Senior Software Developer ( .Net )

Edinburgh | £50,000 - £70,000 | Permanent

Published: 28.03.24 Ref: BBBH46152_1711649444

Established SaaS organisation with offices in Edinburgh and London are looking for a skilled Senior Software Developer, with good experience using the .Net framework, to join one of their core cloud product functions. Flexible working and modern tech on offer.

They've been operating for well over 20 years now and their products are used on a global scale. You'd be joining one of their core product functions that's still fairly new to market as it was just launched about a year ago. It's a live data-streaming application that's used by some really reputable organisations to make informed decisions - it's a business-critical product for both them and their customers.

You'd be joining a distributed engineering squad made up of roughly 15 techies, that's rich with experience. As the product is fairly new to market, you'll spend the majority of your time doing large feature work and will help out with the multiple tech upgrades they have planned throughout the year. The product is currently written on .Net 6 (they're already planning the move to .Net 8), it's hosted on Azure (they use a lot of the Azure services here) and the front-end is written in Angular16 + TypeScript. They are pretty flex for this role though, as you can work solely in the back end or Full Stack - it's your choice!

The company place a really strong importance on software developments best practices (Design Patterns, SOLID etc) and are looking for Developers that have worked in this kind of environment before.

You'll ideally have several years of experience with most of the following;

** .Net framework (C# / .Net Core)

** Databases (ideally NoSQL)

** Azure or AWS

** Working within a product environment

The following is highly desirable;

** Angular / TypeScript

** Terraforms

This is a great opportunity to join a fairly new product function within a really established organisation - If you're keen to keep up to date with the latest versions of technologies then this is the perfect place for you.

Their offices are based in central Edinburgh where they have a flexible working arrangement; you can work hybrid or part remote - you'd be expected in the office about once or twice a month for team meet-ups but that's it.

In return they're able to offer a salary from £50k to £70k (could be scope for more) with some good benefits to match (8% pension, bonus, private healthcare and much more!).

Our clients


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

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

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

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 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

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

Software Engineer – Manchester

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

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

Software Developer – Northampton

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

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

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
