Consultant – Senior Consultant, Back End Developer, Defence and Security, Deloitte Digital, Consulting, London and Bristol
We love to code, and especially to create, so we’re hoping you’re going to join us and do just that. You will be the sort of person that knows that Agile and DevOps are engineering cultures, not methodologies and tasks for build engineers.
For us, developers are not people who are just fed specifications and sit quietly churning out code. As a senior member of our team, we need you to lead, guide, plan, explain, working alongside clients and other agency disciplines, cracking problems with a mix of technical expertise and innovative thinking. It’s how we outclass the competition and create the best digital experiences.
We are proud of the impact we have with our Defence and Security clients, the strength of our relationships, and the depth and breadth of our skills that we bring to help them achieve their mission – we are privileged to be asked to work with them at the heart of their biggest and most ambitious technology programmes.
Our Defence and Security customers care deeply about thoughtfully constructed and secure systems that are designed to be fit for purpose. Working with our design and development experts you will find that good software engineering is at the heart of what we do. As part of our team you’ll be responsible for developing cutting-edge digital solutions. You’ll work with some of the best developers, UX designers and strategists in the business, using digital to shape the future of how we live, work and play.

Build solutions as part of a DevOps and Agile ecosystem supported by tooling including Atlassian, Jenkins, OWASP and AWS componentry.

Help the client and end users to understand trade-offs when making product decisions and explain why you would do things a certain way.
Keep learning! We have a great community of architects and back-end developers who run workshops together, share the best articles they find on Slack, and contribute to the engineering culture.
Going beyond standard duties and responsibilities to champion small details, spot opportunities and add extra value for our clients.

Our team members work a variety of agile working patterns. Tell us what arrangement works for you and we’ll try to accommodate.
Your professional experience
Overall, you’re an ideas person and problem solver as well as a hands-on doer – that’s important. And you know it takes a mix of people to do amazing work, so you love collaborating with and learning from people with different skills, backgrounds and perspectives. If you have an interesting or unusual mix of skills yourself, even better.
We’re expanding fast, so we’re looking for people who are, by which we mean natural initiative-takers who bring out the best in others, are brilliant listeners and can grow our business without compromising standards, integrity or culture.
You’ll also have
Experience in software development and an evident passion for writing code.
Demonstrable experience and understanding of working in teams, particularly in agile methodologies such as Scrum & Kanban.
Your service line: Consulting
Our people and the way we work are the two things that set us apart in the consulting universe. For us, collaboration is fundamental to success, along with an unrivalled depth and breadth of expertise. We work closely with our clients and each other, at every stage of every project, solving our clients’ trickiest problems with a mix of knowledge, creativity and intellectual rigour. A hugely diverse range of clients rely on us to deliver the kind of change that adds genuine, lasting value to their business.
Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your “Immediate Family Members” are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm. The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process.

Being a Leader at Deloitte
Cultural fit and purpose-led leadership is crucial for Deloitte. Our leaders always set the example and inspire their colleagues. They make quality time for people and take an interest in them. They know what matters to people – both inside and outside work – and value them as individuals; always finding opportunities to develop them while showing respect and appreciation.
We expect colleagues at all levels to embrace and live our purpose and our leadership culture by challenging themselves to identify issues that are most important for our clients, our people, and for society and make an impact that matters. We know leadership comes in all shapes and sizes, but our Leadership Charter helps all of our people understand what we’re looking for:
We live our purpose: we act as a role model, embracing and living our purpose and values, and recognising others for the impact they make
We develop talent: we develop high-performing people and teams through challenging and meaningful opportunities
We drive performance: we deliver exceptional client service; maximise results and drive high performance from people while fostering collaboration across businesses and borders
We believe positive influence can make an impact that matters: we influence clients, teams, and individuals positively, leading by example and establishing confident relationships with increasingly senior people
We move, together, towards a strategic direction: we understand key objectives for clients and Deloitte, aligning people to objectives and setting priorities and direction
