A well-known tech company in Scotland is looking for a Senior React Developer to join the team. They are very much one of Edinburgh's tech success stories and are about to start off another exciting period of growth.

They're looking for a Senior React Developer to work in a team that is starting off some interesting projects that have been in the pipeline for a while. It's part of one of their most important teams within the business and will give you the opportunity to really positively affect people's lives. The role is a brand new one within the team and with that they're looking for someone that is at a pretty senior level. As a company they're very product-driven and work with the most up to date engineering principles and standards.

What will I be doing?

You'll be expected to work predominantly on the Front End of the team's applications. It's a really interesting role in that the projects have been in the background for a while and the team have now got the time to focus on them, which is why they're looking to hire. The team is actually made up of all Back End Developers, so you'll initially be coming in as the sole Front End Developer. They'll ideally be looking for someone to help the Back End Developers to upskill in Front End Development, so experience coaching and mentoring would be absolutely ideal.

The have one code base for the product you'd be working on which includes the following tech: JavaScript, TypeScript, React, React Native, Java, Spring, AWS and more. They're looking for someone that is an expert Front End Developer that has lots of commercial experience with React - the role will initially be focused on JavaScript rather than TypeScript but there will be opportunities to move to this down the line, you would obviously have a lot of ownership of this. The company have a great culture of learning so there will be lots of opportunity to upskill in different areas and move into other teams, which makes it an excellent place for career progression.

As mentioned, this teamwork with Java and AWS, so you'll be able to upskill in this specifically.

Who am I?

You should be an experienced Senior React Developer that's excited about working with the most modern technologies. Although they've already scaled up as a company, they've very much managed to keep the feel of a young tech company on the rise and certainly don't have boring corporate processes in place.

Who will I be working with?

Their engineering teams' range in size but normally range from 4-8 Engineers. You'll also collaborate with Designers, Product people and Testers. The teams work very collaboratively and expect everyone in the team to get involved in technical discussions, so hopefully that is something you're used to.

Where will I be based and will be doing?

The company are HQ'd in Edinburgh and would be expected to be in the office once or twice per week as a minimum. The rest of the time you can work remotely.

Their package includes a strong salary on offer up to £73,000 (potentially more for exceptional applicants), excellent bonuses, private medical and much more.

If you're a Senior React Developer that wants to work for one of Scotland's most successful tech companies, then please apply and/or get in touch with Jack Steven at Cathcart Technology.

Our clients


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

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

Software Engineer – Manchester

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Data Scientist – Manchester

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

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

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
