Software Engineer / Senior Software Engineer
Salary: £38K - £60K per annum

Software Engineer (up to Senior/Principal level) - rapidly growing Fintech startup in Edinburgh city centre.

You'll join a smallish team working on a Fintech product - and growing quickly. The team are mixed career levels and come from different backgrounds; there's really no hierarchy and there's a lot of autonomy. They're friendly and work in a collaborative fashion. The leadership team are approachable and supportive.

Their technical stack is built on Ruby on Rails, JavaScript/ES2015 and React/Redux. They're happy to consider cross-training from a different background (Python, Java, PHP…) - they're pretty agnostic when it comes to technology, but they do want to see adherence to good Software Development principals and commitment to code quality. While you won't have any management responsibilities but should be happy guiding other Engineers in the team; leading pair programming and performing code reviews.

Some of the stuff they're passionate about (if this matters to you too, you'll fit right in!):

*Low technical debt - they allow time for Engineers to do the job well.

*Small pull requests and very frequent releases.

*Unit testing.

*Code reviews.

*Solid Agile/DevOps culture.

The pace of work is quick; they release several times per Developer per day. They're a dynamic startup, working in FinTech and with some disruptors in the industry! They are extremely user-focused and test design concepts before building.

The salary on offer is up to £60,000 and there is a good pension (matched contribution up to 5%), 34 days holiday, free lunch Fridays and perks/discounts on top. They work on MacBooks with external monitors - but you can pick your hardware if you have a preference.

Your skills and experience should include:

*Ruby on Rails (or other OOP - Python, Java etc).

*JavaScript, ES2015, React, Redux.

*PostgreSQL, GraphQL.

*Previous experience in a SaaS environment.

*Experience with Scrum, Kanban, XP.
