Graduate Scientific Software Developer (UK)

Opportunities available from spring 2015

Tessella is a global analytics, software services and consulting company that works with some of the world’s biggest and most well-known organizations to solve complex real world problems.

The Role

A career at Tessella offers a varied, challenging and rewarding opportunity to combine your science background with your interest and ability in software engineering.

You will get to:

  • Work closely with our customers to help identify and define their requirements.
  • Help design and develop tailor made software solutions.
  • Be involved in all stages of the software development lifecycle.

We recruit only the most talented individuals, so you will enjoy working with like-minded colleagues, who are among the best in their field. We work in object-oriented languages, using a variety of frameworks and all of our projects call upon the natural problem solving abilities, domain expertise and technical excellence of our consultants.

You may not have heard of Tessella but you will certainly have heard of our customers. We work with some of the biggest names in the pharmaceutical, energy and consumer goods industries, as well as organisations in the public sector. The projects we undertake are extremely challenging and require the ability to adapt to new technologies, industries and environments.

Training and Career Development

Our staff have an annual training allowance of 150 hours, which can be used to learn a new programming language, develop consulting, business analysis and project management skills or earn recognised professional qualifications. Your progression through the company is also driven by you. We offer a technical career path for staff who wish to focus on technology and become technical architects of our software, or a more managerial route for staff who wish to develop their organisational and people management skills to become project managers and line managers.

We are looking for bright, enthusiastic and high achieving graduates to help create and develop innovative technical solutions for our customers. From the start of your career at Tessella, you will be making a tangible contribution to real projects. You should have:
