Globally known Financial Services organisation that specialise in Investment Data are looking for a Senior Software Engineer for their Edinburgh division - Fully remote or Hybrid working on offer, and opportunity to work with some really modern tech!

They've been operating very successfully now for over 30 years and are considered market leaders within their field - they've got offices throughout the globe and have recently set-up shop in Edinburgh, they've got big expansion plans for the base over the next few years.

They've already got an Edinburgh-based squad of experienced techies working on a key product for the organisation, but they're looking to really grow this function over the next few years and they'll look after a series of products for the organisation.

The work could be quite varied within the role - their Engineering Manager has really big plans for a lot of their current products, which involves a whole re-architecture and development of several (already started this for one), in addition to the multiple greenfield projects they've got in the pipeline.

You'll find yourself working across the full-stack here, so are ideally looking for Engineers that feel comfortable with both back-end and front-end technologies. In addition to this, you'll be working actively with Azure, so are ideally looking for someone that feels confident using this and it's services.

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

** .Net; C#, ASP.Net MVC, .Net Core and Web API's.

** SQL / NoSQL

** HTML, CSS and JavaScript (ideally Angular, ReactJS or VueJS)

** Azure

Experience with the following is highly desirable;

** Microservices

** DevOps tools (Docker, Kubernetes, Terraforms)

** Working within a financial / regulated environment

They're based in Edinburgh city centre, just walking distance from Waverly Station - however they're set up to accommodate both fully remote (from within the UK) and hybrid working. They would prefer to people to pop in for the big meetings on occasion - but do have some flex with this. They've got a really good culture and support collaborative working - so Engineers that enjoy this style of working will get on really well here.

In return they're able to offer salaries from £60k to £80k + benefits (8% Pension, Bonus + Much more). In addition, they're able to help Engineers upskill in some really modern technologies - you'll also be actively encouraged to help come up with new ideas / introduce new technologies that will maximise the performance of their products (you will be listened to here).

If you're keen to find out more please apply or give Doug Paget at Cathcart Technologies a call to discuss further.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Software Engineer – 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

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

Data Scientist – Manchester

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

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

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

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
