The University of Lincoln is an ambitious Higher Education institution. The University was awarded Gold – the highest standard possible – in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework: a nationwide assessment of teaching quality across UK higher education institutions. It is also committed to growing student numbers, using new partnerships with external organisations and innovative forms of programme delivery. The School of Computer Science has played a key part in achieving this success, pursuing a blend of fundamental, applied and interdisciplinary research, with particular strengths in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Robotics and Autonomous Systems, and Human-Computer Interaction.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic Senior Software Developer to work with the Technical Support team within the school, supporting teaching and research across a range of computing based disciplines that include cloud, machine learning, robotics, networks and security, games, human computer interaction, and more.

The post holder will be responsible for the on-going support and development of bespoke software tools used in support of SoCS activities and the student experience, as well as identifying areas of opportunity for improvement of practices using software tools. This will include custom developments, FOSS solutions, and existing off-the-shelf products. Examples of existing bespoke software include an internal student management system, a network-based PC status reporting system used across the computing labs, and an augmented reality experience used for marketing the school.

As the software development expert within the team the post holder will also be the primary facilitator for working with academics to ensure workshop material can be run in the computing labs and working with students and academics to support effective teaching material.

While the role is primarily focused on software, the post holder will also be required to provide some hardware setup and support. This can be in the provision of equipment for research, or mass-rollout of lab support. In support of equipment and facilities additional duties include procurement, health and safety, and asset record management.
