We are a small company punching well above our weight - we provide unique services to a range of regional and national law enforcement and security agencies.

We like to foster a culture of innovation and industry leadership. Our company has pushed the boundaries of mobile policing on more than one occasion.  We have been instrumental in shaping policing best practice in the digital world and will continue to shape the trends in the industry.

The Job

As we transition our product to the cloud, we are looking for Software Engineers to participate in all aspects of the software development lifecycle, all levels of the tech stack and on a range of platforms. You will be working on scoping through to release, from Angular through to SQL, on Android through to the Cloud.

We work in a hybrid of lean and agile methodologies. We build a way of working that suits us.Our work with law enforcement requires that our employees have or can obtain security clearance – you should be prepared to undergo security vetting.

  • Security – Experience with security standards and methodologies such as ISO27001 would be a definite plus.
  • Coaching – Everyone at here is an expert at something. You will be too. And you’ll need to help others with your specialism.
  • Ready for anything – at a growing company with a flexible future, there will be challenges that we haven’t even thought of yet!

And if you’ve been through the on-prem to cloud journey before, that is a big plus (put that in your note).

  • Java, Kotlin, Spring Boot (and their build tools and test tools)
