What you’ll be doing

We’re one of the world’s leading communications services company. The services we sell are integral to modern life and are delivered over our networks. These networks are becoming ever increasingly dependent upon software, along with the products and services delivered over these networks. To continue innovating, we need you and your new ways of thinking to help us create amazing products for our customers.  We’ll teach you human centred design, and agile ways of working, to help you create new technology and software solutions for the future.

We’ll get you started right away, learning some job specific skills. You’ll create effective and secure software solutions using contemporary software development languages, as well as learn about different development methodologies and how to undertake analysis and design to create artefacts. We’ll teach you how to produce high quality code with sound syntax in at least one language and maybe more – the sky is your limit!

Day to day, you’ll be performing code review and debugging and refactoring, as well as testing code. You’ll work with our internal software development teams to create software solutions using industry standard build processes for our customers, as well as looking at things like version control, and how to release and deploy code into enterprise environments.

You’ll learn how to deliver the very best software products, helping teams provide an effortless experience for our customers and staff wherever they are in the world, using whatever device and technology they choose. 

This job is available in the Technology part of our business.
