Graduate Software Engineer

Job description

Voiteq is looking for graduate software engineers to join our team, working on a range of software serving the logistics industry. We build apps that use voice-directed work solutions, so there's lots of interesting ways to get involved with working with voice and wearable computers. Analytics is a big part of our business, so any experience working with data warehousing or dashboard tools is a plus.

We are doing more with Android, developing voice recognition apps for use with wearable devices. As a Microsoft Partner we have access to the latest dev tools and platforms for dev and test.

You'll be working as part of cross-functional agile teams to deliver our product roadmap. We have decades of domain experience in-house and we'll use that to help build better products. We use Jira to manage our user stories and take other bits from scrum, like regular standups, code reviews and planning poker sessions.

Culture

Good code is important. We do regular code reviews and run our internal projects on light-touch scrum. We spend the time to get things right. We've invested a lot of effort in our build and deployment tools, using stuff like Jenkins and Octopus and we're moving towards a DevOps way of working.

Everyone is expected to get involved in the wider business; time on site to see customer and prospect operations is normal, even for developers. We have a company profit share scheme - all eligible employees are able to share in the success of the business.

Learning and Tools

All our developers get a Pluralsight subscription and are expected to make use of it to keep their skills up-to-date. We believe in giving devs the right tools; all have a DevExpress Ultimate susbcription, i7 laptops with 16gb+ of memory, SSDs and dual widescreen monitors. Some developers have taken the training further with professional Microsoft qualifications.

Responsibility

We support some of the biggest logistics operators in the UK, with customers like Wilko, RS Components and Kellogg's. They work 24/7 and rely on us to keep moving; for us this means our developers are expected to do 3rd line support, with out-of-hours on a rota basis.


What we are looking for

  • Demonstrable skills using a modern high-level language (ideally C#)
  • Ability to write testable and decoupled code (DI with e.g. Autofac/Moq)
  • Work well in a team and with non-technical people

Qualifications

  • Relevant degree (engineering, computer science) desirable, although others considered with correct coding skill level.
  • Experience with modern source control (Git).

Accepted degree subjects

  • physics
  • transport engineering
  • mathematics
  • aerospace engineering
  • chemical engineering
  • mechanical engineering
  • chemistry
  • computer sciences and IT
  • electronic and electrical engineering
  • engineering management
