Job Description

Systems Developer


Technology is a cornerstone for Yorkshire Housing’s ambitions to become the most innovative housing organisation in the country. We are looking for a versatile and talented Systems Developer to join a small team of developers working with a range of applications and technologies to deliver high-quality software components that improve our performance and contribute to the achievement of our ambitious targets.


We’re looking for an all-rounder with experience delivering through the full software development life-cycle. You’ll be willing and able to learn technologies that you don’t currently know well. That said, you’ll have experience with at least one of the following technologies – Microsoft Dynamics, Microsoft SharePoint, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, PHP, .Net, C#.


You will be comfortable working in an agile environment, and since this is relatively new to us, you’ll have the opportunity to help us to improve our processes.


A passion for technology is essential!


Who we are:

We are proud to be a housing association that owns and manages more than 18,000 homes across Yorkshire and we’re developing thousands more. Our ambition is that everyone has the opportunity to live in a quality home they can afford and our team play a vital role in making this happen.


What the role involves:

As a Systems Developer, you will work with key stakeholders inside and outside of the business to:

  • Plan, design, create, amend, verify, test and document new and amended software components to deliver agreed business benefits within time, budget and quality targets.
  • Identify, create and apply agreed software development and security standards and processes.
  • Select appropriate development lifecycle model approaches based on the context of the work, such as predictive/plan-driven or adaptive/agile.


What can you expect:

In return we offer £42,776 for a 35-hour week, 25 days annual leave (raising annually to 30 days) plus Bank Holidays.

We believe in supporting and trusting our people to deliver, so you’ll be able to work flexibly in terms of time and location to suit your needs and also the needs of your team, your colleagues and the business.

We also provide a reward package to suit everyone – from a variety of retail discounts to a contributory pension scheme where we will match your contributions up to 9%! As well as our great benefits and a fantastic work environment, we’re also a company that cares about its employees and its customers.


Our values:

What’s more - we’re big on hiring based on our values and are looking for people who are committed to our company values, Respect, Reliability and Enthusiasm.


Why join now:

Yorkshire Housing is going through a major transformation programme - The programme will radically improve the way we interact with our customers, eliminate inefficiencies, and empower our staff to focus on the things that matter most to our customers. We want to make sure that our business is sustainable and that we're able to keep building homes for new customers, making repairs in the properties we own, and supporting customers to live in their home independently for longer. Transformation is across the entire organisation - it includes changing our processes, jobs, and how we work together, as well as introducing new technology.


So if you want to be part of a team that makes a real, positive difference every day and work for an organisation that prioritises its people and its customers then we want to hear from you!



This is a permanent, full time (35 hours per week) role based at Dysons Chambers, Leeds.
