“I work in the recruitment department of MicroStrategy. The reason for this communication is we are currently looking to hire two or more computer sciences or possibly maths statistics graduates immediately as our graduate training programme has re-started. Ideally, candidates would have between 0 – 1 years experience and typically, if they have completed a work placement, this is an advantage but not a necessity as long as they have SQL, knowledge of databases and experience of one or more programming languages.
We are not looking to wait until the next round of graduate vacancies, rather we are looking for individuals who are in a position to start in March or April or possibly sooner if they are available more quickly. Naturally, full training is provided and they will be sent to Poland for 5.5 weeks to learn our technology platform.”
