Placement Engineer - Civica Digital Solutions Ireland 

"1) The projects I work on encompass a wide range of technologies used by web applications today. That, combined with a very helpful team allows me to learn more about the technology and grow as a professional. I also enjoy attending the social events that our Sports & Social team organizes.   2) As a trainee graduate engineer who works full time at CDSI and studies part-time with the Open University, the flexible working hours are a big help for me because it allows me to make the most of my time. Some days I am able to do more work and other days I might need more time to study."

 Business Analyst 

“As a Business Analyst in Civica, I have been working for variety of Public sector clients which is a great opportunity to meet different people within our public services. My experience working with public services in diverse areas have been very rewarding and enriching. The development team around me is brilliant and willing to go lengths to achieve excellence, senior members are supportive and work as part of the team which is an add-on benefit. Apart from work there are other fun activities organised by Sports and social every now and then is very enjoyable. The flexible timing allows me to manage a perfect work life balance, considering I have a young devil at home!”     

Graduate Software Developer, Civica Digital Solutions Ireland 

“I’ve had some health issues in the past and the company has always been really accommodating. Their flexible working hours and the option to work from home means that I can balance my health and work without any negative impacts on my career or my wellbeing. The outdated “one-size-fits-all” approach isn’t used here; there are good policies to help guide us but if something isn’t working, the company is willing to work with you to try and make things better.”     

Senior Software Engineer, Civica Digital Solutions Ireland

You will never be left alone with issues. We are not just colleagues, also making friends here. We organize a team trip every year to expose new cities and new cultures.”
