Senior Software Engineer / Lead Software Engineer
Salary: £50K - £60K per annum

Senior Software Engineer / Lead Software Engineer - join a dynamic startup in Edinburgh city centre!

The highlights:

*A small and friendly team (the Edinburgh tech team comprises the CTO, a Data Scientist and two Developers).

*A diverse company with a majority female leadership team.

*Important work - using exciting tech to help keep people safe.

*Interesting tech - and an opportunity to gain AWS/SaaS and Machine Learning experience.

A little bit more information…

You'll join the team as the third Software Engineer and will be involved in supporting the CTO and coaching the other Engineers. If you have previous experience in a Lead Engineer-type role, that's great, but this role could also offer a "step up" for someone in a Senior Software Engineer role.

They are a really friendly bunch and have a very collaborative working style. It is genuinely a really nice place to work and the company culture is great and extremely supportive.

In terms of technology, their tech stack is built around Ruby on Rails, Terraform, AWS, Python/Machine Learning, JavaScript and Angular (they plan on moving towards React in the near future). You don't need to have experience with these technologies, but you should have solid experience in one or more backend programming language. Experience with React/front end technologies and AWS or cloud is a bonus!

The salary on offer is £50,000-60,000 and there are some benefits on top (pension, share options). They also have monthly flexible individual benefits - examples of what folk have chosen include book tokens, massages, fruit and veg box delivery.

In terms of office versus remote working, post-lockdown they are keen to adopt a hybrid approach (ideally, three days a week in the office and two days a week at home) but they are very flexible and open to discussion.

If you're interested, please apply and/or get in touch with Rhona Kennedy at Cathcart Associates.
