Experienced Software Engineers

  • The role

    We want experienced Software Engineers who get excited about new technologies, and are self-motivated to learn new skills.  As part of our Agile teams, we will provide you with the training and the exposure to get you rapidly up to speed with Pega. So whilst you will be challenged (in a positive way) we want you to bring your ideas and imagination – we want to hear from you.

    The team

    Our teams are responsible for designing and developing workflow automation solutions using Pega. Check out if you haven’t heard of the technology before – it’s pretty impressive. Although this technology has been around for a while, it has recently been supercharged and now offers impressive capabilities augmenting workflow automation with Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. At Aflac Northern Ireland we are utilising Pega to develop smart technology solutions that will directly improve our customer experience.

    What you’ll be doing

    • Delivering high-quality, tested, secure customer-centric solutions
    • Participating in daily stand-ups and contributing to an Agile development team that values the opinion of everyone in the team
    • Utilising a range of tools and technologies that vary depending on the product and the needs of the customer
    • Continually growing and developing your technical skills through self-learning, exposure to new projects, and being curious
    • Listening to the inputs of others and working towards the best solution design that maximises the value to the policyholder, without ego or prejudice
    • Solving complex problems alongside fellow team members
    • Implementing automation through a CI/CD delivery process

    What you should have

    Below is an overview of the skills and experience we are looking for, but remember, don’t rule yourself out if you don’t have everything on the list – it’s your intellect and your attitude we are really after.


    • 6+ years as a developer/engineer in any technology/language
    • 6+ years of IT experience with n-tier, database and client server design/development
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
    • Solid fundamentals in Object Oriented concepts
    • Bachelor’s or Masters degree, preferably in a Software Development, Computer Science, Engineering, or STEM subject. Comparable commercial experience may also be considered


    • Experience with Pega Rules Process Commander
    • Experience with other low-code platforms (Decisions, Appian, etc) would be valuable
    • Knowledge and experience of DevOps as part of Agile software development
    • Experience of delivering Agile solutions for customers/clients located in different time zones

    So that’s us (nai). Thanks for taking the time to read this far (pretty impressive in the era of the 280-character tweet). We look forward to hearing from you if you fancy joining a tech company with the agility of a start-up and the stability of a Fortune 500 U.S. company.
