Opportunity

Our client is actively recruiting for Graduate Software Engineers in Scotland.

 

This opportunity would be fantastic for talented graduates who are looking to take their first steps into industry! If you are a recent graduate within a STEM field who just wants to get your foot in the door within a large, diverse, software focused environment and is desperate to learn & improve as a developer - then this is the perfect opening for you! 

 

You would be joining a software product development team based in Glasgow, within a highly successful international company.

 

The company is very open to remote working across all its staff so they can consider candidates from parts of Scotland outside the Glasgow area. Although this comes with the caveat for graduates it is often better for learning new skills & personal development to be able to come in to the office a bit. 

 

The role would be a full stack role, although with heavier back end development. You would be developing in Java (Spring) & JavaScript (React) & SQL, amongst other things.
