Software Graduate Roles

There are many different roles available across all levels at Alchemy. Academy 8 will specifically recruit and train the Technical Analyst role.

Technical Analyst

Our Technical Analysts work in tandem with the client’s internal team and partners to address their needs and become a trusted adviser. During projects, they will identify customer business requirements and use Out-of-the-box Insurance Solutions while leveraging their configuration capabilities to meet customer requirements. Technical Analysts are expected to spend the majority of their time on site with the client, working alongside the business and technical teams.

Applicants must have a good academic result (such as a BSc in Computer Science or equivalent from third level institution) with the minimum level of education require being a HND in an IT related discipline. We also welcome applications from MSc graduates of technical disciplines.

Technical Analysts need to have a good technical grounding with an understanding of programming languages including Java, SQL, C# and C++ as well as an awareness of Object Oriented Design principles.

The roles normally require frequent travel in the UK and wider Europe (with the potential for travel to North America and Africa). Due to Covid -19 Alchemy has moved to a remote working model however, we do expect that at some point travel will be reintroduced and you will be expected to spend part of your time on site with the client, working alongside the business and technical teams.
