Are you taking your first step in an IT career that really matters? Take this unique opportunity to become a participant in the Software Engineering Graduate Class.

What are you going to do?

In the Graduate Class Software Engineering you will be prepared for a period of 6 to 8 weeks to participate in projects for our customers.

Careers in CGI’s Space, Defence and Intelligence teams

We’re looking for professionals to join our team and develop an exciting career with us. This video explores the exciting work you could be part of.

The Graduate Class consists of a series of training sessions in a group, after which you work out a case together with the group in which your knowledge is applied and tested. This includes a JAVA or .NET certification, Object Orientation, Test Driven Development, Scrum, requirements in an Agile environment, Databases, Tooling (Build automation, Docker), Security, Architectural Design and Code Maintainability & Refactoring. In addition, the knowledge is applied and tested in a development case (SCRUM).

What are you bringing?

  • You are a starter in IT - (just) graduated at HBO (university of applied sciences) or WO (academic university education) level with a technical education (Informatics, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, ...)
  • Or you have completed HBO / WO training with a different direction and affinity with the IT profession
  • Preferably you already have some experience with software engineering.
  • You are the topper who has not finished learning and who wants to work on the most challenging systems.
  • You are a go-getter and can take a beating.
  • You have an excellent command of the Dutch language.

Where do you end up?

After obtaining your certificate you really get to work. You start directly with one of our customers or put your knowledge into practice by working together with experienced colleagues on one of our in-house projects. These colleagues coach you until you can continue independently. The Graduate Class offers you a solid and professional basis to quickly find your way within CGI and with our clients. We have a close-knit community for each field in which colleagues keep each other informed of the latest developments, but in which there is also room for the necessary fun.

Our offer

A permanent job, the opportunity to become a shareholder and thus share in our successes. For example, working at CGI is doubly rewarded. You can follow relevant training courses via the CGI Academy, because your personal development is important to us and is our priority. A place in our close-knit community where we jointly take responsibility for projects and exceed customer expectations. A role in our CGI story.

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
