Testament to this was being accredited as an Investors in People Champion, as well as in recent years being ranked among the top UK and Ireland Workplaces by the Great Place to Work® Institute.

What’s more, you can ask anyone and we’ll all agree – teamwork is at the core of our workplace. Whether it be meeting project deadlines, submitting an idea to our Innovation Programme or simply deciding upon the choice of buns for a colleague’s birthday, communication and camaraderie are key.

Likewise, our social committee outings are not to be missed in either Belfast or Dublin. Events are varied in an attempt to suit all tastes and are a great way to get to know each other and foster camaraderie within our company.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Liberty IT (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I got an interview via referral, so I got a link from my pal, filled out their application online and had an interview scheduled a couple weeks later. Interview was one hour, went a bit over probably. Could have been more technical questions, but overall a good mix of questions assessing how well you work with others, leadership/customer focus, technical skills and experience, enthusiasm.
