Ref: 5685

Software Engineer 
UK Remote
This leading, remote-first healthcare data science/bio-informatics client have put everything in place to ensure their culture and environment at the very least matches, and in many areas exceeds, their competitors. Innovation isn’t just about technology and product – it’s about listening to your staff and being attentive to their physical, mental and intellectual needs.
So, let’s start with what they are able to offer YOU:
  • They have successfully implemented a condensed, 9-in-10 working fortnight, with every Friday given off without any reduction in earnings. This has been hugely successful for the company, with many enjoying the extra day off with family, to explore personal projects, or simply unwind in their own space. This is a huge perk that cannot be understated!
  • Properly fully remote work within the UK - (they don’t have any offices – so they’ll never renege on this)
  • £500 per annum personal training budget for every staff member regardless of position, seniority, or team
  • Private healthcare for you and your family (mental health, physical health, gym, spa, etc.)
  • Generous Pension; free flu vaccines; enhanced maternity & paternity pay
  • Competitive salary
No wonder they have one of the best Glassdoor profiles going, can demonstrate extraordinary staff retention and longevity, and are responsible for one of Europe’s most innovative data science healthcare platforms.

Their Azure-hosted machine learning platform fosters R+D and collaboration between people from all areas of healthcare, across the globe. It underpins ground-breaking research into disease prevention, with a particular track record in supporting such research around Cancer, Covid, and Alzheimer’s.  
As a Software Engineer, you’ll get to join a small, focused delivery team working on key feature development, devops, and testing, exploring new areas of cloud computing, AI/ML, and platform engineering. You'll be key in determining architectural and design decisions, supporting junior team members, writing fantastic code, ensuring it's all fully tested, and collaborating with the DevOps and platform teams to ensure it's all released correctly via their advanced CI/CD infrastructure.
If you have 2-3 years experience in developing sophisticated, modern, cloud-based software, and are potentially considering making a step up into an upper-mid or lower-senior level, this software engineering role is perfectly set up to provide you with that career progression. 
We are open to a range of technologies, but they typically work with:
  • Ruby - most of codebase is made up of Ruby code
  • JavaScript
  • Python - APIs built in Python
  • Cloud Computing
  • Docker
  • NoSQL DBs
  • Kubernetes
  • Linux/Unix
  • TDD / BDD
Their process is well-regarded and provides a two-way street to learn about each other and fully determine the right "fit":
  • Their Head of HR will speak with you initially about culture, environment and values
  • You will then have a fun and engaging take-home intended to take up little time but offer an interesting challenge
  • This will then be discussed in a technical interview 
  • Finally, you will meet with Senior Leadership for a "welcome to the team" type chat 
With excellent career opportunities that can be mapped out, to the salary and benefits on offer this really is a great role that will challenge you but also give you an opportunity to showcase your skills and what your can offer.
