Joining a team of world class engineers, you'll be working on a huge range of software engineering projects. They're pretty varied and cover everything from malware analysis to high-speed packet processing. And most of our unique products push the boundaries of existing technology, so you can rest assure that you'll always be at the forefront of the industry.


  • Develop and deliver completely bespoke solutions, from inception right through to production
  • Design, develop, test, deploy and continually improve our software to keep us ahead of the cyber-criminals
  • Writing software on (at least) a weekly basis
  • We work across a number of different technologies, but we don't expect you to be an expert in everything - that's what the team are here for and we'll support you learning additional skills too. However, you would need to be a hands on practitioner in at least one of the technology areas we work in. These include:
  • The latest security measures and countermeasures
  • Bespoke network design
  • Cyber security processing systems
  • Cloud services
  • Design, integration, testing and support of world leading big data platforms
  • Building security applications for desktop and mobile platforms.

We'll also need to see these on your CV:

  • A degree (or equivalent) in a relevant field of study
  • Experience working to multiple deadlines
  • Compiled and scripted languages; e.g. C, C++ (STL, multi-threaded/real-time), C#, Objective-C, Swift, Java/JEE, Python, JavaScript, Go, Bash, PowerShell
  • Cloud platforms and container technologies; AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, OpenStack, OpenShift, Kubernetes, Docker, Cloud Security.
  • Software lifecycle, issue management and version control technologies and practices; e.g. Git (using Git Flow), Bitbucket, JIRA, Scrum/Kanban.
