We’re looking for talented, hard working Computing Science graduates to join us at our Glasgow office and help us develop our cutting edge mobile application.
We offer full training and support, so new graduates are encouraged to apply.
Our ‘Pronto’ team is the largest supplier of mobile police apps in the UK, providing software to over a third of the UK’s 45 police forces - used by around 30,000 police officers on a daily basis.Based in the West End of Glasgow, we currently have around 50 employees. Our team started as Kelvin Connect in 2002, a spin-out company from the University of Glasgow. Now, as part of Motorola Solutions, we continue to expand with future opportunities in the UK and beyond.We have a relaxed but hardworking environment where jeans and t-shirts are the norm and good ideas and debate are encouraged. You’ll work as part of an agile team, taking part in sprint planning sessions, daily scrums and sprint reviews and retrospectives.
Key responsibilities of Jr Software Developer:
You’ll be responsible for writing Java, XSLT and using our in-house tools to produce Android applications. You don’t need any previous experience other than a strong Computing Science or Software Engineering degree as you’ll be trained by experienced staff throughout the role and work alongside our highly skilled team.
While a large part of the Jr Software Developer role is development work, the role is designed as a graduate position where you’ll be exposed to the full life cycle of a project, including requirements capture, design, implementation and testing. After you have a few years of experience under your belt, there are opportunities to progress into Senior Developer, Business Analyst and Project Management roles depending on your preference and abilities.

We believe that to develop great software, we need to clearly understand the requirements of our end users, so we encourage the team to get out and about and meet our customers. Once you’ve been here for a while, the role may involve occasional customer site visits, so you should be willing to undertake some travel as required (accompanied by a more experienced member of the team).
In return for your expertise, we’ll support you in this new challenge with coaching & development every step of the way. Also, to reward your hard work you’ll get:
Competitive salary and reward package
