Graduate Programmer

Job description

Due to rapid growth in demand for multi-channel document delivery, Datagraphic created an entry-level Programmer role, recruiting a number of graduates over the past few years. Those graduates have done so well that the business is now hoping to build on this success by seeking two more graduates to join the team. The successful candidates will be heavily involved in a variety of live projects, including:

  • Document Composition programming using XSL:FO, GMC Inspire Designer and Objectif Lune PReS
  • Writing data processing scripts using Java and Perl
  • Database administration using MS SQL Server and PostgreSQL
  • Creating bespoke applications using Java and the Spring framework
  • Maintaining existing web applications using C# and .NET

As you will be working on real projects, in a busy and growing team there will be plenty of opportunity for you to quickly develop your technical skills and take on more responsibility. Combine this experience with the opportunity to work alongside and learn from a well-established and high performing team and your careers prospects are only limited by your enthusiasm and talent.


  • Holidays: 22 days per annum for the first year, increasing by a day per year up to 25 days. In addition to this you get an extra day off on your birthday.
  • Membership to BHSF which is a health cash plan.
  • It also covers wellbeing, lifestyle and insurance services / discounts. Datagraphic are part of the Auto Enrolment pension scheme.

What we are looking for

Whilst you must be a graduate (with a minimum of a Bachelors degree) to apply for this role, your academic qualifications are much less relevant than your personal qualities and your keen interest in programming and technology. You will:

  • Be a self-starter who can share your energy and passion for programming
  • Have some experience of Java, SQL, XML, XSLT or similar. This does not have to be in a commercial or work-based context, it could be through your studies, as part of a University society or a hobby
  • Be bright and quick to learn new technology
  • Be a good team worker who is able to get on well with lots of people
  • Have an ability to solve complex problems
  • Be able to work in the UK on an unrestricted, permanent basis


  • A relevant degree or modules in IT, computer science or software engineering would be warmly welcomed, but are by no means compulsory. Your genuine interest in technology and aptitude for it are much more important

Accepted degree subjects

  • computer sciences
