Here's our latest round of opportunities and/or other events of interest.
Ensoft Career and Internship Deadline 10am Friday 28th
We develop software that connects the world. The internet depends every
single day on the code we write. It's interesting and challenging work
that matters. It’s also fun - being really good at writing complex
software is what we enjoy.
We are offering graduate jobs for next September, with a starting salary
of £35,000. Summer internships are also available.
Our application process is very simple:
- Email a CV to recruitment(a)ensoft.co.uk
<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>by *10am on Friday 28th November*
- Interviews (lasting no more than 2 hours) are held the following
Tuesday at The University Club, Oxford.
- If successful, you'll have a firm offer quickly.
You can find more details on www.ensoft.co.uk/careers
<http://www.ensoft.co.uk/careers>, or get reminders by following us on
Twitter (@ensoftuk) or Facebook (ensoftuk). But I would encourage you
to apply soon. Whilst everything is designed to take up as little of
your time as we can, it is still very competitive for places.
Thanks for your time, we hope to hear from you soon.

See below for a round-up of some of the recent opportunities we have
FundingKnight are looking for a junior developer to join our programming team.
FundingKnight are a disruptive Peer to Business (P2B) lending company, arranging loans from groups of individuals (who might have as little as 5 pounds to invest) to UK businesses looking to borrow between 50-150k pounds. Our business model combines an emphasis on human contact with our borrowers, and a self-service web solution for lenders (albeit with a human available at the end of a phone for those who need it.)
Our platform is, therefore, the core of what we do. A set of business engines handle all the core business information, abstracting it away from the backend MySQL into a set of APIs. The front-end calls those APIs and turns them into a web page suitable for the customer's device.
This is handling real money for real people - testing is a critical part of what we do, and the junior developer will be someone looking to get experience across all the aspects of developing a site, not just the code-cutting silo - so testing, code promotion, and documentation will be as big a part of your role as coding.
Our Chief Programmer was at New College, where she read Engineering Science, and our CTO at Balliol, where he read Maths/Comp (as it was back then), so we're keen to talk to candidates from a range of analytical backgrounds, not just those who've studied CS.
This is a back-office type role, where jeans and T-shirts, rather than suits and ties, are expected 90% of the time, and where you'll be interviewed by the people you'll be working with as much (or more) than the person you'll be working for.
The development office is based a little south of Gatwick in West Sussex, and you'll be expected to be there most of the time in your first few weeks with the business. However, we are keen to promote remote working, (after those first few weeks), so we'd certainly consider someone whose intention was to remain Oxford-based long-term.
Please apply with a CV and a covering email to the CTO - mark(a)fundingknight.com - the CV can be in any reasonably common format - Word, OpenOffice, PDF, link to a web page..
