The Admiral Group is a multinational financial services provider, where data and technology take centre stage in delivering our products.

The Role

The role sits within a small DevOps team made up of Developers, Engineers, Analysts and Data Scientists. The team operates outside of core IT; our focus is on exploring and developing new technology choices and data sources that will further increase our capabilities in the machine learning space.

You will have a chance to make a significant impact on our success by building web applications for our support departments including Pricing, Telematics and Fraud.

About You

We are looking for an enthusiastic and curious individual, that can think creatively around a brief, and challenge when necessary. You must have a keen interest in web development and be ready to research and learn new techniques that can be applied to the task at hand.

We work in an agile environment and are looking for someone who can work independently and as part of a team, and someone capable of delivering to agreed timelines in a fast-paced and changing environment.

Responsibilities

You will be part of a multi-discipline team, challenged with building a cloud data platform, and will primarily focus on creating the web applications it will provide. This will include:

  • Development of the integration services within our cloud-based platform that serve web applications.
  • Development and publication of portals to support our data and analytics teams.
  • Production of technical and functional specifications where applicable.
  • You will also be expected to research new ideas and stay up to date with new advancements in the field.

Skills and Experience Required

  • Front-end web development experience using HTML, CSS and a JavaScript framework such as Angular, React or Vue.js.
  • Middle-tier programming experience using Java, Node.js or another object-orientated programming language.
  • Experience using database technologies such as MySQL, PostgreSQL or MS SQL.
  • Understanding of version control systems such as GIT.
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to tailor communication across a range of technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Experience working in an agile scrum team, using cloud technologies, and with test-automation and CI/CD tools is desirable but not essential.
