After an initial induction period, you will work within one of our software development teams based in Croydon.
Software development at Mortgage Brain covers all areas of the software life-cycle from initial research of the available options,
through proof of concept, analysis, design, coding, unit, system, performance & security testing, fault finding, fault fixing and
technical documentation. Liaison is required with other areas of the business, particularly product managers, business analysts,
project managers, testers and support staff. We are a Microsoft environment with software development in .Net (C# and Visual Basic),
Initially you will be working in a project team on coding, unit, system, performance & security testing, fault finding and fault
fixing but as your experience grows you will be working on all areas of the life-cycle either on your own or as part of a team.
In time, there will be opportunities to mentor new graduates and to move into team leadership positions if this is the direction in which you
want your career to develop.
During your first two years you will be given paid time off to study for the Microsoft Technology Associate and Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer qualifications. Mortgage Brain will fully meet the costs of these renowned,
externally recognised qualifications.
You will undertake the Microsoft Technology Associate training during the first six months of your enrolment in the scheme.
This is an introductory Microsoft certification that addresses a wide spectrum of fundamental technical concepts.
Although only one exam is needed to obtain this certification, we believe that you will really benefit from taking the
following three courses; 'Software Development Fundamentals', 'Database Fundamentals' and 'HTML5 App Development Fundamentals'.
It is our expectation that you will pass these exams within the six month period.
Once the Microsoft Technology Associate Training has been successfully completed, you will then undertake the
Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer qualification. This is industry recognised and proves your capabilities
as a software developer in the chosen subject areas. As before, you will be given paid time off to study and
Mortgage Brain will fully meet the qualification costs. Initially, you will take both the 'Programming in C#'
only one of these courses is required for the MCSD as we'd like you to be skilled in programming in both environments.
You will then complete your qualification as a Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer App Builder by taking two further
exams: 'Developing ASP.NET MVC Web Applications' and an elective exam. The elective exam to be taken will be determined
through discussion with your manager at the appropriate time and will reflect both your preferences and our requirements.
It is our expectation that you will become fully certified within two years of joining Mortgage Brain.
