You and your squad will also be looking at continuous improvements and how we as one team can put Vodafone UK Digital in the forefront of our customers. 

It’s not just you: 

4 tribes – 43 squads – 300 employees working on our Digital platforms and we are expanding, with a plan to grow by 80-100 heads over the next 8 months. 

Your squad will be made up of:
Lead Java Developer (You) – 6/7 Engineers – 1 Scrum Master – 1 Business Analyst

  • Working in a fun, collaborate team of likeminded people. We love new ideas and solutions. If you have something to say, then say it! We have no reason to be quiet
