Application Development Programme

Job description

Experience the entire project lifecycle.

At Baillie Gifford, Application Development is about using the latest technology to create new and cutting-edge business solutions. On our two-year graduate programme, you’ll work with business users to define and create systems with technologies including HTML5, Java Script, Angular, ASP.NET Core, Oracle SQL and PL/SQL, and C#.

After a comprehensive three-month induction, you’ll experience a variety of placements and be involved in real projects throughout their complete lifecycle. There’s ongoing support so that you can be involved in every stage of the process from gathering requirements and full stack development through to testing and deployment. You’ll also be joining our journey towards an entire DevOps culture and practice, as we achieve more frequent releases and faster feedback times.

Although this role is at the forefront of technology innovation, it’s not tech for tech’s sake. You’ll collaborate with colleagues across the organisation and gain a full understanding of what they need from their technology. Then it’s over to your team to create imaginative solutions that deliver results for the business.

What we are looking for

Step forward.

We’re looking for a strong aptitude for IT, as well as a focus on developing your technical and personal skills. At Baillie Gifford, your career development is very much in your own hands. So you’ll take ownership of it and drive it forward yourself. In return, we’ll give you all the training and support you need to achieve your goals.

You don’t need to have studied an IT-related degree, but you will need an interest in software development and knowledge of a programming language. Just as important though, you must bring strong communication skills, real commercial awareness and the ability to explain to us how you believe technology can make business better.
