We are looking for talented graduates to join our teams of software developers in London, Cambridge and Manchester.

Softwire | About us

Find out from our talented innovators and passionate problem solvers, how our forward-thinking attitude, sets us apart from any other digital engineering company. With a host of talented digital engineers and software developers, we look to either evolve, execute or explore new ways to achieve your digital design goals.

Job description

Our software developers get to work on a variety of projects, from mobile applications to network applications to high-profile websites, encountering a wide range of technologies along the way. We offer a fantastic package with London starting salary of £40,000 (£36,000 in Manchester; £37,500 in Cambridge), plus bonus and other benefits.

Permanent roles typically start in September and November. We recruit and interview all year round so you can apply whenever you like – but you should do so before the New Year if you want to ensure you get your first choice start date.

Your role on the delivery team

At Softwire, we work closely with our clients to solve their problems. You might find yourself designing and building software on our Engineering team, assisting a client in the early stages of their digital journey on our Labs team, or helping a customer leverage their data on our Data Science team.

Most of the time you will work from Softwire’s offices but, depending on the project and role, you may also be asked to visit or work alongside our clients at their offices.

As you progress in the delivery team, you will have opportunities to find a more specialised role which fits your interests and abilities, for example:

  • Managing projects
  • Becoming a technical lead
  • Training more junior developers
  • Becoming an expert in a particular area.

Training

At Softwire, we invest heavily in the personal development of our employees and have a strong focus on training and mentoring. As a new starter, you will be enrolled on our graduate scheme and receive two months of dedicated training in software development. We’ll then start to introduce you to client projects but give you plenty of opportunity for on-project training and further general training sessions and personal development. We will teach you how be a great developer and a valuable member of any team.

The application process

We pride ourselves on our responsiveness and the quality of our customer service, and that extends to the way we treat you as an applicant.

  • We respond to 95% of applications within one working day (99%+ within two days) and will resolve any queries you have just as quickly.
  • At every stage in the process it typically takes less than two working days for you to receive results.
  • Interviews can be arranged as soon as you wish, subject to availability and two business days’ notice.
  • Successful candidates usually receive a firm job offer within two or three weeks of applying. Note however if you haven’t graduated yet we may postpone our decision until January of your final year.

We also pride ourselves on hiring people with the greatest potential rather than those with prior experience, and we do all we can to bring out the best from you in the interviews by making them as relaxed as possible. We value your time, and we don’t ask you to answer unnecessary questions on application forms or spend hours on preparation. Our recruitment process consists of a few straightforward stages:

  • Submission of your initial application.
  • Completion of some online tests and/or a short telephone interview.
  • A second interview in our offices lasting around half a day. This consists of a number of technical and logical reasoning tests and requires no preparation.
  • We sometimes additionally ask students seeking permanent employment to complete a short internship first, lasting up to two weeks.
