Take me to...
Are you a recent graduate looking to get your start in Software Engineering? Do you want to solve real-world fraud problems for some of the globe’s biggest organisations, using some of the most exciting technology on the market? Help our Engineering Team fight financial crime worldwide through our year-long graduate scheme beginning in September based at Featurespace HQ in Cambridge.
Our Scheme gives graduates a taste of 3 different areas of our Engineering function. Each rotation is 4 months in length and can be chosen from the teams below.
Joining small, supportive, and friendly teams, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn and grow as Engineers, as we learn and grow as a company.
You’ll be paid £35,000 per annum and will be eligible for our full range of benefits, including flexible working options, fridges packed full of edible treats and drinks for lunches and snacks, free weekly takeaways at our Cambridge office (think pizza, Thai, pasta, Korean BBQ and much more!) and an invite to our amazing company socials!
Through our Scheme, you'll have a chance to rotate through 3 of our Engineering teams. Check out the applicable teams below:
Development Operations are responsible for the technology and tools to ensure the scalability and maintainability of the ARIC platform, while also ensuring operational reliability - particularly in the context of major 'state change' operations. This covers, for example, ensuring ARIC can be easily configured, deployed and upgraded by our customers. The team is responsible for the ARIC Installer, much of the diagnostics tooling, and parts of the CI build system.
The Data Infrastructure team own the ARIC real-time/batch event ingestion components, integrated monitoring system and various third-party components, to ensure optimal system performance. The team is also responsible for a variety of general platform tooling and downstream functionality including the asyncoutput framework and reporting.
This team creates the technology that powers our real-time analytical platform, a high- performance distributed computing framework to allow our customers to operate Featurespace- and customer-managed analytics over large volumes of data.
Works on short/medium term projects that don’t fit within the medium/long-term plans of other engineering teams. These are typically customer focused and time-sensitive, and frequently involve integration with third party or customer systems.
The UI team creates the visible (front-end) face of ARIC, allowing the platform to be easily navigated by our customers, enabling them to manage their deployed analytics and to perform incident management to detect fraud effectively and quickly. - The UI Client submits user requests to the UI Server which maintains an abstraction layer to other platform components and data stores.
Responsible for ensuring the "deliverability" of ARIC as a platform. Acting as an interface for Delivery teams to report on problems with installations or upgrades, implementing new features within the ARIC platform to support management of things like configuration and providing frameworks and best practices for other Engineering teams to use when making sure new features are deliverable
Responsible for pushing our analytics and machine learning into new areas, productising research that comes out of our data science teams and making the machine learning used by our platform top of its field.
Great to haves include:
“At Featurespace I am completely independent, trusted and at the forefront of innovation, working for one of the most cutting edge companies.”
Araliya – Head of Financial Crime
You’ll work within small teams to design large-scale, real-time distributed architectures, deliver new features (from specification, through development, QA and into final deploy), provide input into future technology development, and support your code throughout its lifetime on our grad scheme.
As the scheme comes to an end, graduates have the opportunity to specify their preferred team to join permanently, and we will do our best to place them in the most suitable role.
Charlotte - Senior EngineerI really like the light management; essentially I'm trusted. My manager will say "Hey, we need this implementing" and I'm not micromanaged, so I can come up with the solution myself and if I need help from other members of the team that help is always going to be there.
