You inspect every element to find creative solutions.
We'll give you some of the most interesting problems to solve.

You love finding creative solutions for technical problems, inspecting every element to uncover how you can stretch the limits of what's possible. Which is why HMGCC is the ideal place to take the next step in your Software Development career.

Our multi-disciplinary team designs and develops innovative, secure communications systems for HM Government in the UK and overseas. You'll have the chance to work on a range of complex, absorbing projects - while helping to safeguard the country and its interests.

The role

You'll get involved across the whole lifecycle - developing, testing, deploying and maintaining software solutions to never-seen-before problems. As a key member, you'll enjoy the benefits from the collaborative and supportive nature of our team. However, you'll also be comfortable working on your own. Either way, you'll use a variety of languages, platforms and technologies to bring your creations to life. We encourage everyone to share their expertise, which is why you'll always be there to act as a mentor for our graduate and junior developers.

Your profile

- You'll have practical programming experience (including debugging) in at least one of: Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS or Android
- You'll be able to design, develop and test software in one or more of C/C++, C#, Objective-C and Java
- You can reason about the performance of different data structures and algorithms
- You understand and can intelligently debug both existing and new software

While not essential, experience of object orientated programming, along with scripting skills such as Python, PowerShell, Perl or bash would make you really stand out. And so would knowledge of networking and communications such as TCP/IP, HTTP, Protocol Buffers and application of encryption and compression.


We'll invest in your future, as we're keen to see you stretch your potential too. Technical training programmes, professional accreditations, mentoring and on-the-job-development are just some of the ways we'll do this. You can also look forward to a great rewards package and a welcoming, modern workplace that has a cafe, gym and nursery. Flexible working will also be considered.
