Work in Software Development and Testing

Collaborating on projects which will stretch and challenge their technical knowledge, those working in software development jobs will be familiar with languages like Python, C++, C# and Java. Comfortable writing clean code and expressing problems and solutions clearly, software developers within the secure sector are happy working within an agile work stream to analyse and solve programming or development problems.

Ensuring that application security is built into the early stages of the software development life cycle, software development professionals will make use of their solution and software architecture skills to develop embedded systems supporting continuous integration, unit testing and static/dynamic analysis.

Within software testing roles, testing professionals will understand the testing lifecycle and have a developed knowledge of testing processes, practices, tools and techniques. Working in tandem with developers, those in these roles will be specialised in IT troubleshooting and solving complex processes and systems.  

Familiar with Automation, Load, or Performance testing, and able to respond flexibly to changing demands, software testers are able to organise, prioritise, delegate and complete tasks across the testing lifecycle as needed. With a solid understanding of the essential methodologies, those in software testing are guided by systematic software development methods – executing programs specifically to look for bugs.


For those eager to implement organisational change and work on highly challenging and in demand projects in tech, a move into DevOps may be the perfect fit. Championing infrastructure scaling and leading the direction for core propositions, talented DevOps engineers will be in their element using specialised tools to implement various process stages. A fusion of “development” and “operations”, those in software looking for their next challenge should explore the DevOps roles we’ve got listed.
