Junior Software Engineer

Edinburgh | £28,000 - £38,000 | Permanent

Published: 30.08.23 Ref: BBBH43943_1693429822

A rapidly growing MedTech organisation based out of Edinburgh are looking for two Junior Software Engineers to join a couple of their Agile squads. You'd be working on a Market leading product within a really strong technical environment - remote or hybrid working on offer!

The company have been running successfully now for over ten years and have been going through a really exciting period of growth. Over the past few years they've grown from about 40 heads to just over 100. They operate in the tech-for-good software space and are responsible for creating a very specific product which is used widely in the healthcare industry.

They're ideally looking for a Software Engineer with a couple years of commercial experience using the .Net framework to join their product focused squads. In each team, you'd find yourself working alongside roughly four Software Engineers, QA / Automation Engineer and a Tech Lead. You'll be given plenty of support and training in the role, but they're really looking for an ambitious and curious Engineer that's willing to attempt to tackle problems, ask questions and most importantly ask for help when needed.

You'll find yourself working heavily with the .Net framework, so ideally you'd have good prior experience with this language. A large chunk of the work will involve refactoring, as they're planning to break up some of the product into smaller parts - something you'll actively be involved within. The company have many exciting projects planned ahead, including a big move to a cloud native environment.

The organisation place a really big important on promoting best practices and following software fundamentals so they're ideally looking for someone that has worked in this kind of environment more.

You'll ideally have experience in most of the following;

** Commercial programming experience with the .Net Framework (C # / ASP.Net)

** Databases

** Software Testing

The following experience is highly desirable;

** Microservices

** Working with a MedTech environment

** Working within a product environment

This role would really suit an ambitious Software Engineer that's looking to join a strong technical environment within a well-established yet growing UK-based Tech Organisation.

Their offices are based in central Edinburgh where they accommodate both remote and hybrid working (your choice!) however, they do hope people can pop in for the big meetings and quarterly planning sessions.

In return they're able to offer a salary from £28k to £38k for this one, with a good benefits package to match.

Our clients


It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.
