Graduate Software Security Engineer

  • Job
    Entry Level
  • Software Engineering
  • Cambridge


  • First and foremost, we’re looking for someone who has a keen interest in software security, and you should be able to evidence this with extracurricular activities or similar.
  • In addition, you should have the following:
  • A technical degree within a relevant field
  • Enthusiasm and knowledge about a range of security topics
  • Software engineering experience relevant to the development and application of digital security technologies
  • The ability to gain UK security clearance
  • To succeed in the role, you’ll often need to provide technical explanations in layman terms, so a clear and consultative communication style is key. You will also need good team working skills, with energy, flexibility, and a constructive approach to challenges.
  • The nature of this role may require regular visits to our Cambridge site, though the frequency will depend on project needs. Therefore, you should ideally reside in (or be willing to relocate to) areas near our offices.


  • This role is based within the technology group of the Defence and Security business unit, but will involve working with teams of expert engineers and designers across the company, creating new products and services for our clients. Exact details of the role will depend on your level of experience and aspirations, but you can expect:
  • Huge variety – We work with clients across many markets including Smart Infrastructure, Autonomous Industrial Robotics, Energy, Consumer, Agritech, Defence, Aerospace, Medical and Health. We deliver technology solutions to these markets, drawing upon technologies such as artificial intelligence, advanced sensors, quantum computing, synthetic biology and across the range of connectivity technologies. We are also growing our business in creating and applying the next generation of security technologies themselves. Whilst the Defence and Security sector is a focus area for this role, you will have the opportunity to work across all these markets, providing security technology input that might range from advice on security architectures and technologies to apply, through to design and development of new technologies and systems to meet specific needs.
  • Interesting challenges – Our clients choose us for our ability to tackle some of the most challenging problems where new approaches are needed. Whether it’s enabling secure operation in high-threat environments, needing to operate at very low power or communicate securely over very limited bandwidths, or supporting the resilience of a safety-critical system, there will usually be some challenges to overcome in the design; something new to learn.
  • The potential for growth – This is a great time to join our security team as we build on our established track record with further growth planned over the next 2-3 years. There are opportunities for career growth and personal development in any or all of the three dimensions: technical, project management, and commercial / business development. You will have the opportunity to work closely with our Head of Digital Security to develop our technical capabilities and grow new opportunities for the business. As our digital security business and capability continues to grow there may also be opportunities to lead a specialist group in the area.
  • Responsibility – This will develop as your experience grows, but you will eventually be taking the responsibility for developing key aspects of systems we develop, working with (or acting as) the Technical Authority on projects to ensure the solution meets the client’s needs.
