You can help create a world in which responsible, sustainable vehicles revolutionise the driving experience for generations. Our vision is to leverage the incredible potential of technology to build vehicles that not only offer a premium, all-encompassing digital experience, but that also make our customers lives better.


Join Jaguar Land Rover as we drive a revolution in luxury vehicles and digital experiences.


Our mission is to power Jaguar and Land Rover's Digital Transformation, by rapidly growing digital capabilities to meet the needs of our luxury brands and an evolving market.


We believe in the power of bespoke software technology to create a seamless customer experience within our vehicles, our dealerships and our connected lives.


This is a real moment of change, for a big brand in an exciting and unique industry in the North, and it's happening right now.


You will:

  •  Design and build software in line with our modern software engineering and DevOps practices including TDD, pair programming, code review and CI/CD.
  •  Own your solutions all the way from requirements, through coding, testing and deployment to the hands of our customers in production. 
  •  Take pride in your software meeting high levels of quality, automating and striving for improvements and innovation at every opportunity.
  •  Work collaboratively with customers and stakeholders across the company to help identify, design and refine solutions that deliver real value. Contribute to the continuous improvement of our engineering practices and standards.


We welcome applications from anyone with:

  • Experience with Java (and Spring Boot), Golang or other server-side languages and frameworks and/or experience with client-side JavaScript/TypeScript and common libraries such as React
  • Real-world experience of practices such as Test-Driven Development (TDD) and Pair Programming A genuine passion for quality with experience writing automated tests
  • Previous responsibility for design and architecture of complex web systems Experience and willingness to coach and mentor less experienced engineers


We're particularly keen on people with:

  •  Working knowledge of automated CI/CD pipelines for building, testing and deploying your code
  •  Knowledge and experience of event-driven microservice architectures, RESTful APIs and message queues Confidence with source code management and version control tools (Git/GitLab/GitHub)
  • Previous experience building bespoke enterprise-grade cloud-native applications
  • Working knowledge of relational & NoSQL database technologies such as MySQL or MongoDB Experience working in a genuine agile environment - scrum, kanban or anything in between


If you’ve got any of the following as well then we’ll really be impressed:

  • Worked in a true DevSecOps culture, owning and feeling responsible for your code in production, including monitoring and observability with tools such as Prometheus and Grafana and incident management with tools such as PagerDuty
  • Experience with Kubernetes and cloud infrastructure (GCP/AWS/Azure)


Not sure you meet all the requirements?


  • We'd still love to hear from you - we provide support, mentoring and coaching for less experienced candidates to grow into the role


What it's like working at Jaguar Land Rover Digital Engineering?

Jaguar Land Rover is a world leader in Engineering - we make incredible luxury vehicles. Our aspirations are no different for Software Engineering. Our people, our teams, and our culture of sharing, support and quality are at the heart of everything we do. We are natives of the agile and DevOps world and are here to solve complex technical challenges.


We're working hard for an environment that is diverse and inclusive. We are looking to add to our talented team with people from all backgrounds and cultures; we’re looking forward to making you feel welcome.


Speaking to our teams you'll find that flexibility and work-life balance are a core value. We trust our employees to get the job done and respect their choice in the environment to do so, and offer hybrid working, meaning you can work at home or in the office. Whether you have family commitments or personal appointments, work/life can fit around you. We have excellent workspace facilities (with the best view in town) located in the center of Manchester where our teams can get together to collaborate. You will join as part of a team, a strong cohesive unit that supports each other to deliver value. Everybody has their part to play and nobody works alone.


We invest in people and help them grow - there is always something to learn, which is why our teams get the chance to spend 20% of their time working on levelling up their skills. Our engineers spend a day each week focusing on their own personal learning and development, building internal tools, or investigating new technologies, providing the space that enables both themselves and the team to continuously learn and improve.



Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

This role may offer the opportunity for hybrid working where you can split your time between working from home and in the office. At Jaguar Land Rover, hybrid working is a voluntary, non-contractual arrangement providing employees with more choice and flexibility around how, when and where they work, if suitable for their role. Further details can be discussed with the Hiring Manager at interview stage. 

Please be aware that we may close this vacancy for applications before the stated deadline if we receive a high volume of interest. We strongly advise you to submit your application as early as possible.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.


At Jaguar Land Rover, we are passionate about our people. They are at the heart of our business. We are committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive culture that is representative of our global customers and the society in which we live; a culture in which every one of our employees can bring their authentic self to work, and reach their full potential.
