Software Engineer

£45,000 to £75,000
Job Type
9 Jun 2022
Multiple roles for Software Engineers (Senior to Lead level) - an opportunity to join a well-respected company who have a solid focus on quality and a long list of happy clients to attest to this.

You'll spend almost all of your time working from their office in Edinburgh city centre. You may occasionally travel to client site (they are a really consultative group and so understanding client need is key), but you will not travel extensively - unless you want to! Unusually, for a consultancy, most Engineers are office-based (with some home-working post-covid) .

Most of the time, you will work in smaller teams of five or six across disciplines - Software Development, Test/QA, UX, Product Owners - and will take ownership of a specific project/client. You'll be involved in the full lifecycle and will be developing bespoke systems for their clients. It's very varied work - you may work on desktop, web or mobile products.

They strive for good work/life balance. It is not an environment that encourages overtime/burnout culture. They set realistic timelines with clients. There's also a strong culture of actually taking lunch breaks - you can even take an extended lunch if you fancy the gym/a run/gaming session.

There's a solid culture of professional development. You'll be assigned a career mentor with whom you'll have regular reviews. You can train in new technology and it's common for their Developers to gain certifications/accreditations.

Technology-wise, they are agnostic and really just want to hire good Engineers; they don't get bogged down in tech stack. They work with C#, Java, JavaScript, React, Angular - but will also use the "best tool for the job" and are always open to new tech, too. There's a lot of modern tech and a lot of projects are cloud-based.

Salaries are extremely competitive (up to £75,000 at Lead Developer level) and there are good benefits on top; very strong pension, holidays, income protection, discounted gym/cycle to work, career development/training, regular social events.
