Graduate opportunities in our Development teams

Our Development teams combine technical skills with a comprehensive understanding of the financial and business problems that our solutions address. They assist in delivering a better quality product to the customer, making us stand out in the marketplace.

As a graduate joining one of our Development teams, your responsibilities will range from developing code, through to working on a complete range of projects – from small bug-fixes and client enhancement requests, to new project development. Your role will include requirements and code handover with the other groups in the development lifecycle, during which you will accurately communicate the milestone updates, highlighting any risks and technical challenges. We use a number of programming languages within our product suites and will consider candidates with experience in any programming language.

Working as part of a small product-focused development team and/or a larger cross-product team of developers, analysts and product managers, you will become familiar with the key processes behind professional software engineering; balancing the needs of clients with the realities of development timelines and constraints.

Successful graduates who join us will build an understanding of the financial and business concepts behind our software. They can expect to work on real, challenging problems and help solve them with innovative, pragmatic solutions.

Your development is important to us and we offer continuous learning throughout the Graduate Programme. Building on from the induction week which focuses on soft and business skills, you will be given product and technical training, specific to your role. You will also be assigned online tutorials on financial services to help build your knowledge in this area. Additionally, each quarter you will come together with your graduate class for further classroom training and one-on-one coaching sessions will be made available on selected courses to suit your individual development needs.

So if you appreciate the advantages of working with highly talented individuals and thrive in a culture that values teamwork, individual entrepreneurship, personal accountability and excellence, you will fit right into our working environment! We look for graduates who are enthusiastic to work in the financial software industry and are keen to join our company. Ultimately we are seeking creative problem solvers, who take the initiative and get excited about the challenges their roles can bring. If this sounds like you, then APPLY NOW!
