The Role
This is a tremendous opportunity for an ambitious graduate to begin their career in a truly agile organisation, where you will be developing applications across an application stack comprising Java, AWS cloud services and Linux.   Smartology is committed to the development of its staff and we place an emphasis of supported “on the job” learning, supplemented by additional training as identified. This candidate will be expected to demonstrate continual growth in their role.  
Unlike many organisations, you will be working on real projects from day one and work assignments will include both product development and client projects, where you will be expected to meet deadlines whilst observing our development practices and engineering standards.
You will be part of a dynamic early stage venture as we move into the next phase of our growth and have the opportunity to be a part of the continuing evolution of the product.
