Principal Systems Developer

The Tech team is rapidly growing with a mix of permanent staff, contractors and specialists. We are growing the number of product teams that between them manage over a dozen systems used by nearly 400 head office staff and 1000s of frontline workers and volunteers that make up our vibrant network of over 600 church-based centres. We also support and equip our expanding affiliate organisations in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and America.

Christians Against Poverty has helped tens of thousands of people to break free from debt and poverty over our first 25 years. Thousands have seen their lives change forever by being introduced to Jesus Christ. We have major plans to modernise the way we work through our award-winning CAP debt centres, job clubs, life skills and CAP Money training. As the world emerges from the pandemic,  we want to invest significantly in Technology to support our core purpose to inspire and equip local churches to help people out of poverty and see them become followers of Jesus.

The role

The role of the principal systems developer is to provide technical leadership across multiple product teams developing and maintaining the bespoke internal web applications that support the work of CAP’s head office and frontline teams.
