Life as a Software Engineer is all about creating products using cutting edge tech.

If you choose to join us as a Graduate Software Engineer you’ll learn how to build and test enterprise-grade, resilient software that is rapidly utilised by clients. You’ll evolve applications building capabilities and features primarily in Java (server-side). You’ll also gain exposure to web-based front end using HTML, CSS, and Typescript.

Our technology stretches across a wide variety of areas, from proprietary low-level database components highly tuned to efficiently process billions of rows of data, through to richly interactive interfaces incorporating machine learning techniques to deliver cutting edge user experiences.

We invest in the future of our business and technology to ensure our products and platforms are robust, maintainable and scalable. That’s why you can also expect to experiment in emerging technologies and techniques that help keep our products, processes and pipelines modern, effective and efficient.

Get ready for design thinking, open-source software, cloud technologies, APIs, a start-up mindset and an agile framework.

What we’re looking for

A Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or another technical STEM subject.

Don’t have a degree in those fields? That’s ok.

Maybe you’re a bedroom coder or simply a tech enthusiast. If you have a real passion for technology and can demonstrate an understanding of how and where it can be used, we will consider those from a non-STEM degree.

We look for students who are:

  • Intellectually Curious: You will love to learn. To discover how things “tick”. You will ask questions and not be afraid to challenge the status quo.
  • Driven to deliver: To excel and take pride in your work. To meet deadlines.
  • Willing to contribute: You will get stuck in and contribute ideas. We know you’ll make mistakes (everyone does!) but you will continually evolve.
  • Proud to collaborate and be yourself: You won’t be afraid to help others. We want to see the authentic you, and to support you in delivering with integrity.
  • Accountable: To safeguard our future. To represent our brand. To do yourself and Experian proud.

The Graduate Programme

During the 2-year programme, you’ll receive a blend of soft skills training delivered in conjunction with our wider Graduate cohort, alongside technical training delivered more locally. You can expect a blend of self-paced training courses and on the job learning
