Job Description

Junior Software Engineer 

Location: Yeovil 

Salary: £25,000+


Exciting opportunities await!


Do you want to write software for the UK’s latest frontline fighter, Augmented/Virtual reality trainers for nuclear submarines or even 3D Mission Planning systems for Typhoon and Hawk jets? Interested in using machine learning on big data to maximise availability for aircraft, ships and land vehicles or developing web based solutions to keep airspace safe? Or even producing software to optimise the timetables on the London Underground?

Well, if any of those grab your attention, how would you also like to work for a business that is committed to making the workplace one that is agile and flexible to meet the diverse needs of our internal and external customers? Where high standards of work are encouraged? Where people are understood and valued? Where you can develop and enhance your skills and knowledge, and be given the opportunity to become a leader in a global business?

There are a number of Junior Software Engineer vacancies at our site in Yeovil, Somerset giving you the opportunity to work on projects such as those above and to start your software career.

We are looking for people who can be independent, accountable and are output driven. You will need to be flexible to meet changing business and customer demands, willing to share best practice and engage in the future of our business. Being open to new ideas, new approaches and adaptability in a fast-paced technology driven environment will also be key to this role.


What you will be doing:

As a Junior Software Engineer your responsibilities will include:

  • Completion of allocated requirements, design and implementation, and test tasks to a high standard, and within schedule and estimates
  • Software development of solutions
  • Testing of completed functionality
  • Adherence to project processes and software development practices
  • Accurately reporting on progress and providing feedback to team members and leadership
  • Supporting System Test and Integration Activities
  • Production of appropriate technical documentation
  • Participation in peer reviews of own and others’ work products
  • Configuration of completed work


As part of the software team you will be expected to work closely with team members, and support the team and/or project leadership in daily activities


What we are looking for in you: 

You should have an awareness and understanding of:

  • The full software development lifecycle, from requirements & design through to delivery
  • Software development processes (e.g. design, coding, unit testing), experience of development tools (e.g. UML design tools, code IDEs)


You should have experience in at least one of the following:

  • Desktop-based applications (Java and Eclipse RCP or C#/C++)
  • Web-oriented applications and services (Java/C#, JSP, HTML, CSS, Apache middleware)
  • Business intelligence/analytics tools and techniques (ETL, SQL, Python)
  • Windows or Linux target environments
  • Object-oriented design/development including UML

Ideally you have an honours degree or equivalent professional qualification in a relevant STEM subject, although additional relevant knowledge, experience and domain expertise may offset the normal qualification requirements.


What we're looking for in you:

To thrive in this role you will have a positive attitude towards team working and ensuring timely and quality delivery of software products. You will also have excellent communication skills to foster a positive team dynamic. There will also be the opportunity to work away from your home site for periods of time so flexibility will also be key.
