Ask the difficult questions, go against conventional wisdom, challenge the status quo. Because Luke didn’t just wake up with a new hand.

Manage small and large-scale pieces of application development. Some of it’s like blowing up the Death Star and some of it’s like climbing a mountain on an island for three hours.

Be part of an innovative and nimble technical team developing fast-paced cyber solutions for our customers. Be Luke.

Integrate user-facing elements with server-side logic. Tear this ship apart until you’ve found those plans!

Prioritise development to maximise commercial benefit and returns for our customers. Be Obi-Wan.

Travel at the speed of light. Get things done. Fast. But robustly. Go to Tosche Station to pick up power converters.

Work with customers and colleagues, understand their requirements, and keep them engaged. Be Lando.

Tell us what your go-to tech stack is and why. We're assuming C# .NET Core SQL AWS/Azure Python here. Because someone really goofed with that Meridian trench and thermal exhaust port.

Define the product roadmap working closely with our Head of Product. Leia popped a hologram in an R2 unit in 1977. You can do a Word doc or two in 2021.

Create and maintain deliverables across the project lifecycle. Research and innovate, spearhead initiatives using cutting-edge tools. It’s not heroic, but do it right and they’ll love you. Like Chewie.

Develop, construct, test and maintain complex pieces of code. Leverage APIs. We won’t lie. This sounds like stuff C-3PO would do while everyone else is running round with lightsabers.

Manage confidential and proprietary information. Cut someone’s hand off? Maybe wait a while before bragging you’re their dad.

You’ll need a Computer Science Bachelors and/or Masters. It’s not like you can be a scavenger or a farmhand, then suddenly save the galaxy… oh.

You are accomplished. Professionally and socially. Wow us! Rey’s cool when she’s being badass. Then it turns out she’s down with the Force. Have strings to your bow.

Solid verbal and written communication, and analytical and technical skills. Little-known fact: Boba Fett maintained an erudite, helpful blog. At least until he fell in a pit.

Entrepreneurial flair, can-do attitude, hungry, ambitious, innovative, self-sufficient. Be Han.

It pays up to £75,000 plus benefits. Yoda doesn’t get out of bed for anything less.

Interested? Send CV + covering letter. That’s right you don’t go fishing without a hook. May the force be with you.
