Job Description

About Graduation Program

Our software engineers continue to lead the way, building technology that can have a real impact on our customers. Our Technology Software Engineering program will give you exposure to a selection of the latest technologies. It aims to equip you with the right knowledge and skills to become one of our future engineering leaders. You’ll be able to bring your knowledge and experience to life, helping us to better serve our customers. We’ll also show you how to architect some of the most complex and ambitious software systems being built. Using agile principles, you’ll learn how to protect customer data, how to automate, and how to build large-scale systems. 

You’ll experience the breadth of software engineering with the opportunity to spend time in several teams, including our front and back-end development teams. You’ll be paired with other engineers in your team and work closely with your product managers to build software for either our customers or colleagues.

For 24 months you will be placed within the Technology teams receiving an opportunity to learn through experience. We will provide e-learning, training, and individual support from our colleagues. After the program, you will be able to fulfill the requirements of our SDE2 level colleagues and show potential to becoming SDE3 in the future.


We’re looking for graduates with a passion for technology. It’s not vital you have a degree in computer science, but you must be able to demonstrate your ability to write quality coding. We’re looking for logical problem solvers who are keen to learn and build their skills, and who enjoy the challenge of working with something new.
