With our support you will become a world class software engineer, armed with the expertise to tackle the difficult challenges posed daily by the projects you are working on. With the assistance of your manager and mentor, you will learn new software languages and programming techniques to enable you to solve some of the most complex problems the software industry faces.
You will use your analytical skills to reduce each problem you encounter into its individual parts, and then work out how to solve each issue and turn your design into reality. Your creative instincts will help you to produce a solution that is elegant, efficient, high-quality and delivered to the customer on time.
Every project will involve new and exciting challenges. You’ll have clear ownership of the aspects that you are responsible for and will very soon be making key decisions that affect our products. As you become more experienced, you will increasingly have the opportunity to lead projects, people and teams as your career flourishes within Metaswitch.
You do not need prior computing experience, but an enquiring mind and the proven ability to solve complex problems are essential, as is an outstanding academic record.
It is important to us that you do not feel pigeon-holed. So if you enjoy variety, you can spend time in any of the roles above. If you excel in all areas, then you will have the opportunity to run your own division - acting effectively as an entrepreneur within the company.
In addition, we give everyone the opportunity to participate in regular Metaswitch organised Hackathons with your colleagues from across our engineering spectrum. These great events give everybody a chance to swap ideas and generate momentum in their own projects, as well as ensuring that your creative and problem-solving skills have a chance to shine – and win prizes!
