As a curious and creative visionary, your work is at the core of everything we build. We offer a strong work-life balance & benefits, training and certifications and are remote-working friendly. Our culture is centred on embracing a growth mindset, equality and encouraging teams and leaders to bring their best each day.


Are you passionate about developing software?  Do you have a curiosity for new technology and new ways of solving problems?  Do you thrive working in diverse teams with other highly capable Software Engineers?  Do you have potential to be a future leader on technology, design, feature development or teams?  Are you interested in a role that gives you space to innovate and learn new skills?  We are now recruiting experienced Software Engineers and Junior Software Developers in Greater Manchester and Cheltenham. We also have some Software Developer roles available in Bude.
You’ll have a lot of freedom; you’ll work closely with colleagues, and we’ll trust you to decide the best way to get things done; whether something requires high quality or a quick turnaround; how best to organise yourselves as part of a group and how best to meet the needs of the mission.   
Above all there is a strong purpose to your work as a Software Engineer/Developer for GCHQ, you’ll be central to our work to keep the country safe.  


Whilst the languages we use most at the moment are Javascript, C++, Java and Python. It is far more important that you are able to learn new languages and libraries and keep yourself up to date.  
We value your engineering mindset, tenacity and perseverance with problems that seem unsolvable.  
You’ll often be working in Agile software delivery teams, your knowledge and skill across all disciplines of software will be important to your new team.  
This isn’t an ordinary software engineering job, you’ll often be required to be creative and innovative to solve problems with no precedent in other industries.  
Diverse teams really are the best teams. So, if you are excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren’t sure if you are 100% there yet... why not just give it a go!
