FutureGov is looking for an experienced Full-Stack Developer to help us on our mission to design public services fit for the digital age. 

We believe citizens deserve access to user-centred products and services, delivered by modern, digitally-enabled organisations. We are looking for a Full-Stack Developer who is pragmatic, with experience across various technology stacks. This is part of a pan-european piece of work FutureGov are doing with one of our international partners, collaborating with various european cities.

The scope of this phase of work will include the technical and design build of a reimagined or newly designed service in each city. Teams have progressed through discovery and alpha phases over the course of 2020 and early 2021.  We will be working from discovery and alpha findings, testing assumptions and designing for user needs i.e. with a clear understanding of user needs for each of the services in each of these cities. Cities will be moving through private beta-public-beta-live services from January-October 2021.

We’re an inclusive employer, and we care about diversity in our teams. Let us know in your application if you have accessibility requirements during the interview. If you’d like to understand more about inclusion at FutureGov, contact Faith.
