About us

Solirius Consulting delivers technical consultancy and application delivery to our clients in order to solve real world problems and allow our clients to respond to an ever-changing technical landscape. We partner closely with our clients, embedding our consultants into their businesses in order to provide a bespoke service, allowing us to truly understand our clients’ needs.

It is this close collaboration with our clients that has enabled us to grow rapidly in recent years and will drive our ambitious future growth plans. We currently have over 250 consultants working with a variety of key clients from both the public and private sectors such as the Ministry of Justice, Department for Education, FCDOS, UEFA, International Olympic Committee and Mercedes Benz; with plans to increase our client base further in the near future.

We operate as a flat organisation and believe in trusting and supporting our team to operate independently. We pride ourselves on being specialists at what we do, making the most of our consultants’ expertise in their fields in order to provide a best-in-class service to our clients. All our consultants have the opportunity to work on a range of different projects, providing a broad range of knowledge on which to develop their careers and progress in the direction they choose.

The role

About you:

You should have some academic or commercial programming experience and a genuine interest in technology. You will be critical thinking, enjoy tackling different problems in a structured way and are a highly motivated self-starter. You should have great interpersonal and communication skills and a strong desire to deliver the best possible solutions for our clients.


You will ideally share our values and be aligned with our ways of working. As your career progresses, you can expect to work across all areas of the development lifecycle, from strategy to development to implementation, and to take on assignments in different sectors. This will provide you with a broad base of experience from which to build an outstanding career. Candidates should be open to working in different locations for different clients. Although most of our work is in London, candidates should be happy to travel as client needs dictate.


Main duties:

  • After training, you’ll be working as a Java or Python developer on one of our client projects, typically moving onto other client work after 6-12 months

  • Responsible for developing features, fixing bugs, updating applications to comply with government standards.

  • Being part of a larger team - working with and learning from senior developers within the team.

  • Helping with internal applications or other work when possible.

  • Working closely with clients to understand their needs and working within the team whilst on client site.

  • Helping us to grow our Software Engineering practice.

Typically, you will work on a particular project for 6-12 months before moving onto a new challenge. You will be part of a larger team, working with and learning from experienced consultants. As a consultant, you will work closely with our clients, helping to ensure that the project delivers great outcomes.


Specialist skills required:

  • Scientific or technical degree, or a relevant professional qualification, or equivalent experience

  • Some experience in software development, using Python or Java (or related technologies)

  • Understanding of common programming models (client/server, web based, integration)

  • Some understanding of DevOps technologies (Git, Docker, Jenkins, Travis or AWS)

  • Understanding of development methodologies, Agile and Waterfall

  • Good grasp of relational or non-relational databases (MySQL, Postgres or mongo DB)

  • Web technologies (front end particularly, a clear understanding of HTML, JavaScript, CSS, etc)


Upon joining our Software Engineering practice, you will typically be assigned to a particular capability (e.g. Front End, DevOps, Data Engineering) based upon your skillset and available projects for our graduates to join. However, these capabilities are not set and there is the opportunity to experience a number of different capabilities during your career with us, and to eventually specialise in the areas which suit your interests and skills.


Package and benefits:

  • Competitive salary, dependent on experience

  • 25 Days Annual Leave + Bank Holidays

  • Flexible Working / Work From Home

  • 10 days allocated development training per year
