We are Software2, an exciting EdTech company who are making waves in our industry. On a mission to make the student experience even more awesome, we provide award-winning technology solutions to the higher education market. 

Founded in 2009, Software2 went global in 2014 and are pushing the limits of what’s possible in application delivery and have created AppsAnywhere, the first and most comprehensive frontend app store for software delivery. We’ve also remodelled the user experience in higher education software access and now, we’re looking for a Graduate Developer to join our team and continue our ground-breaking work. 

You’ll find us in our converted pub in the village of Sherburn in Elmet just a short distance from Leeds and easily commutable via the M1, A1 and M62.

As a Graduate Developer, you’ll be:

- Participating fully in the team's responsibilities from the outset 
- Participating in planning, design, QA testing and of course, daily stand-ups 
- Part of a team who are responsible for the full development lifecycle of the product: from design through development, to unit and integration testing, as well as iterative improvement, with plans to include deployment and monitoring as part of this in the future

Other companies may call this role, Junior Developer, Graduate Developer, Graduate Backend Developer, Graduate Software Developer, Graduate Programmer, Graduate Software Programmer, or Graduate Backend Programmer. 

But what’s in it for you? 

- Benefits package including contributed pension, private healthcare and life cover (amongst others) 
- Unlimited holiday (as long as your work is done, subject to conditions) 
- Work from a converted pub which includes a bar and darts which is easily commutable via the M1, A1 and M62
- Join a fun, relaxed atmosphere 
- Fast progression prospects 
- The freedom to undertake independent work 
- A dedicated training budget each year
