This position would suit a driven individual with strong problem-solving skills, able to embrace new responsibilities and enjoy the challenges that come with them.
We are looking for a talented, experienced professional who thrives on making a difference and is passionate about building the capacity needed to deliver our digital ambition.
As software developer and database administrator you will work closely with colleagues from across the organisation to develop our vision and implement an agreed approach to help BioAscent to be ready for further expansion. You will also support the development of existing and new applications for improving communication between BioAscent and its customers.

We are seeking talented individuals with the following experience and skills:
- A solid understanding of relational databases and significant experience with SQL e.g. Oracle

- Knowledge of system administration and networking
- Excellent problem solving, analytical and organisational skills

- Good team working skills
Experience of working with LIMS (Laboratory Information Management Systems) and exposure to the Life Science industry would be an advantage, but is not essential.
You will be educated to degree level and have demonstrated relevant experience in these particular fields; programming qualifications would be advantageous.
