Job Description

Manifest Software Solutions

Systems Integration Specialists (Housing and Local Authorities)

Manifest Software Solutions is the leading independent systems integration specialist in Housing. We build innovative integration solutions for all the main systems and are the preferred integration partner for companies such as Mobysoft, Fast Lean and Smart, PayPoint and Verseone.

Our primary focus is Housing; all our technical team have worked in Housing or for one of the large housing system suppliers. This allows us to work closely with our customers, talking through their requirements in detail. We believe that understanding the problem is the first step to successful integration.

Systems integration is at the heart of all we do, with each Integration Consultant leading their own projects. They work closely with our customers throughout the lifecycle of the project, from design through to implementation and even support after going live.

We are experts at finding the best ways to integrate systems. We use the latest tools including Microsoft Azure integration tools and our own Universal Adapter scripted integration toolkit. This combination of tools and skills allows us to seamlessly integrate Cloud based and on-premise applications. Our solutions are innovative, creative, and robust. We really can integrate anything!

Job Summary

You will join a small team of technical implementers that work closely with our customers to understand their integration needs. You will then use integration tools to design and implement robust, fully documented solutions. It doesn’t stop there; we continue to work closely with our customers by supporting their integration and ensuring the smooth running of the solution.

You will be part of a close-knit supportive team headed up by the Implementation Manager. You will also have direct access to other company resources whenever you need them, including Software Development, Customer Excellence and the Technical Director. This ensures you always have access to the resources and support you need.

This is an exciting role, ideal for someone who wants to take their knowledge of systems and systems integration to the next level. You will be given the opportunity to learn new technologies used in the world of integration; exploring web services and other technologies that will help you deliver powerful, robust solutions.

Our consultants collaborate throughout the day on regular project and team calls ensuring that, whilst having the convenience of working from home, you will feel the support of working as part of an office-based team.

Key Skills and Experience

You will have a friendly personality and enjoy helping people, coupled with some technical experience and a good working knowledge of at least one system used in Housing. You will be self-motivated, enjoying the satisfaction of seeing solutions you helped design, implemented successfully.

You will have ideally worked in an IT role or an implementation role in Housing. Your experience will include one or more of the following:

  • Business/systems analysis, requirements gathering
