Our Pension Calculations Developers produce high quality calculation code, adhering to relevant pension scheme legislation, to ensure correct payments can be made to millions of public sector pension scheme members – quite a responsibility!
From day one you will join one of our scrum teams and take part in all team events. With the support of your new team (made up of experienced Pension Calculations Developers and public sector pension ‘gurus’) you will have the opportunity to create real calculations using your pension expertise from the start. You will develop the latest version of our award-winning software utilising industry leading tools and practices such as pair programming, automated testing and continuous integration.
But our journey is far from over, you will be able to influence where we are going next, what tools and processes we should make use of in the future and how can we deliver the most value to our customers.
Aquila Heywood combines a passion for software with Agile methodology to create modern software solutions for businesses, pension providers and third parties that help transform how their members manage their lifelong financial journeys.
Working for an expanding established market leader you will have a real voice to influence our evolution. Continued learning and progression is ingrained in our daily life, encouraged through a variety of ways from e-learning subscriptions and a monthly down-tools day (“Hive Day”) and communities of practice for learning and experimentation. Our open culture encourages wide participation and innovation. We also reward ourselves with regular socials, organised by our people. Socials are of course remotely for the time being, but we do have a fiercely competitive online pub quiz, games nights and much more!
We are very fortunate at Aquila Heywood to have grown during the global pandemic, remotely on-boarding over 40 (and counting) new recruits since the end of March 2020. We have empowered our people to determine if working from home or from the office, under the safety provisions set out by official guidelines, suits them best; giving us all greater flexibility during this challenging time.
