After working at Elsevier as a contractor for 14 months I made the decision to join Elsevier as a permanent member of staff.— Indra Purja, Software Engineer
Associate IT Graduate
Working in the tech team at Elsevier gives me the chance to get involved in all stages of the software delivery life cycle.
I joined Elsevier after graduating from university with a degree in Business Information and Technology. One of the first projects I have been able to be involved in is supporting the end to end delivery of a contemporary order management solution. This project will greatly improve the internal operations at Elsevier. – It’s great to be part of something so critical to the business.
Working in the tech team at Elsevier gives me the chance to get involved in all stages of the software delivery life cycle; including requirements analysis, development and testing. Being exposed to all these areas provides me with a good understanding of the business which is really important for someone like me who is quite new to this industry. What excites me on a daily basis is being able to keep up to date with leading technology solutions – this can bring us challenges but also helps me to develop problem solving skills. This makes the job more exciting and constantly reminds me of the final goal that we are working towards.
Elsevier supports and encourages self-development in many ways, for example I have the opportunity to work towards an industry approved qualification and take part in soft skills training sessions. This balance of learning on the job but having the support and training to succeed is what makes Elsevier such an exciting place to work.
