What is a Cyber Security Software Engineer?
A Software Engineer has the unique role of turning complex specifications into real solutions.
A Software Engineer at Airbus CyberSecurity has hands on experience throughout all areas of the software development lifecycle, to better equip them in dealing with the real world challenges faced in the industry.
Being a Software Engineer in Airbus CyberSecurity means creating innovative solutions whilst being aware of “security by design” and defensive programming techniques.
What are the super powers required?
While being technically minded and great at developing software are key requirements for a Software Engineer, being an effective communicator is equally important! Effective communication between co-workers, suppliers and customers can make the difference between doing something good and doing something great.
Having high standards for the quality of software developed is essential. Ensuring software meets specification, is written using the best techniques and is rigorously tested ensures that the software we produce is of the best quality.
Good knowledge of both legacy and modern software languages, as well as the designs and principles behind them is a must if an effective solution is to be produced.
Working at Airbus CyberSecurity means working with integrity and strong values.
