    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    I have been working at Avaloq full-time (more than an year)


    Full of skilled and motivated people
    Half flex-time, core hours 10-4 but can be switched around in the week
    Company spends a lot of effort in the beginning on training, even including a few weeks at the head office in Zurich
    Software development is the core business, so opportunities for promotion in technical roles e.g. senior developer or software architect
    New office: raise-able desks to standing height (big plus in a desk-job profession), pool table in common area and expensive coffee machines
    At present the company has very good prospects, a lot of sales successes and a lot of future work and business to come.


    40 hour working week, bit high for Edinburgh, though flexi-time does mitigate this somewhat (in any other job you'd work extra hours at times without being able to get it back the next day)
    Swiss culture takes some time getting used to. Google translate often needed for German/French/Spanish issues/specifications etc.
    Overall benefits are good but pay for Edinburgh is a bit flat. Company seems to just try and meet "market rate".

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Avaloq in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    After CV was receieved an interview and examination was set up in the recruiter's office. It took the form of 3 parts - a multiple choice, written examination and a competency based interview.

    The time allocated for the written examination was somewhat limited and while most of the questions were designed to test and root out any gaps in knowledge, a decent candidate should have no problems.

    Unfortunately once Avaloq had received my CV and interview answers they declined to go any further, citing that my CV was too brief and my answers were not in depth enough although usually correct (despite the limited time window). It would've been preferable if Avaloq had appraised my CV prior to arranging any interview.
