Senior Software Developer

Glasgow | £40,000 - £65,000 | Permanent

Published: 31.08.22 Ref: BBBH39595_1661965172

A well-established Tech Consultancy based in Scotland are on the lookout for a couple of skilled Senior Software Developers to join several of their Agile squads. They're offering the opportunity to work with a really modern tech stack (or even cross-train in something new), where you will be building really scalable greenfield solutions in a really fun and flexible work environment.

They've got a really busy pipeline of projects, really strong relationships with their long list of clients which spirals across multiple sectors (Fintech, Renewables, Oil & Gas, Public + many more!). It's a really unique environment where Developers can have a lot of choice in what projects they want to join and tech they want to work with - this is really highlighted with the tenure of many of their team, as many have been with the business for 5-10 years (it's really uncommon for someone to have a short-stint here!).

The company are fairly tech agnostic, they tend to use what fits the project best - which is why it's so important to them Developers are offered the opportunity to choose which projects fits their strengths and interests. However, to give you a flavour for some of the technologies used; Java (largely Spring framework), .Net (C# / .Net Core), Python, JavaScript (ReactJS, NodeJS + TypeScript), and Cloud Services (Azure + AWS). Don't worry they aren't looking for a "ninja" here, merely someone that has experience with at least one of their programming languages, whatever your background.

You'll find yourself joining one of their Agile squads (circa 6 Devs depending on the project) and usually you'll be with the project from its initial design straight through to its completion - so you'll really pick up good exposure to working on large-scale projects. The teams are also really well defined as each will usually have a Project Lead, Software Architect, Front-End, Back-End or Full Stack Developers, UX Specialists, Automation Engineers and DevOps Engineers - however there is plenty of scope to pick up exposure / experience in other areas, especially with DevOps for these roles.

What separates them from other consultancies is you'll never be offshored to their client, you'll work within the business at all times (either onsite or at home). They also have a pretty strict no-overtime policy, as they're massive on finding the right work-to-life balance - so fortunately no really tight-deadlines or working late into the night. On top of this, they offer really flexible working - they're a family first organisation so the school drop off / pick up or even mid-day nursery appointments are all fine here. Not to mention, the company run multiple events from guest speakers to even weekly lunch treats for the team!

They have offices in Glasgow City Centre, and offer really flexible working. They ideally hope people can pop in once or so a week for SPRINTS / Meetings / Tech events etc but are pretty flex. All interviews and on-boarding can be done remotely too.

Salary for these roles range from about £45k to £65k, with scope for a little more if someone impresses (even more for Lead). This is on-top of a fairly competitive benefits package which includes a £1k annual training allowance, good pension, loyal rewarding holiday scheme + many more.

If you match most of the criteria please apply or give Doug at Cathcart a call.

Our clients

Candidates

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

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 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

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 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

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

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

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

Data Scientist – Manchester

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

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.
