  • Take responsibility for software performance analysis and system tuning

What qualifications do we look for

  • Passion and enthusiasm for software engineering and keeping up to date with the latest technologies
  • Working towards a degree in Computer Science or related technology subject
  • Good understanding in an object orientated language (ideally C++, JavaScript, C# or Java) and familiarity with a scripting language (such as Python, PHP, Perl or Shell)
  • Thorough understanding of data structures and algorithms
  • Willingness to handle periodic on-call duties depending on team

What’s in it for you   

We believe that a good working environment and happy people are key to success and we continuously look at ways to support this. FactSet has once again been included on the list of the UK Best Workplaces, which marks the 10th consecutive year. We consider this a testament to the great people, strong culture and benefits we have here.

  • Free lunch and daily fresh fruit
  • Unlimited snacks and drinks, fully stocked kitchen
  • Collaborative and social working environment
  • No limit on volunteering opportunities
  • Dedicated social committee
  • Yearly 24-hour Hackathon
  • Regular Engineering social events, including BBQ’s, happy hours, gaming nights and many more
  • VitalityHealth rewards for healthy living; free cinema tickets, discounted gym memberships and much more
  • Pension, life and medical insurance
  • Mentoring scheme and regular 1-2-1 meetings with your Team Lead

As a new graduate, you will go through a 4-week training programme, which will teach you the ins and outs of our technology stack. After training, you’ll be matched with a team suiting your skill set and interests; here you’ll grow your career supported and challenged by a strong network of engineering colleagues from a range of backgrounds.

FactSet is an organically grown company. We want to give our engineers the opportunity to grow and develop within the organisation and therefore always seek to promote internally rather than hire externally.

We hire on a first come first serve basis, so we would encourage you to apply early to avoid disappointment.
