Graduate, Edinburgh
"The company culture is incredibly friendly, laid-back and without politics, while still being focused on delivering projects on time and to high standards. There's a big focus on personal development and workforce morale including frequent morale trips and pub drinks. There's also a culture of moving engineering staff to build experience in other areas so there are chances to spend time working in testing or customer care if you'd like to. I started with almost no experience in computing and was trained up very quickly into a competent software developer."
