Have you ever wondered what it is like to work to build products that protect people? Or watched a Netflix crime series and wondered how that fancy computer managed to catch the baddie? On our software engineering graduate programme, you can find out.

Digital Barriers’ edge-AI and IOT solutions have led the way for our expanding channel partners across the world such as Vodafone and Fujitsu. You will help drive and deliver our “edge-intelligent” video technologies using a true full stack of AI, Machine Learning, IoT, Edge Computing and Cloud (AWS) technologies.
