  • POSITION:Full time
  • SALARY:£25-27 k
  • LOCATION:
    Portishead, Bristol

Key responsibilities

  • Development and support of bespoke systems for customers, across the technologies we specialise in (potentially rotating through different areas of technical specialism to build a wide range of technical expertise)
  • Provide consulting to our customers to help them get the best solution to meet their needs

Personal specification

You’ll have or realistically expect to achieve a 2:1 degree or higher in a numerate subject (e.g. Computer Science, Engineering, Maths, Physics, etc.). We’re also interested in hearing from recent graduates who’ve worked in the industry.

Based on our needs and your preferences/aspirations, you’ll work in one or more of our technical areas, allowing you to grow a breadth & depth of technical knowledge so you can always pick the best solution to the problem at hand.

These are the core skills you’d be using, but aptitude always beats a set of skills for us. You need to have done enough programming in a serious language that you’re convinced you have the right aptitude to grow into a top-notch software developer/consultant, but don’t worry if you haven’t heard of most of these technologies or done extensive programming.
