Mid / Senior Software Engineer (Python)

Mid / Senior Software Engineer (Python)

Glasgow | £40,000 - £70,000 | Permanent

Published: 25.05.23 Ref: BBBH42720_1685043299

A cutting edge start up in Glasgow that specialise in developing software tools that have revolutionised scientific research are looking for a couple skilled Python Developers (Mid/Senior) to join their exciting new team.

The company was founded in the last couple of years and they have since grown the team to around 25 employees, with hopes to double this by the end of this year. Their products aim to streamline the research process and aid development by leveraging their knowledge of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence.

You'll work heavily with Python so ideally; you'll have a few years of commercial experience with this language. You will play a crucial role in the design, development and maintenance of the company's software tools, working alongside a talented team of developers, chemists, engineers, and data scientists.

The Senior Engineer will be expected to bring a few years of experience working in a similar level position. You will be expected to lead the design and architecture of the company's software systems whilst mentoring and leading their team of developers to deliver their high-quality products. For this role they are looking for exposure to containers and deployment technologies such as Kubernetes. This isn't a requirement for the mid-level position (but it will definitely make you stand out if you have exposure to these!)

They're based in Glasgow and are hoping you can visit the office at least twice a week, but there is some flex on this. Salaries range from £40k to £70k depending on ability and experience.

If you think you'd be a good fit for either of these positions, then please apply and / or reach out to Max at Cathcart Technology for more information.

Our clients


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

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 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.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

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

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

Software Engineer – Manchester

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

Data Scientist – Manchester

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

Software Developer – Northampton

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

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

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

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

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

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.
