Graduate Software Engineer - 2023
We’re looking for enthusiastic Graduate Software Engineers to join our engineering team at Rokt. You’ve studied hard, completed labs, had some experience and now you’re ready to start coding and ship. With Rokt we’ll give you the tools, support and environment to get straight into coding. You will join a team of experienced engineers who are passionate about writing world class code.
In your first week you’ll have completed your first task. In your first month, you will have completed a number of fixes and features (at least one of which will be in production), started peer-reviewing your colleagues’ code and you'll be participating in team task estimations and have a growing understanding of your team's systems. By the end of your first year, you will have led design workshops, started to master a handful of technologies and taken primary responsibility for a small system (or a component in a larger system).
While you start with one engineering team, your opportunities will be throughout the engineering structure and you'll work with other teams to get exposure to the whole business.
Engineers at Rokt are not afraid of a challenge; we thrive on using our creativity and delivering suitable solutions. Find where your true passion lies!
