  • Improbable
  • London, UK
Grad Scheme Software Engineering

Job Description

Our Purpose
 
Improbable is dedicated to building powerful technology designed to help solve previously impossible problems and enable the creation of new realities. In gaming and entertainment, Improbable unlocks truly next-generation gameplay through virtual worlds of unprecedented scale, persistence and richness. In other industries, we hope to help answer critical questions through simulations that could lead to a better functioning world.
 
Our platform, SpatialOS, lets developers transcend the limits of regular computation, allowing swarms of servers running in the cloud to cooperate in order to simulate worlds far larger and more complex than any single server could.
 
We are a British technology company proudly building a diverse workforce, driven by a shared desire to improve and achieve extraordinary things. We’re crafting technology for the future and fostering a problem-solving culture that embraces innovation through iteration and experimentation.
 
Enterprise Mission
 
We are a customer first organisation: our engineers are the heartbeat of our business. We are providing a fundamentally new simulation technology to some of the most interesting and important problems across government, enterprise customers and academia. You will leverage and help create our next generation platform; a distributed inference platform.
 
Our engineers work closely with our customers to understand some of their most difficult problems and deliver world-class technical solutions to address them. They are builders and innovators, creating features, frameworks and systems; driving product iteration through feedback. Often the simulations that you create are first of their kind innovations on important questions.
 
They get to the heart of a customer’s needs and are instrumental in the requirements gathering, architecting and implementing of technical products and services based on our core technology. We leverage Java and C# for much of our work with additional data-wrangling with Python and associated libraries. We value pragmatism and professionalism as well as clean code and innovation.
 
You will join a graduate programme that includes an accelerator induction, structured development plan and mentorship by smart, motivated and curious people, driven by solving globally significant problems across the private and public sector; the kind of problems that keep senior leaders awake at night.
