Software Developers wanted in Counter Terrorism

The Technical Innovation and Development Environment (TIDE), part of the National Digital Exploitation Service (NDES) within the Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) is a team of engineers, software developers and Cyber Specialists whose remit is to understand the rapidly evolving technological landscape and to use their skills to enable investigators to continue to keep pace with terrorists who increasingly utilise complex technological means in their attempts to carry out attacks and to thwart the efforts of Law Enforcement.

We are currently looking to augment our fast growing team at our West London base and are looking to employ
three Software Developers from across a wide spectrum of specialisms.

As you would expect, the role is not your typical computer/digital related job. It is an exciting and varied role which like much of Law Enforcement can vary from day to day. It requires dynamic individuals able to provide bespoke solutions to increasingly complex technological problems, plan for those inbound, be proactive in innovating and be able to drop everything and quickly focus on an urgent operational need. Areas of current operational interest include, encryption, cloud, vehicles, big data, and hardware exploitation.

The skill areas that we are looking to fill include any (or a combination) of the following:

.NET (VB, C#, ASP.NET, .NET CORE), MVC Framework, Python, Java, JavaScript (Node, React, Angular), LAMP Stack Development, Working experience of Docker and/or containerization technologies, Mobile and/or Desktop App Development, Cryptography, SQL, SQL Server and NoSQL technologies (PostGres, ELK, mongo).

We offer a starting salary on Band N of £38,531 plus allowances for those individuals with the right qualifications or experience.

Unfortunately, owing to the sensitivity of the material that we deal with on a daily basis, employment within Counter Terrorism is restricted only to UK nationals, with a requirement for our staff to hold National Security Vetting (NSV) at Developed Vetting (DV).

If you would like to discuss these opportunities further, please contact Detective Sergeant Femi Omole on 02071611993 email:
