CLOSED – Software Developer

About the role

We’re on the look out for our next Software Developer – could it be you?

At Simplyhealth, we’re on a mission to make good quality healthcare accessible to the masses and to do that, we need a great development team to support us along the way. We’re looking for an experienced  Developer to join us in not only making sure we can achieve our mission but to ensure the technology and apps that our customers interact with are as slick and modern as possible. We’re looking for Developers with a passion for technology and experience working in React on the front end and either C# or Typescript on the backend would really be the cherry on top!

We’re looking for someone who can bring both their experience and passion forward and proactively be involved in the development of software solutions based on the business needs. We work in an Agile framework so in this role you’ll help create a positive relationship within Scrum teams and work across not only the wider technology team but also into other teams including Product.


About Us:

This means depending on your role, there will be opportunities to flex when and where you spend your time to perform at your very best. For many of us this means day to day work can be handled remotely, but there will also be times when we need to come together in the office to collaborate, attend training sessions, induction, briefings and more. You might know it as flexible or hybrid working, for us it’s just another day living our best lives!
