Job Description

The Company

Nothing solves business problems like good software; and when it’s designed specifically for a client’s needs there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing their business grow.  Working at Software Solved, you’ll have the opportunity to be a part of ground-breaking Mobile, Cloud and Data software solutions that do just that. 

Clients trust us to develop quality software that empowers thousands of users to do their jobs better – day in, and day out.  Our software helps RSA provide a real-time view of insurance risk and Save the Children cure more children from acute malnutrition.   We help The Royal British Legion deliver services faster and manage their data more effectively….  as part of our team, you’ll be trusted to work with these high profile clients as well as new business opportunities. 

We’re lucky enough to have our head office in the vibrant South West, giving easy access to the London plus all the benefits of being by the coast.  Established in 1998, we’re committed to developing our people and invest heavily in training with a current programme including Azure, Xamarin, HTML5 and Power BI, and with a focus on user-centred design, it’s never been a more exciting time to join us. 

Our Undergraduate Scheme

We have been running a successful Undergraduate placement scheme since 2007.  This is a structured scheme with mentors in place for each individual and a portfolio of project work dependent on your skills, expertise and desires.

We wish to offer up to two placements to high calibre individuals to assist the company in its excellent pattern of growth.  Working as a developer in our highly successful team, in our Exeter office, you will have the opportunity to work on the development of in-house systems as well as having exposure to other areas of software development such as DBA and Website Content Management. The work will be varied and challenging and is an excellent opportunity to develop new and existing skills. In this role you will work alongside existing members of the team, however there is the possibility of client facing work. There will also be the opportunity to work within different technical teams during your placement year.
