Job Description

Software Engineer - Java / AWS / Cyber Defence

Ever fancied developing software used in Cyber Defence? What about constantly playing with new technology to help solve real world problems that evolve almost as quickly as a solution appears? How about researching & building platforms that are designed to scale and be deployed onto Cloud platforms?

We are working with a technology firm in Manchester that are looking for 2 Software Engineers that have already built up a good knowledge of Java & the associated ecosystem such as Spring Boot, ElasticSearch.

They work with a mixture of Government, Defence and Private Sector clients, developing a diverse range of software products to tackle real problems. This might be things Cyber Threat monitoring platforms, Cyber risk analysis platforms or secure access gateways to Cloud services.

They have grown exponentially over the last 4 years, building relationships with a number of major clients, and with the growth of the Defence & Cyber Security sector in the North West set to continue, our client are building to support that continued growth.

What can they offer you?

You will be working with teams of passionate & skilled Software Engineers, largely working with Java 8 and above, developing scalable, secure solutions that are deployed onto AWS.

They are a mature Agile environment, and unlike many systems integrators, they don't expect you to work away from home during the week - the projects they take on with always be delivered from Manchester.

They have built strong competences for working on Cyber Threat & Security and secure / defence-related solutions, so they offer the opportunity to work in a growing & challenging space.

As a business, they also like to grow people and these positions are rare opportunities for experienced heads to come in and step up into Technical Lead / Lead Engineer roles, for people that want to take that leap.

They are mainly working with Java 8 (and above) with Spring Boot, but there is a lot of scope to suggest other technology stacks. There is an immediate opportunity to develop further skills in Python, AWS (and all of it's many services) if you want to.

Applicants need to be able to successfully pass a UK government SC-level security vetting, but this can be done on the job. There is the further opportunity to get this enhanced to DV level for eligible people.


  • Flexible core hours between 7am - 6.30pm
  • 25 days holiday
  • Bi-annual guaranteed bonus scheme
  • Healthcare cover
  • Pension scheme (up to 10% matched)

What they need from you?

  • Applicants need to be eligible to pass SC-level vetting
  • Commercial experience of developing scalable Java-based software applications
  • Strong knowledge of software engineering from analysis through to deployment
  • Strong knowledge of Agile & engineering best-practice
