What do I need to know?
What can I expect in the recruitment process?
The recruitment process from application will be made up of a couple of different sections, including an interview, group activities and whiteboarding. More information on this will be available closer to the time.
We conduct competency-based interviews, so you should prepare some examples from your current or past experience using the STAR method:
- Situation - describe the situation you were faced with.
- Task - what were your tasks (talk about ‘you’ as opposed to 'the team')
- Action - what actions did you take.
- Result - what was the result.
What is the Coding Challenge?
This is our shortlisting event post application, where we will invite applicable candidates to come along to our office in Belfast and hub in Galway to get the immersive experience of working at Liberty IT.
Within the session, we will have opportunities to connect with our engineers and leaders in a ‘get to know us session’ and then take part in a coding exercise – this is a chance to highlight your technical abilities and problem-solving skills.
These sessions are primarily in-person however, we will provide a hybrid option for those who require accessibility adjustments. We will have assessors and buddies from Liberty IT so that you can collaborate on your analytical thinking.
We understand that a coding challenge may seem a little bit daunting, but it's genuinely nothing to worry about – this is just a chance to engage with us, and we are excited to welcome you all!
How long does the recruitment process take?
The process timelines are available on the job details. We will keep you informed during the process and aim to give you feedback as soon as possible.

I am currently studying in another country. Can I apply for an intern or graduate role?
Our intern software engineer positions are distributed among our partner universities and third-level educational institutions, so unfortunately, they are not open to students from other universities.
