It’s an exciting time to join Gearset! In the last few years we’ve rocketed from a 7 person start-up to over 250 people, and we’re only just getting started. As a product-driven company founded by engineers, we know the value of a great engineering culture, and we’re looking for enthusiastic graduates to join a team built from the ground up on trust, teamwork and tight feedback loops.

Our deliberate lack of unnecessary hierarchy, and our focus on the job to be done (one of our core values), means you’ll work from day one on making thousands of businesses around the world more effective. Working closely with users, you’ll see the difference the features you build have on millions of people developing on Salesforce, and how they apply DevOps best practices to their development and release process.

Our culture of trust, transparency, and collaboration, means everyone at Gearset is given the autonomy to succeed and are trusted to do good work. We only add process when it helps us get things done, and we’re allergic to pointless meetings! We live by our core engineering values, which aren’t just nice words—they guide us through day-to-day challenges and are the foundation of how we work together. 

We know that learning and development is important to great engineers, and at Gearset you’ll find it comes in many forms. From the chance to collaborate with other really smart people who help you learn and raise your game, to having an annual learning and development budget for conferences, events, and courses. All this coupled with flexible working, and a top end hardware setup of your choosing, you can see that Gearset has built a culture to help you succeed.   

Our engineering team is driven by a genuine desire to make the lives of our customers easier, and we do that by helping each other deliver consistently outstanding work. We’re confident in our product, market potential, and we have big plans for the future.

Please note

This role will start in September 2024.

Applications close on 1st July 2024.

All applications will be reviewed and interviews commence after that date.

What’s the opportunity for a Graduate Software Engineer at Gearset?

  • Our small teams have responsibility for product goals, not building specific features, which means people working on the problems have the freedom to decide the tactics they use to solve the root causes. You’ll have the opportunity to impact what we build, as well as how we build it. 
  • A great team does their best work with context and feedback - there’s no substitute for talking directly with the people impacted by our work. Graduate engineers work across the business and talk directly to customers and partners, to ensure we're solving the most pressing problems in the most effective way.
  • We release new versions of Gearset multiple times a day, and can switch back quickly to the previous release if we find an issue. We continually invest in our observability and infrastructure, and that enables us to build tight feedback loops, fix problems immediately, and delight our users.

What you’ll achieve

  • Maintain and extend existing features, and collaborate with the rest of the development team to spec, design and build new features end-to-end.
  • Learn from your assigned mentor from day one and be supported by a team of people who enjoy helping eachother grow their skills.
  • Learn a pragmatically-chosen tech stack, including a mix of proven technologies such as Docker, AWS, C#, Typescript, React and TeamCity.
  • Work closely with users, delighting them with support, researching new features, and gaining feedback to drive new ideas and ways to improve our solution.
  • Contribute opinions on a range of topics, from development practices to product strategy and roadmap, to impact business decisions.

About you

  • Have (or are about to graduate with) a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or a related field
  • Love to learn and improve, and you're comfortable giving and receiving constructive feedback to make your work even better
  • Have an interest in frontend and backend development
  • Want to build a quality product that’s loved and depended on by its users
  • Can write code and solve complex problems
  • Enjoy working across departments with a diverse team
  • Are enthusiastic about working directly with users to build and deliver the right features
  • Approach your work with pragmatism, prioritising iteration and delivering value to customers, over process and deliberation

Great to haves

  • Previous experience from an internship in this field
  • Contributions to open source projects
