Ensoft Software Engineer – Bachelor/Master (Graduate)


What You’ll Do:

You will be working as a software developer, on a team responsible for delivering cutting edge software technology that helps to run the Internet, delivered to an outstanding quality. From the very start of your career you will be faced with the challenge of developing the very latest networking software – everything from the initial ideas and design through to code, test, delivery and support – and we train and support you to do so to exceptional standards.

You’ll be working in our office in Harpenden, close to the station and with a very fast connection into London. Harpenden is an attractive town, which thanks to its excellent commute has a thriving centre with shops, bars and restaurants. Close by is the city of St Albans, bringing a wider social scene (theatres, clubs, a wider selection of bars) and all the facilities offered by a modern city.  By road, both the M1 and M25 are easily accessible by car. Harpenden is conveniently located just over an hour's drive from both Oxford and Cambridge.

Who You'll Work With:

You’ll be working alongside incredibly talented individuals, like yourself, with a shared enthusiasm for software development.  Cisco’s Ensoft team is entirely made up of people recruited as young, exceptional graduates from top universities who have developed into all the roles that make up our team today - from the management team to the industry leading technical experts.

We have a really friendly culture.  It is a sign of how well people get on that employees arrange so many activities together in their spare time.  This is on top of the many company funded social events arranged by our social team including team celebrations, walking weekends away, weekly five a side football, annual Christmas and Summer parties, and many other one-off events.

Company Information

Cisco is an American multinational technology conglomerate headquartered in San Jose, California, in the center of Silicon Valley. Cisco develops, manufactures & sells networking hardware, software, telecommunications equipment & other high-technology services and products.

What are we looking for?

Who You Are and What You Need To Be Eligible:

  • You must want a career developing software - that's what we do!
  • The barrier to entry is high, so you need a proven academic capability. For example, you will be taking or have completed a numerate degree at one of the UK's leading Universities. As a guide, we would normally expect all A/A* grades at A-level or equivalent.
  • Some software experience is useful, but absolutely not essential.  It's great to find recent graduates who spend their spare time writing code, who want to turn their creative outlet into a successful career. But we can also train graduates who have the right potential to shine at software engineering; our primary criteria for recruiting are potential and enthusiasm rather than what you happen to already know (This is for graduate roles; for internships, we do look for enough experience to become quickly productive, so we can offer a rewarding placement.)
  • Finally, you must be sociable. The process is collaborative, so you should enjoy working closely with the other people in your team.
  • Oh, by the way, we believe that we are creating an exceptional team, so you need a pride and passion for your work and should expect to work with us for many years.
  • Ability to live and work in the UK with no additional sponsorship from Cisco

Why Cisco ?

We connect everything: people, processes, data, and things. We innovate everywhere, taking bold risks to shape the technologies that give you smart cities, connected cars, and handheld hospitals. And we do it in style with unique personalities who aren’t afraid to change the way the world works, lives, plays and learns. We celebrate the creativity and diversity that fuels our innovation. We are dreamers and we are doers. We Are Cisco.

What will you get?

Competitive salary and much more..

Jane Street works differently. We are a quantitative trading firm active on more than 200 trading venues across 45 countries. As a liquidity provider and market maker, we help form the backbone of global markets. Our approach is rooted in technology and rigorous quantitative analysis, but our success is driven by our people.

Our bright, beautiful offices in the heart of New York, London, Hong Kong, and Amsterdam are open and buzzing with conversation. We come from many backgrounds and encourage travel between offices to share perspectives. Some of our best ideas come from bumping into a colleague at the office coffee bar.

Markets move fast. Staying competitive as we’ve grown has required constant invention—of new trading strategies, technology, and processes. We’ve found this is easier when you hire humble, kind people. They tend to help each other, and prioritize teamwork over titles.

We invest heavily in teaching and training. There’s a library and a classroom in every office, because deepening your understanding of something is considered real work. Guest lectures, classes, and conferences round out the intellectual exchanges that happen every day.

People grow into long careers at Jane Street because there are always new and interesting problems to solve, systems to build, and theories to test. More than twenty years after our founding, it still feels like we’re just getting started.

Diversity information:
Work at Jane Street is exciting and challenging. We trade in incredibly competitive, fast-paced environments, and feedback on successes and failures is quick and tangible. This allows for constant evaluation and improvement of our strategies and performance.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
