Trainee Software Developer (Graduate or Graduate Apprentice level)




Oleeo is seeking an entry level developer who is either a graduate or graduate apprentice to learn Software Development.

You will be working with an outstanding mentor, who will ensure you receive quality training on your journey to becoming an all-round software developer.

You will be working on the development of next-generation on-line recruitment products using the latest and best technologies and processes available.

This is an excellent opportunity for a talented individual who has evidence of working on coding or software development either through their education, or within their personal time, and is wanting to build their career as a software developer with an exciting product in the ever-evolving HR Technology SAAS space.

Responsibilities will grow during the training, and it’s a very hands on role where you make a real impact on the actual product early one.

You will be working as part of a wider software development team with developers and product managers so interaction and responsibilities will grow as your coding skills grow.

You will be learning frontend programming in JavaScript, backend technologies as well as understanding databases and software development techniques, test driven development and how to plan and manage your own work. Depending on your strengths and interests, you will be able to decide if you want to focus on frontend or backend development.

This is an incredible opportunity for an individual who wants to learn how to code with an exciting, evolving product, within an entrepreneurial culture and to learn with an outstanding teacher with one-on-one training; no structured one size fits all training here!

So, why not apply today!
