Life working at borwell

Looking for a career in software engineering? The borwell business is going from strength to strength, and as a result we are advertising a career in software engineering with several entry pathways. Whether you have taken A-levels, ND or a Level 3 apprenticeship, all these career paths can lead to a career in software engineering at a reputable UK based software house - borwell.

The growth is mainly demand from existing clients as well as new clients too. Our teams are always looking for people with the potential to grow into a professional software engineering team member. Working in teams of 2-4, a Project Leader provides the technical lead and interface with the Client and the internal Project Manager. Working to quality and cost first and foremost, time pressure is removed by phasing of 'iterations' of functionality to satisfy chunks of Client user requirements. Our tools, hardware and methodology allow our teams to produce high quality solutions, which truly innovate our client's business processes.

Cyber Security Challenge

Cyber Challenge

If you are interested in a cyber security career pathway, please attempt our cyber challenge.

Brief

Consider what risks there are to borwell:

  • Who the threat actors might be?
  • What attack vectors they might use?
  • What we can do to prevent, detect and recover from a cyber attack?
  • What can we do to minimise the likelihood of and impact of an attack?
  • What is different about the risks to borwell compared to another type of business?

There is no correct answer, it would be interesting to see your response.  Imagine you were a cyber security consultant writing a report for us on the above brief.  It can be non-technical or technical, or a mixture of both.
