The central focus point for the Development Department is that the technologies they use are cutting-edge, aligning with the agile agenda and they WILL prioritize you becoming an integrated part of that vision. They are not just talking about new technologies, they are seizing the opportunities – investing both time and money into your education, not just leaving it to chance and off the clock hours. Thus Centrica Energy fully understands the necessity of investment in order to achieve improvement.

The most important thing is that you have a passion for delivering high quality software solutions. It is as simple as that. We need this to be a good match for you too, so if you like close collaboration with internal customers on all phases of a product's life cycle and if you have a strong team player mindset, this position will fit you well.
 It is important that you strive to learn and understand the energy trading business domain and that you like to explore new technologies and continuously expand your skills set.
