Job Description

Innovative software solutions to some of the most challenging defence challenges currently being faced in the UK at the moment.

Who are you joining

You could join a company where you're involved in supporting the development of ground based software using C++ or Java to support the development of greenfield projects. Their engineers aren't pigeonholed into just doing the same thing day in and day out, you'll be involved in the full software development lifecycle. That's right from requirements, design and later implementation.

You'll be working in a team of 16 comprised of Engineers newly qualified to experienced Developers with over 15+ years experience where both technical and leadership progression opportunities are available - either into Software Product Lead roles or software architecture.

What you will be developing

In the short term you'll be working with one of the end customers on the greenfield development of a new application built in primarily Java. The team works on a range of software products for different clients, some of which include algorithmic waypoint navigation systems for customers in the defence industry. So, they're equally interested in individuals who have either a C++ or Java background and people who are interested in the opprotunity to cross-train.

What you'll get in return

There's a competitive salary on offer depending on experience and benefits which include things such as:

  • flexible working
  • paid overtime availability
  • a comprehensive pension scheme
  • private healthcare
  • sporting facilities on site
  • site facilities including canteen
  • bonus schemes
  • and some excellent learning and development opportunities

How to apply

Apply with an updated CV online. Please be aware that you'll either hold or need to be eligible to pass security clearance for this role in order to be successful.
