It would great if you have experience with Cloud Technologies, particularly Microsoft Azure, or if you come from a background in graphics technology (particularly within the packaging sector) – but don’t worry if you’re not.

Benefits:

At SGSCO you’d be a key part of our global software engineering department joining one of our awesome software development teams, working under instruction from a mentor alongside analysts, testers and developers producing business critical software. We offer a good development path with a mentor to support you on your journey.

• Salary of up to £33,000 (dependent upon experience)
