Lead Software Developer

Edinburgh / Remote

£negotiable + benefits

This is a brilliant opportunity for an experienced software engineer with knowledge of Python to lead the development of a new product within an established investment-tech innovator. You’d be joining a very collaborative start-up environment on the cusp of new investment and expansion.

Their developers all work across the full stack – and there is a great deal of interaction between various product teams, driven by genuine care and curiosity for each other and the work being carried out.

You’d be at the forefront of a new era of growth for one of Edinburgh’s most exciting start-ups, working with a team of brilliantly talented engineers under the direction of a CTO who combines technical expertise with fantastic management and leadership ability.

This would suit either an established Tech Lead/Lead Engineer looking to move into a new, challenging and rewarding position; or, a senior engineer with ad-hoc project lead experience hoping to cement themselves as an out-and-out lead.

Ideally, you will demonstrate experience in areas like:

Python: all back-end code is written in the language, so familiarity with it is a must.

JavaScript: ideally, you will know the React framework, used to build their UIs.

Senior/Lead experience: you will have worked as a senior on projects or within a team; even better if you have led the delivery of products across the full lifecycle.

AWS: They manage their infrastructure via AWS with modern devops practises i.e. CI/CD pipelines
