Software Engineering Taking Off at Helyx Secure Information Systems Ltd

Software engineering has always been a part of life at Helyx but recently our team has been taking on more complex challenges for our customers. This has been focused around long running research and development projects in the areas of secure managed services, remote sensing, edge computing and information dissemination especially in environments where networks are challenged for bandwidth, latency and connectivity.

Our projects are increasingly using a cutting-edge technologies, such as AI, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Zero Trust Architectures, Mesh Networking, Encryption and Data Centric Security. These all require complex orchestration and integration into existing and emerging systems and capabilities. We are at an exciting stage of development, where some are moving from research into operational trials and production.

We have created a dedicated research and development network that allows our engineers to use the latest tools and techniques whilst at the same time working to security best practices. Our whole team has a collective responsibility to the continuous improvement of this network, as well as our ways of working, and other technologies that can contribute to doing this better. We have also invested in a best-in-class hands-on learning and development platform to ensure that our people are equipped with the skills they need in the latest technologies.

Our software and DevOps engineering team is growing, and we are always looking for new people to join the team. Do you want to help us develop the next generation of technology to support the UK’s critical national infrastructure and help make our country a safer place to live? If you have an inquiring mind, are motivated solving difficult problems and a desire to never stop learning, and want to use a breadth of technologies then reach out to us at Helyx to discuss opportunities.
