In the race to innovate, Micro Focus customers have the clear advantage.   

Our portfolio spans the following areas: DevOps | IT Operations| Cloud | Security | Info Governance | Big Data, Machine Learning, & Analytics


At Micro Focus we develop software and build careers.

Talented software developers are at the heart of Micro Focus. Our 3 year graduate scheme places developers in an agile environment delivering innovative software solutions. Working alongside industry experts you’ll be learning on the job while being given the opportunity to expand into more diverse roles.  We enjoy a great team spirit working in a relaxed, goal orientated atmosphere on a wide range of technologies and platforms. Based in Newbury we collaborate with our Design Centres around the world to deliver high quality products to our extensive customer base. We recognise the importance of passion and talent and offer a package designed to attract and retain the best.

To join our team successful candidates will need to have good academic or industrial coding experience and a minimum of a 2:1 degree in a software related discipline. Upon joining Micro Focus you will be immediately placed in one of our agile development teams and be expected to contribute from day one. Soft skills and non-technical training will be provided outside of the development team and a mentor will support your progress as your career develops. You will have the opportunity to work with different teams and explore various potential career paths.

The successful applicant will be joining a team of highly skilled software developers producing leading edge development tools within the Visual Studio IDE. Their role will be to develop extensions to the Visual Studio IDE to support COBOL development and migrations from the mainframe. To provide the necessary functionality in the IDE the team must integrate with underlying technologies such as the compiler, debugger and run time support so an interest to develop in the back end support layers is desirable.

This is a technical development role so the successful applicant will be involved in all aspects of the software development lifecycle including design, development, testing and support.

Examples of projects on the backlog for the next release are:-

  • Supporting .NET Core application deployment
  • Extending Cloud support
  • Supporting Visual Studio 2019
