Here at GCHQ, our work is unique. So much so, that we often find ourselves tackling challenges that no-one in the industry has ever solved – all for customers with incredibly high expectations whose success help to ensure national security.
At one of the spectrum, we handle business critical enhancements and new systems that must go live within hours – often in response to major world events. At the other, are long-term projects and systems that provide challenges of scale, performance, resilience and complexity.
Within this environment, we’re looking to expand our Engineering and Capability Delivery team. As a Java technical Specialist with us, you’ll handle the latest technology, learn and apply knowledge to tackle technology threats and ensure we solve the complex problems that could impact national security.
There’s a huge range of work in this field. You can expect to be involved with:
-Big Data and distributed programming
-Data query and investigation support applications
-Collaboration tools to support analysis
-Prototype and lightweight embedded applications
Who we’re looking for
We aim to fill most of these roles with experienced engineers, however there is also room for recent graduates and students in the final year of study to apply.
What’s most important is that you have some or all of the following:
-Experience of successfully designing, developing and delivering software based solutions using programming languages
-A talent for solving complex problems
-Robust coding skills
-The confidence to work with clients across the whole lifecycle.
A committed to team work and an innovative approach will be essentials too.
