Job Description:

Practice Unbound’s purpose is to create distinct and vital shifts in Primary Care: bringing people together, unlocking possibility and creating space for change

Practice Unbound is a service created by Here, a not-for-profit social enterprise based in Brighton, and 2017 “UK Social Enterprise of the Year”. When you commission services through Practice Unbound we reinvest in Primary care development.

Here was founded in 2008 and is a membership organisation owned by GPs, Practice Managers, nurses and staff. As part of Here, we believe in enabling people to take control of their health care journeys and we help change the way Health and Wellbeing services work so care can focus on what matters to individuals.

Over the past 18 months, we have developed an online portal accessed by GP practices across England, Scotland & Wales. We are now looking to increase the breadth of products offered and the current infrastructure is not best suited to this purpose.

In this role, you will work as part of a small, friendly Scrum team working on the transition of our existing platform from Symfony to React.

Your primary responsibilities will be:

• Developing new and existing functionality using the below technologies
• Acting as a member of the scrum team including developing close working relationships with the product team
• Bringing a “fresh pair of eyes” to the team and supporting successful development.
• Putting quality at the heart of everything you do

Skills Range:

Either experience of or a willingness to learn:

• Javascript- ES6, React/Redux or similar modern front-end framework
• JSON and RESTful services
• API development on Node or similar
• Experience with JWT based authentication
• MongoDB
• SQL Server/Relational database design
• Experience working in a SCRUM environment
• AWS or other cloud computing environment
• Experience with Mailgun API or similar

Working at Here

We work to ensure that our culture is one that allows everyone to come to work as their ‘whole’ selves. For most of us, work takes up a big part of our day. We want to ensure that it’s enjoyable and speaks to us on a level deeper than ‘just getting the job done’.

We are a friendly team of 12 who support our various business areas in their strategic objectives. Change is constant and we are on a journey to migrate much of our existing infrastructure to leverage cloud technologies.

There is a good degree of flexibility in this role in terms of working hours and location. We are based just opposite Preston Park which is convenient for both Brighton & Preston Park stations. The role could be partly home based but there would be an expectation to work from our offices as and when necessary.

We are looking to develop a working relationship that might extend past this specific project. This could extend to consultancy on a retainer basis should the need arise.
