Graduate Engineer
As a Graduate Engineer in our Applied Intelligence business, you will work as part of a project team, alongside skilled and experienced individuals who are motivated to train and coach you on the day-to-day skills required to work closely with our customers, both internal and external.

You will learn the tools, techniques and approaches used by engineering professionals and apply them in a controlled environment to ensure projects are delivered on time, to quality and to budget.

You will be placed into a number of disciplines within the business (depending on your background and aspirations!); these include: Engineering Management, Software Engineering, Application Support and Maintenance, Systems Engineering and Architecture, Physical Science and Technology and Infrastructure Engineering.

You could also be placed into one of the following project roles, depending on your skills and aspirations:

Software Engineer
As a new graduate, we expect you to be ready to tackle (and enjoy!) programming tasks from the outset, but we will take the time to mentor you through smaller packages of work and enhancements to our product range. You will work primarily in Java, however we always look for the best framework for the job; some of our developments use c# .net, c++ and html5 technologies.

Electronic Engineer
Our Electronic Engineers design and develop analogue and digital electronics, VHDL and embedded low level software for a wide range of electronic systems. We expect you to take responsibility and tackle a number of different development tasks in different disciplines.

Working under guidance from our expert engineers you could implement complex signal-processing algorithms in VHDL, debug the RF chain on a software radio, develop embedded software to run on low power microcontrollers or develop ruggedised devices for challenging environments.

Test Analyst
Test Analysts play a crucial role in the delivery of projects and their involvement starts at the requirements analysis stage. Initially, testing roles are likely to include defining and creating test cases from functional and technical specifications, executing test scripts and reporting the results clearly.

This is an exciting role for people who love computers and technology, working in the most deeply technical part of the Cyber Security domain. Whether it's researching new technologies or creating software that makes a difference in the real world, you'll always be working at the cutting edge of what's possible.
