Roke is looking for graduates enthusiastic about networking and data access problems. We have a wide range of opportunities in this area so your role will vary depending on your existing experience, our customer needs and your aspirations.

All our engineers need to communicate to a high standard and work effectively in multi-skilled teams, so good written and verbal communication skills are fundamental.
What will you be working on?
Our network intelligence solutions encompass all aspects of the value chain, from access and data capture to high value processing and analytics.

Typically, our engineers have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects ranging from research/experimental projects to enhancement of mature solutions.
We use a variety of software and develop our network protocols software in languages such as C, C++, Python and Java. You might, for example, be working on development of a network probe for data access. Alternatively, you might produce code to perform real-time network data extraction, data reconstitution, mediation and transformation.
If you are interested in analytics further downstream in the processing chain, you might create complex analytics using a stream processing framework for extraction of intelligence relevant to a customer requirement.
Competition is high and you will need a good honours degree in a subject such as Telecommunications, Network Engineering or Software Engineering. An alternative software-based degree or a degree in the Mathematics or Physics will also be considered if it proves that you have the ability and enthusiasm to solve networking problems. Whatever your degree, we require you to have some software programming experience in one or more programming languages.
