Senior Software Engineer | Market Disrupting PropTech

Senior Software Engineer | Go, Python, Java, Microservices, AWS, Kafka, Docker, Agile, TDD | New Platform Build for one of the UK's Top Visited Websites

Location: Central London

Salary: £80,000 - £105,000 plus bonus plus incentive plan

Are you a highly skilled Senior Software Engineer with a polyglot mindset and a passion for collaborating, teaching and learning?

Do you enjoy building products that are used by millions of people and having an input into what is made?

Senior Software Engineer: We're working with one of the UK's most visited websites to grow their engineering function as they continue to build pioneering, disruptive products. If you prioritise product-ownership and want to be able to use whatever languages and technologies that you believe are best for the job at hand, then keep reading…

The role is heavily product focused, and the first product you will be building is a highly configurable platform to service the clients of one of the UK's most trusted websites. You will be developing the platform using a variety of languages including Go and Python on AWS, although they are keen to speak with any talented Software Engineers from the JVM world with the desire to learn. They embrace Agile (Scrum) practices but are not ruled by them, following TDD processes and SOLID and DRY Principles. You will really have an opportunity to influence the overall product development and outcome.

The teams are comprised of exceptionally talented engineers and are growing! We are looking for multiple Software Engineers who can challenge them and who aren't afraid to suggest new ideas, bringing with them proven 'war stories' and genuine experience, where they can advise and suggest on technology choices, new processes and techniques.

The environment includes:

  • Go/Python
  • AWS (most of the services)
  • JavaScript
  • Node/React
  • Kafka
  • Kubernetes/Docker
  • GitLab
  • Agile (Scrum), TDD
  • .Net Core

With a clearly defined career framework that prevents politics getting in the way of your progression, and a chance to be a part of something that hasn't been built before in this industry, this really could be a career-defining role for the right person.

If you're curious and fancy a chat, please call Simon Evans or reply with your CV.
