I hope you'll agree that there's a great opportunity here to turn a collection of parts into a well-functioning whole. We'd like this to be a lively environment to work in!

What will I focus on?

What follows is what you might find yourself doing on an average day in Intelligent Automation, but your experience will depend on the team's needs as well as your own aspirations. Our goal is to help you develop in a way that fulfils you, and create an environment where you can do what you enjoy.

  • You'll help contribute towards how we work by discovering new tools, methods, and approaches.
