What We Look For

As a highly technical, agile-focused software engineering environment, we develop and assure multiple solution components to interact in a common framework. The developed modules need to be assured both as individual components and as part of an integrated solution, with an appreciation for APIs and upstream/ downstream systems. We are working towards a continuous integration and deployment outcome which drives much of our approach.

The assurance service, which is embedded in the overall software engineering function, provides a highly automated, continuous testing capability. This capability covers key requirements, both business and technical, through various test phases including Unit, System, Integration and Performance.

Due to the nature of our client's work we are only able to consider people who possess DV clearance or are eligible to undergo the DV clearance process.
