Like to work on one of the globe’s boldest API Models?

Hi, Lee Hawksworth here. I’m looking for talented people to join our Software Developer Collaboration Team to work on our pioneering API Programme.

When we launched our HMRC Third-Party Tax Software and API strategy just over a year ago it was described as ‘one of the globe’s boldest moves yet’. Getting the strategy right is a great start - now we need the right team in place to help us deliver it!

Working with the nation's software developers, you'll help deliver and support HMRC's API Developer Hub, the APIs published to it and the software developers and organisations that consume them.

It’s not only an opportunity to work on one of HMRC's key areas of its digital strategy, it’s also a great opportunity to work for what I think is fast becoming a cool digital company!

That’s not just my view, but also these guys, and similarly here, or from a number of bloggers who have blogged on HMRC digital.

And now is a very exciting time to join HMRC. Although not all our teams work has been visible over the last year, we have been laying down the foundations of our strategy and the first APIs are now starting to move into production. The ‘Married Allowance’ API is a relatively simple API, but again, behind it are some pretty fundamental foundations that will allow us to move more APIs into production.

So yes, we're recruiting!

We are looking for people to join our team who can help develop, deliver and operate our APIs. Anyone can apply for these roles, including Civil Servants and Non-Civil Servants who would like to join the team. You’ll find all the details in the links below.

Closing date for applications is 25 November 2016. Good luck!
