Join the DVLA as a Software Release Engineer, and you’ll help build world class digital services, as part of the transformation programme that’s migrating legacy technology onto new, cloud-based platforms. 

As a Software Release Engineer, you’ll follow and contribute to the development of documented application release and deployment processes – ensuring that all changes are deployed into DVLA IT environments in the least disruptive manner. This will include developing configuration management standards, policies, procedures, work instructions, scripts and tools.

Your role will also involve adhering to best practise in software configuration management; monitoring technology performance; and identifying opportunities to improve performance – facilitating large and small changes alongside the development community. 

We’re looking for Software Release Engineers who have experience in establishing, governing and running software configuration principles and practices; generating software builds; and deploying releases in complex controlled environments. You’ll have experience in application lifecycle development within an enterprise environment, as well as experiencing using software configuration management and software build tooling. You’ll also be available to understand out of hours activities, to support release deployments.

Besides the rewarding nature of playing a key role in a major transformation project, you’ll also receive an excellent benefits package; a generous annual leave entitlement; attractive pension options; flexible working and childcare arrangements to enable a good work/life balance; as well as ongoing training and development opportunities. Successful candidates would also have the option to work from an office location in Bristol or Swindon.
