Junior Software Engineer – Graduate Programme

Hewlett Packard Enterprise hires the best talent to advance how we live and work. In 1939 our founders started a revolution. Now we’re taking it to the next level. The mission might be nearly 80 years old, but at Hewlett Packard Enterprise ideas are racing forward. And our big workforce and big ideas mean big career opportunities. It’s your time to accelerate next.

We currently have an exciting opportunity for Junior Software Engineers within the Air Mission Planning Application (AMPA) programme. It is a programme that delivers solutions to enable fast jets, transport aircraft and helicopters to fly safely. This incorporates allowing a mission to be rehearsed and flown in software before being uploaded to the aircraft and integrating a number of map sources and imagery databases to provide much improved situational awareness in advance of flying over a target.

As a Junior Software Engineer you will gain exposure to all aspects of the “Software Lifecycle” from Requirements Analysis through to Test & Acceptance. This could be on a single project, or multiple projects within the Air Mission Planning Aid (AMPA) programme.

The AMPA programme is currently based technically on a Red Hat Linux operating system, and depending on the project area, you are likely to use one or more of the following programming languages: C, C . Python & Java.

It all begins with an on-boarding course where you’ll get to grips with our business and how you fit into it. You will attend workshops, work on projects and undergo professional and technical training in order to prepare you for your new role. Straight away, you’ll be working with people who are experts in their field. As a valued part of the team, we’ll expect you to give your insight and opinion, and make a real contribution to our business.

Throughout this 24-month graduate scheme, your development won’t stop. You’ll attend sessions designed to hone your skills, and you’ll have the support of your line manager, an assigned mentor and a graduate-level buddy. Through ongoing appraisals and feedback processes, you’ll drive your career.

We’re looking for high achievers who have graduated in 2015 or 2016 and achieved a minimum 2:1 degree (or equivalent) in a Computing discipline or with a strong interest in IT. A confident communicator and excellent organiser, you’ll combine a proactive and enthusiastic attitude with strong time and project management skills. You’ll also need to be able to work on your own and as part of a team, and must be eligible to work in the UK.

Also, you should be able to commence work February to April 2017.
