I should like to apply for the role of Software Engineer as advertised recently.
I have a degree in Computing Science and am very familiar with Java and C++. In tests, I score highly in programming and analytical capabilities and aptitude.
I am currently working for IBM developing and maintaining server technology. This involves me interacting with both business functions and programmers, as part of a large team of coders and developers, explaining business functions to programmers and technology issues to non-technical business managers. I enjoy this aspect of my job very much.
In order to be successful in my role, it is vitally important that I am able to deploy keen problem-solving and analytical skills in the numerous day-to-day activities I undertake as I am tasked with taking requirements and conceptual ideas and creating a software blueprint, managing the programming stage itself, and finally, running a series of tests and modifications.
Even though I develop various products, I also oversee the entire software product process from design with graphics artists, to marketing the product to clients.
I should now like to move to an independent IT market leader where I will be able to progress to a more senior management role and I feel this position is ideally suited to my expertise and capabilities.
I enclose my CV and am available for interview at your convenience. References are available on request and I very much look forward to hearing from you as appropriate.
