Reboot your Career
Our Accelerator is your first step into a career in National Security Cyber.

We are looking for people to join our team on a permanent basis to help develop exciting software and research cutting edge technologies; we want passionate problem solvers who are great programmers or security researchers. You’ll be helping to solve some of our customer’s hardest problems, and trust us – these are not the kind of problems you’ll get at a hedge fund, a Shoreditch start-up nor even a Silicon Valley tech giant!

To prepare you for your new role you’ll start with a 6 month programme of hands-on learning. This will cover a range of programming languages, platforms and technologies that will prepare you to both make things, and take things apart. Training will be delivered out of a specialist BAE Systems facility in Gloucestershire – right on the doorstep of the thriving Cyber innovation and tech sector hubs of Bristol and Cheltenham.

We’re the best in our industry and we’re investing heavily to grow to meet the future demands of the UK. We'll give you the boost you need to deliver cutting-edge solutions in an industry where success really matters.

Who we are looking for

Our National Security Cyber Accelerator could be just the challenge for anyone who:

  • Has some experience developing software - either during a university degree, in a previous job role or from working on your own personal projects.
  • Is driven by learning new things.
  • Loves playing around with new technology.
  • Gets excited by finding out how things work.

We are looking for people with the right attitude and aptitude; not specific languages, tools or qualifications. We want people who love to code, and pick things up quickly. You might have written software in your free time, across a few different platforms/languages. We don’t mind which platforms or languages – it’s the versatility that we’re after! This might even be self-taught or learned in an existing job, it doesn’t need to be from a degree or any formal qualification.

This opportunity would be perfect for someone looking to start or make an early career move into the exciting world of National Security Cyber. We hope that some people who join the Accelerator will already be experienced in parts of what we are looking to teach, but the breadth of what we are covering means there will still be plenty for everyone to learn.

Whilst you progress through the NS Cyber Accelerator we will support you through the UK Security clearance process, allowing you to work on our more sensitive (and most interesting!) projects which support the UK Government.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK and be eligible to undergo UK Security Clearance.

We don’t just make software, we make a difference. Apply now and reboot your career
